How Do You Apply Foundation?

Applying foundation is one of those really personal things. It’s a bit like the face you pull while applying mascara – it can be categorised, yet it’s still uniquely yours.

There’s always much talk amongst the pros and the cos (cosmetic obsessives) about the best way to apply foundation.

The majority of experts lean towards a brush for a flawless finish, but I’ve always preferred using my hands as I’m a tinted moisturiser kinda gal.

Of course it depends on the type of foundation you’re going for – I’d hate to see the patchy coverage of trying to buff mineral foundation in with your hands – but in general, how do you apply foundation?
