Beauty blenders seem to be all the craze right now so I decided to give it a try. Best decision I’ve made in a while!
I got this beauty blender from Dischem on Sale for less than R30, now that’s a big win if you ask me. They come in different colours, shapes and sizes.
I use it everyday to blend my foundation and boy, does it work. It leaves my skin looking flawless unlike other methods of blending that sometimes make the foundation look unnatural, like its “caked on”. I apply the foundation directly onto my skin and then use the beauty blender. The tip of the beauty blender gets into all the difficult areas like under the eyes and allows me to blend it in with my neck.
It is a sponge so it’s super absorbent and without cleaning it you can experience breakouts (not fun!). On that note, a good cleaning method is essential. Here’s my easy DIY method:
Step 1: Dampen the beauty blender
Step 2: Dab a coin sized amount of dish washing liquid onto the beauty blender
Step 3: Massage the liquid into the beauty blender in an upward direction until the foundation is out
Step 4: Rinse and massage until all of the dish washing liquid and foundation is completely out
If you find that the foundation is difficult to remove then repeat step 2 until 4.
Along with keeping your beauty blender clean, it’s important to cleanse your face. Have a look at the Garnier Oil Control Complete
