If you’re like us, you probably use your Blender every day and incorporate it into your full makeup routine. But there’s a lot more to the Blender than meets the eye. There are helpful best practices to follow, along with tips and tricks you may never have thought of. Here’s everything you need to know about how to use a Blender for all its worth.
How to Use a Blender
The Blender is a versatile makeup sponge that can be used for practically anything in your makeup bag: foundations, bb cream, concealer, you name it. But in order to really get the most out of your Blender, follow our 3-step process: wet, squeeze, and bounce.
Many people are surprised to find that the Beautyblender is meant to be used when wet. Before each use, run it under your faucet until it’s fully soaked. You’ll notice that your Blender will increase in size. This is supposed to happen! The foam material in the blender absorbs the water instead of absorbing your product–leaving more of it on your skin without getting soaked up by your sponge.
Once your Beautyblender is fully saturated, it’s time to squeeze it out. The goal is to apply your makeup with a damp blender, so you’ll want to wring out all of the excess water. Your Beautyblender should then be at the ideal size and dampness to start dipping into your product. You can rest assured knowing that you’re not wasting product since it’s simply bouncing off of your sponge without getting soaked into it.
Now for the fun part: the bounce. Bounce powder or liquid foundation, bb cream, or concealer across your skin for a flawless finish. Pro tip: we don’t recommend dragging the blender across your face.
Swiping a Blender over your skin is just moving product around instead of properly laying it on. Bouncing creates a uniform, seamless coverage without streaks and lines. Bounce the pointed tip in hard to reach areas like under the eyes and nose and bounce the wider end on larger surfaces like your cheeks, chin and forehead.
