Makeup and skincare application is a big topic of conversation in the b-glowing office. Some swear by brushes and some by fingers, however once we experienced the beautyblender we quickly became devotees of this egg-shaped sponge. Professional makeup artists all over the world bow to the bouncing beautyblender because its ergonomically-designed shape and unique material gives you a flawless, "airbrushed" finish without soaking-up product or growing bacteria.
While all beautyblender spronges offer the same handcrafted, ergonomic shape, we recommend utilizing the Original, Pro, and Pure in order to keep your beauty routine clean and streamlined. The Original sponge is excellent for foundations, setting powders, and blushes. Whether you prefer a cream or powder formula, you can create a seamless, blended look with the classic beautyblender by dampening the sponge, bouncing and stippling the tool across your face and blending into the neck. Use the rounded bottom for larger surfaces and smaller tip for contours of the face and hard-to-reach areas like the nose and under eye.
Created as a nod to professional makeup artists who are usually clad in black, the beautyblender Pro, like the rest of the beautyblender collection, has endless uses but with it's dark color is used best to apply bronzers, contour products, and even darker cream eyeshadows and blushes. We love to use the Pro to apply sunless tanners for the face because you don't have to worry about staining your hands, and can get a much more even and thorough application than with your fingertips or a tanning mitt.
The Pure is dye-free and wonderful for sensitive skin types, but also works very well to evenly apply moisturizers, serums and primers. Believe it or not it can be difficult to get proper application of skincare and suncare with your hands, as you can't get in to all of the corners and nooks of the face. The pointed end of the Pure sponge is especially helpful when applying eye creams and serums. As you will be using your Original sponge for makeup and your Pro sponge for bronzers, your Pure sponge will remain stain and makeup free for your favorite skincare.
