The Beauty Blender Sponge
The Beauty Blender Sponge: We love this tool! Invented by Hollywood makeup artist, Rea Ann Silva, it was created to leave you with a profesional finish and flawless complexion. This patent-pending elliptical shape makes for an easy application by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with ease. Use the pointed tip to gentley blend around the eyes and nose and the bottom round part to smooth the face and jawline. It has a suede like texture and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up undetectable. Beauty Blender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free. You can use this sponge dry for full coverage application and use it damp for sheer coverage application. Everyone needs to own at least one. There are many companies that sell similar looking sponges that have the same shape as the Beauty Blender, but they are not the same, they do not leave the same finish on the skin. We recommend you own at least one, you will immediately see the difference in your foundation finish.
