Beauty Blender – how to use it?
Before applying any product onto your face, first, moist the beauty blender with water and wait a few seconds until it absorbs it. Make sure it’s thoroughly saturated and gently squeeze the sponge to get rid of excess water. Then, pour the cosmetic onto the back of your hand, dab the sponge into the product. Next, bounce it to gently stipple or press the makeup into the skin for a flawless finish (keep doing it until all of the makeup is evenly blended).

It is good to wash it not only for hygienic reasons but also for the sake of its durability – the applicator intended for applying the makeup will serve longer if it is regularly cleaned. To do this, prepare a bowl of water and fill it with the liquid for cleaning the makeup accessories. Drench the sponge for about 20 minutes, then drain it and repeat the action using clean water.
