She’s Gotta Have It!

The Beauty of Blending

It is the one beauty rule that never goes out of style: blend! And word on the street is that the new and fabulous way to do so is by using this:
It was a hit at Fashion Week and it is called Beauty Blender. It’s an egg shaped makeup applicator brought to you by celebrity makeup artists Rea Ann Silva and Veronica Lorenz. They developed this sponge because they noticed that the traditional triangular makeup sponges were creating harsh lines because of their straight edges. The Beauty Blender feels like suede on your skin and the curved edges mold perfectly into hard to reach corners and creases and you won’t see harsh lines where your makeup ends with this. It is the perfect tool for blending for those who prefer to use sponges. It’s even nice for those of us that like to use our fingers to apply our foundation because you can use it afterwords as a buffer to blend the edges by your jaw and hairline for a smoother, professional looking finish. You can also dab extra concealer on a blemish or scar using the smaller end.

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.

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 make up’s edges, leaving a perfect finish.

The cleanser pictured below is kinda funky too. I usually wash my brushes/sponges with soap and water, but this just looks cool lol.

Directions for using Blendercleanser: Wet Beautyblender. Apply a dime-sized amount of Blendercleanser to soiled areas of Beautyblender. Work into a lather, rinse, repeat if necessary. Squeeze to remove excess water. Set Beautyblender on insert pedestal to dry.

All in all, its really just important to make sure you blend. It should never look like you are wearing a mask, so by blending your foundation until there are no hard lines at the jaw line, hair line, or in creases by your nose and eyes you achieve a natural look and people will just think you have perfect skin.
