Specifically a foundation brush? I've always applied with fingers but think I should be using a brush I tend to use benefit or ysl foundations - good coverage but slightly dewy/glowing finish. I'm happy to invest in decent brushes but want to be sure they're worth it before doing so Although obviously bargains would be appreciated!
I was going to say Beauty Blender too, it really is foolproof. No streaks or anything, foundation looks on point. You should be able to get a gift set reduced (same goes for brush sets actually at this time of year). Only thing is you do need to replace it every few months.
Bear with me on this I have loads of foundation brushes, real techniques, MAC, stippling ones etc. The real techniques one was my favourite but I use illamasqua skin base which is a pain to apply and it was never perfect Someone recommended this. It's amazing. Quite small but my skin looks airbrushed with it
Depending on how serious you are about not minding investing, the ultimate foundation brush is the Kevyn Aucoin brush. It's about £70 but is utterly beautiful and a completely different shape to all the others. I find it so much easier to use. They sell it in Space NK.
