If you applied too much foundation, there's no need to panic. Simply grab a tissue and dab it on your face, focusing on the areas where there is too much foundation. The tissue should immediately absorb the excess product. Be careful not to rub or scratch your face. Light dabbing should work.

Next, use a damp beautyblender to blend the areas where you've removed the excess foundation. You want to make sure your foundation looks seamless.
