Why Makeup Artists Are Calling This The Best Tool EVER!!

Beauty | LOVE EMBRACE INSPIRE  | By Jennifer Ford of Simply Jenners

There are a plethora of high end makeup brushes one could choose from, but more MUA are reaching for this affordable egg shaped sponge for perfecting their work. The Beautyblender's popularity has grown rapidly over the past year, due to claims of it being the ultimate blending tool. Even MAC makeup artist like Instagram famous Arma Olevic ( @amrezy) has boasted about the Beautyblender being the “truth” and the “best tool ever” for the most flawless application. Every good makeup artist knows that a good beat is all about the tools you use, so of course I had to try it out. I love it!

What I love about the Beautyblender ® is the way the sponge melts makeup into the skin, giving the appearance of natural coverage. No harsh lines. No gimmick. I also like the fact that this tool is super affordable in comparison to MAC and other brand name makeup brushes. The Beautyblender is a comfortable $20 and dupes can be purchased at prices cheaper than that!  What I find really amazing about the sponge is that it makes blending makeup easy and flawless. 

Here's How

For applying foundation, pat the round end of the sponge against your face. The patting motion is called stippling. This blends makeup without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. Use the pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes. The pointed end is also great for applying concealer and blending in your highlight. ​It's super simple!

Sense stumbling upon this little tool, I’ve totally ditched my MAC 187 brush and reach for this sponge every time I’m ready to apply makeup. It’s a must have! You can purchase the Beautyblender from Sephora for $20.

Are you using the sponge? What are your thoughts?
