Always apply to moisturized skin. Skipping this step causes the makeup to settle into fine lines, highlight dry spots and wear off faster. Moisturizer acts as a primer and preps the skin. Primer can also be used after moisturizer, not in place of, to get even longer wear.
- Apply a light, even amount of foundation with your sponge.
- Load your sponge with foundation, using about a pea size amount per facial area.
- Pat the makeup on to your face, pressing the sponge into your skin and lifting it on to the next space without rubbing or wiping it on. Wiping or dragging the sponge removes some of the makeup.
- Do a second layer where more coverage is needed.
- Finish with powder.
