|Change the tool--and change your look!|
For instance, a sponge or beauty blender is what you need to create a sheer look. Being porous, the sponge, however, sucks up more foundation than your fingers or a brush unlike a beauty blender, which absorbs less. Therefore, lightly dab that loaded sponge or blender and press the foundation into the skin slowly until you get the desired coverage. Blotting gives you better control of the foundation that you’re laying down. The technique is also much better than using a sweeping motion with your sponge, which can leave streaks of the foundation on your face.
