This multipurpose makeup sponge is about to become a staple in your daily routine
New makeup tools can be daunting—and while the makeup sponge has been on the scene for a while now, it's still uncharted territory for some. Blending sponges are most often used to seamlessly apply foundation and concealer, but there are many other ways you can put this versatile applicator to use.
Here are our top tips on how to get the most out of your Evalina Beauty Flawless Face Blending Sponge...
1. Applying makeup
This may seem like an obvious one. That's what blending sponges are for, right? But did you know that you can use your beauty sponge for more than just your base layers of makeup.
Used damp, this magic tool provides a flawless foundation and concealer application (it's great for getting in those hard to reach places around the nostrils and under the eyes). It can also be used to apply cream-based makeup products like bronzer, blush and highlighter.
Seamlessly add warmth, build cheek colour and add a glow by using your damp sponge to stipple product onto the desired areas until you achieve the look you want. Our pro tip is to start with a small amount and then build the product onto your skin to create a more natural look.
2. Applying skincare products and sunscreen
Using a beauty sponge to apply your skincare is a great way to target specific dry patches, blemishes, and to blend out richer or creamier formulas on oily skin. You can also use the applicator to apply your favourite face oil as a highlighter after your makeup routine—that way your skin reaps the benefits while also giving you a glowy, natural look.
We don't need to tell you to wear SPF daily (if you don't already, please do), but on those sunnier days, you may need to reapply it to the higher points on your face (i.e. nose, cheekbones, forehead). And, as we all know, cleanliness is super-important (this year more than ever), so using a makeup sponge instead of your hands to top up your SPF is not only hygienic, but it also allows you to target specific areas with precision.
3. Mixing products
So we know you can use your Evalina Flawless Face Blending Sponge for makeup and skincare, but have you ever thought of combining the two? For those who are looking to create a more natural finish with their foundation base, squeeze a little bit of product onto the back of your hand and add your favourite moisturizer. Use your sponge to blend the two together to create a sheerer formula that applies flawlessly to the skin.
4. Refreshing your makeup
After a busy day running errands, it's easy for makeup to lose its flawless finish and leave your skin with an oily residue. Instead of reaching into your bag and reapplying your concealer to cover up any makeup that may have shifted, reblend your makeup by giving your beauty sponge a light spritz of your favourite essence or toner and lightly dab those shiny areas for a refreshing touch-up.
