How to: Airbrush look with a Stippling brush/ Video tutorial

Using a stippling brush is my favorite way to apply my liquid foundation. It gives an airbrush and flawless finish that looks amazing and natural. I usually do this application for special occasion  or whenever I have extra time in my hands when I beautify myself. It takes a little bit of time, but it's so worth it. 


 I used my Sigma 187 Stippling brush. It's awesome and inexpensive!You can check out Crown brushes, Sonia Kashuk and Coastal Scents for other affordable stippling brushes.

Stippling brush is used for STIPPLING which means to dot. In painting, its a method used to make small fine dots or small spots. It's the same idea in makeup when you used a stippling brush to create fine dots on the face for a flawless finish. Just make sure you always use a clean stippling brush for a better result.

I did a swatch on my arm to show you it looks.
Keep on stippling until the fine spot disappears


Stop when you get the desired coverage and done!

Here are some photos I took right after I did my foundation to show you the finish look. Besides concealer and foundation, I'm only wearing eyeliner on my upper lash line, a light sweep of blush on the cheeks and a nude pink lipstick. They are not enhanced or photoshopped in any way. Heck, I don't even know how to use that.

  2. I have yet to buy myself a stippling brush. And stopped using my liquid foundation because I felt like I got too much coverage and it looked too cakey. Maybe I should buy myself a stippling brush and it'd come out better

  3. I hate my stippling brush from coastal scents; it's the one with the pink handle. I love it but I would love it more if I don't have to take so much time trying to get the damn hair off my face from the brush. Sigma brushes are inexpensive? O_O

  11. great video on how to use the brush Becky! Your skin looks flawless here, as always though. I love the finish, but I do agree it takes a lil more time. Have you tried the stippling brush from Crown Brush. It's the Luna Series, which are all black handles, even the ferrule. It's a great alternative and it's about 8 bucks!

  12. Gorgeous talaga! I just bought the ELF flat-top powder brush, I think I might try this technique with that. Before this I used the MAC 130 which is a small brush to stipple and buff, but I still had to use a sponge...hmm, sana this works with the ELF brush!

  15. Using a stippling brush is effective indeed! Your face looks air-brushed! So pretty! Unfortunately, I have yet to find my HG liquid foundie. My current liquid foundie makes my face super oily. Argh!

    Lots of love,
