Professional make-up artists and expert beauty influencers keep repeating it: to achieve a successful complexion, you must above all arm yourself with the right tools. Thus, before even thinking about applying a foundation, a covering foundation, a concealer and a fixing spray, you must have in your possession a brush worthy of the greatest professionals or a beauty competition blender. Moreover brush or benty blender what is the best ally to apply the foundation?
Foundation application: brush VS beauty blender
Who better than one of today’s hottest professional makeup artists to answer that question? Carina Châtel confirms that there is no right or wrong school on this point: “I do with both! The brush to spread well without losing too much material, something that happens when you spread the foundation directly on the skin with the beauty blender. But the sponge remains essential to blur the ‘traces ‘ of the brush. The combo of the two therefore allows a perfect result”.
Why the “puff” is the buzz on TikTok
For the past few weeks, a new tool designed for the application of complexion products has literally been buzzing on social networks and more particularly on TikTok. This is the “puff”, the iconic cloth sponge often supplied with loose powders, setting powders and certain powder foundations… which is making a comeback with a brand new silhouette. Exit the round shape, the puff is now triangular to perfectly fit the curves below the eye. It is indeed designed to apply the fixing powder under the eyes in the most even way possible.

Some even go so far as to apply their concealer as well, as the format is practical and effective. We note that it is also used to (re)draw the contours of the face to perfection and is therefore useful for hollowing out the cheeks, refining the chin and any kind of technique related to contouring. Results after using this famous puff: a smooth and uniform finish, better hold of the powder over the hours, an instant and effortless “baking” effect!
