A Valuable Makeup Tip That Will Save You Money When Using Sponges Over Brushes!

The choice of a sea sponge, non-latex round or beauty blender can make a difference in your look and wallet.

Some of you may have a preference for trusting your application of liquid foundation to makeup brushes or fingers.  Still others feel that a sponge does a better job for blending and the final appearance. To be honest, I use them all at times while getting ready because they each help me differently through the process like what I have learned when using sponges.

My first experience with makeup sponges was using a small sea sponge.  These will work with liquid foundation for easy blending into your skin, but do cause you to waste more than you think.  This does not mean that I think you should stop using makeup sponges, but only suggest that you may want to switch. 

A beauty blender or disposable latex makeup sponges or makeup wedges will save you money, more so if you buy the non-latex variety, which also can be more sanitary due to antimicrobial foam construction. This type of sponge is non-porous and incapable of absorbing foundation like a sea sponge so you don’t go through nearly as much foundation.

Another advantage of changing over to a beauty blender or a makeup wedge is how much more helpful they are for covering wrinkles.  After all, they have a line that comes in handy over a round sea sponge when trying to fill it in.  

What I do is aim the foundation-ready wedge or blender to line up with the wrinkle, start at the bottom and gently pat in is more precise delivery for a better hidden wrinkle than overlapping with a round sponge.

Hopefully, this makeup tip will prevent you from making the same mistake so you can 
be happier with your makeup application and way to stretch your foundation.
