Take a little of the foundation on the lid of the container, grab some foundation, place the foundation in the areas you need the most coverage. Then go back with the brush and buff the foundation in. Repeat the process till you are happy with the coverage on your face. This will give you a light coverage. For medium coverage, apply wet application.
