    You can buy specific foundation brushes, they're just the right shape. I also use less foundation as a result as the brush makes it go further. I got the idea when I bought MAC foundation earlier in the year and she applied some on me to test it using a brush. I knew then and there that I needed a brush.

    And this is the brush, just a Manicare one.

I'm not a fan of makeup sponges...seems unhygienic to me. At least I can wash my brush with liquid soap or a drop of shampoo.
    Sometimes brush or sometimes sponge. Sponges can be washed in soap etc but I change mine super regularly. For more affordable good synthetic brushes try Zoeva (can be bought at Sephora online) or Sigma. Or real techniques are good (but buy from iherb - sooooooo much cheaper).

    I love her so much. She has SO much knowledge and a beautiful soothing voice.

    She had the best ones I've found so far, I like her accent. There seems to be so many cheesy 21 year old American cheerleader type ones that were just cringe worthy! 😱🙉

    I use a brush to apply my foundation and I love it. I have a synthetic one from arbonne and its soo soft and lovely.
    To clean them I just bought a spray bottle of make up brush cleaner at Priceline and use that about once a week. Easy peasy!

    I forgot to mention another good one (she is young but focuses on less is more too) is Sharon Farrell. She is young but makes things simple.

    For the glam looks, NikkieTutorials, Jacyln Hill, Desi Perkins. Shaaanxo is cute and down to earth. Oh and Chloe Morello is a beautiful soul too. And down to earth. She does a mix of glam and naturalish looks.

    I could go on all day about makeup lol.

    Don't buy Revlon photofinish? It is glittery.

    You want a dewy foundation. For less expensive try Boujour healthy mix serum. This is fab for dry skin. For oily skin you may need a mattifying primer under it. You can always use a 'glowy' primer too for extra 'dew'. The loreal lumi primer is nice under foundation.

And it does make my lashes really longer.
    Rimmel lash accelerator is a fibre mascara as well I believe - just isn't the 2 step one like younique.

    I find mascara is the hardest thing to recommend. It is different on everyone and what works on me does not work on other people. So if you find something you like stick to it!!!!
