Do you wear a mask?

I was looking at a long time friends face who I haven't seen in a few years in person. Her makeup looks like she's wearing a mask. It's the wrong color for her and it's caked on so thick. At the neck you can tell it's not her natura skin because it really looks like a mask. I didn't dare. Say anything, but am wondering how she doesn't notice. 

When I apply makeup/foundation I use a super blender sponge. The Target version of the BeautyBlender. When I'm done applying I always flip to the bottom and drag from chin to under chin and then across right under chin to make sure I blend. 

How do you all apply foundation?

I do similar only I use one of those triangle makeup sponges. I always make sure to blend around my chin and hairline with a clean area of the sponge or a new sponge.

I wear a tinted moisturizer just for that reason. I see so many women with "masks" on that I am paranoid when I use any kind of foundation. I don't really need a heavy coverage anyways so I just play it safe.
