4. Not Using a Foundation Brush
People. This was THE HARDEST thing for me to switch over to. But only until I gave it a chance. Now, I absolutely love it and would never apply foundation another way. Here is why you should all be applying foundation with a foundation brush and not your middle finger. The oils, and bacteria on your hands alone, will cause breakouts and blemishes. Aside from that, the brush works the foundation into your skin and pores, so that the makeup is not creating a superficial foundation mask on top of your skin. I suggest using a short hair, blunt, dense brush and massaging the foundation into your skin in a circular motion.
