    My girlfriend uses Beauty Blender. Probably so it wouldn't smear and is more comfortable to use.

    I use a brush but haven’t tried the beauty blender. Might be worth a shot.

    I’ve only ever used make-up brushes. I’m on the fence about trying a beauty blender. Using a beauty blender allegedly gives you a more natural finish. But on the downside, I’ve heard that it absorbs too much product.

    I've never had a successful result with the blender, it gives me smear marks and it does absorb alot of product.

    Brush for life yeyea

    I’ve used both but I prefer a brush. The beauty blender makes my foundation to thin. I bought this make up brush from IT cosmetics and I freaking love it.

    It could be the brush or how you apply it. I used a cheap brush once and got lines and one day i broke down and bought an expensive brush which i currently use and it leaves no lines at all.

    Yeah i use the IT cosmetic brush number 115 its like a flat kabuki brush. I usually pat the foundation on my face with it and if i sweep it on my face i sweep it in small strokes not long strokes. Then i tap more of it on my face and that never seems to leave streaks.

    You should try it with your foundation i find it one of the best to apply it with. Yeah if you sweep it on your face its more and likely going to leave streaks. Try tapping it into your skin like you do with a beauty blender.

    @~riku~ if you do sweep it on your face do it in small strokes to help blend it dont use long strokes.

    I've been told by make up artists that buffing make up with the brush (ie small circular motions) is the ideal way to reduce make up lines. I have a fairly cheap brush and buff it on with no issues. :catshrug

    Small strokes is def better than long ones too.

    Yeah you can use small circular motions i just dont. Some say its good and some say its bad. I just prefer tapping it on my face. I got the idea of tapping it from several make up artist on youtube who say tapping it in gives more of a flawless finish.

    Oh I use tapping for the places I need more make up and the buff method for the rest. It'd be far too time consuming to do that tapping method every where in my face and it'd use more make up

    :lmao

    Its not that time consuming for me but i guess ive been doing my make up for so long i can do it with my eyes closed. Plus the foundation i use is fantastic and the coverage is amazing and i suppose that helps.

    If I decide to go all out, make-up takes about ten mins to finish my look. If I just go for natural look it takes about half that. I can do it with my eyes closed too since I do it daily but I don't like to have that cake on makeup look like.. Ever.

    I also have to resort to the cheaper end of products since I can only get what I can afford. I bought foundation and lip stain last week and that's all I can afford to have with new make up for the next three months or so. :catdespair

    As anyone knows I'm not into make up as much as any other girl but if I truly had to choose I like the brush more because I can angle it in different ways in case I mess up I can reapply it the beauty blender is kinda hard to use at times when I did try it.

    Awww its ok. I cant always buy high end stuff either but i do try when i can. From what ive been told Loreal infallible is just as good as any high end. My sister makes good money and could open up a make up store with all her high end make up she buys but uses her loreal foundation the most over her marc jacob and other foundations she has.

    Usually when i go for the natural look i only use eyeliner which usually takes 5 minutes. :lmao

    Lucky :catdespair I have a nice five o clock shadow so to get a natural fem look I have to use make up to hide it. I'm good at hiding it and making it look natural but that requires a small amount of make up, concealer and lipstick

    Yeah that’s something I don’t have to worry about. Though I did have a black female I worked with long ago who did.

    PCOS is close enough, but the actual answer is trans.
