Why You Should Own a Beauty Blender
Last week one of my girlfriends got a makeover. The makeup artist used a Beauty Blender. My friend was amazed by this small, hot pink, egg-shaped makeup tool. She could not believe how effortlessly the beauty egg blended the foundation into her skin.
The Beauty Blender allows you to get closer to your face to paint a better canvas of makeup for whatever look it is that you are trying to create. It is a 2016 Best of Beauty Allure winner.
I thought to myself, “How does anyone live without owning several Beauty Blenders?” I first caught on to the Beauty Blender about six months ago, and have not used anything else since to apply concealer to my dark circles from the late nights that being a writer brings to your face. However, it can be used for so many other things such as sunscreen, night creams, eye gels, etc.
The Beauty Blender is meant to be used wet, because when wet it allows makeup to glide very easily onto skin without streaking or leaving uneven patches of color on your face. The blender is made of sponge-like material that absorbs water easily and allows for just the right moment to squeeze out when you are blotting your skin and applying pressure to apply your makeup.
It is best used with a blotting motion then a sliding motion. When you blot, you are able to get the makeup into nooks and crannies, like around your eyes, up close to your ears and around your nose. Once the makeup is applied, you then slide the egg through the blots of makeup to create a very smooth, flawless look.
The Beauty Blender should be cleaned once a week and replaced every three months. Compared to a regular sponge for makeup application, the Beauty Blender is has a tip and is egg-shaped for a good grip. It is also made of a unique type of sponge that wets your makeup with just the right amount of water that will make for great makeup blending.
