Though different makeup looks can be achieved with a number of different tools, for simplicity’s sake this post is only going to focus on the most popular options: brushes and sponges. Keep reading to learn more about each one!

Brushes are typically used to apply any type of foundation, concealer, or liquid-based product — but depending on the shape of the brush and the specific product being applied, they can also be used to blend a lip color or put sparkles around your eyes. Brushes are typically made of either natural or synthetic bristles, but can also be made from synthetic fibers.

Sponges, on the other hand, are used to apply foundation and concealer more precisely; they have very soft and gentle bristles that soak up excess product, allowing you to blend it into your skin evenly without leaving any brushes or streaks on your face. Sponges can also be used to apply liquid-based makeup, but be careful — too much product (especially if it’s watery) could leave streak marks on your skin.

In short: Use different tools in different ways.

In this blog post, you’ll find the top 7 ways to do your makeup so you can create a flawless look for every occasion. Whether you’re going out for a night on the town or just opening up at work, these quick beginner fashion tips will help make any routine easier and more effective.

  1. Take stock of your skin-tone.

If you’re having a hard time finding the perfect shade for your face, take a peek at these tips before launching into your makeup routine.

  1. Choose the right foundation or corrector for your skin-tone.

For those with drier skin or blemishes, be sure to use soothing moisturizers and correctors, respectively, to avoid irritation and breakouts in the morning.

  1. Create a natural look.

For those who prefer a more natural-looking makeup style, this tip is for you. It’s simple to follow and brings about an elegant finished product. There are many hairstyles for girls which can give you a better look.

  1. Use the right under-eye concealer for your dark circles.
  2. Moisturize your lips before applying lipstick or gloss.

For those of you with thinner lips who are looking for a fuller appearance, moisturizing your lips before applying lipstick will bring about the illusion of fullness! 

  1. Be sure to blend all eye makeup.’

For those of you who have a naturally full eyelid, be sure to blend eyeliner and mascara with shadow under your eye to create a more natural, polished appearance.

  1. Blend properly before applying blush or bronzer.

If you’re not blending properly, your foundation will look uneven and your face could end up looking patchy and messy.

Bonus tip:


When applying lipstick or gloss, you have a couple of options.  One is to use a lip liner pencil. If you’re in a rush, that’s the quickest and most efficient way to apply color. But these can be difficult to work with, especially if you’re not wearing heavy colors. They tend to dry up and crumble on your lips. And they tend to be very loose and streaky, even when they are new. While they do make application easier, they don’t really help with staying power at all.

Ending Note:

Generally, you should choose the makeup brush that suits your preferences and needs the best. If you’re unsure whether a sponge would be the right tool for you. Experiment by using a few different brushes until you find one. That works well for both cleaning or applying makeup. (The best quality makeup brush should have its bristles spaced well apart. And you shouldn’t have to move it too much to get the right amount of product.) Plus, if you like one type of tool better than another. Consider buying a second tool or even a set of brushes in multiple shapes. A good rule of thumb is to buy one brush with soft, fluffy bristles. Another that has slightly firmer or denser bristles. And one with stiff bristles.
