The tear-dropped beauty blenders made from Fuchsia sponge isn’t a stranger to anyone; it has been used as a frequent makeup blender ever since its debut in 2007. We see many makeup gurus online using this sponge to give their makeup the perfect finish.
The Beauty blender has spawned dupes with their own appeal, like the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and the Juno & Co Microfiber Velvet Sponge. But no matter which makeup sponge you prefer, you may not be using it to its fullest potential. The squishy tools do more than just deposit foundation and concealer on your skin. Your eye makeup and skin-care routine could benefit from some Beauty blending too. To prove it, I asked six makeup artists and one dermatologist to share unexpected ways they often find themselves working with Beautyblenders and other beauty sponges.
Keep Parts Clean
Your first instinct may be to blend out foundation with the bottom of a Beautyblender, but makeup artist Ash K Holm, who’s worked with Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello, prefers to keep that part of the sponge clean. Once she’s done buffing in base makeup, she uses the clean, rounded area of the Beautyblender to blot away excess product.
