Honestly, I don’t remember how to apply foundation with my fingers really.
2 years ago I picked up a Real Techniques brush that I’ve been using all this time, taking it everywhere with me.
I can't imagine how girls apply foundation to their hands first and spread it out evenly on their faces. Where and how to apply it? And what about a great deal of the product that stays on their hands?
Well, I don’t judge anyone and I don’t want to teach you anything, I just want to share my own opinion with you. I’ve never used a Beautyblender, which is even more convenient for many girls, by the way.
The beautiful quality handle is made of thick bristles standing close together.
The bristles' edges are high-quality, so that I don’t feel any pricking. The brush spreads out my foundation evenly due to a great brush density, thus ensuring an extremely thin and almost translucent coverage.
Peculiarities: I advise you to wash your brush after every use and let it dry flat-lying in a plastic packaging, otherwise bristles may stick out. The bristles don't fall out when you use it or wash it. All of them are firmly in place, because it’s great quality. Nevertheless, one can face some problems washing it, as it’s hard to do it thoroughly due to the very brush density. It reminds me of Kabuki here, as it is also challenging when washing.
My preference goes to Zoeva, because it evens out my color quicker and with a thinner layer than Real Techniques. Real Techniques is also great, though, as I’ve been using it for 2 years and was happy with it.
