2. Opt for brushes instead
We’re all so used to the beauty sponges for our base application. However, this time around, it might be a better idea to forgo the idea. First of all, we need water to dampen the sponge, and water to clean them after using it. Please tell me everyone washes it after each use.
The Sephora Pro Foundation brush is actually at the top of the list simply because of the cut of the brush. Created to be the best for creams and liquids, it works better than your own fingers! It’s also easier to clean as the bristles are shorter, therefore less product can remain gunked up.
On days when there’s little water to spare, we don’t want to pile on the makeup. A stippling brush (in this case, Zoeva’s), is perfect because it provides a light application of the product.
Speaking of light applications, Smashbox’s Sheer Powder brush is a wispy dream. No such thing as over-applying with this beauty! It also doesn’t hold on to product as much as a more tightly-packed brush would, making it last longer between washes.
If multi-tasking is a route you prefer, the Hourglass Veil Powder Brush is the one for you. From your hard-to-reach undereye area to broader parts of the face, this brush can do it all when it comes to powdering up.
