While we adore cushion foundations for their convenience and easy application, the results can be unpredictable, particularly around the creases of the nose.

Relatable? The cushion puff is a tricky little tool that we need and love so we’ve found a makeup hack that you can try for a truly flawless finish.

Originally introduced by TikToker 시네 si-ne (@xunue123) and tried and tested by TikToker Janessa Theo (@janessatheo), this tutorial includes a cushion foundation, cushion puff, and moving your nose around (yes, it looks like nose-digging).

Despite the initial surprise this suggestion may bring, trust us when we say it is effective and not as comical as it may appear!

Applying With a Cushion Foundation: Stamp and Pat

To begin, get a small amount of product onto your cushion puff and start at your cheeks. You’re going to want to stamp once before patting the foundation in, all around the cheeks area.

While 시네 si-ne tends to do this with a lot of force (that it looks like she’s literally slapping the product on), you can opt for a gentler approach with the cushion puff on your face.

Swipe Along the Jawline

When you’re done with your cheek, move on to the jawline. Remember not to overapply product from the cushion as the puff will likely already have sufficient product!

Start from your sideburns or the base of your ears and glide inwards and downwards, following your jawline.

If the skin at your jawline is not in the best condition, use a tapping technique instead to apply the foundation, as suggested by 시네 si-ne.

Patting the Product in

After you’re done with both sides of your cheeks and jawline, continue with the same tapping motion on your chin area.

For the forehead, apply a slightly larger amount of foundation (around a quarter of the puff or less). Then, employ the same technique used on your cheeks: stamp and pat.

Applying on the Nose Crease: Sweep, Pat, Press, and Pat

Now, on to the tough part! Place your cushion puff just below your nose bridge and sweep down towards the corner of your lips. Then, pat the surrounding area.

Next, press the cushion puff once on your nose crease and pat the surrounding area. Do this twice before you move on to the other side of your nose!

The Nose Crease Test

How to tell if you’ve done it right? Here’s where 시네 si-ne’s comical trick comes in.

Stick a finger into your nostril, kind of like how one would dig their nose, and move your nostril around quickly.

It can be clockwise, anti-clockwise, or in any direction — the goal is to see whether the foundation would budge.

The verdict? 시네 si-ne’s unique application method for the nose area works! It might look “unglam” for a few moments but this test is definitely worth a try.

@시네 si-ne 🐽 ⬅ the original tutorial. 꿀팁👌🏻 I know lots of people struggle with cushion puff too #makeuphacks #makeuptutorial #cushion #cushionfoundation #beautytok

Janessa Theo, who was impressed with this test, gave a thumbs up, said she “won’t even need concealer at this point”, and that “the tutorial works beautifully”.

She also noted how you can achieve a natural shadow that sculpts the face since the foundation is mainly applied in the centre of the face!

Seeing as how 시네 si-ne consistently dishes out makeup looks with a flawless base on her TikTok videos, we’re definitely entrusting our noses and cushion foundation results to her ingenious tutorial.
