We keep things easy when it comes to beauty. Simple and effective tips are where it's at. Speaking of tips – fingertips! Today we recommend using your hands.
There's a reason you often see makeup artists mixing product on the back of their hand, smoothing foundation with fingers or patting blush on with a fingertip. Using your hands to applying makeup first warms and softens the product and then works to blend into skin making it look more natural and last longer.
If you currently use brushes and sponges it may take a little getting used to, but try it today and see if it changes anything. Here's a quick little extra tip: instead of applying makeup to your face straight out of the tube, try applying some to the back of your hand and use it like a palette. Use fingers to pick up a light amount of product and apply gently to face pushing into skin and blending lightly. Take a step back from the mirror to asses and apply more as necessary.
This tip is so great because it's literally at your fingertips. Learning to use your hands gives you more control and lets you assess how your skin feels and the textures of what you're applying.
