Want to know how runway models really get flawless-looking skin ? It's all about the tapping!
The new tapping makeup application method was all the rage backstage at New York Fashion Week SS16.
Although this technique is applied by professionals, it's simple enough to do at home. Makeup artists simply use the tips of their fingertips to "tap" on foundation, instead of rubbing it on with a makeup brush.
What’s so great about this new trick? Well, tapping allows for foundation to be deposited on top of the skin without being absorbed, resulting in a flawless airbrushed finish.
For an easy way to achieve this professional look at home try the Color Me Automatic Foundation Applicator (Macy's, $54). This little device can apply any foundation or bb cream in a fuss-free way at the rate of 15,000 taps per minute.
Plus, a pro-version of the devices launches on October 21 (Net-A-Porter, $68). So, forget your old foundation application methods, and start "tapping" your way to skin perfection.
