How do I apply Foundation?

Brush it with a toothbrush

There are a variety makeup brushes. The three most well-known types are the smaller foundation brush that has densely packed bristles, the standard powder brush that is a big brush with bristles spaced out and the kabuki which is a stiffer brush with bristles that are more densely packed which can hold more makeup in a smaller area and offer greater coverage for each layer. For all three types of brushes, the method is identical. Only difference lies in the sheerness of your coverage. If you need a greater coverage or you’re just beginning, you can use the traditional powder brush.

For a more extensive coverage, you can go for a kabuki brush or the smaller powder brush.

If you’re making use of loose powder press a small amount of the powder into the container’s lid and swirl the brush within it until the makeup is incorporated between bristles. Remove the excess. There should be only a tiny amount of makeup on the surface on the tip of your brush. If you notice a lot of makeup, you might have applied too much powder. Try tapping the brush again, or gentle run a tissue across the brush’s top to take the excess.

If you’re applying pressed or pressed powder that is more moist and more pliable, just swirl the brush around several times. When using liquid foundation, apply a small amount, less than the size of a dime on the palm of your hand, and then lightly submerge the brush into the liquid. A smaller brush will work to use for liquid and pressed mineral foundation brush supplier.

After you’ve put the foundation, you want applied to your makeup brush, lightly rub the foundation into your face using circular motions. Cover each area of your face multiple times. Cover the entire area of your jaw line, and then just below it to ensure there isn’t an unnatural “makeup line” between your neck and your face.

With an absorbent sponge

When applying foundation loose using the help of a sponge, simply tap small amounts of the foundation from the container into your lid. You can also apply it to the palm of your hand. If you’re dealing with problematic areas that require concealing such as acne marks, dark shadows beneath the eyes, or broken capillaries around your nose, first put a sponge in the foundation, then apply it over the problematic areas.

To apply the foundation over the entire face moisten the sponge, then apply the powder. Press it gently to ensure that it is absorbed by the sponge. Then, you can stroke the sponge across your face. Be sure to blend it just below your jawline to blend the foundation color with the natural skin tone of your neck. Instead of dampening the sponge using water, mix a bit of powder and moisturizer and then dip the sponge in the mix.

For applying liquid foundation or pressed powder foundation using a sponge, simply apply a tiny amount of the foundation to the sponge and stroke it across the face.

With your fingers

Of course, there’s always the old-fashioned method: using your fingers. This works well with liquid foundation. To apply the powder foundation using your hands, you need to mix it in with some moisturizer before you apply it. Be sure that your hands are clean if you plan to apply this method. This method is not recommended for those who has oily skin as it could add oil to the face by your hands.

What do you do if you have oily skin and wish to apply your makeup, but do not have a makeup brush or a sponge? You can try using the cotton ball. It’s not going offer the same amount of coverage as a brush sponge, but it can be used in the case of need.
