Embrace the brush Makeup artists don't only use brushes for sanitary reasons, they're also the best way to apply your makeup. Sponges soak up too much product and your fingers can give you an uneven finish, says Tonya Crooks, makeup artist and eyebrow specialist (she's worked with stars like Megan Fox and Eva Mendes). But brushes help you apply a sheer layer of foundation evenly across your face.
And while Crooks highly recommends applying your foundation with a brush, she straight up insists you use one for concealer. "When you apply concealer with your finger, you're basically putting it on and wiping it off at the same time. And the final look won't be as smooth or as effective as if you did it with a brush."
