What's the best way to apply foundation?

Lisa Stein, Geneva, IL

Bobbi: It depends how much coverage you want. A foundation brush or sponge gives a heavier application than your fingers, but the sponge lets you go more sheer. When I'm at a shoot, I'll use a brush first, then go back with a sponge to blend (I like the soft triangular ones). As for my own everyday application, I use my fingers because I don't carry a lot of tools with me. Whatever method you like, always finish by patting in foundation with your fingertips. When it interacts with the natural oils from your hands, it starts looking more like your own skin.
