Welcome to another round of Makeup Wars! This time, we’re supposed to share our favorite makeup brush. You know me, it’s SO HARD to choose just one!

This is the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush. It’s cruelty-free, made from synthetic bristles, and from recycled PET bottles and recycled aluminum. And yes, it’s vegan! The bristles are very densely packed, making it perfect to distribute foundation on the skin. While I’ve exclusively used it with liquid, I’m toying around with picking up a second brush for powder and cream foundations. It just works so well with liquids that I’m only using it with those right now.


This brush has revolutionized foundation for me. Before this brush I primarily used my finger tips to apply liquid foundations, using a brush only under the eyes. On rare occasion I would use a pointed foundation brush.  I’ve been using the Optical Blurring Brush with the stipple method and I can’t believe the difference in how foundations look on me with it! I think it looks amazing.

My UD Naked Skin Foundation Review

I can’t get over how gorgeous I look when I use this brush to stipple on foundation. As you know, I feel that flawless skin is key to any good look, and if you can only focus on a few things, I’d make flawless skin one of those things (with eyebrows and lips second and third).
