Hey all,

I've heard from some people that its best to use sponges for applying foundation as its more even and easier to do.

Yet, I hear from others that fingers are better as the heat helps melt the foundation into your complexion.

I'm confused!

What do you all do and what do you think is best???

I use fingertips cause i use NARS oil free foundation,and the heat frm the fingers,as you said,helps melt the foundation.

I think it depends on wich foundation u are using

Fingers give a much more natural look and they are more hygienic (if your hands are washed ) than sponges.

I always warm up foundation in my hand prior to applying it. Too melt it a bit like Golden_Buterfly said. Foundation is allways better about 15 minutes after you apply it because of the skin that "works" it up. This just fastens up the preocess.
To achieve a perfect look, don´t forget to use a bit translucent powder with a powder puff, just to set the foundation.

depends on the foundation.

i use a foundation brush or my fingertips because:
sometimes find - depending on the foundation - sponges difficult to work with...
and always find - regardless of the foundation - sponges absorb and waste the product.
(Revlon cream (i forget the name) is the only foundation that i always used the sponge with).

I dont use my fingers or a sponge, I only use brushes I find they work the best for blending.

I usually use brushes, I find it much easier with them than with sponges.

no foundation whatsoever, just concealer with a brush and then tap, tap, tap with fingers.

Okay..so most of you use your finger tips..
What if you have Acne-prone skin such as I?
My dermatologist says finger tips are a no no esp. if you have acne..it brings on all that bacteria on your face which can cause breakouts.
So my best bet is either a sponge or a foundation brush.
