Everyone always raves the Beautyblender Sponge for its ability to apply foundation to an airbrushed finish. But personally I use a Beautyblender to apply skincare, yes, skincare. It’s actually a great way to target drier areas on your face and also a fab way to sheer out richer or creamier formulas on oily skin.
So grab your trusty Beautyblender (preferably a new one! I keep one around for skincare and one around for foundation) and now grab your favorite skin products to use it with. This is a trick I use in the AM only since I prefer applying my moisturizers, serums, etc..using my fingers in the PM.
Now grab some of your favorite beauty products and get to work.
Here’s some skincare products I like using my Beautyblender with!
Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base
Winter is here and it is not a gentle season on dry skin! This lightweight cream absorbs easily into skin and hydrates it with an oil-free finish. I like dipping my Beautyblender into it and gently patting it on my face using the sponge. After patting you can swipe the sponge across your face to get a better finish. This creates a smooth, well hydrated surface for your foundation.
Dr Jart Ceramidin Gel-Cream (Review)
When the cold weather hits I end up having a runny nose without a doubt. Typically this results in a dry, flaky nose and also down the sides of my face by my cheeks becomes rather dry too. I like dipping my Beautyblender sponge into Dr Jart’s Ceramidin Gel-Cream and smoothing it on these drier areas so my foundation and makeup has a nice smooth area to adhere to and this is also a great way to have it not adhere to drier areas.
Josie Maran Argan Oil
I’ve repeatedly said I dislike applying facial oil in the day! But placing a tiny amount in the palm of your hand and dipping a Beautyblender into it and applying using this method allows for a sheer, moist layer that aids foundation in applying way smoother and easier without leaving your skin too dewy, shiny, or greasy. This is also a great way for oily skin users to enjoy oils as it sheers the formula out considerably and allows for a thinner layer to applied to skin!
Do you ever apply skincare with your Beautyblender or even any other makeup sponge?
