I find exfoliating regularly (two times a week or so) helps a lot with getting an even application of product and minimizes product getting caught on flaky skin. A cleaner brush or sponge is better at distributing color–I’ve definitely noticed if I re-use a brush, the application is often a little less-good over time. If I’m working with a more matte formula, I also like to spritz my brush lightly with water or an adhesive spray, which helps it distribute more readily without disturbing the formula.
