6 Foundation Sponges & Brushes For A Flawless Finish

Know which one is the best for you

When it comes to achieving a flawless finish, the application process matters as much as the product. From the famed BeautyBlender to stippling brushes, gives the rundown on the differences between each type of foundation tool.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

The interesting shape of this sponge – which is often compared to the beautyblender – is not just for its aesthetics. You can use its various surfaces for specific areas and concerns. Use the flat edge for the eyes and nose, then the tip for concealer application. Here’s a tip: to achieve the best finish, use this sponge dry for powder foundations and damp for liquid foundations.

Kabuki Brush

The Kabuki brush is usually reserved for finishing powder. But if you’re travelling and on a look-out for dual-purpose items, you’ll be glad to know that this brush can also be used for applying foundation. To avoid unsightly brush strokes, remember to buff the brush in a circular motion when applying the product.
