Can you use a blush brush as a foundation brush?

i want to get this travel kit thingy and like they have 5 brushes. one of them is a blush brush and i think it's perfect for a foundation brush since i do'nt use blush. do you think it's okay?Can you use a blush brush as a foundation brush?
I'm assuming you're using a powder foundation so yes that would work; but for more coverage you should use a short bristled, tightly packed brush(called a kabuki, blunt brush, or powder buff). If it's not a powder foundation you're using you're just going to end up with a big mess.Can you use a blush brush as a foundation brush?
If the blush brush is made of synthetic bristles, it could be used for liquid foundation (Is it liq. foundation you use?). But normally you need a stiffer brush for applying foundation, blush brushes tend to be a little too soft for that. Get yourself a kabuki brush if you want a multitasker. They are densely packed brushes with just the right amount of stiffness. You can apply powder, bronzer, blush everything with it.
If it looks like a foundation brush, acts like a foundation brush and conducts itself like a foundation brush, then it is, indeed, a foundation brush.

This is not exactly an earth-shattering question, but if it is important to you, then it's important to me. You go, gal!
of course. It works and ur not going to use it anyway y not use it?
yah..thats wat i do..cuz i absolutely hate blush..
You can but i'm a makeup artist and have noticed that can cause your foundation to not be as smooth, it may look blotchy almost...just use a foundation brush, you can find them almost anywhere. CVS and other pharmacies have cheap efficient brands, if you really want a nice one I recommend getting one from Estee Lauder or Sephora.
Yea you don't have to use a kabuki it just might not come out as good. Good luck!
Definatly! Alot of my friends do that, and thier i nothing wrong with it. But, If it is a very thick bulky blush brush.. does use! You want a flatter smoother brush!
Ew no! Never!
Yup. I use an eyeshadow brush to apply lipstick and a foundation brush to apply bronzer, and my makeup looks great! Go for it! ^_^
i do think its a o k!! i use a blush brush for a foundation brush it works great i don't use blush either try it if you don't like it you can always wash it off and try a foundation brush see which one works the best for you i hope this helps you i like to try different things as long as it isnt bad for me if it doesnt work i dont use it again caring for you joyce
