We all have our own ways of applying foundation. But whether it's worked in with a sponge or a brush, smeared with our fingers, or artfully dabbed, at the end of the day, we all just want smooth, flawless, natural-looking coverage, right?
Well, what if there were a way for your foundation to work harder for you? Yeah, we can see your ears perking up. Together with makeup artist Grace Ahn
and the brand known for high-def complexions, Make Up For Ever
, we rounded up three easy tricks for rethinking your foundation routine. And to show off each one, we called on Wildania, Wesley, and Drei. These makeup-savvy real women won our joint Instagram contest, #ShareYourShade, giving them the opportunity to star in one of our shoots. We know, tough gig. Read on to see how, by thinking outside the box, you'll never apply foundation the same way again.
