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 wanted to love this product , and it may work better for other people but it was very cakey for me. It didnt blend as nicely as i wanted it to. I gave it 3 stars though because i think in all of my make-up trials and errors, I am finding that liquid foundation really works best for me. If this thicker type of foundation works for you then maybe this product will be okay for you. Its just not for me.

              I do not live close to the Ulta store I shop. Twice I've been there for products and have had to settle for a different shade due to out of stock. A little disappointing. I do like the product.

                      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.
