We need to learn how to apply and set it correctly. There are lots of different ways of aplying foundation to your face. I'll try to talk about all of them, from my own experience, and a little bit research online (so that it wouldn't be just my single oppinion)
- The most popular way of applying foundation is fingers.
Cons: Not the most hygienic method, uneven coverage, hard to blend, can look streaky.
Cons: Soaks up ALOT of foundation, so it's a waste of product. You will need to clean your sponge after every use (or buy a bag full of inexpensive sponges at a department store and trash them after every use, so it is not very friendly to enviroment)
- Clasic foundation brush. E.g. MAC 190.
Cons: Soaks up foundation, can streak, the feeling of painting your face can be weird...
- Duo Fibre brush. E.g. MAC 187.
Cons: Can be pricey (MAC one costs 42 bucks), but there are some great dupes for it, once you get to know how to use them right, e.g. E.L.F brushes... or Coastal Scents Black Stipler Brush is good alternative for around 8 bucks, but it sheds. The solution to this is - you brush the brush with your hair brush (lol) every now and then and it won't shed on your face.
- You can even use your blush brush and it works good too.
- If you are using sponge, make sure to buy latex free, cause some poeple are allergic to it.
- Allways remember to SET YOUR FOUNDATION. You can do this with either loose, mineral or pressed powder. Setting foundation assures you, that it 'll stay much longer and your skin won't look oily.
- Though good brushes can be pricey, don't be affraid to invest in them. Dupes are usually pretty good, but good brush will last you AGES if you take care of it it'll give you the best results. While risking on buying cheaper dupe can be dissapointment and money down the drain.
- Also good brush can be used in more than one purpose. E.g. duo fibre brush is great for heavilly pigmented blushes, mineral face products etc...Lots of people find their own alternative ways of using the brushes, so don't be afraid to try whatever comes to your mind.
- Every method is actually good, just remeber that it is YOU however, who puts on foundation, not a tool, so to achieve the best results know how to use different brushes right and spend enought time doing so...
