Beauty blenders have become a major part of our lives since a pear-shaped object appeared all over our social media. Despite the fact that this simple water droplet simplifies our lives, there are many mistakes you are making while using this applicator!
You’re Not Cleaning Your Beauty Blender Often
Do you clean your beauty blender regularly? Be honest when answering. By leaving your beauty blender out with the product in it, you are allowing bacteria to grow, which will harm your skin, leading to acne.
While a makeup brush should be ideally washed once in 7 days, a beauty blender is not the applicator you can keep unwashed for the same duration of time. A beauty blender should be washed every time you use it.
Not Storing Your Blender Properly
When you plan on carrying your vanity, do you just toss your beauty blender into the pouch? This is not a practice you should continue!
Just like the unwashed product may end up causing bacterial manifestations, tossing the blender into the pouch with other products without a covering will end up causing the same problem.
To avoid this, you should ideally store your beauty blender in an air-tight container or zip lock pouch before shifting it into your vanity pouch.
You’re Using A Dry Beauty Blender
A beauty blender, when purchased, comes in a plastic box, in which the beauty blender is dry. The beauty blender is dry, doesn’t mean you need to use a dry blender always.
You will have to adjust to different types of blenders for different makeup processes. A damp blender is generally used for liquid products while a dry blender is beat suitable for powder-based products.
You need to soak your blender and squeeze out the water before using a damp beauty blender.
You’re Only Limiting Your Beauty Blender To Foundation
While a beauty blender is a great tool for setting your foundation, it is not limited to this step in your makeup routine. A beauty blender can be used to apply blush, contour, or even highlight.
You can use a beauty blender to apply loose powder to your under-eye area just the way you want it with a beauty blender.
Are You Pouring Your Product Directly Onto The Blender?
Pouring your product directly into a beauty blender is not a good idea. If you’re using a liquid foundation, try squeezing a couple of drops on the back of your hand and then dabbing the sponge on top. It makes sure you’re not wasting product and you get a more even layer of coverage.
Are You Swiping Using The Beauty Blender?
How do you apply foundation with your beauty blender? Do you swipe it all across your face? If you do, please stop!
With a beauty blender, you should ideally apply the product using a dab motion. Sweeping the beauty blender over your face will brush off the product from your face while it may aggravate acne on your skin.
You’re Not Using The Appropriate Sized Blenders
Does the market generally have a variety of beauty blender sizes? There’s a reason you find them on counters. A beauty blender is the best applicator to use for areas that are difficult to cover like the edges of your nose or your under-eyes.
