Holy Grail to flawless foundation? What is this chick talking about? Well let me tell you….Rea Ann Silva’s BeautyBlender! I absolutely love this makeup sponge. About 6 months ago, my dear friend Ericka and I were conversing about makeup and came across this product. There were so many rave reviews about this product and every MUA we came across loved it. We both were eager to try it, but Ms. Ericka beat me to the punch in getting the sponge first. Little did I know she had a surprise for me one day while we were out and about. During this outing she unexpectedly pulled out a beauty blender and indicated that it was mine. Ericka and my god daughter Ari are great for surprising me. Thanks to her I have been hooked ever since.
The sponge itself is extremely soft with a plush texture. The design of the sponge is great for makeup application. The BeautyBlender’s round side is great for stippling foundation and providing an even application. The pointed side works wonders in reaching those hard spots (i.e. under the eyes and around the nostrils). AMAZING! So where can you get these lovely sponges you ask? Well that’s simple…Sephora. Check out the website as they offer the BeautyBlender with a cleanser as well. Check out my method to using this lovely product.
My BeautyBlender Application Technique for Foundation & Concealer
First I dampen my BeautyBlender with water and squeeze out any excess water. Next, I place my liquid foundation on the back of my hand and press the BeautyBlender lightly into the foundation. I then stipple the foundation all over my face and lightly roll the sponge to help smooth the foundation. When applying concealer under my eye I use the same stippling technique with both the rounded/pointed side and then use more of a rolling motion for a smooth and flawless application.
If you’re looking to revamp your foundation/concealer application, definitely try the BeautyBlender. If it’s one thing I live by in my foundation routine, it is definitely Rea Ann Silva’s BeautyBlender.
