How to Apply Liquid Foundation | Makeup Tips

One thing I get a lot of questions about is
exactly how to apply liquid foundation, so here are some tips on what to do. There are several different ways you can apply
a liquid foundation. I have for example, three different brushes
here that I use. There’s the regular flat foundation brush
that is used for liquids, obviously. You can also use this type of brush for contouring,
different things that are a little more specific. You can also use a fluffier brush like this. You want to make sure that they’re synthetic
fibers because real hair is a little more coarse, so it’ll soak up the liquids. It’ll glide a little bit better as long as
the fibers are synthetic in the brush. Then I also have a kind of flatter brush which
is better for buffing. This one will build coverage a little bit
more than something that’s a little more loose like this one. So if you’re looking for fuller coverage you
can do something like this. Then the last option is a sponge, trusty old
sponge. I would say in amounts of coverage, you’re
looking at most with this one, next with this one, next one down and probably about the
least amount of coverage you’d get with a sponge because a sponge soaks up a little
bit of the foundation with it. Today I’ll just show you a quick little way
to apply it with a brush, because maybe that’s something new to some people. Sponges are pretty typical. I’m going to use this buffing foundation brush
and a little bit of Make Up Forever HD foundation. I love this foundation. It’s great for cameras, it’s great for pictures,
film, whatever you’re doing. It looks very flawless on the skin and it
can be a range of coverage. You can sheer it out, make it more natural
or you can build it up and get it to full coverage. It’s also oil free and good for any skin type. So, what I’m going to do is just take a little
squirt on the back of my hand, you don’t have to do this, you could always squirt some on
your fingers, do a few dabs across the main areas of the face and then buff it out. But I like to use my hand as a palette. So I’m going to take a little bit, load the
brush like this, make sure it’s evenly into the brush, and I’m going to start by applying
it in buffing motions. So I’m just kind of doing it on the jaw line
right now. One of the main areas that people get redness
is right through this area in here. So usually when I’m starting from scratch
with my make-up, I’ll start in this area and then kind of build outwards with the foundation. But it’s really, really simple. Anyone can do this at home. Applying a little bit, kind of take it onto
the forehead. You can buff it. It’s nice because I already have some foundation
on, but this is just building the coverage and it still doesn’t look cakey. That’s why I love this foundation. A little more on the tip of the nose where
I get a little bit of redness. And that’s how you apply liquid foundation.
