How to Use a Stippling Makeup Brush

Learn how to use a stippling brush from makeup artist Brittney Rose in this Howcast makeup tutorial.


So one brush that I get a lot of questions about is the stippling brush. It looks kind of crazy, so here are some tips on how to use it. Basically, the stippling brush is a brush that is very thick at the bottom and then it thins out at the top. It creates a very light texture. Depending on what you're using it for, you could use it for foundation. You can use it for powders. You can use it for a ton of different things. It's really nice for anything that's cream or liquid-based because it really spreads it very nicely. It doesn't get too clogged up in the brush, which I love.

So when you're applying it with foundation, you could do a little bit of a squirt on your hand or onto your face or your fingers. Take a little bit, load the brush, and buff it. I especially like with the stippling brush to just kind of buff it in because this kind of gives an airbrush finish. It'll look very light. So if you're looking for nice, simple, light coverage, a stippling brush is amazing.

Another thing, like I said, you could use it with bronzer, which is nice because it gives it a nice thin, not too heavy bronzer look, and especially when you're doing bronzer you don't want to get too overly bronzed. So you could take a little bit and just kind of dust it right on like this. Really simple and it always looks flawless because of the way the brush is constructed. That's how you use a stippling brush.
