Using Your Pinky Finger in Makeup Applications

A Handy Makeup Tip That You'll (Pinky) Swear By

You might already know that the ring finger is the perfect digit to use when it comes to patting on your concealer—it creates the gentlest amount of pressure for the delicate under-eye area.

But that's not the only finger that can prove to be handy when it comes to applying makeup. Last year, Bella spoke to YSL makeup artist Dell Ashley, who offered up a simple suggestion that uses another finger: "If you anchor your hand with your pinky on your cheek, it steadies the hand and lifts range of motion that you have." It's one of those oh-so-simple tricks that you think, now why didn't I think of that? Try it next time you've got a brush in your hand.
