HOW TO APPLY FOUNDATION?

Whether you're a fan of full-coverage or barely-there tints, these brushes and applicators will give you just the coverage and that airbrushed finish that your skin desires.


The Top Foundation Brush for Flawless Skin

There's an art to makeup application. First, you need the right products: a foundation that perfectly matches your skin tone, a deep bronzer to warm up your face, a blush to give you a fabulous glow, and so on. So, once you've found your tried-and-tested beauty products, it becomes a matter of skill and makeup tools — including the best foundation brushes.

The Role of Makeup Tools:

The right products can only go so far, and the last thing you want is for your perfect match foundation to be applied streakily across your face. A good makeup brush can make a huge impact on the outcome of your makeup look. And they're worth it because, with proper maintenance and cleaning, they can last. A while anyway.

Avoiding Common Pitfalls:

How to Apply Foundation with these Blending Sponges

1) Prep Your Skin: Start with a clean, moisturized face. Applying a primer can also help create a smooth canvas for your foundation.

2) Dampen the Sponge: Run the blending sponge under water and squeeze out excess moisture. It should be damp, not soaking wet. This step helps prevent the sponge from absorbing too much product.

3) Dispense Your Foundation: Put a small amount of foundation on the back of your hand or directly onto the sponge. You can always add more if needed.

4) Dot Your Face: Use your fingers to dot the foundation evenly across your face. This step ensures that you distribute the product evenly.

5) Blend Away: Gently bounce and tap the damp blending sponge onto your skin. Start in the center of your face and work your way outwards. Use the rounded base for larger areas and the pointed tip for precision in smaller areas.

6) Build Coverage: If you need more coverage, you can layer foundation using the same bouncing and tapping motion. This method provides a buildable, natural look.

7) Blend into the Neck: Don't forget to blend the foundation into your neck to avoid a noticeable line.

8) Set Your Makeup: Finish with setting powder or spray to lock your foundation in place.
