How Do You Apply Foundation?

Recommended Posts

Okay, I usually use my fingers, because they are clean when I put my make-up on. I know some people say this is a no-no because of the oils. I have also used a sponge, but some people say this is a no-no because the sponge holds oil and dirt.

 

I got my make-up done yesterday at the Laura Mercier counter at Saks and the artist used a brush. It took longer to put it on, but the results were awesome!!!

 

Does anyone else use a brush? Sponge? Fingers?

i use a foundation brush. it makes things easier to blend it naturally and it never looks like i get a ring around my face like when i use my fingers or a sponge.

I use my fingers, but I did buy a $40 brush that I never use. I am too impatient and want quick results. If I am going out to a fancy dinner or something I use the brush since I have more time.

I use a Body Shop brush. The results are amazing and the wear is longer. When I do a party I show ladies on a mirror the difference between a brush, finger, and sponge. Get a mirror and foundation, place foundation on your wrist, and then make three lines down the mirror using your finger, the sponge, and brush. The brush will be a consistent, even application. Fingers just push the makeup to the side and the sponge starts strong but runs out by the end of the stroke. The differences are clear and I always end up selling numerous brushes. You don't have to spend alot, just make sure to get a foundation brush which is flat and full. The kabukis can be great but the application is not as precise.

Does it take a long time to apply, Lisa?

Thanks for this info. I am glad I bought my brush!

It doesn't take me long at all. I just put like 8 dots around my face of foundation, and use the brush to rub it all in. I can tell a huge difference compared to a sponge. Plus you can run warm water through the brush like once a week in the a.m., to clean it, and it dries quick. If you do that to a sponge, the sponge expands...KWIM.
