First, keep it wet. This is actually the initial step to do when getting ready to use the beauty food blender. Hold the sponge under the faucet and squeeze to allow drinking water to seep into the sponge. After the sponge is nice saturated, squeeze out excess water and blot inside a towel to get it perfectly damp. By doing this, you’ lmost all notice that it expands the size of the sponge, prepping this for use. The water absorbs into it, allowing the product to take a seat on top of the sponge rather than being soaked into it, delivering the seamless makeup application.

Second, keep it functional. The attractiveness about the beauty food blender is that you can use it for a number of products like primer, serums, moisturizer, foundation, concealer, loose & pressed powder, water bronzer, cream blush, ect. There are so many options and you can obtain pretty creative on new techniques! A tool that delivers multi-versatile application while ensuring quality results is to me what makes this product a total must have.

Third, maintain it bouncing. The key to a perfect application using the blender is to utilize all areas of the cloth or sponge while maintaining a liquid “ bouncing” motion. In the makeup world we contact this stippling. The sponge is shaped similar to a good egg, and because of this there are 2 main areas of make use of: the point, and the bottom. The pointed part of the beauty food blender is smaller and precise, allowing it to fit into areas like the under the eyes, and corners of the nose, while the bigger area on the bottom is great to use on wider places such as the cheeks, chin, and forehead. No matter which end from the blender you’ re using, make sure to keep it bouncing when you apply your makeup for a non-streaky, skin like, completely blended application.

Lastly, keep it clean! The blender is made of a latex-free foam which can be cleansed over and over again, allowing you to get the most bang for your buck. Elegance Blender (the company) does make a cleanser to use, yet that isn’ t your only option. I love making use of warm water with castile soap because it eliminates all of the make-up that the sponge is holding, while leaving it smelling AMAZING! Another alternative is using dish soap to get your cloth or sponge squeaky clean. If you are looking to completely sanitize your BB, place it in the dish of water and microwave for 30 secs. After you let it dry on its own, it should be ready for you to recycle!
