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.

HOW DO YOU APPLY YOUR FOUNDATION?

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. 🙂
