Pick of the week: Beautyblender

November 25, 2009

We have something in common with celebrities like Beyonce, P. Diddy and Alicia Silverstone: We love the Beauty Blender and you will too.

The pink sponge is by the far the most amazing beauty tool I have been introduced to. It really does deserve all the hype, and the cute packaging has been getting the attention of many. With her product, Rea Ann Silva shares the secret of how the beauty blender helps applying make-up so effortless.

Before actually using the egg shaped sponge, I took a look at a few tutorials. The lessons were well worth it. Moistening the egg causes it to expand and have a bounce effect when dabbed on the skin to give it a non-streak finish. The dampness allows the make-up to actually stay on the skin. I thought it would only work with creamy products, which I am not fond of. The blender is phenomenal and works with blush, bronzer and loose powder.

So why the egg shape? The cornered end makes it so much easier to apply concealer while the rounded edge helps blend make-up into the jaw line and cheeks with a barely there finish. Compared to my brushes which are my absolute favorites for applying make-up, the beauty blender was able to do so much more in less amount of time. The beauty blender should be a part of you make-up application process. You will not regret it. The sponge is re-washable. It comes with its very own cleansing soap and can be sent back to the company to be recycled – not bad for taking care of the earth and staying beautiful at the same time.

Beauty Blender. Available at Ricky’s, Sephora or $20- $35

Beautyblender: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

November 23, 2009

Spoiled Pretty  (

Let me speak frankly. If you’re applying your foundation with anything but the Beautyblendersponge, you’re doing it wrong. Look…I don’t mean to put you on blast, but I’m here to give it to you straight. And when I tell you that Beautyblender is, hands down, the best foundation applicator, I speak the truth.

The point of foundation is to fool the eye of the beholder into thinking you were blessed with a flawless complexion. But if you’re applying it incorrectly, or with inferior tools, you just look like you’re wearing a makeup mask. And who wants that? Nobody, that’s who. The difference between foundation that looks like foundation and foundation that looks like skin is Beautyblender.

Since I was introduced to Beautyblender in 2007, we have been in a monogamous relationship. It is the only tool I use to apply my foundation. Invented by Hollywood makeup artists, this sponge leaves you with a professional finish. Applying makeup with fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges can waste makeup and can leave visible streaks. Beautyblender’s elliptical shape makes allows you to access hard-to-reach areas with ease. Its suede-like texture repels product, so your foundation actually ends up on your face – rather than absorbed by the sponge. And its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your makeup dazzling and undetectable.

I even use it to apply my concealer and cream blushes. And if you have problem skin, I can’t recommend anything better for magically disguising blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Beautyblender is reusable (perfect for those green gals), latex-free, non-allergenic, and odor free…and makes a great holiday gift.

Give your beauty-loving BFF the gift of perfect skin with the Hot Pink Holiday Kit, which includes Beautyblender and 3 oz Blendercleanser in an organza drawstring carry pouch….tagged for gift giving!

You know who is also a fan of Beautyblender? My pal, and Celebrity Makeup Artist, Mario Dedivanovic. Watch the Beautyblender in action, as Mario makes up the beautiful face of his muse, Kim Kardashian.

Beautyblender + cleanser Duo Pack

I love finding cool makeup tools that make application easier. And when its good for the environment? Well, that’s even better! So of course I LOVE the Beautyblender makeup sponge (blender and cleanser is $34.95).

The website explains, “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.”

The  pre=”The “>Beautylender is an egg-shaped (elliptical), velvety sponge that because of the shape, blends with out streaking. Stippling it around the face creates a smooth surface and even helps my pores seem smaller. The pointed side is for around eyes, mouth and nose and the base is for broader areas like forehead, cheeks and chin.

The really cool think about this sponge is that it is reusable. Use it, then wash it with the Blendercleanser. This will keep the skin healthy and extend the life of the sponge. “Blendercleanser is a lightly lavender-scented cleanser that’s free of dyes and skin irritants. It’s soothing soy-based, low-suds formula breaks down rapidly, making it earth-friendly and fun to use. Soy has the added benefit of being one of nature’s finest moisturizers, so by all means, clean up with class and do it often.”

I clean it after each use by applying a small amount to the soiled areas of the Beautyblender. I lather, then rinse. When it is wet, it is twice the normal size. I then place it on the pedestal on the top of the cleanser and let it air dry. Even if you use it a little wet, it still works great!

Weekly Must-Have: The Beautyblender

November 14, 2009


There isn’t a woman in the world who doesn’t strive for a poreless complexion. If she claims she could care less, she is lying.

While genetics play a crucial factor in who gets blessed with beautiful skin, many of us are forced to fake it.

But how?

Apparently, it’s all about the sponge — the makeup sponge.

Rea Ann Silva
and Veronica Lorenz are two highly sought-after celebrity makeup artists. They met on the sets at Paramount Studios in Hollywood and, after years of being consulted by their celeb clients about achieving the flawless finish at home, the two ladies decided to let the cat out of the bag. Up to this point, makeup artists had been cutting triangular sponges into round, edgeless shapes to achieve a more seamless blend.

Not anymore.

Rea Ann and Veronica decided to put their collective beauty expertise together and thus, Beautyblender was born. This bubble gum pink elliptically-shaped sponge with rounded curves (one side has a large tip, the other is a small tip) is the go-to product for an even and clean makeup application. And the buck doesn’t stop there.

Beautyblender isn’t merely just a foundation sponge. It’s multifunctional — like a friend with benefits. Use it to apply self tanning lotion without the streaks and acne spot treatments or create that smokey eye effect by smudging shadows and liner with the smaller tip end. Under eye circles? No problem, the smaller tipped side will take care of that while the round side effortlessly and flawlessly pats on foundation AND powder!

Everyone, from Gwen Stefani and Beyonce to Sela Ward and Tyra Banks, is a fan of the cult-favorite, Beautyblender. And why? Well, celebrity stature doesn’t ensure anyone a flawless complexion. Pimples and wrinkles don’t discriminate. I’m officially obsessed.
