Does anyone use the MAC 209 brush for fluidline? I'm just wondering how often I should clean it. I'm beginning to think daily so that it doesn't crust up? I try and get the excess fluidline off when I'm done using it but still. I don't think it's enough....

Both powder puffs and brushes give different results. The puff matifies more and takes off all the shine, but it also uses more powder so it gives more coverage.
For a more transparent result brushes are better.

The quality of the bristles in brushes really matters and the softer the better for powder and blushes.

Shu Uemura do the best makeup brushes, extremely soft. I think they use goats hairs, or something like that.

By the way, does anyone know where to get a product like Visine in the UK, which tones down redness in the skin?

The brushes start from around 24...but remember, you are paying for quality and the brush is just as important as the powder you use.
Personally, I adore Shu Uemura's loose powder. It gives the sheerest finish and is literally undetectable. Shu Uemura uses the smallest grains ever in the makeup world so you will never look caked up!

I've heard people recommend MAC brushes, but I can't say from personal experience.

I love some MAC eyeshadow brushes: 266 for liner, 239 for lid and crease, 219 for defined crease/lower lid, 217 for blending.

I like The Body Shop brushes I think they're the best inexpensive brushes you can find, well at least here in the UK. I really want to try Sonia Kashuk brushes but they were sold out when I visited Target.

I may be mistaken, but I think visine is to get rid of redness in the eyes, not the face.

Belle, I use The Body Shop brushes too. Their not bad quality and the bristles are good and quite soft. I would love to try applying foundation with a make- up brush. Which would be the best kind to use ? I've noticed there are alot available such as finishing brushes etc and also is better to use a foundation brush that matches the brand of foundation you use?
