BEAUTY BLENDER, BRUSH OR FINGERS?

 Let's talk about how we all apply our BB/CC creams.I apply mine with fingers but I want to know if beauty blender is a better option?

For a BB/CC cream, I just use my fingers. I think it looks more natural and that's the look people typically go for with a BB or a CC cream.

I apply it kind of like war paint with my fingers, then blend with my beauty blender.

I use my Sigma F80 brush and kind of stipple it all over. Then softly blending it all over. Then I take my sponge and blot it all over my face. I find this method works best and looks more flawless on my face.

I use a brush to apply my BB cream, specifically Urban Decay's Optical Blurring brush. It gives me an even finish and makes the BB super easy to blend. I've never actually tried a Beauty Blender, so I'm not sure how the brush compares.

I've tried all 3 methods to apply my Bobbi Brown BB cream (which is kind of thick) and find I get the best results with the Beauty Blender.

I use my fingers or a brush, depending on how lazy I feel that day. Tinted moisturizers and BB creams sometimes end up looking better/more natural when I use my fingers. But to make short work of blending and application, my Tarte airbrush finish foundation brush really does the job.

I use my fingers for my BB/CC. When an SA used a beauty blender on me I thought it was kind of gross, it made me look cakey and you loose a lot of product in the Blender. At $40/oz I don't want to waste any and then have to constantly be cleaning the sponge! That's just my two cents.

I use my Beauty Blender to apply darn near everything.  I love it with liquid and powder foundation, bb creams, TMs, concealer, cream blushes...  I have not found a face product yet that doesn't look better (more natural, even coverage and softly blended) when I apply it with a Beauty Blender vs my fingers.

Re: BEAUTY BLENDER, BRUSH OR FINGERS?

For me, it depends on the consistency of the product.  I really like applying thicker, creamier BB/CC creams with a Beauty Blender.  I find it easier to sheer out/smooth out the coverage using a damp Beauty Blender than with my fingers.  For thinner, more liquid-like consistency BB/CC creams, I find fingers or a brush works best. Hope this helps!

Brush.

 

I've heard Beauty Blenders are best used with concealers, which are generally much less viscose than foundations.

It really is a preference thing for application.

I admit to really liking the Beauty Blender. Personally, I like the ease of application and (in my opinion - natural looking) appearance it can give.

Hi fatimamummy,

I use my fingers or a brush to apply my BB cream. I've never tried the Beauty Blender to apply BB creams, but I'm curious to see how you like it!
