A BeautyBlender makeup sponge is an applicator for foundation, highlight, and contouring. These sponges double in size once wet to absorb product as you apply it to the face.
Know which BeautyBlender to use
Five types of BeautyBlender products exist. The Original pink BeautyBlender is perfect for applying foundation. The Black BeautyBlender sponge works best when applying bronzer or self-tanner. Green Micro Mini BeautyBlender’s help blend foundation. The white Pure sponge absorbs moisturizer for easier application. The Blotterazi is a set of two mini pink sponges that blot away oil.
Keep the sponge wet
Rinse the BeautyBlender sponge with lukewarm water. Squeeze any excess water before applying makeup. A damp makeup sponge helps makeup adhere to the skin better than a dry sponge.
How to apply makeup with a BeautyBlender
Start by dampening the sponge with water. Pour the product you wish to apply onto the back of your hand. Dab the sponge into the product and apply it using a tapping motion. Use the pointed end of the sponge to blend it into the skin.
How to clean the sponge
Ideally, you should clean your BeautyBlender sponge after each use. Squirt a small amount of face wash or soap onto the sponge, rinse it under running water, and squeeze it until the water runs clear. You can also deep-clean the sponge by using bar soap.
