Flawless Foundation Application

1 May

Share

Every woman who wears foundation is constantly in search of a flawless finish, and the tool to achieve this with.   I recently spoke with an actress who sat in my makeup chair and complained about all the foundation choices available today.

She has spent a fortune on foundations over the last year.  I asked her to apply her foundation for me so I could see what the problem was, and as I suspected, it wasn’t so much with the foundation but with the technique and tools she used to apply it.

One of the newest beauty tools to hit the market is the BeautyBlender makeup sponge.  It’s an egg-shaped latex-free sponge that has no sides or sharp angles allowing an easy and perfect application.  The only drawback is the price- $19.95.  This just seems a little high for me when it comes to a sponge.  Afterall, eventually you are going to want to replace it.  Even my favorite foundation brush is less expensive.

But an alternative has been found- the new Fabulous Finish Blending Sponge is almost identical to the ever popular BeautyBlender.  One third the price, this new little find has become one of my secret tools.

It really does create a flawless finish for foundation, and makes application a quick and easy 1-2-3.   Rinse it out after every use with a drop of your favorite facial cleanser and allow it to dry.  It’s latex free, hypoallergenic and mildew resistant.  So there’s no need to worry about it. You can also use it to clean up under-eye spills of your eye-shadow.  This is one of my new must-haves in my beauty bag.    Use, rinse, dry and forget about it.

Stay Gorgeous Girls….
