What is a beauty sponge? The Beautyblender is a versatile makeup sponge that can be used for practically anything in your makeup bag: foundations, bb cream, concealer, you name it. But in order to really get the most out of your makeup sponge, follow our 3-step process: wet, squeeze, and bounce.
What makes Beautyblender different? Unlike makeup brushes, beauty blenders do not give a streaky or cakey look. A wet sponge can absorb a lot of liquid product, which can be deposited evenly on the face for a sheer dewy look. Even a dry sponge can absorb enough amount of foundation, thereby depositing only a fraction of it on the skin.
Do makeup sponges make a difference? A makeup sponge gives the most skin-like finish and pushes the product into the complexion, the foundation doesn’t sit on top so it appears more seamless and natural. You can really beautifully build-up and blend the product from sheer to full-coverage, but you have to use a clean sponge!
