This has to be the best make up tool out there! I know beauty bloggers have been raving about it for a while but I had to put it out there just in case you still don’t know how amazing this product is.
I have recommended this product to quite a few people who are not that even into make up and they say its seriously changed their lives! OK that may be a bit of an overstatement (I got a bit dramatic!) but it definitely has changed the way they apply makeup and it is seriously worth every penny.
So before I ramble any more the product I am talking about is the Beauty Blender. As you can see in the picture below its essentially a make up sponge with one end in a domed shape and the other in a rounded point shape. This makeup sponge works with any foundation, concealer or even powder and it just blends any product to an absolutely seamless finish, making your skin look flawless but not cakey. It blurs out any imperfections and makes any product mesh with your skin so it looks really natural and like real skin.
The best way to use this sponge is damp, make sure you run it under the tap for a a good 30 seconds and then squeeze out all the water. This will make the sponge almost double in size as it locks in a lot of moisture inside. This really helps the products on your skin to blend. The best way to apply foundation using this is to bounce it of your skin rather than drag and the little point on the bottom side helps you get into every litte corner on your face such as the corner of your eyes or the areas around your nose.
In order to avoid using too much product on your skin, I find its best to dot some foundation or concealer on your face and then blend it out with the Beauty Blender or otherwise you can directly spread the products on your skin using fingers and then just use the beauty blender to help it mesh with your skin and remove any excess (I show you how to do this in my online tutorials click these links to access them (GLAMOROUS WINTER LOOK – SOFT SMOKEY EYE AND BRIGHT LIP)
Although a little pricey (approx £12-15 (UK) $17-20 (US)) if you wash this sponge on a weekly basis (if you use it everyday) it should last you for almost up to a year, so it is definitely worth every penny.
