Why you need it:
The Beautyblender allows you to apply your foundation seamlessly, adding more product where you need it and blending it out to a beautiful sheer finish where you need less coverage. Don't fall for the knock-offs, they're totally subpar.
Why I love it:
You can find this product in pretty much every single makeup artist’s kit, it's a tool that is indispensable. I use it every time I do makeup and I honestly cannot work without it. Not only does it allow you to apply your foundation flawlessly, but you can also use it for blending creamy products, like cream blush or bronzer. If you have found that your foundation, powder or blush seems too heavy after you’re done, use the Beauty Blender with a little foundation (or even moisturizer) to thin out your makeup where it’s too heavy, and voilá, flawless finish. Seriously, this tool is a work horse.
*Pro tip: The Masters Brush Cleaner & Preserver is the best way to clean the Beautyblender; it gets every spot of makeup out of them and they look like new after every cleaning.
Bounce Beautyblender against your face when applying make up. Bouncing, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. Use Beautyblender's pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes. Use the round base for foundation and blush on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin.
If you apply make up with your fingers you'll find that Beautyblender will smooth and refine your make up to provide a clean finish.
Use Beautyblender damp when applying wet/dry make up. When Beautyblender is wet it is normal for it to expand to nearly twice its original size. Wash after use and place in the Beautyblender insert pedestal to dry. Beautyblender should not come in contact with extreme heat of any kind.
If you have problem skin Beautyblender works to cover blemishes. Use the pointed end and the stipple and twist technique to work make up into depressed areas of the face. The stippling and twisting action feathers out the make up's edges, leaving a perfect finish.
