You only use it for your cream makeup.
Beautyblender is not just for concealer or foundation. It can be used for applying setting powder, which gives it more control on putting the product.
Using the sponge dry.
Alright! You probably know this one but in case you didn’t read the instructions or catch a youtube tutorial, it works best when its wet (DUH!). It creates a more dewy finish.
You are throwing away the package.
That plastic package is perfect for air-drying after cleaning it. So don’t throw it away.
You are not cleaning it the right way.
Even if you clean your Beautyblender after each use but sometime you need to deep clean it.
You store it the wrong way.
The last thing you want to do is to put wet sponge in your makeup bag. And don’t even think of putting it in a plastic bag! By putting it in a dark place without oxygen is a breeding ground for bacteria. GROSS! Store it in a mesh bag so it can breathe.
You have no idea which one to purchase.
The Beautyblender is great for everyone but there are options. Here’s how to choose the best blender for you:
PINK (The Original Bb)
The OG blender is perfect for streak-free makeup application.
WHITE (The Pure Bb)
This blender is DYE-free so its great for sensitive skin and for applying skincare products.
BLACK (The Bb Pro)
Ideal for deeper colors and for applying bronzers and long wear makeup.
GREEN (The Micro-Mini)
The Micro-Mini gets into smaller areas easily like corners of your eyes and nose.
You are not re-purposing them.
It’s recommended that you buy new Bb after every three months but you can use it longer for other things. Re-purpose your Bb and use it to remove stains on your clothes or for removing your nail polish.
You are too aggressive when you wash it.
It’s just a sponge so be gentle or you can tear it. Apply the cleanser where it’s needed, pinch the product into the sponge and dab in water. Then roll it between you palms.
You are not bouncing it.
Many Youtubers refers to it as “POUNCING SPONGE” (Pressing + Bouncing = POUNCING). Pouncing foundation helps to deposit the product on to your skin. Don’t Drag It!!!
You are not using it to apply moisturizer.
Just like it apply makeup, you can press skincare gently into the skin. Its perfect for applying eye cream too as it doesn’t plug or tug at delicate skin.
