What Are Your Thoughts On The Beautyblender?
Tuesday, May 24, 2016
Having the right tools is so important in makeup application! I love my makeup brushes, but I am really warming up to the Beautyblender :) I must admit, I wasn't a fan at first. But I also wasn't using it correctly! LOL Now I love the finish it gives me when I apply my foundation. It also blends my concealer with ease and gives me better coverage. It's so important to wet your Beautyblender! The first time I did, it was too wet. HaHaHa In the video, it says to squeeze and use a paper towel to get the excess water out. Some people use a spray water bottle to mist it. I like spraying mine with Smashbox Primer Water. I also prefer putting my liquid foundation on the back of my hand and dabbing the Beautyblender into the product. But now, there's a circular plastic tray that you can purchase (surface simple) if you don't want to put products on the back of your hand! HaHaHa How fancy! Why am I thinking about buying it? LOL I originally purchased the pink Beautyblender, but I'm more smitten with the nude one (only at Sephora ... Why!?!?). After using, it doesn't look as dirty as the pink one. I'm also interested in purchasing the white one for for application of skincare products (primer, moisturizer, eye cream). I haven't tried the Beautyblender with blushes, contouring creams or powder products. Not sure how that would turn out. Let me know your thoughts/techniques on the Beautyblender! Do you use it or something else? Or do you prefer makeup brushes? I found these two videos on Popsugar Beauty / Kirbie Johnson (YouTube). She's funny!
