One of the makeup essentials that you can’t do without is a makeup blender sponge. The egg-shaped makeup applicator has become a global necessity for professionals and makeup enthusiasts. The versatile makeup product gives a beautiful and flawless finish. The pointed tip allows you to apply makeup under the eyes, around the nose, and along the lips, with ease. If you are a newbie (welcome to the club!) and don’t have much idea about using the product, we are here to help. The blog provides you some useful tips to use the increasingly popular makeup sponge like a pro! Read on.

Stipple Your Makeup Products

Whether you are applying foundation, cream blush or moisturizer, avoid rubbing the makeup sponge on your face. Ensure you wet the blender completely before using it. Squeeze the excess water out of the sponge and dab into your makeup. Apply the foundation using blender on your skin and press it slightly on the surface for a natural look.

Blend the Bronzer

Instead of using your fingers to apply bronzer, you can use this versatile makeup sponge. Use a damp makeup blender to evenly apply bronzer and self-tanners. You can also get rid of streaks, random blotches or intense saturation by using this little gem.

Use for Skincare Regime

Another great use for the makeup sponge is to apply moisturizers, primers & serums.  Before you use the sponge, make sure that it is wet, so that it doesn’t absorb the product. The makeup blender enables you to apply the product gently on your skin without tugging or damaging the skin. Always ensure use a dye and latex free sponge if you have sensitive skin.

And Finally

Though there are countless makeup sponges available on the market, this essential tool is a must-have for any makeup bag. The versatile tool has numerous uses and helps to achieve that  flawless look. Makeup sponges do however need to be stored with care, or they can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. To store your makeup blender, always use a high quality protective case, such as Blenderelle. The makeup blender case from NYC Designed comes with an EPA-registered antimicrobial technology that helps control bacteria.
