This little pink egg shaped sponge has taken the beauty world by storm because it promises to do a LOT of things really well. How can one little sponge do so much, though? Lucky for you I’m here to explain a few tips and tricks to help you utilize your Beauty Blender to its fullest potential.
The first thing you want to do is get your Beauty Blender wet. I mean, saturate the heck out of it and watch as it doubles in size. It’s pretty awesome! Then squeeze all the water out of it leaving the sponge just slightly damp. Doing this helps the sponge to not absorb as much product while providing a damp application which then helps liquid foundation to melt seamlessly into your skin.
You can literally use the Beauty Blender for a ton of different applications to include:
To apply most liquid/cream products you’ll want to dispense a small amount of product to the back of your hand or dot it all over your face. Then take your damp Beauty Blender and “bounce” the bottom over your skin blending all the dots together. The more your bounce and blend the thinner your application will be so you can definitely customize your coverage depending on how much blending you do. To blend concealer take the tip of the sponge and dot it where needed. The thinner tip of the Beauty Blender is absolutely perfect for getting hard to reach places like the inner corners of the eye and the sides of your nose.
To blend any cream products the same principle applies: Simply bounce the damp Beauty Blender on areas where you need a bit more blending and watch as magic happens in front of your eyes. It almost sounds too good to be true!
Did you know that you can also use a Beauty Blender with powder products? Yep! I personally love using the pointed tip with Graftobian Banana Cream Pie Powder to highlight my under eye area. Just take your sponge, dip it in the powder, and gently pat it in your desired area. If the powder comes off too thick no worries, just take a powder brush and dust away the excess.
Once you get your hands on the Beauty Blender and play around with it you’ll definitely figure out what works best with the products you like to use. It really is a miracle sponge!
You can buy the Beauty Blender here where it retails for $20.
Have you tried using a Beauty Blender before? How do you prefer to apply cream/liquid products?
