Tutorial Series: Foundation Application; Brush or Sponge?
As you can see from the video, the finished result was pretty close, and overall I can achieve a similar result from both.
The one area I noticed the Beauty Blender perform better was around my nose, I found the brush couldn’t get into the small crease as well so the foundation clumped there and on the small piece of skin around my nostril. It looks quite subtle in the photo, but I couldn’t have left it unblended as it was more obvious to the naked eye.
For this test I would have to say the Beauty Blender wins for an all over flawless finish, with no touch ups needed, and I would definitely recommend it for beginners.
This doesn’t mean I won’t be using my F80 any more, different foundations work better with different tools and different skin types, and with thinner foundations I’ve preferred the coverage when using my brush.
What do you use for your makeup application?
