Cleanse face before coating: It’ll do even matting napkin: get wet skin, and a brush (and hence the product itself) will not get excess sebum. Occasionally clean the surface of the powder – just wipe it with a paper handkerchief. Brushes and sponges is also a concern – my them at least once a week.
Do not apply the powder immediately after the cream: Wait five minutes – let it soak. Otherwise blend products on the skin and will have little sense.
Think through what effect you want: Armed with a brush – you will achieve a light translucent cover (softer and fluffier than it is, the thinner this layer). Do you want something more serious – take a sponge.
