The Beauty Blender is great, isn’t it? That cushiony, springy makeup sponge works wonders at blending makeup, so that it looks seamless and virtually airbrushed. Beautyblenders are known for making foundation undetectable and keeping concealer creaseless, but the blending tools can actually be used for a lot more than beautifying your face. Here are the top beauty blender hacks you should probably try:
If, like me, you wake up after a few hours less sleep than you should have had the night before, and have approximately 10 minutes to get out of the door, you’ll know the struggle of having a puffy, just-woken-up face to deal with. Squeeze your Beauty Blender in some freezing cold water (and I mean as cold as you can tolerate or get your tap to go) and dab over the swollen contours of your face to instantly reduce puffiness and to wake yourself up.
REMOVE DEODORANT STAINS
Use an old blender for this as you won’t want to wipe it over your face afterwards- and buff it into deodorant marks on clothes to get them out.
KEEP HOUSEPLANTS WELL WATERED
If you sneak an old beauty blender into the bottom of a planter, it will soak up excess water when you give your plant a drink. This can prevent roots from rotting in too much moisture, and offers back-up sustenance if you forget to water your greenery.
Say goodbye to unsightly re-growth. Professionals reach for the egg shaped sponge to evenly mask roots in between coloring sessions. Brush strokes can leave streaks, but the bouncy tool blends colour into hairs flawlessly. Remember to reach for shadow pigments as opposed to dyes that can damage the sponge.
Embed flax, radish, or other fast-growing seeds in a damp beauty blender and place it under an inverted glass bowl in a sunny location. Moisten occasionally. Once you notice seedlings, transfer them to soil.
Dip your wet beauty blender into moisturizer or facial oil to revive makeup and add glow. Concentrate on the highest points of your face, mainly cheekbones. You’ll be highlighted sans the sparkle.
Beauty blender has the perfect level of bounciness to double up a stress ball. Keep it handy as you might need it anytime- in your handbag, purse etc.
Choose three colours for your design and swipe a thin layer of each polish in a row onto the sponge. Then, quickly dab the hues on nails to reveal a pretty gradient creation.
SOOTHE AN ACHY TOOTH
Have a toothache, but can’t make it to the dentist yet? Dampen an unused beauty blender with whiskey, vanilla extract, mouthwash, or whatever your preferred numbing agent is and apply it to the tooth.
