Podcast: A quick lesson in foundation application

Plus: Kevin Murphy’s hair styling dos and don’ts & why you need a cleansing oil

BEAUTYcrew Editor / February 16 2020

Is it better to use your fingers, a sponge or a brush to apply foundation? Trick question – there’s no right answer. But your application method can make a difference to the end result, and in this episode of Get Lippy we help you navigate why you’d choose one method over the other. 

Also in this ep: We brought in hair guru and brand founder Kevin Murphy to share his styling dos and don’ts (plus, he divulged the best trick he ever learnt was from Barbra Streisand, go figure). And we talk about the cleansing category getting all of the attention right now – oil cleansers.
