How to Apply Foundation

A FULL FACE OF FIT ME
  • Want to know all about foundation, like where to put foundation, how to put on liquid foundation, how to use powder foundation, and more? Maybelline New York can help! Learn how to use and apply foundation and get the perfect skin complexion using foundation, powder and concealer.

If you want to apply liquid foundation with a brush, it’s not necessary to wet it!
Dab the foundation with your brush and apply by tapping on your forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks. Add more or less depending on how much coverage you prefer.
For a seamless application, dampen your sponge with a bit of water. Dab the foundation to your sponge; start from the center of the face and work outwards.
It’s totally up to you! When using liquid foundation, start with a pea-sized amount; add more for heavier coverage and less for lighter coverage, depending on your needs.
