A Beauty Blender makeup sponge is a unique, multi-purpose tool that you can have in your makeup kit. Along with blending foundation, a Beauty Blender is useful for a range of creative makeup tricks! Here are three creative ways that you can use a Beauty Blender sponge.
Use it to bake your concealer
I love this trick when setting concealer underneath my eyes! This trick works well with a slightly damp Beauty Blender. It may seem strange to apply the powder with a wet sponge, but water won’t transfer to your skin. Dampen the tip of your sponge, load it with powder, then dab it underneath your eyes to set your concealer.
Use it to blend your foundation and moisturizer
Sometimes, an oil-based foundation won’t blend with a water-based moisturizer, or vice versa. If you use a Beauty Blender to apply your foundation, it will be easier to press the product into your skin after applying moisturizer. This technique blends the products together and reduces the look of a caked complexion.
Use it to apply nail polish for an ombre manicure
Giving yourself an ombre manicure is one of the most creative ways to use your Beauty Blender sponge. Apply your desired colours to the flat end of the sponge and press it into your fingernails for an ombre, colourful nail design.
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.
