Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation Stick Is Even Better Than the Original

My favorite part about this foundation is that because its coverage level is so adjustable, I don’t really need to wear concealer with it — rather, I can just apply an extra layer on the areas I want fully covered. Then, I set it with a dusting of powder and a healthy spritz of setting spray to melt it all together. 

But that’s just how I, personally, like to apply it — you can do it that way, your own special way, or you can take a page from a professional’s book. Bi-coastal makeup artist Lavonne explains to Allure that when she’s working on clients, she uses a spatula to break off the foundation she needs and uses a sponge to apply it to the face. “Sometimes I like to mix a bit of moisturizer to get a dewy finish because the texture of cream foundations give you more pliability,” she says.

The approach she takes on her own face is a little more simple, though. “For personal use, it’s going to look like paint by numbers on the face,” she explains. “Using two to three shades to highlight and contour, I will apply directly from the tube and use my fingers to warm it up, then buff out with a brush or sponge.”

And thanks to this foundation’s diverse 39-shade range offering, ultimately anyone can find their best match. So take it from someone who knows: even you aren’t a stick foundation fan, it’s worth giving this one a shot.
