Making your foundation last longer has nothing to do with your application tool and everything to do with your technique.
Whether you use a sponge, brush, or your fingertips, the place you begin applying your product is what makes the biggest difference.
“I like to start at the centre of the face where there are naturally more shadows and discolouration,” Roxy Saffaie, a Burt’s Bees celebrity makeup artist told Well and Good.
Start applying your foundation in the middle of your face and work your way out.
“As you blend the colour outward, you might not need any extra makeup over on cheeks,” she says. “You can sheer it out, and that’s how it will look the most natural.”
As a result, you’ll end up using less foundation and hopefully save yourself some money.
