When applying all these foundations, I use a stippling brush to apply to face. Then I use my beauty blender or soft white beauty sponge to blot into face for an airbrushed look. The key is to NEVER use a dry sponge. Make sure you wet your sponge and ring out all excess water. The sponge expands in size and becomes even softer so that you get a streak-free, flawless finish! The pink re-usuable beauty blenders are my absolute favorite! They will cost you $20 at Sephora. They are re-usable and worth every penny. If this is a little out of your budget, I suggest going to any Walgreens and buying the Studio 35 rectangle white beauty sponges. 35 sponges will cost you $3. Let me know how many people acheive flawless skin after reading this! Until next time…
