So, what difference can a twenty-dollar sponge honestly make with foundation application?
In my honest opinion, a lot.
For a long time the BeautyBlender sounded very gimmicky to me. I mean, couldn’t I just go buy the pink knock-off sponges at CVS? Well, you can, but the BeautyBlender is soft, silky, washable, and reusable. It’s meant to handle a lot of work, and it is not the same as your typical drugstore sponge. The results when it comes to foundation application are true to the hype, and I believe this tool works better than foundation brushes! I purchased one perhaps a month ago and I have to tell you that I haven’t picked up a foundation brush since.
So, here’s a quick how-to on applying foundation with a BeautyBlender (along with a bonus how-to on Glossier’s BoyBrow). Enjoy! xo, MR
