Should I use the makeup sponge wet or dry?

Most of us think that makeup sponges are soft and supple enough to be used dry, which is simply true. Before using, run your sponge under running water and squeeze dry. You can also use a spray to mist the outside of the sponge, instead of running under water. The sponge only needs to be damp, not completely wet for best use.

How do I clean my makeup sponge?

Take out a small drop of mild liquid soap or baby shampoo onto your reusable makeup sponge, and squeeze the soap into the sponge with your fingers. Rinse it under warm water and squeeze out the excess water. We do not recommend a heavy-stain remover or detergent to clean your makeup sponge.
