After seeing Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup in Rich Caramel 5W2 was the right match, Starr applied the shade all over Kim’s face using a sponge.
“There are three common tools most people use to apply their foundation, a brush, a sponge or fingers. A brush can be most useful with applying sheer to full coverage amounts of liquid or cream foundation product, depending on how much you load the brush. A brush can also assist with excellent blending on the face,” Starr explained. “For one, the longer handle allows you to blend product using both your wrist and grasp to buff, stroke, or pat the foundation on your face with ease. The bristles assist with the build and blending of the foundation shade.
“A sponge can be useful with applying sheer to medium coverage amounts of product on the face using liquid, cream or stick foundation. Using a sponge can be easier to control product application because the material and size of a sponge allows for an easy grasp and blend. Sponges also absorb a bit of product. So, for the heavy handed, a sponge will allow you to blend out product and add more where needed, avoiding a fully loaded look.”
