Beauty Q&A: How Can I Avoid Makeup Brush Strokes When Applying Cream Products?July 02, 2020
The Right Way to Apply Cream Makeup Products“When using cream products, you want to use a brush that has firm bristles,” says Ashley. Reach for a synthetic brush that will work well and is easy to clean, like the NYX Professional Makeup Multi-Purpose Buffing Brush. When applying a cream product, make sure that you blend very well. “If you do not blend with the brush correctly, you will end up with makeup that looks heavy.”
How to Avoid Makeup Brush StrokesAvoiding brush strokes on the face when applying cream makeup products comes down to how you use the brush to apply it. “Avoid using sweeping motions with the brush — instead, use a soft, circular buffing motion,” says Ashley. Keeping your strokes short will help avoid any bristle imprints.
Or, Skip the Brushes Entirely
An alternative option for applying cream products is to not use brushes at all. “I like to use the sponge dampened with a little setting spray to get a soft application — and setting spray will also add longevity to your makeup.” We recommend the YSL Beauty Top Secrets Glow Perfecting Makeup Setting Spray.
