For a sheer and even cover, dampen and dab on foundation. The broad side of the sponge can be used to smooth the product on your face. The tip of the sponge can reach into the creases that are around the client’s nose, or pinpoint the smaller areas. It can apply cream blush, remove extra product, or blend makeup lines that are harsh. Cotton Powder Puff. These are great for applying a loose powder or to cover larger areas of the skin. They are rather cheap and easy to get. You should always use on sensitive skin. Therefore, if your client fills out on their consultation card that they have sensitive skin, this is a must. It is made with cotton fibers and holds the powder well. Compact Powder Puff. A compact powder puff is great for both loose powders and pressed powders. It will leave a more matted finish and gives you better control when applying. It will be easier to apply an even coverage and makes the makeup last longer. Contouring Sponge. These sponges are great for highlighting and contouring, by reaching the areas that are hard to reach. They usually come in an egg or tear shape. They can be used with bronzers and highlighters and both cream and liquid products. It will make the colour of bronzers softer. Satin Cotton Puff. These satin cotton puffs are small and give an application that is flawless. One side has a satin fabric and the other side has a puff. They are used as a replacement puff. They are inexpensive and they fit in all compacts. Cosmetic Sponge. These come in a rectangular shape or a circular shape. They work well with powders and liquid foundations. They work with wet and dry applications. The excess liquid is soaked up by the sponge and provides maximum coverage. It works great to keep the foundation from looking caked on. Cosmetic Wedges. These sponges do not absorb the product. The sponge is triangular so you can reach crevices and hard to reach areas. It works with liquid foundation or an illuminator. Plus, you can use with concealers used to cover dark circles. They make it easier to apply the perfect amount of makeup, because they only absorb a little of it. That makes less waste of the products as well.
