Skin Veil, and I tried to apply it with my fingers. My skin was so dry it sucked half of it up, and, not surprising, what was left was a blotchy mess. I made a phone call to my beauty experts and they asked me if I was using moisturizer everyday and if I had tried my Beautyblender yet. I said no, applied some moisturizer and tried the Beautyblender. (All while I was on the phone I might add!) It ended up working great! I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use, especially around the nose. My moisturized skin also didn't suck up the makeup in the same way, allowing me to apply it more evenly.
My tips for easy liquid foundation application are:
1.) Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize
2.) Make sure you're using the right color (duh)
3.) Use an application method that works for you (for me it's the Beautyblender)
