Brush or Sponge?

Ever wonder to use a sponge or a makeup brush for your foundation or BB Cream? Actually, it all depends on your skin type.

Oily skin

If you have oily skin, using a sponge is recommended! The sponge is able to absorb the excess oil in your foundation/BB cream so that your face won’t look so oily.

Dry skin

If you have dry skin, using a makeup brush is recommended. Unlike a sponge, your makeup brush does not absorb any product. This means that the oil in your foundation/BB cream will not be absorbed, which will then act as a protection layer on your skin to prevent your skin from drying out.

If you have dry skin and wants to use a sponge, dip your sponge into water 30 minutes before usage. Squeeze out the water before using and this will help to create a subtle glow on your face.


Hopes this helps in selecting the correct tool for your skin!
