The one problem that I had when I wore liquid foundation was that it seemed like I could never blend it enough. I don't like to get foundation all over my fingers, and my foundation brush always made my foundation streaky (although I now know that a flat top kabuki brush would have solved that problem). Nur introduced me to the BeautyBlender, and I ordered one immediately. It has completely changed the way I feel about liquid foundation. I love that I can get full coverage, yet my foundation looks well blended into my skin.
I usually squeeze the excess water out over the sink, and then I squeeze it in a towel to make sure I have gotten as much water out as possible. Then it's ready to apply my foundation. I typically put dots of foundation around my face and then use the BeautyBlender to stipple it in. Basically, I bounce the BeautyBlender around my face until the foundation blends into my skin. You can use the top point to get around your eyes and nose, but I rarely do that. I like that I can use it to build up the coverage or for a light application.

You can buy a set of 2 BeautyBlenders at Sephora for $25.95 or at Amazon.com for $19.56. The Sonia Kashuk "dupe" is around $10 at Target, but I haven't used it myself.
I feel like this has made a huge difference for me, so I will continue to replace it unless I find a cheaper alternative that works just as well.
