How To Use A Beauty Blender
Follow these tips and tricks to use your Beauty Blender the right way.
Wet Your Beauty Blender Before Every UseA Beauty Blender is supposed to be used wet. If you skipped the instructions and have been using it dry all along, you’re doing it wrong. A damp sponge will not only give you a dewy, streak-free finish but will also prevent wastage of that expensive foundation. When you wet a Beauty Blender, the water causes it to swell and increase in size. This ensures that your makeup isn’t soaked up by the porous sponge, allowing seamless application.
Professional makeup artists often keep a cup of water around to moisten their sponges while working. Doing so makes makeup blend into your skin effortlessly.
he Beauty Blender is shaped like an egg for a reason. You can use the rounded edges to apply makeup to larger areas of your face, like your cheeks and forehead. Use the pointed edge for hard-to-reach areas that need precision, like the sides of your nose, your under eyes, and along the lips. Blend it all out and put its egg shape to good use!
