Foundation Techniques Reviewed.

I wanted to conduct my own test on which foundation technique worked best. (at least for me) I tested 3 different techniques with the same foundation minus the airbrush one.
First up we have me with no makeup. Yikes
Next i used the beauty blender sponge.
This time i used my stippling brush.
and finally i used my airbrush machine.

No i will say i could have used a bit darker of a airbrush shade but i think that had the fullest most even coverage, lasted the longest but was a bit dry in feel and i have oily skin so not sure whats up with that.

The stippling brush has been my go to for years and it still has a place in my heart.

My all time favorite way to apply foundation is the beauty blender. Now you don't have to go out and spend $20 on a sponge you can get the same general idea with a damp makeup sponge. This is the fastest but lightest application. However you can build up coverage.
