What is a Beautyblender?

In the simplest terms, it is a makeup application tool, but there is a lot more to it than that. To the uninitiated, the Beautyblender can seem a bit odd. Everything from its teardrop shape and vivid colour (especially the original bright pink shade) can be intimidating, but don’t worry. We will walk you through the basics of what a Beautyblender is, including what it does, who made it, and what makes it so special.

TheBeautyblender sponge is not only easy to use, but it is also versatile. It can be used to apply foundations, concealers, BB and CC creams, setting powders, and more makeup products in a natural, smooth, luminous way. Some people even apply skincare products with it, because the Beautyblender really pushes products into the skin. It was created by a professional makeup artist with years of experience working on film and television sets and with a wide range of skin types and tones. Her need for a practical tool that would deliver the best results, even under HD cameras led to her experimentations with sponges. As a result, she developed her own sponge with not only the ideal shape, but texture, consistency, and bounce. Yes, bounce! This is the secret to the Beautyblender’s amazing results.

How to Use a Beautyblender

The first thing you should know about using your Beautyblender is that it was designed to be used wet. While some people do use it dry, you will get the best results – and avoid wasting your makeup products – with a damp Beautyblender. A wet Beautyblender will not only give your skin a more radiant look, but it will also absorb less of your makeup. By absorbing less product, it will push more of it into your skin and you will need to use less of your makeup. Your sponge will also be softer, which means it will bounce better against your skin.

To prep your Beautyblender for use, just run it under water until it is about twice its original size, and then gently squeeze the excess water. It will be ready for use when it is still twice as large, but not dripping water when squeezed.

Once your Beautyblender is suitably damp, all you have to do is apply your makeup! It works for both liquid and dry products and all you have to do it dab it against your skin, on the desired areas. You can be a little firm with your application, but always remember to be gentle with both your skin and your Beautyblender.

How to Clean a Beautyblender sponge

Keeping it simple, just wash your Beautyblender thoroughly after every use and leave it to airdry completely before putting it away.

A clean Beautyblender is not only more hygienic and better for your skin, but it will last longer and give you better results. Knowing how to wash your sponge is actually just as important as knowing how to use it, so we will teach you how to clean your Beautyblender properly, so that you can make the best use of it.

There are several cleaning and drying methods out there(both conventional and unorthodox), but there is no need to complicate things. All you need is an appropriate cleanser, some water, and a place to leave your Beautyblender to airdry. While washing, you will know your Beautyblender is clean by squeezing it gently. If the water that comes out from inside is clear, then you are good to go! To dry it, squeeze the excess water and then set it in a dry and airy spot. Remember to turn it over once in a while to make sure the sponge is dry all around.
