- For a while, I was stuck with the Makeup Forever HD foundation. I've used it for years until they recently changed their formula. A Sephora rep told me that it's now best applied with fingers instead of brushes. I still use it from time to tim, but I find myself reaching for the Lancome one more often. For the Tent Idole (by Lancome) I use a Sephora Pro domed stippling brush (Number 41), and it works perfectly. Other days, I dab some of my face with my fingers, then blend with a wet beauty blender.
