Once in a while, a product comes along that is so amazing, it quicky gains a cult following and icon status. The Shu Uemura curler, MAC’s infamous 187 “skunk” brush, and Eve Pearl’s Salmon concealer are just a few of the must-haves that come to mind.
One of our favorites is the beautyblender
. This hot pink, egg-shaped, latex free super sponge has revolutionized the way we apply our foundation. A staple in many a top artist’s makeup kit, the sponge’s elliptical shape allows for reaching every crease and contour of your face, eliminating streaks and ensuring a flawless finish.
has it’s own special cleanser, which smells AMAZING, and prolongs the life of the sponge. Blendercleanser
is a lightly lavender-scented cleanser that’s free of
dyes and skin irritants. It’s soothing soy-based, low-suds formula
breaks down rapidly, making it earth-friendly and fun to use.
To ensure the best application, it’s recommended that you dampen the
sponge, squeeze out the excess water, and lightly tap and roll, or “bounce” the
sponge over foundation to smooth it out and blend into the skin. Whether
cream, liquid, cake, or tinted moisturizer, the beautyblender’
texture gives a perfect finish every time.
Try it once, and you’ll see why celebrity makeup artists are never without it (One of our personal heroes, Mary Erickson, carries at least two at all times).
