There are many tools that can be used to apply liquid makeup such as traditional sponges (wedges), foundation brushes, and even your fingers. While they may all get the job done (depending on how much time an effort is given), flawless finish and consistent coverage is often lacking.
Enter the BeautyBlender sponge! Created by celebrity makeup artists the BeautyBlender sponge was developed to give attention to the idea that flawless makeup application is achieved with “the perfect fade”.
This high quality, uniquely shaped sponge allows you to blend makeup without any brush strokes, lines or finger marks. You get a flawless, airbrushed finish every time. It’s egg-like shape allows for accurate application in tricky areas like the nose, mouth and eyes and its porous, suede-like texture makes blending incredibly easy and creates a gorgeous natural finish.
The BeautyBlender sponge can be easily washed to avoid bacteria build up and it can be used again and again. Also, it is latex-free, non-allergenic and odor-free, making it perfect for sensitive skin.
How to use the BeautyBlender sponge:
- Run the BeautyBlender sponge under water and squeeze out any excess water so that the brush is damp (it will appear larger in size as it has absorbed water and will not absorb your product during application).
- Add some product (foundation, tinted moisturizer, BB cream, or CC cream) to the back of your hand and dip the sponge in the product. You can even use pressed powder, dry mineral makeup, concealer and cream blush!
- Bounce the BeautyBlender sponge against your face when applying your product. “Bouncing”, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. Also, the moisture of the water absorbed in the beautyblender sponge combined with your makeup will give your skin a beautiful glow.
- Wash after each use with BlenderCleanser or your facial cleanser and place in the BeautyBlender insert pedestal to dry (the clear round container that the sponge came in… do not throw this away!). Be sure that your BeautyBlender sponge never comes in contact with extreme heat of any kind.
Tip: You can use the BeautyBlender sponge to apply tinted and non-tinted SPF products made specifically for the face!
