If you wear tinted moisturiser, you’ll love a beauty sponge.
A workman is only as good as his tools. The same is true when it comes to make-up. Step forward the flat-topped, egg-shaped Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, R139,95, that gets into every nook and cranny of your face. Wet the sponge, squeeze out and then pat your foundation across your face. It gives a soft-focus finish that can be built up.
