Unless you’ve found a foundation made from heaven, getting a perfectly smooth application straight from the pot is not the easiest.
And if you’re not into brushes or using your finger tips to apply your foundation, you might want to take cue from makeup artists all around the world and use a tiny wedge cosmetic sponge. This is one of the easiest – and best – ways to apply foundation; and an even better way to get a truly smooth application, though, is this little secret: dampen the sponge.
Yep, that’s right: good ole water. Wet your makeup sponge slightly and blend the foundation into your skin. This allows a smooth application and will brush over fine lines like a breeze.
Allure Magazine also has a tip concerning a damp sponge, but is a slightly different method. Instead of applying the foundation directly with your damp sponge, apply your foundation on your skin first, then take the damp sponge and go over your face to smooth it out. As they say, “This removes any foundation that has settled into lines, and creates a soft finish.”
Either method works due to the sponge being slightly wet. Try it out and let me know what you think.
