Fab Finds – Beauty Blender

I’m the type of person who rarely puts on make-up.  Why?

1.  I’m too lazy to go through the millions of different make-up stuff.  And I can’t stand foundation on my face daily.

2.  I don’t know how to put on make-up! (hahaha, this should be my #1 reason)

3.  I don’t like the feeling of having too much stuff on my face.

4.  I’m the type who’s on the go and doesn’t have much time to spend in the dressing room.

5.  I know if I start getting into it, it can lead to a very expensive hobby.

6.  Gives my kids more stuff to play with and destroy!

I used to just put powder and lipgloss.  Then I tried “getting into make-up” and bought some brushes for foundation, powder, stiffling, & blush.  Gosh! I never knew brushes could be that expensive!  Anyway, I tried doing the whole make-up thing for a couple of weeks and it just really wasn’t for me.  I got too LAZY!  (using diff brushes, make-up, cleaning them, and even cleaning my face was double the work) So all the brushes and make-up I bought were kept for special occasions.  I had no patience to do it on a daily basis.  So to all those who do the entire make-up thing daily, I salute you!  It’s a skill 🙂

But recently, I found this perfect applicator, the Beauty Blender.  It’s the only thing I need to put on any type of make-up.  So I use it to put on blush, conceal, or highlight.  And let me tell you, it really blends well without getting your fingers dirty.  I found out about this product a little too late!

Now, I love this product as it gets me made up in a couple of minutes putting some color on my face.  At least the make-up I bought didn’t go to waste :-).  Works like a charm!

Beauty Blender $16. It can also be found at Rustan's for P1,450.

Here’s more about the product:

Modernize the way you make up

Now you can look like a movie star without the pricey services of a major make up artist. Introducing Beautyblender, the ultimate make up sponge applicator. Invented by top Hollywood make up artists Rea Ann Silva and Veronica Lorenz, Beautyblender has been created to leave you with a professional finish and a flawless complexion. Silva and Lorenz know that the key to a perfect face is simple: a perfect blend. So forget your fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges, these application methods waste make up and can leave visible streaks.

Beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable. Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.

Made in USA

Directions: Blend your way to a flawless face! Seeing make up is the first sign of an amateur application. Beautyblender was created without edges in order to eliminate visible lines and streaks. So go ahead, experiment fearlessly with your Beautyblender and discover the many ways its unique shape will set you free!

Bounce Beautyblender against your face when applying make up. Bouncing, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. Use Beautyblender’s pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes. Use the round base for foundation and blush on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin.

If you apply make up with your fingers you’ll find that Beautyblender will smooth and refine your make up to provide a clean finish.

Use Beautyblender damp when applying wet/dry make up. When Beautyblender is wet it is normal for it to expand to nearly twice its original size. Wash after use and place in the Beautyblender insert pedestal to dry. You can also put Beautyblender in the Beautyblender pouch and toss it in the dryer. Be sure to use an air-dry setting; Beautyblender should not come in contact with extreme heat of any kind.

If you have problem skin Beautyblender works to cover blemishes. Use the pointed end and the stipple and twist technique to work make up into depressed areas of the face. The stippling and twisting action feathers out the makeup’s edges, leaving a perfect finish.
