ABOUT THE BEAUTY BLENDER

Beauty Blender is a latex-free sponge that comes in many colors. Its size is like small egg and when you dampen it, it becomes bigger. The idea of getting sponge wet is because we want makeup to sit atop the sponge instead of getting absorbed inside. Water fills the cavity of a sponge and liquid foundation or highlighter doesn't have a space to come inside. Thanks to this technique, you won't waste much makeup and your skin will be looking airbrushed. 

SHAPE

It doesn't associate us on egg only by its size, but with the shape too. They wanted to make a sponge that's „edgeless“  so it would fit the contours of the face –like eyes and nose. The top of it is sharp and its meant to reach everywhere – under eyes and around the nose. 

 

HOW I USE IT

I first dampen it, put the foundation (liquid or in the stick) on my face and then blend it with Beauty Blender. You don't have to use only foundation with it, it can be used for highlighters, bronzer and even for powder formulas too. So after foundation I put concealer under eyes, on the bridge of the nose and on the chin and blend it all with the top of a sponge (the „sharp“ side) and it works great. I was curios to see how it works with powder formula, so I „baked“ my face with translucent powder. I dipped sponge in the powder and dabbed it underneath my eyes and everywhere else where I get oily, and that's my T-zone area. It sat on face a few minutes and then I removed excess powder with a brush. My face looked flawless, smooth and fresh. Everything blended together perfectly. 

 

FINAL WORDS

Beauty Blender changed my makeup routine. Everything was blending nicely, I didin't have any problems with streakiness as with a brush. My face looks less cakey and more glowy and natural. It must be replaced every 3 months, and washed every time after usage. Make sure you'll leave it on some place where it can dry, if you leave it wet the bacterias will multiply and it can cause breakouts on your skin. Also, you can put it in the washing mashine to make sure it's totally clean. 

It's great for touch-ups, too. Because of its size, it fits every purse so you can bring it with you. When you want to touch-up your skin just dabb over it with your Beauty blender, without adding any extra powdery product, you'll look flawless just like when you applied your makeup.
