  • for liquid I use finger tips. Using a sponge can spread bacteria and plau the sponge soaks up more than it applies making you have to buy it more often.

  • You should always use a brush or a sponge to apply foundation so you do not get bacteria and germs from your hands onto your face. This will make you breakout especially since you are using your fingers to apply something on your face that is going to sit there all day. Mixed with the oil from your skin and the bacteria from your hands you should try not to touch your face at all.

  • i use a sponge. I used to use a clean sponge every day. but now i use one side of the sponge one day, and flip it over to the other side the next day before throwing it out. May not be as clean but makes me feel like i am saving a little money! lol
