Quite literally, it’s a lightweight SPF foundation soaked into a sponge cushion, within a compact. The cushion keeps the formula moist so that you get the dewy benefits of using a liquid foundation, combined with the convenience of a portable compact format. The cushion also releases an appropriate dose of foundation onto the sponge, allowing for even coverage. Most cushion compacts are multi-taskers with high SPFs and a host of skincare ingredients.
How to use a Cushion Compact?
We can summarize this in 3 words, hydrate, build and pat.
The beauty of the Cushion Compact is that a fine layer of foundation is picked up, similar to the technique of a make up artist and the utilizing the puff applicator will help evenly ‘stamp’ this formula all over the face. In short, a fail-proof way to apply makeup that looks natural, non-cakey and flawless.
In order to have the right canvas for the Cushion Compact to go on evenly, skin should be very hydrated. And as any good makeup artist would , we recommend that you gradually build coverage which is exactly what the compact and applicator is designed to do. And finally ? take your time to fully pat everything in. This is similar to the buffing part of applying foundation but the patting motion ensures that your look stays dewy and non-matte.(Quote from Glowrecipe Blog)
