Get a Natural FinishFingers vs. Brushes: Brushes will give you more precision with liquid or cream foundation, but using your fingers allows the product to blend into your skin better (see: those brush strokes that belong on a painter's canvas, not your face). Face powders and bronzers are an "absolute no" with your fingertips, says Bass. "The moisture on your fingers reacts with powder and will make it cake, which is never a good look, especially on a large surface, such as your face, when you want a super smooth finish," she explains. "Brushes allow you to shake off extra product and to get a sheer, even finish which is impossible to achieve with fingers alone."
