Have you ever tried on makeup? If so, you must be aware of all the wonderful inventions to make the makeup applying process more effective and easier. One such invention is the beautyblender. Yes, there are makeup brushes and sponges that can help you apply your makeup perfectly but a beautyblender can do so much more. Wondering how to use a beauty blender?
Here is how-
Dip the sponge in some water and squeeze out all the water. The sponge should be only damp and not soaking wet. This is important because the sponge will add moisture to your face as you apply your makeup. A beautyblender ensures your makeup is not applied to a dry skin, which will not only result in uneven layers of makeup but will also give a blotched look.
One of the main steps in learning how to use a beauty blender is, knowing how to hold it. The sponge is egg shaped and you should hold the thinner part in your hand and use the rounded edge to apply makeup. Though brushes have a smaller circumference, you should not use the thinner end of the sponge to apply your makeup.
Though it is an age old practice to rub a sponge, with the beautyblender, you should bounce it all over. Use small bouncy motion to dab the product onto your skin rather than rubbing it in. This is called stippling. This will give a smoother and even finish. This motion will blend in the product and gives you a more natural look.
Use The Smaller Side
Now that you know how to use a beautyblender by holding the smaller side, you should also learn how to use the smaller side to cover areas on your face. The broader side is not advisable to be used around the eyes and in the crease of your nose as you may either use too much product or miss out on spaces.
Dip the smaller end of the sponge in a little makeup (as you don’t want too much product) and use the same stippling technique to apply makeup under your eyes, around the creases and around your nose. You can even cover the area above your lips with the smaller side.

The beautyblender can not only be used to apply the perfect makeup, it has other uses too.
