If you wear makeup, then you know how important blending is. We’ve all been out for a full 8 hours, only to come home, look in the mirror and see that dreaded foundation line glaring back at us. It’s as bad as when your fly has been down for an unknown amount of time and you can’t help but wonder, “How long has that been like that?” It’s a mortifying feeling, but with the tips below you’ll never have to feel it again.
Why Choose A Beauty Blender?
There are so many foundation application tools on the market, but in my personal opinion the makeup sponge, whatever brand you decide to go with, is the superior choice. Brushes can leave streaks and it’s hard to get optimal coverage just using your fingers. With a Beauty Blender, you’re guaranteed to get even coverage with no lines or streaks. For best results, a classic Beauty Blender from the Beauty Blender brand is a safe choice, however I’ve purchased plenty of knock offs at drugstores that worked just fine. Just make sure the one you purchase is in that classic teardrop shape so you can use the chubby end to apply the foundation all over your face and the sharp end for detail work.
Makeup Sponges Work On More Than Just Liquid
You may also think you can only use a makeup blending sponge with liquid foundations, but you can also use them to pat in powders! Simply wet your brush, wring it out and you’re good to apply loose powders, your daily moisturizer, concealer, bronzer, lip stains, highlighter and just about anything else in your daily routine!
When using a sponge to apply Liquid Foundation, it’s going to give you a dewy finish. If you prefer a matte finish, apply a powder over top to lock in the foundation makeup.
When using a sponge to apply your moisturizer, soak up the sponge with warm water. The warmth will open up your pores and allow the product to be better absorbed by your skin. Alternatively when applying concealer, soak the sponge in very cold water. Using an ice cold sponge will reduce under eye bags and feel similar to applying cold cucumbers to your eyes!
