How to use a beauty blender

By The Beauty Section

So many people including myself are intrigued by the Beauty Blender. Is it because it looks like a hot pink egg but it’s for your face? It’s just a sponge right? Wrong, it’s the most amazing sponge you’ve ever seen! Believe me I was skeptical before trying it too, but now I don’t ever apply foundation without it.

Why it’s so incredible:

1 // It makes foundation look flawless, almost as if you aren’t wearing anything. “Seeing make up is the first sign of an amateur application.” –Beautblender.net

2 // It makes hard to reach areas such as under the eyes, around the nose, and corners of the mouth easy to get to with the small pointy end of the sponge.

3 // You can use it for any type of face makeup like foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, and powder.

How To: Use a Beauty Blender:

How to Use this big bright pink egg known as the beauty blender. It makes makeup go on absolutely flawlessly.

 

1 // Start by wetting your Beauty Blender (BB) in your sink and at this point your BB will be two times it’s original size. If you don’t wet it won’t work the same

2 // Squeeze all the excess water out of your BB so it is left damp, not soaking wet. You can also use a towel to squeeze out the water.

3 // I prefer applying foundation directly to the large end of the BB, but you can also dot the foundation around your face and start that way.

4 // Start applying the foundation by using a “bouncing” technique, almost as if you are bouncing a ball off your face. Do this over your entire face until completely covered. This makes for a natural effect with no lines or streaks that you sometimes see with other applicators.

5 // Use the small pointed end to apply under eye concealer as well as blemish concealer. Use the same bouncing technique for these areas as well. Don’t drag the BB along your face.

6 // You can also apply blush, bronzer, and powder using the BB and the same technique.

7 // After you finished using your BB for the day rinse it under the sink again and set it out to dry until your next application. It will shrink back down to it’s original size. 

 There are many dupes for the BB but none are quiet the same, check out my review of The Real Techniques Sponge. You can purchase the BB online here (cheaper). or at your local Sephora.
