Common FAQs on the BeautyBlender
- What is the original beautyblender?
The beautyblender features an open cell structure that fills with small amounts of water when wet. This allows the sponge to be “full” so that the makeup product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. When wet, beautyblender® doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size when it air dries.
- Do you wash beautyblender after every use?
Your beautyblender should ideally be washed after every use—it needs a little more love than your regular brushes. For a quick rinse, run it under warm water until the water becomes clear.
- Are beauty blenders better than brushes?
Professionals have been using sponges to apply makeup for ages, citing a more flawless "airbrushed" effect to the skin. Similarly, beautyblenders work better than other makeup sponges in transferring the most product, so you are using less foundation, but getting more coverage
- Where should I store my beautyblender?
When traveling, store it in ventilated pouches instead of a makeup bag or plastic bag, so the sponge can breathe. You do not replace it often enough. Depending on how regularly you use your Beauty Blender, they do need to be replaced more frequently than some of your other makeup tools.
- What are mini beautyblenders for?
Mini is ¼ the size of the original beauty blender, but grows to twice its size when wet, making it the perfect size to manoeuvre into small areas such as the under eye, inner eye corners, lids, brow bones, sides of the nose, top of the cheeks and acne spots.
- What beautyblender color is best?
The original beautyblender is pink and it is the most widely used. However, the company has come up with black, yellow, nude, red and purple ones. Each of them is designed with a specific purpose in mind – for example, the black one is for professional make-up artist.
Whether you are serving up high-def contouring for the ‘gram or just trying to look amazing on the daily, a good makeup sponge can help. There are a ton of different ones out there, and at different price points too. But the original BeautyBlender is definitely one of the most renowned ones.
