A good selfie often starts with good canvas and e.l.f.'s Selfie Ready Foundation Brush is here to help. This brush has been compared to Kat Von D's Foundation Brush and based on the stellar reviews, it works just as good. This brush buffs foundation onto your skin for a soft, air-brushed finish. But it doesn't end there, it's also great for seamlessly blending concealer or cream blush, too.
