The Beauty Blender

| Tashan Cian

The Queen of makeup tools. The beauty blender is a revolutionary makeup sponge. Yes sponge.  The founders of the beauty blender describe it as

Beautyblender is the most versatile make up tool you’ll ever own. It ‘s elliptical teardrop shape is super soft to the touch, like suede and allows you to access hard-to-reach places making your make up application foolproof. It’s washable, re-useable and recyclable. It’s latex free and anti-microbial. Can be used with all types of make up; liquid base, cream base, mineral make up, cream blush, powders etc.”

This tool makes full coverage heavy foundation look undetectable and flawless. I have recently fallen in love with makeup sponges, if you use the angles and edges and flat sides of  a sponge or beauty blender you can sculpt and contour the face with ease as well as buffing the skin until flawless.

The sponge is best used damp, so dipped or sprayed with water or mac Fix  + and the excess water squeezed away and then used in a rolling action over the skin to flaw and buff foundation.

The beauty blender is used by top Hollywood makeup artists such as Mario Dedivanovic and Scott Barnes.

Top Tip: use in a stippling motion when applying foundation to create an airbrush finish.
