Make Up Blending Sponge With Face Kabuki Make up Brush
OUR BLENDING SPONGE AND FACE KABUKI MAKE UP BRUSH BEAUTY COMBO IS A GREAT VALUE PACK!
SIZE AND SHAPE MATTER
The size and shape of makeup sponges varies depending on what they're being used for. Larger, rounded sponges like our Blending Sponge are used for the application of tinted moisturizer, BB or CC cream, foundation and even cream blush, the tear drop shape and its size of 6CM in height, serves both as a precise make up blending and used for under eye area and to conceal blemishes.
HOW TO USE
STEP 1: Before you begin your makeup application, wet the sponge until it’s completely saturated and squeeze out any excess water.
STEP 2: Pour a small amount of liquid foundation onto the back of your hand, dip the rounded end of your sponge into the makeup, and begin applying to your face. Do not rub or drag the sponge across your skin. Instead, gently dab or blot the area until your foundation is completely blended. Use the same dabbing technique when applying concealer underneath your eyes and cream blush to your cheeks. You can also use your sponge for blending cream contouring products and highlighter.
HOW TO KEEP YOUR MAKE UP SPONGE CLEAN
There are special cleansers created for makeup sponges, but mild soap will also do the trick! Run your makeup sponge under warm water while adding a few drops of soap (or even baby shampoo), and massage out the stains until your water runs clear. Roll it onto a clean towel to remove any moisture, and lay it flat on the towel to dry. Do this once a week and be sure to replace your sponge every couple of months (depending on frequency of use).
HOW TO STORE YOUR MAKE UP SPONGE
If there’s one package you shouldn’t throw out, it’s the plastic your beauty sponge comes in. These make the perfect holders for your sponge, and are an eco-friendly way to up cycle the packaging.
THE HISTORY OF THE KABUKI BRUSHES
Traditional Japanese Kabuki theatres - which trace their roots back to the 1600s - were known for highly stylized drama performance and actors with elaborate makeup.
Preceding each performance was a ritual of makeup application, where large and dense makeup brushes were used in order to cover the actors’ skin with makeup. These came to be known as Kabuki Brushes.
WHAT ARE KABUKI BRUSHES USED FOR TODAY?
Today, Kabuki brushes are available to be used in our everyday makeup routines. Morning or night! They can come in a variety of shapes: flat, rounded, angles and dome.
While each shape is used for achieving different results with your makeup, generally, the goal of all kabuki brushes is to create soft, airbrushed, poreless-looking skin.
HOW TO USE KABUKI BRUSHES?
A traditional Kabuki brush is large and rounded in shape. It is used for buffing in your foundation or powder into your skin, in order to polish it into the perfect coverage.
The key to using a Kabuki brush? Blending in rounded motions! This is how you get that pore-less “J Lo skin” that looks soft and dewy under any lighting.
You can have a regimen of top-quality products, but without a top-quality brush, those products wont be able to shine to their fullest potential.
