TOOLS OF THE TRADE – FOUNDATION

spongebrushWhen it comes to applying your foundation you have three options – a foundation brush, a foundation sponge and your fingers. Let me start by telling you to avoid using your fingers at all costs. Using your hands to apply your foundation can mean losing up to 50% of the product on your hand. Not cool.

Then we have the foundation sponge. The Beauty Blender has taken the industry by storm because of its egg-shaped ‘no edges’ design. This leaves a perfectly airbrushed complexion behind. A tip to prevent your sponge from absorbing too much product is to wet the sponge down with water first and then squeeze it all out before dipping into your foundation.

A stippling brush is perfect for foundation. The brush is made up of shorter natural bristles and longer synthetic bristles. The dual-fiber brush is used for buffing and stippling foundation into your skin. To ‘stipple’ foundation for an airbrushed look, dip just the very tips of the bristles into your liquid foundation and gently press it into your skin.
