How to Use Beauty Blender For a Flawless Makeup Routine
Stroll backstage at any fashion show or check a vanity of any makeup-loving person, Beauty Blender has indeed achieved a cult status presence. First created by Rean Ann Silvia, Hollywood’s ace makeup artist, in a signature pink colour, this egg-shaped makeup applicator is indeed the best tool for applying your whole makeup routine. So, the question we boil down to is to how to use the Beauty Blender? Well, for starters, the idea of using this blender is to fill in those lines or streaks for a more concentrated application when applying makeup. Here’s a step-by-step procedure to use your beauty blender for a flawless makeup routine.
1 Squeeze and stipple foundation with beauty blender
Either you apply foundation by using a cream-based formula or powder one; the first and foremost step when using a blender is too wet it out nicely under running tap water. Squeeze out the excess water and dab it on your face. Make sure you are bouncing it against your skin and pressing slightly on the surface, instead of rubbing it. This method is also known as stippling, which gives you a natural flush of colour by giving more coverage with a lesser amount of product.
2 Set your concealer to keep it from creasing
Applying concealer often gives redness and weird age lines under eyes, this is when applying concealer with a damp beauty blender will do the trick. Up and above the concealer, also use a loose setting powder as it helps to instantly brighten the under eye and keep the makeup in its place. Take a small amount of loose powder on your blender, give the excess powder a little tap and then apply it carefully under your eye using the pointy end of the blender. Do this step when the concealer is slightly wet as it will allow the powder to seep into your skin where those fine lines typically appear.
3 Contour and highlight your bone structure
The biggest trick in getting your highlight and contour on point is by using the Beauty Blender’s tip properly. The tiny tip gets to the smallest of places on our face. Start by taking a damp Beauty Blender and by using stippling motion apply your highlight and contour. And the result with be such a swift glow of highlight and contour, without feeling the heaviness of it.
4 Blend your blush so you don’t look like a doll
Using powdery blushes in summer is a big no-no for some. Using a cream blush instead is a great way to get the most natural-looking flush. Again, the trick for applying blush is the same, to make sure your makeup sponge is damp. Start by damping on your blush, then use ever-so gentle sweeping motions to blend the product onto your cheeks.
