I became obsessed with the Beauty Blender about a year ago. Up until that point, I pretty much used my fingertips to apply foundation, but this quickly became my go-to for a flawless finish. The shape of the sponge ensures there are no harsh streaks or lines, and the pointed end allows you to get into hard to reach places around your nose and eyes. By stippling–a bouncing motion that presses the product into your skin as opposed to swiping–your foundation blends to perfection and stays all day.
Knowing how to use your Beauty Blender will ensure you don’t waste any product and you get the completely even, airbrushed look we all strive for. After priming (my favorite is Smashbox Photo Finish Light) I get to work:
While it may seem a bit pricey compared to other sponges, it is definitely worth the investment. For a better value, I recommend the two-pack. You can put your spare in your travel bag or give it to a friend–you won’t be sorry!
