Is it better to apply makeup with a sponge or brush? Sprinkle recommends working with synthetic brushes if you’re applying liquid foundations, as they’re easier to sanitize, and create a smooth, even finish. “A sponge is great for sheering out creams and liquids,” he adds. “However, keep in mind that it can absorb a lot of product.”
Is blender or brush better for foundation? Winner: Beautyblender. Although the foundation brush is easier to clean and may cost more in the long- run, the airbrush finish you can achieve using the beautyblender outweighs the negatives.
Should I wet my beauty blender? According to Elasmar, all Beautyblenders should be used damp, and this is essentially a non-negotiable, “Your Beautyblender should always be used wet. You’ll know your Beautyblender is in perfect condition when it has expanded to twice its original size,” she adds.
