Put a little liquid foundation onto the back of your hand and with your fingertip, dab the foundation over your face: two dabs on your forehead, two on the cheeks, one on your nose, and one on your chin. Covering the face this way helps ensure a more even and spreadable coverage. Blend the foundation into the skin with your fingers or using a foundation brush.

    Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

    I was very surprised about how thick this is. I thought that I had bought an old tube, but that is just the consistency. You need to make sure that your skin is very moisturized, otherwise it looks dry and will fill in your pores. I have fair skin with red undertones. I was hoping that because this is primer/foundation combo, that it would cover better. Especially since it says it is medium - full coverage. I would definitely put this closer to medium because I still need to put powder over it. I'm going to finish using it, because the price is low enough that it was not worth the hassle of returning it, however I will not be purchasing this product again, nor would I recommend it.

            Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

            This foundation is extremely thick, almost like putty. I bought this, liking the idea of a primer and foundation in one, but it actually emphasizes dry patches and pores instead of smoothing the skin. I feel like it's so thick and clay-like, it actually dries out my skin as I put it on (that might be a pro if you have very oily skin, though). The only way I can wear it is by mixing in a ton of beauty oil, but then it looks a little patchy. It's difficult to blend too. I wouldn't recommend this except to someone with very oily skin.

                  I currently am using creamy natural, but my skin is getting darker with spending more time in the sun. I have blonde hair, green eyes & I THINK pink, not yellow undertones. Would you suggest the next shade up for medium in warm or cool undertones? Thank you!

                    This foundation is formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a very hydrating ingredient, as well as with sweet almond extract to sooth and nourish sensitive skin. For those with dry skin, we recommend moisturizing and exfoliating (2X weekly for sensitive skin) to ensure smooth application.

                  What's the difference between a BB cream and a foundation?

                    A:

                    The most noticeable difference is that this foundation provides medium to full coverage, while most BB creams typically provide sheer-to-medium coverage. This product combines the benefits of primer and foundation, while many BB creams combine the benefits of a tinted moisturizer and primer. Many use BB cream underneath this product for hydration plus a bit of added coverage. We hope this helps!
