I’ve been hinting on Instagram and Snapchat (BrunetteSnapz) of a little makeup trick I’ve been playing around with and I’m finally ready to share. The secret lies in the all-oily goodness of facial oil.

Prior to this tip, I was using a makeup sponge and foundation that created a great look for the AM only. By the afternoon I could see the makeup flaking in between my brows and looking patchy. The horror.

Back to the drawing board I went to figure out how I could get a seamless, lasting look. My first mistake was using a DRY makeup sponge. Did you know that a dry makeup sponge will actually pull away the makeup from your face? The sponge should be damp for a smooth and lasting application. If you’re like me and had literally no idea, now you do.

I was still in need of a little moisture, so instead of using facial oil as my primer, I placed a few drops on my sponge prior to blending my foundation. YOU.GUYS. This made a HUGE difference and I’m sincerely not being dramatic. No more flakes, a complexion with more glow and a seamless finish. Plus, COMPLIMENTS. It made that much of a difference that people noticed.

If you’ve ever seen Instagram beauty gurus dropping a concoction on their sponges, its OIL and it seriously WORKS. I was so hesitant, but after consistent results and healthy skin, I was sold. So sold, I’m mixing a few drops of oil in my hands with BB cream if I’m not feeling foundation.
