If you buy one makeup applicator this year, buy the Makeup Blender "Brush" by ELIZABETH ARDEN. Its pointy foam tip allows for flawless blending of foundation, concealer, and cream blushes/highlighters, especially in those small crevices around the eye.
$15 - Department Stores Natiomwide
TIP: Wet the sponge tip before use for the smoothest application possible! Clean with soap and warm water.
