Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
This sponge is amazing even for full coverage foundation. It hides blemishes much better than a brush giving a more natural skin like finish. The flat side is really good for stippling foundation, allowing you to build up more coverage where you need it and get rid of excess foundation where you don’t. The pointy side is great for application of makeup under the eye area. The sponge can also be used to blend in liquid highlighter and cream blushes.
While you can use it damp or dry, I suggest that you definitely use it damp! When damp, it makes application easy and gives a flawless look. To dampen it, hold under running water and squeeze it until it has almost doubled in size. Once the desired size is reached squeeze it out extra hard to remove all the excess water.
Although the sponge doesn’t seem to absorb too much makeup, I do find myself needing to use more foundation than when I apply foundation with just my fingers.
When used dry it is not as easy to clean
