How to Apply Your Liquid Foundation

Applying liquid foundation can be a bit tricky, especially when you don't have the right tools. Is it better to use a brush, a sponge, or your fingers? We'll explain it all!

"Can you explain how to apply liquid foundation with a brush, because I do it with my fingers."

I assume that if someone asks the question, they are not alone with doubts!

Apply Your Foundation with Your Fingers

Applying foundation with your fingers is not a bad idea. The key is to adapt to the product. I recommend applying the product with your fingers if it's very sheer. Fingers have the disadvantage of leaving streaks.

With a BB cream, a tinted moisturizer, or a foundation with light coverage, you can dab the product with your fingertips, as if you were trying to work it into the skin, but gently. These small movements will limit streaks, unlike dragging the foundation by pressing too hard, which usually results in an inconsistent finish.

Apply Your Foundation with a Sponge

A sponge is a makeup tool that really revolutionized my life when I discovered it. At the time, I wasn't using foundation because I found it too challenging to apply.

The principle of these sponges is that they are used damp. This matters! Moisture, along with the tapping motion, facilitates blending the foundation into the skin. The sponge applies the foundation while blending, providing hydration, resulting in good makeup. For me, this is truly the most suitable tool for beginners.

A slight drawback, the sponge being a sponge, it may tend to absorb the foundation, wasting some product. So, it's more suitable for thicker foundations that hold up better than very liquid foundations. Don't forget to clean it regularly to optimize its use!

Apply Your Foundation with a Brush

The brush technique always scared me a little until I started to really appreciate it.

I recommend using a brush with liquid foundations; that's what maximizes the coverage of the product that can be quickly absorbed by a sponge, as mentioned above. The key is to choose an appropriate brush. As many sellers had advised me, I used a flat brush for a while, believing it was the best. In my opinion, this is the best way to get streaks! I really saw the advantage when I started using brushes with very short and dense bristles. They allow the material to be distributed without demarcations and blend it at the same time.

In brush descriptions, look for the term "buff," which completely describes this action that blurs the product and blurs the skin.

How to Use the Brush?

It's quite simple! I suggest applying a few dots of foundation on your face instead of a large amount on the brush. It will give a more even result.

Start by stretching the material without pressing too hard with the brush (tap on the skin to avoid streaks) and tap all over the face to even out the skin. Add a bit more foundation if the coverage is not sufficient, in the same way. I recommend doing this several times rather than applying too much at once to achieve a more natural finish.

In my opinion, using a brush is more challenging with thick materials because streaks are harder to avoid. It's doable but less comfortable than with a liquid foundation.

On the other hand, dense bristle brushes are ideal for stick foundations, whose material is usually harder to stretch with a sponge, for example.

The type of foundation application depends on the foundation!

In summary, if you use a very light and liquid foundation, applying it with your fingers shouldn't be a problem. For light coverage, quick application, and/or slightly thick foundation, the makeup sponge is ideal. To maximize coverage, especially with a very liquid foundation or to spread a stick foundation, I recommend a brush with dense bristles. In general, I advise testing what works best for you. Still, I know that some of my foundations look beautiful only when applied with a brush and not with a sponge, or vice versa. Test, and you should see the difference quickly!
