So what do you use to apply makeup? Any item or application technique that you love?

I use a mineral foundation so I use a kabuki brush. For pressed powders, I will use a sponge. Both provide good makeup application for me.

Well, I don't use foundation, but for eyeshadows I just use the tip of my fingers. I found that it works the best for me.

Foundation - tip of my fingers. I tried a sponge, but it doesn't work as well for me. Blush - with a brush. I don't wear eyeshadow.

Foundation/Concealer: fingers and finish with a damp sponge. Tried brushes, but I prefer my fingers although I am considering buying an airbrush system.

Loose Powder: brush and/or puff

Eyeshadows: brushes (pressed & loose powders) or fingers (cremes)

Blushes: brushes (I can't get into the cremes/gels, etc.)

Eyeliner: pencils or brush

I must admit that I use my fingers to apply my foundation, even though I have sensitive skin and I know it probably doesn't help with me using my oily fingers. I've tried sponges but annoys me that it soaks up all my foundation and I'm hardly getting any of it without giving the sponge half first. Stuffs to expensive.

I prefer using fingers for foundation, I don't use very much- just a little under my eyes or a blemish that popped up. I use Q-tips for a little eyeshadow (lining my eye), or sometimes my finger for under the brow. I usually go over the eyeshadow with a pencil eyeliner. I don't use blush or powder. On my lips I just use the lip gloss applicator that comes with it, and then directly apply a little lip stick if I want a punch.

I generally use natural colors so it hardly looks like I have makeup on.

I dont use foundation.

Fingers then a brush for concealer. Brush for initial powder application, sponge for touchups. Sponge tip applicator for base eyeshadow, brush for corners/crease application of darker shade. Brush for lipgloss. Fingers for liquid highlighter.
