Adding layers upon layers of foundation is the opposite of helpful if it ends up looking caked on. Get a smooth, natural-looking finish with the help of makeup artist-approved beautyblender®. This kit includes a duo of two hot pink sponges—keep one as a spare, or use both with differing shades of foundation for contouring effects—and lavender-scented, low-suds cleanser, which gets rid of the bacteria, dirt, and oil that can accumulate over time.
How it Works
Unlike traditional sponges, the soft texture and elliptical shape of the beautyblender® allows foundation to blend into skin with a natural finish and no streaks. When saturated with water, the sponge will expand to twice its size, making it easy to cover your whole face and still get into all the nooks and crannies. Using the sponge damp prevents it from absorbing excess foundation, so you won’t be wasting any makeup. Use the soy-based blendercleanser® to clean your tools regularly and keep them in pristine condition. It’s also a way of doing your skin a favor. Soy has natural moisturizing properties and dissolves any dirt and debris trapped in your brushes and sponges.
How to Use
Saturate your blender with water and squeeze out excess. Pick up a small amount of foundation with the blender and apply to your skin with a tapping motion to distribute and blend. Use the pointed end of the sponge to get into small areas near your nose and eyes. To clean your sponge, saturate it with blendercleanser®, work into a mild lather, and rinse in warm water.
