A mega-hit, that has now gained popularity in Europe, is a very useful tool if you are looking for a fast, clean, easy and effective way of applying foundation or other creamy cosmetics. We’re talking about a tiny egg-shaped sponge – beauty blender.
But how to use it?
Squeeze your beauty blender a couple of times and make sure it doubles its size. Eventually, squeeze out the excess water, as you want the sponge to be barely damp.
Ways of using beauty blenders:
1)Apply your foundation to the back of your hand and dip the beauty blender into it. Then begin to apply your foundation by stippling or bouncing the beauty blender all over your face.
2) Put some drops of your BB-cream onto your face – chin, cheeks, nose, forehead, then gently divide them around the whole face with your beauty blender.
Beauty blenders were invented by Hollywood visagistes Rae Ann Silva and Veronica Lawrence some years ago, to make the process of applying the foundation faster and easier. They developed the tear-drop shape for it too.
So why is it good to use these ultimate make-up sponges?
When you make it a little damp, it can add mo isture to your skin. Most women apply face powder, which is thick enough to make their skin dry. But if you apply it using the damp sponge, it keeps your skin hydrated all day.
Another plus – no smears around your face, like a mask effect, as beauty blenders mold the foundation to your skin. Best of all it works with thick BB-creams. Moreover, it’s perfect for applying the rouge, highlighter or doing makeup correction without any spoiling – a real must have.
As it’s egg-shaped, you can easily get to every corner of your face. Also, it has the wide bulbous bottom, that is designed for a larger area.
Beauty blenders are made of various high-quality materials: from synthetic latex to polyurethane. After getting wet the sponge will not absorb your foundation into itself, so no worries about wasting your cosmetics.
Beauty blenders can be good for boys too – they perfectly help in hiding scars or tattoos if necessary.
To keep your magic sponge clean just use some water and soap or soft shampoo and always make it dry well after it – leave it in a dark dry place. Some beauty blenders are sold in a small plastic bag and with a special gel for cleaning them – blendercleanser. It’s also good for cleaning brushes. The get has a strong lavender aroma and contains soy bean extract.
With the time it’s color can fade, and it’s texture – change, so don’t forget that you shouldn’t use one beauty blender for more than 3 months.
No more fingers, brushes or other long and imperfect ways of applying your foundation – give your beauty blender a chance to make magic on your beautiful face.
