Makeup and girls have this kind of friendship which is unbreakable. But like makeup is important, its application with a good applicator is also essential. Sometimes it is seen that due to the lack of a good applicator, our makeup has creased or has become cakey. This is mainly the case of foundations where a good applicator is a must. Now, foundations can be applied in either of the 3 ways – Foundation Paint Brush, Kabuki Brush or a Makeup Sponge/ Beauty Blender.
