Hot tip of the week: A stippling brush is your foundation's friend
If you’re still dunking your fingers and sponges into your foundation, then you’re certainly not alone. More people apply their base with these two ‘tools’ than a proper foundation brush, which is kind of surprising.
Of course, how you apply your foundation is at the discretion of the individual, some methods work best for others (I’m a finger applicant from way back), but of all the methods, I’ve never heard of a stippling brush application go wrong.
The great thing about a stippling brush is that the bristles thin out just at the ends, allowing the product to be absorbed into the thicker part of the brush, and then slowly released as you ‘stipple’ or ‘pat’ the brush into your face (as opposed to it getting painted onto your face in one heavy go). As your foundation is released, the thinner bristles help sweep it over your complexion, ensuring there’s no clumpy residue or tell-tale ‘brush strokes.’ It’s foolproof!
