Michelle Phan - Quick Tips: Foundation Application
This is a great video showing the results of different ways of applying foundation. She uses a lemon as an example, since the pores of a lemon and our face’s pores are very similar. She comes to the conclusion that the best way to apply is with a brush.
I use BB cream or tinted moisturizer everyday, but I always use my fingers. I used a brush today instead (because of this video) and didn’t see much of a difference, although it’s probably because BB creams and the such tend to be more forgiving than liquid foundation.
An important thing to take away from this video is that, even though Michelle is showing a great reason to use a brush for foundation, it’s important that you put on and wear make up in a way that’s comfortable for you! Regardless of what kind of advice make up gurus give, remember that it’s just advice and there’s nothing wrong with doing it your own way.
