How Do You Apply Your Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

It’s 2015! *throws confetti* For the new year I’m going to start a Monday Question of the Day. It’ll be posted on the blog and my social media accounts(Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest). It shouldn’t be anything too controversial. I’m just looking for a way to interact with you. It will even have a hashtag #BuryMeMondays. So use the hashtag with your answer or photo so we’ll all be able to keep up. So on to the inaugural question.


Some swear by BeautyBlenders and other sponges for foundation application. Some love a stippling brush. Others like a flat foundation brush or a powder brush. And let’s not forget the people who use their hands. So how do you do it? Leave a comment below and if you want take a photo of your tool of choice. Be sure to use the hashtag #BuryMeMondays. 🙂

      1. L’Oréal true match is one that is fine if you use your hands. As well as most bb creams I’ve tried. Bobbi browns bb cream is the best with your hands.

  1. I do most of the work with a real techniques stippling brush, then even it all out with a damp beauty blender, I find applying with the blender alone takes ages and uses too much product but I adore the finish it leaves so I can’t neglect it!

    1. Thank you for your comment! After reading this I tried your method with my stippling brush. I may stick with it because it does take awhile to stipple foundation on with the beautyblender. I think I just looked at the results as the tradeoff for my tired arm. 🙂

      1. I haven’t tried the black one, but I love the feel of the pink one, since it gives me a very natural finish with the concealer I use. I’ve also used the little baby ones (the green ones), and I like how much precision you get in smaller crevices like the lines by your nose, and other areas like the under eye. Hope that was helpful!

    1. Putting it in your hand can get messy. I like it but I’m thinking about getting a stainless steel palette. I need to jump on the Real Techniques train and try some of their products. I was just in the store today and passed on them. Now I’m kicking myself.

  2. It depends on the foundation. For my lighter foundations (mac face and body, laura mercier flawless fluide and bourjois healthy mix serum) I use my fingers. When it comes to the chanel mat lumiere and mac prolongwear it is either buffing brush or beauty blender
