Do you apply your foundation with fingers, sponge or brush?

I tried applying my foundation w a dampened sponge and I feel like I had to use 10x the amount! I didn't like it.

I usually use my fingers but the girls at Ulta said they like using a brush, which I've seen a lot of the YouTube girls do also, so I bought one but haven't tried it yet.

What do you use to apply your foundation?

I use the Real Techniques Expert Face brush.   I just dab the foundation on to my face and the buff it in.

If I'm Ina rush I use my fingers, but that's only if i am using a light coverage foundation, with the full coverage stuff my fingers don't apply the makeup evenly. My preferance is to use a brush. I dab on my foundation and buff it out in all directions. I have a few brushes. My favorites are my tarte bamboo brush and my sigma flat top kabuki

I have an airbrush gun thing for makeup artists. I adore it. In like 3 minutes I get flawless coverage and finish.

My fingers. Like jean... mostly because I'm trying to be quick. I do have a beauty blender but have yet to try it out.

But the brush jean spoke of, the sigma flat top kabuki, really is highly recommended by a lot of beauty gurus.

Instead of foundation, I blend bb cream just onto blemishes with a cotton bud, it looks really natural. Sometimes I'll blend sheer powder on top with a kabuki brush.

Thats from loading to application finished. For a fast face it takes maybe 8-10 minutes. But Im a perfectionist so I take longer than it should lol
