How To Apply Foundation: 
Fingertips VS Sponge VS Brush

So what is the best way to apply foundation?

Your fingertips:
They naturally produce oil so applying foundation with your fingertips can lead to breakouts because the oil from your hands can be damaging to your pores when mixed with foundation. Applying with your fingertips also spreads bacteria from your hands all over your skin, you use more foundation than needed when applying with your fingertips and can give you an uneven finish, which has you using more foundation. 

If applying foundation with your fingertips works best for you, I strongly recommend washing your hands and always get in the habit of sanitizing your hands before you apply foundation.

The Sponge:
Applying foundation with a sponge will give you great coverage and appear like it is your skin. Sponges are cheap and perfect for blending the edge of your face and hard to reach places like the nose. But...they soak up most of your foundation, so you will be using more foundation than needed which leads you to replacing your foundation more often. Your sponges become full of bacteria and the next time you use it you are spreading bacteria to your face which leads to breakouts. You can also buy the disposable sponges and throw away after one use.

The Brush:
A foundation brush is a staple beauty tool. Applying foundation with a brush is lightweight on your skin and gives you a natural finish. It uses the right amount of foundation that you need, not like wasting it with a sponge. A good quality brush can last you years but you do need to keep your brushes bristles clean. You can buy brush cleaners or you can use shampoo and conditioner as well.
