Step 1 Dip the sponge into the water

The first thing you need to do is to rinse the sponge into the water and squeeze out the moisture. After that, the little dry sponge will swell and becomes extremely soft just like a marshmallow. Besides its large size, it will become a little wet so it’s easier to blend the foundation into our skin.

Step 2 Dab the foundation with the sponge

Take an appropriate amount of foundation on your face and dab your face from the middle cheek toward your hairline with the swollen sponge. You’d better select a sponge that has a large round side and a small pointed side. When you apply the foundation on your cheeks, forehead and jawline, you can use the large round side which can save you a lot of time. As for the small area like the sides of your nose and the corner of your eyes and mouth, the little sharp side can facilitate your makeup.


If you can see a distinctive difference in color between your face and your neck, it means you didn’t pick the right shade so you should select a lighter or deeper shade according to the undertone of your neck

After you finish applying the foundation to your face, you can put the rest, if some foundation is left on the sponge, on your neck so as to avoid wasting.

Step 3 Use it to apply the setting powder

The sponge can not only be used to apply the foundation, but also the setting powder. When you finish your whole makeup look, one important step is applying the setting powder. Wait for several minutes until the cosmetics on your face are totally dry. Then you can apply the powder with a dry sponge so that it can make your look remain longer. Don’t use a wet sponge for the powder will stick on the sponge rather than on your face.
