They are apt for blending products seamlessly and creating a smooth, even, non-blotchy finish, and they are the best choice for powder-based products. Synthetic brushes have man-made hairs of nylon, polyester or other materials. They don't readily absorb oils or powdery pigments and are best for cream and liquid products, or any application that requires precision.

Brushes are always better to use than fingers when applying foundation and concealer, as they are able to evenly spread the makeup on the face.
