Perfectly sized paddled brush for applying liquid or cream foundation onto your face. This brush is synthetic hair, because you will wash it more often then the other brushes. A hot tip: Just wash the hair of the brush with a tiny amount of fairy liquid or any other detergent. It will get rid of any grease off your brush. Rinse it in hot water under the tap. Just wash the heat of the brush, avoid washing the metal part, if you do so the metal will come lose and you will lose all the hair of your brush.
