For dry skin and oily skin alike, there is no better tool for applying foundation and concealer than the Beauty Blender. What is the Beauty Blender? Well, it’s basically a fancy sponge that you can use over and over again to create a second skin foundation look. If you use this product, never again will you have any foundation lines or patchy skin over dry areas.
How to Use a Beauty Blender?
The key to using this beauty sponge is to saturate it with water. Hold it under the faucet for a few seconds, squeeze the sponge a few times until it swells with water. Turn off the faucet and squeeze the sponge again to get rid of the excess water.
Now, pour some foundation or concealer onto the back of your hand and dab your beauty blender into the foundation. Then take the sponge and bounce it onto your skin lightly, going back and forth from your face to your hand to get more product and distribute it, until you’ve covered all of the areas you want to cover with makeup.
That’s it! It’s a really easy and quick way to apply foundation, yet it gives the most flawless finish.
How do you clean a Beauty Blender?
Cleaning this makeup sponge is easy, though you will need a special product to do so. It’s possible to use baby shampoo or another gentle cleanser to clean it but the best way to clean a Beauty Blender is to use the official cleaning product. It comes in a solid form or liquid, both available on Amazon.
All you need to do is add the soap onto the Beauty Blender and massage the sponge under the water until the water runs clean. It’s best to clean the sponge after each use, but I’d recommend doing so at least once a week to keep bacteria from growing. Keep the sponge out in the open to dry for the same reason, it needs to breath a bit or it won’t dry properly and could grow bacteria.
How much does a Beauty Blender cost?
Beauty Blenders cost between $15-$20, with the cleaning products costing about the same. However, I’ve had the same Beauty Blender for three years and haven’t needed to replace it yet so considering how many times I’ve used it – it’s a bargain. What is your favorite product to use to apply foundation? Have you ever tried using makeup sponges.
