I’m not a makeup expert, or a beauty blogger. In fact, there are many days where I don’t put any makeup on at all. Don’t even ask about my almost non-existant skincare ritual. But on other days, I want to look like an enhanced version of myself; one that is more polished and perfected without looking over-done.
To achieve this look, my tools of choice were mostly my fingers. Smear it on, and smooth it out were my mottos. Every beauty blogger, Youtuber, and editor swears by the Beauty Blender, but until I read a post from it’s makeup artist | creator, I didn’t give it a second glance. Now that I’ve tried it, I’m a convert. If you’re looking for a finish that is natural and flawless (or as flawless as you can get given the face beneath the makeup) then this tool is a must have.
Shaped like a bright fucshia egg, the pointy end is able to get into those hard to reach spots around your nose, and at the inner corners of the eyes. The sides are perfect for blending broader areas, such as the cheeks and forehead. You simply get it wet, squeeze the excess water out, and pat it gently around your face to blend foundation, concealer, and even blush, for a seamless look.
The patting motion keeps the makeup from being rubbed off, but blurs the edges so that they are invisable. The dampness keeps the sponge supple and absorbs less product than a dry sponge. Once you are done, there is no obvious beginning and end to your makeup; just a smooth and natural finish that makes your skin look healthier and smoother than ever before. You can even skip using foundation all over your face, and use the tool to blend concealer with your own, bare skin for a more natural effect.
Tapping takes a moment longer than smearing, but the results are well worth the time.
