HOW TO USE A BEAUTY BLENDER?
Here is the step by step way to use:
Moisten the Sponge with Water: One of the biggest mistake one can make with a beauty blender is using it dry to apply the makeup and skin care products but the correct way to use it is to dampen it under the sink so that it is thoroughly saturated as it will cause the sponge to expand which will help it to not soak up as much of the cosmetic products.
Use warm or cool water to dampen the blender, though cool water is more preferable as it will give your application a refreshing feeling.
If while using the sponge you do not have access to the sink then use bottled water or spritz it with your setting spray to dampen it.
Squeeze the Sponge to Remove the Excess Water: Make sure that your sponge does not hold any excess water by squeezing it out. Beauty Blenders are fairly delicate so do not wring the sponge to get the water out or else you might end up tearing or ripping it. Wrap it up in a towel or a piece of paper towel to help absorb the excess water.
Rehydrate the Beauty Blender: While doing the makeup of your full face, you might find your sponge getting dry while you are applying it so to ensure that you get a flawless results from the first step of your make up routine to the last, keep a spray bottle of water, setting spray on hand so that you can dampen the sponge whenever needed.
Applying Makeup: With the Beauty Blender, the key to applying makeup is using a bouncing or stippling motion instead of wiping or sweeping motion. You can either apply make up to your face or to the Beauty Blender.
Wash and Dry: Once you are done with the makeup, use some good soap and water to wash it off and then dry it using top of the jar that comes with the blender to let it rest and air – dry.
