Francy Answers: How to apply stick foundation

Beautysets - How to apply stick foundation

Dear Francy,

Not sure if you have any experience with this but I recently heard about stick foundation and I'm interested in trying it but I have no clue how to wear it. Have you worn it before and if so how? Thanks for your help!


Stick foundation may not be as common as liquid and powder, but it has actually been around for quite some time. Stick foundation is basically cream foundation in a stick applicator. Like other cream foundation formulas, stick foundation can provide medium to full coverage, depending on application amount.

Stick foundations give concentrated strokes of foundation when applied, so it's best to use a sponge applicator over other brushes to evenly distribute the foundation all over your face.

Recently I tried the Maybelline Oil Free Foundation stick (look out for a review on this foundation) and created a tutorial on how I applied it. Below are step by step instructions on how I apply my stick foundation and the products that I used.

Mac Fix Plus Spray    Maybelline Foundation stick     BeautyBlender Sponge


STEP 1: Apply strokes of foundation all over your face, making sure not to miss any possible problem areas. Since cream foundations tend to be more concentrated than others, make sure not to over apply.

STEP 2: Moisten your beautyblender sponge with Mac fix plus and then carefully blend the foundation into your face and neck

STEP 3: Once your foundation is completely blended into your skin, set your foundation with the powder of your choice.


Once you get the hang of applying stick foundation, it can provide you with a flawless, fresh looking face. In addition to Maybelline, several other brands also create stick foundations. Below are a few others to check out.
