BRUSH/SPONGE/HANDS

Despite my silence over the past few weeks, most of you have been interactive and I love it. I have received a few requests and suggestions of the things you would like to see on the blog and I will do my best to deliver.

Today’s post is a response to a lovely young lady in Mauritius. She would like to know what she can use to apply her foundation for a flawless look…

When it comes to choosing the right tool for your application, it all depends on the foundation formula you use as well as the desired finish. A brush will give you a more polished, almost too perfect look. Using your hands will give you a more natural finish and a sponge has a really smooth finish.

While it is possible to achieve a flawless look with all three options, one needs to have a well prepped face for the foundation to set well. CLEANSE, TONE and MOISTURISE before you apply any foundation.

If you use liquid foundation (oil/water based) like myself you will find that using your hands is easier and cheaper because you have control of the product and the natural body heat allows the foundation to set properly without leaving streaks or spots. Never use a sponge on liquid foundation unless of course you can afford to buy a new foundation every 2-3 weeks. It soaks up a lot of the product.

A cream foundation is an option for those with dry skin. This formula is hydrating to the skin and is best applied with a sponge because it offers more coverage and precision.

If your skin is oily, powder foundations are the way to go so you need to invest in good makeup brushes. All powder products should be applied using a brush in order to achieve a matte, smooth finish.

I hope this is helpful 🙂

Stay fab and flawless!
