I usually wear a really light No 7 foundation and so I just put it on with my fingers. While in the US I went to Sephora and got matched for a foundation with better coverage. I opted for a Smashbox one.
What foundation brush/es would you recommend? I’m currently using a Real Tecniques one but I’m sure there must be better out there!

I'm a fan of Zoeva, their flat topped brush is great for most foundations.

Real techniques do some nice buffing brushes which are good for thicker foundations. A damp beauty blender can be great for blending in any patchy bits

I second Zoeva brushes. Great quality & reasonable prices. My fav for foundation is the buffer brush 104.
Lots of retailers online & Selfridges have zoeva in store.

Seconding Zoeva brushes, for foundation I love the 104 buffer and 102 silk finish - both are great. The Bobbi brown sheer foundation brush is also really good but I think the zoeva options are just as good and much cheaper.

I’ve just ordered the zoeva 102 brush. I’ve used the Bobbi brown foundation brush & defo prefer the zoeva 104 brush

I like RT's stippling brush, but one of my best brushes is a Primark one which cost about £3. I think it;s just called something like 'flat topped foundation brush'.

Absolutely love this kiko brush..dupe for Mac brush. I don't like flat brushes, so I love the way this applies foundation.

The Beauty Pie and Bobbi Brown brushes are great.

Sigma is also great - i swear by its 3DHD Kabuki brush, love that it is 'slanted' both ways, gets into the folds/nooks of the nose area and blends fantastically!

Are any of them any good for heavier foundations? I wear E.L Doublewear and am on the look out for a new brush too.

The real techniques sponge is the best tool you can use for your foundation , I love them !

Use it damp and make sure you squeeze it well before using.
