Could my makeup brush be breaking me out?

You should wash your brushes every 3 days or so (if it's a liquid foundation, I'd suggest more) because your oils from your face can get on the brush and then reinfect you.

washing is important, but some brushes are just irritating to the skin. I've never found a brush that did not make me feel itchy. I don't like makeup brushes at all.

It could be your brushes.. But i recommend cleaning your face brushes that you use for face poweders every 3-4 days with a gentle mild baby shampoo because there can be bacteria buildup.

I wasn't using mineral makeup with Bismuth Oxychloride--one brand was one that's never been mentioned here, the other brand was Lumiere. I'm really just wondering if the material of the brush itself could have been making me break out.

Also maybe its not from ur MMU or brush, something in your regimen? Have you started something new?

It may depend on how hard you're pressing the brush against your face. Also some brushes are scratchy so that may be an allergic issue!
