The Difference Between Using A Sponge VS A Brush For Your Foundation Application
Some people love to use a brush when applying foundation, while some love to use a blending sponge. There is no right or wrong method, it’s all about personal preference. These two applicators are going to create totally different results from each other, so it's really all about what look you are trying to achieve that day.
How To Apply Foundation With A Brush
A brush creates a thicker and heavier application, and it ultimately darkens the pigment color by one or two shades. Foundation applied by a brush is most likely not going to stay in place for a long time. And if not applied correctly, the results can be patchy and uneven.
How To Apply Foundation With A Face Sponge
A silicone makeup sponge creates a thinner and softer application while also staying true to the original foundation color. Foundation applied by a blending sponge stays in place for much longer resulting in a smoother and more even texture.
I always use the Wedge Latex Free Makeup Sponge on my clients. It gives me a lot more control of the application process, while maintaining my ability to build my foundation up to the desired results.
