• Swipe over skin, then dab. “To apply, first swipe the puff across the skin to spread the product, then gently dab to blend it,” says Larry. • Reach corners. For hardto-reach areas like under the eyes or around the nose, fold the puff in half and dab the foundation on gently, says Laneige trainer Tina Oh. If you find that you get through a cushion foundation really quickly, here’s how you can extend its lifespan. • Use your fingers. Instead of picking up foundation with the puff applicator, pat the cushion with your fingers, and dab and spread the foundation over your skin, recommends Clarence. He adds that you can use the puff for blending and a foundation brush to get to hard-to-reach areas. • Touch up with the puff. “Use an angled kabuki brush to apply cushion foundation at home – it picks up less product. Use the puff for touch-ups on the go,” says Larry. • Flip it over. Foundation gets pushed to the bottom of the cushion as you press on it every day. When the foundation is running low, use a clean pair of tweezers to flip the cushion over so you can continue using it to the last drop, says Chaven.
