MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation and Brush 187SE

Best foundation and best foundation brush. MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation and Brush 187SE my new LOVE. The foundation itself has a great feel and finish and is super long wearing. I prefer this brush (187SE) on a regular flat foundation brush for applying liquid foundation.

What I do is I dispense few pumps of liquid foundation on the back of my hand then tap brush 187SE on to get liquid foundation on brush and then tap (not brush on) on my face. This way you are not caking your face with foundation. The effect is more like an airbrush effect. The brush bristles diffuse the foundation and allows for sheer yet buildable application. Also it cuts down foundation application to 30 seconds! I’m big on quick yet effective makeup. I’m a busy lady you know:)))
