The Stippling Method

Anonymous wanted to know what stippling (a method I often refer to) is.

Stippling  is dotting a product in a tapping motion over an area (as opposed to buffing {essentially rubbing in circular motions} or patting {which is like stippling, but with a flat-sided brush and a slight bit of drag}) with a flat top brush.  All “motion” should be perpendicular to the surface.  Stippling creates a pixeled effect: the fine tips of the brush hairs create minuscule dots of product on the skin, and by stippling over an area, you can cover textured surfaces (scars, burns, etc.) evenly and mimic the skin’s natural appearance, as well as eliminating the chance of brush marks.  Stippling also allows product to be applied over another product without disturbing it.  If this was unclear, stippling is dotting it over the area many multiples of times-not just once or twice-until the product seems to meld into your skin.
