ultimate base set breakdown

expert face brush

Densely packed bristles buff liquid foundations into the skin so seamlessly that it looks like your skin has been airbrushed.

The firm rounded head fits perfectly around the angles of your cheekbones.

#ProTip: Dip the brush tips into a cream shade and run over the cheekbone to create a lovely highlight, or under the cheekbone for a soft contour.


miracle complexion sponge

Use wet with foundation for a flawless finish. Just dampen sponge with water, then smoothly apply a liquid foundation. Use the rounded edge for large areas, the flat side for use around the eyes and nose, and the precision tip to cover imperfections.

Use dry to press on loose powder, concealer, and cream or powder blush.

Voted #1 sponge by viewers!


deluxe concealer brush

Sam and Nic have long used the deluxe crease brush for concealer, so we added it to the base collection and changed the color so it’s easy to find and use.

Firm rounded bristles fit perfectly along the orbital bone to blend and buff out concealer.

Great for covering blemishes.

#Pro Tip: Dab a concealer over the top of a blemish and blend out the edges, then lightly sweep a loose powder over blemish to set.

And–as you know–it’s also perfect for eyeshadow!
