I've always heard that applying foundation with a brush was the best way, but I never had occasion to try it. Well, that's changed, I splurged on a brush so I could try this technique. All I can say is Wow, What an improvement! My application, as well as the finished look is way better. I'm glad I tried this. If you haven't tried this yet, do. You won't be disappointed!
(Note: This probably sounds wierd, but I love using my concealer brush to apply my "touch pad" liquid blush. It's less messy for someone like me (who's a big time cluts, btw). I just tap the brush on to the "touch pad" to pick up some color. Then, I gently pat it on my cheeks & blend, blend, blend! Looks nice.)
