Nowadays Beauty Blender is the most popular and useful brush.  It removes excess makeup without leaving any traces. Once the makeup is dotted onto your skin, use the damp sponge over the product to gently spread it into the skin. Beauty Blender is not like other Makeup Sponges, it is hydrophilic which means it is designed to absorb water. Before using it, wet the Beauty Blender, it soaks up the water so there’s no room left in it to absorb your foundation and use it on your skin.

Why is the Beauty Blender Brushes best?

  • Stipple, don’t rub

  • Erase your mistakes

  • Perfect your self-tanner
