So, you’ve got this cream foundation and you don’t know how to apply it. We can fix that! You’ll need:
I chose MAC Fix+ ($19)because it’s what I have, but you could also try The Body Shop Vitamin E Spray ($16) or e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set ($3). I also tried a number of brushes including the MAC 109 and several duo fibre brushes. All left black bristles behind. I settled on the soft white goat hair MAC 168 brush ($32) – you might find a decent substitute from Sigma. For this tutorial I used Becca Stick Foundation in Praline (reviewed here). Ok, on with the show!
Start with clean, moisturized skin.
Apply your cream foundation in broad strokes – go crazy!
Spritz your brush with setting spray and start working the cream foundation into your skin. If you start to feel a lot of drag, spritz your brush again.
Set with powder, then apply the rest of your makeup!
And you’re done! See? That wasn’t so bad.
Do you ever wear cream foundation? How do you apply it?
