The edges of the bristles are slightly curved, and the large, domed tip is designed so you can reach and cover all areas of your face, to achieve a polished and radiant look with ease. It allows for a fabulously smooth sweep of makeup powder. The densely packed bristles are short and do not seem particularly soft when first used. However, when used to buff in a circular motion, you will appreciate how soft they actually are. The perfect choice for mineral makeup application as this particular shape consistently distributes the right amount of pigment on your face.
