How should I apply to get that flawless, natural look?
I bought this product in a Sephora store after a Beauty Advisor demo-ed it on me. When she applied it, it was beautiful, flawless, and natural looking. However, I can't seem to reproduce it at home. I've tried using both a foundation brush (the same one she used) and a beauty blendr sponge. The only way I can get anything close is to use powder on top, and the Advisor specifically said that I didn't need to use powder with Double Wear. Advice?
P.S.: I have really good skin already, so it's not a matter of needing more coverage. I actually went in wanting something that would look less "made-up" and just enhance my natural skin.

I use a beauty blender, i used to use brushes and it wasn't as good. I use a pore minimizing primer to make it more flawless and use a little at a time to get the coverage you desire, then set it with a light amount of powder.

Definitely start out with a little and build it up if you need more.
I've applied this foundation with a wet sponge and a m439 Morphe brush. I like the wet sponge method better but the brush is faster. If you do use a sponge, you should wet it first to get an easier and more fuller application.

I must completely disagree with the Sephora employee. Please don't use your fingers with this foundation. You won't get that "flawless" look you're going for. I use a flat foundation brush to lay this on my face (downward strokes) after I apply my moisturizer and primer....then I use a beauty blender to quickly blend the foundation into the skin....fingers will not give you this same effect....hope this helps!!

I get a flawless look and I have combo skin with a damp makeup sponge I use Sephora's and it's perfect! Also don't try to use a lot of product, get a little and then you'll see that a small amount is enough to cover your face otherwise it will look heavy and Cakey.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with Sephora Staff! Applying with fingers will NOT give you a flawless finish as you will not gain the same coverage - and if you are buying Double Wear coverage is a benefit! Instead damp (rather than dry!!) a Beauty Blender sponge - after primer and before setting powder for all day flawless natural coverage!

I got this applied at the sephora store and most of the staff recommend fingers! More control and much easier to blend.
I have tried many brushes and the best thing for this foundation is the BEAUTY BLENDER!

I use a stippling brush, it works GREAT!
And I'm going to have to respectfully disagree....I use a loose powder to set the foundation and I've NEVER had a problem with it causing the foundation to flake off. Press powder, in my opinion, can leave behind a cakey look.

I apply the foundation with SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Flawless Airbrush #56 and then apply a light dusting of the pressed powder(Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup) and I get a flawless finish. In the past I used loose powder which was a mistake, it actually breaks up the makeup and flakes off. pressed is the way to go.

I would recommend applying this product with your finger tips for a natural coverage that isn't too heavy.
