How to apply face masks

Sheet masks are quite straightforward to apply since they follow the shape of the human face. All you need to do is to check which side is the correct one, smooth it on your skin to remove any air bubbles and you’re good to go.

Clay or cream masks, though, can be a bit more tricky and although you can apply them directly with your fingers, doing it with a clean foundation brush is not a bad idea either.
