We always thought we were being terribly quick-and-dirty when we're in a hurry and put on makeup with our hands, but apparently that's a professionally approved way of going about things. But there's a wrong way and a right way to do everything, even putting on makeup with your fingers, and Girlactik Beauty creator Galit Strugano explains the how and why of it.
