Ever wondered what the best method of applying foundation is… well the answer is simple, it is simply a preference and what works well for you. However, here are some key application tips for different methods of applying foundation!
Using your fingers works well with liquid and cream foundation formulas. It can also provide you with the sheerest cover, as the warmth of your hands helps to melt the base onto your skin.
Tip – Make sure your fingers are clean
Sponges provide more coverage and are good for blending cream to powder or thicker liquid foundations.
Tip – When applying foundation with a sponge, tap, don’t rub the base into your skin. This will ensure you have an even finish
A foundation brush gives you a heavier, more velvety finish, because you are painting on a liquid or cream base. This is ideal if you are going for a flawless polished look.
Tip – Make sure you clean your foundation brush regularly
My Favourite method off applying foundation is using a foundation brush.
My most loved product is the Sigma Flat Kabuki Brush F80. To see how it applies foundation, watch my youtube makeup videos on my channel MakeupbyDulcelissa.

When it comes to eyeshadow, one of the more favoured techniques is the smokey eye.
To widen your eyes, use a lighter shade in the inner corner and fan outwards with a darker shade.
Hint 1 – Applying the eyeshadow with a brush will give your eyes a transparent look, which is always best.
Hint 2 – A small touch of iridescent powder on your corner of your eyelids will make them look larger, as well as a lighter shade dusted on your brow bones just under the eyebrows.
Hint 3 – An essential component of a smokey eye is creating the v shape on the outer corner of the eye and remember always blend your eyeshadow.

Makeup tips #2 – Eye Pencils
Did you know that eye kohl pencils should be warmed up first with your hands, this will make the colour more dramatic when applied on your eyes or water line.
Hint – Apply your kohl pencil between your lashes for greater depth. Lightly pulling on your eyelid will help draw colour underneath. Finish off the look by smudging the liner with a brush but beware of closing off the outer corner, it can result in a heavy look.
My favourite eye pencil is MAC cosmetics eye Kohl pencil in TEDDY.
Hope this helps!
