How to Apply Foundation Like a Pro

"It's really important to just stipple, or to tap," Jennings says about applying your foundation. "A lot of people tend to wipe when they use brushes. But the technique is really about pressing or tapping because you have more control, and the result doesn't look as caked on."

He recommends using a small contouring brush like the MAC 109 Brush ($35), which is ideal to use for the tapping technique over a standard foundation brush.
