Who would have thought that applying your foundation with a sponge would be a good idea? Because it turned out to be a great one.
Quite a few times I walked into Boots, picked up the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, put it in my basket and then put it back without buying it. Mainly because I thought that applying my foundation with a sponge would not beat using a foundation brush.
I then received the applicator as part of a Christmas present from my cousins…and now I rarely touch my foundation brushes.
Name: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
Price: £5.99 for 1 or 2 for £9.99
To use the sponge simply rinse under warm water and squeeze a couple of times until you can feel the sponge expanding. Squeeze out the access water and dry using a towel.
The shape of the sponge makes it very functional: The flat round face is what is used to apply your liquid foundation to the main base of your face, and then you have pointed edges to target the contours around your nose and eyes.
