How to apply foundation using a sponge

Your rating: None
Using a sponge to apply foundation helps give a flawless finish due to the blending properties.
What you'll need: 
Wet the sponge with water, squeezing out any excess water. You want to sponge to be damp so it doesn't soak in too much foundation.
Using the sponge in the foundation sparingly, dot the foundation around your face.
Blend in short downward strokes for fuller coverage, use longer strokes for lighter coverage.
Use the other side of the sponge to blend in the foundation in downward strokes as that is the direction of hair growth.
A simple but effective way to ensure you apply foundation evenly.
