I’m a proponent of applying foundation with a tool (e.g. a brush or a sponge), as opposed to your fingers, because I find the finish smoother and the application more even. It’s also less wasteful since a not-insignificant-amount of product is usually absorbed by your fingers as you’re stippling. For years, I’ve toggled between two excellent tools: Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Brush and the original Beauty Blender sponge. But this week, I found something I may like even more.
