a) either a Beauty Blender sponge or a brush is best, but I really love Tricia Sawyer's own foundation brush. She designed it specifically to get maximum benefit from this foundation.
b) Because you can use a really small amount of product and blend it into an airbrushed effect, the foundation lasts a very long time. I bought my first one about 8 months ago, and I use it at least 4-6 days a week. I'm just now coming to the bottom.

Use a primer, Tricia make's a great one. It will last a very long time I think, few mos., prime, invest in her FOUNDATION brush (worth every penny but absolutely necessary) Watch her quick DVD clip that comes with it. Buff in the foundation with the brush as a cream.
Then she makes a powder of finely milled cotton, translucant setting powder, another beautifully crafted and very unique brush. This set's the makeup for a very long day, it's all buildable but if you want all day hold, it will last.
So prime, foundation (curved synthetic brush-tapered) buff the foundation using the 2 shades, then if u can, use her setting powder, (natural hair thick one length)buff it out and you have an incredible, long lasting canvas.
I keep it very light around the eyes, she does make a dream product called "eye slept" it's awesome...
ahhhhh this doesn't show your question! It will last a very long time, it doesn't make me break out or dry out my skin.
I love the stuff, but really, the secret is in her short DVD clip's..should come with it..it's an entirely different look and tecnique than Bare Mineral's, but it last's......truly the brushes and foundation and setting powder and primer all together make an incrdible look--it' all in the "buffing".
