Best way to apply It Cosmetics CC+ cream?

I just bought the It Cosmetics CC+ Illumination Cream with SPF 50+ and I am wondering what the best way to apply a cream/liquid type foundation would be. I am trying to avoid streaks but also maintain full coverage without looking cakey. 


I already own a beauty blender but I need a more high quality foundation brush so please share what brush you use for applying foundation.

This type of foundation might work better for you with a damp beauty blender. I’ve used the regular iT CC with my fingers for quick coverage but I used a damp sponge to blend it. Beautyblender brand has the best beauty blenders.

the issue may not be what you're using to apply your makeup with. what's your skin type? dry/normal/oily/combination I think that one is made for people with normal to oily skin because it seems to dry/powder up after applying. not sure if that's the problem you're having but I thought my experience may help. I have dry skin which is why I bought a cc cream. I got the exact one you're talking about and I hate it. It cakes up and basically outlines my dry skin and makes me look like a lizard person. I gave it to a friend and I'm buying a new product because it's not for me.

@cplacr, I have the original CC cream and like using either the blender brush or a buffing brush like Real Technique Buffing Brush or the SEPHORA COLLECTION - PRO Foundation Brush #70.  Another good brush is MAC 170.
