Are you using a little foam wedge to apply your foundation? Or worse, your fingers? For years I used those little wedge sponges to apply my foundation, because I didn't know any better! But several years ago, a make-up artist with Prescriptives showed me the magic that is a Foundation Brush.
Why use a foundation brush, you ask? Because it gives you a flawless finish AND it keeps the yucky stuff on your fingers (dirt and bacteria) from clogging up your pores. You must use a clean brush though! If you let it get all gunky and gross, it's no better than your fingers. How do you use a foundation brush? It's simple:
- Pour a dot of Foundation into your palm (clean hands!)
- Dip your foundation brush into the foundation, and apply it to your face.
- Spread it evenly and be sure to blend the edges.
- Clean off your brush!
The brushes come in a variety of price points. My favorite is from Bobbi Brown. You can clean your brushes with a little gentle soap and warm water. Be sure to dry them upright to keep the bristles nice. Have you tried a foundation brush? What's your favorite?
