Different Tools For Applying Makeup and Why Your Fingers Are The Best Option

Different Tools For Applying Makeup and Why Your Fingers Are The Best Option

Let’s talk about the different tools you can use for applying makeup! From brushes to beauty blenders, doe foot applicators, and even your fingers, there are plenty of options to choose from. But which one is the best? The answer might surprise you.

Let's start with the classic tool, the brush. Brushes come in all shapes and sizes, from fluffy to flat. They're perfect for applying powders, blushes, and bronzers. A brush can give you more control and precision when applying your makeup, allowing you to build up coverage in specific areas. Plus, they can be cleaned and can last for years, if taken care of properly. However, one of the main drawbacks is that some brushes can be rough or scratchy, which can irritate sensitive skin. It can also lead to breakouts and skin issues if it is not constantly cleaned as the bristles can trap bacteria, which goes back on your face whenever you use it.

Next up, we have the beauty blender, a cult-favorite tool that has taken the makeup world by storm. Beauty blenders are perfect for applying liquid and cream products, such as foundation, concealer, and cream blushes. They give you a flawless, airbrushed finish and are great for blending out harsh lines and edges. While the beauty blender is a popular makeup tool for its many benefits, there are some potential downsides to using it as well. One of the main drawbacks is the maintenance required to keep it clean. The sponge can absorb bacteria and other impurities, which can lead to breakouts or other skin issues if not cleaned properly.

Now, let's talk about the doe foot applicator that often comes with makeup products. This tool is typically found in liquid products, such as liquid lipsticks, concealers, and highlighters. The doe foot applicator is convenient as it’s always soaked in the product and allows you to apply the product directly to the skin, giving you more control over the placement. However, it is harder to control the amount of product that comes out of the container and the doe foot can also become dirty and harbor bacteria over time.

The best tool for applying makeup is actually your fingers. Yes, you read that right, your fingers. Using your fingers to apply makeup allows you to warm up the product and blend it seamlessly into your skin. Your fingers can also give you the best coverage, as they can reach every nook and cranny of your face. It won’t harbor bacteria as you can easily wash it before and after—please always wash your hands!! Plus, it's a cost-effective option, as you don't have to spend money on additional tools. Some of the biggest benefits of using your fingers to apply makeup is that it's a time-saver and it's a great option for on-the-go. This is why our On The Glow Concealer pods are optimized for finger application. They were designed to perfectly fit your finger and allow you to get the most out of our product.

So, there you have it, the different tools you can use for applying makeup. While each tool has its benefits, your fingers are the ultimate tool for getting the best coverage and a flawless finish. So, go ahead and ditch the tools, and let your fingers do the work. Your skin will thank you, and you'll feel like a makeup pro in no time.
