The Best Beauty Blender Sponges for a Flawless Face This Summer

Watch out ladies, because the Beauty Blender is not a force to be reckoned with this summer. There is a reason why professional makeup artists keep more than one in their makeup kits at all times. Since the brand launched 14 years ago by A-list celebrity makeup artist Rea Ann Silva, it has become an insider favorite and created a new category of famed egg shaped, edgeless sponge applicators. She conceptualized the sponges while creating flawless makeup looks for the late Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Rod Stewart–just to name a few. The Beauty Blenders go miles beyond the traditional flat triangle sponge. With a round shape on one end and precision on the other, no other blender can achieve the same effortless dewy, airbrushed finish.

So, no shocker here. The Original Beauty Blender has been a full-on cult favorite for years. This product will always remain supreme among beauty novices and pros alike. You literally can’t talk to a makeup artist without Beauty Blender somehow making its way into the conversation. It definitely leans more towards the bank breaker side, but its high-quality materials and flat-out amazing function makes it worth every single rupee.

The narrowed tip allows for getting into the nooks and crannies of the face, like the tough corners around the nose. It even works to touch up concealer for dark-under eye circles half way through the day without smudging the lower lash mascara. The density and bounce associated with the sponge is also just right. It can be used dry, but many prefer to use it when it is just a bit damp. The porous sponge obviously grows significantly when wet, but when the water is squeezed out all of you’ve got to do is dab on for an absolutely perfect sheer finish.

There is a bit of a difference with application when it comes to using a BB cream/tinted moisturizer or a full-on liquid foundation. When using the latter, it is best to pour out a few squirts on the back of the hand and then use the Beauty Blender like a paintbrush. It’s made from a latex-free sponge called hydrophilic foam which prevents the absorption of too much product. If you are using a BB cream or tinted moisturizer, however, the sponge will absorb a bit too much product. Instead spread the BB cream all over the face with fingertips, then use the Beauty Blender to dab and blend all over to create a flawless surface with no stroke marks.

The Original Beauty Blender is bright pink, but there are many other Beauty Blenders available in a range of shades. There is also the coin-sized Beauty Blender Micro Mini. It is like the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids version of the Original Beauty Blender. So, for those particularly tricky areas like the corners of of the eyes, the teeny almond-sized sponges help with dabbing on concealer. They are perfect for keeping in tow at all times to touch up makeup on-the-go.

Now that I have proven that we are not alone in believing that Beauty Blender is worth the investment, jump on ASAP for professional, even coverage that guarantees a perma flawless look. It holds up after several washings (get yourself a kit that comes with the special Blendercleanser, or purchase a Solid or Liquid Blendercleanser separately), so while initial investment may be higher than some of the other blenders, the high quality Beauty Blender will last. That also means less environmental waste with this greener option. You know what that means ladies, get yourself a Beauty Blender for a flawless face–and save the planet while you’re at it 😉
