I love putting on makeup, but I hate that caky feeling on my fingers. So when I switched to the triangle sponges, I thought that would solve my beauty dilemma. But when I started using them, I noticed my makeup never looked even.
Thankfully, another amazing break through in beauty came through. Meet the Beautyblender ($35 for sponge and cleanser). It’s the newest makeup applicator on the market that’s perfect for anyone who a) hates applying foundations/primers with their fingertips; b) has streaks and uneven complexion even after applying; and c) can’t stand those little triangle sponges (ahem).
The elliptical shape makes it easy for makeup junkies to apply makeup evenly and helps blend makeup to cover any blemishes and it’s easy to wash after every use.,
Tips for using the Beautyblender:
Bounce the sponge off your face when applying makeup. Use the pointed side for hard-to-reach spots and to cover tiny blemishes. Use it when damp when you’re applying wet/dry makeup (it grows two sizes when it’s wet).
Stop using your fingers to blend your liquid makeup! I’ve used sponges (those little wedges) before and wasn’t impressed. These are the perfect shape and the texture is so fine that they don’t absorb your precious makeup. The best part–you won’t look ‘made up’, you will look naturally gorgeous–no lines, no demarcation. This is the air-brushed look without the expense. Don’t spring for the cleanser-just rinse and squeeze through any mild soap. One more tip: Slightly dampen before use; your makeup will glide on like silk. No one needs to be putting any traction on their skin. I am an RN and a licensed esthetician–skin is my business.
