Stipple

Definition: Stipple

In the art world, stippling is a method of drawing or painting with a series of small dots to create texture and depth. In the beauty world, stippling is a method of blending out creamy makeup products, like concealers, foundations, and lipsticks, to create a seamless, soft finish. To stipple, just apply the product to your finger, a sponge, or a brush, and use short strokes to lightly dab onto your face until blended.

Due to the gentle motion of stippling, it's also a great technique to use when you want to apply one product over another, so as not to disturb whatever product you've applied underneath. For example, stipple concealer over a foundation, or a lip gloss over a lipstick. To get a-stipplin', try Trish McEvoy The Ball Sponge Makeup Applicator ($16); Sephora Professionnel Platinum Stippling Brush ($35); or simply your own fingers.
