Back in the day, when I was beauty blogging somewhat professionally, I used to do something called “Beauty Tip of the Week“.
It was one of the most fun posts I’d write and I actually miss writing them, so… here we are once again!
And while some tips may seem familiar (but I’ve updated them for right now), most of them will be brand new – since I’ve become a makeup artist, I am playing and learning even more about makeup and beauty products, and it’s crazy how much I thought I knew, but really don’t. So I have plenty to share.
But for right now? Here’s a beauty tip that I can’t recommend enough, and it has to do with foundation and your trusty makeup sponge.
Because unless you’ve found a foundation made from heaven, getting a perfectly smooth application straight from the pot, especially with those that are full-coverage foundations, are not the easiest.
And if you’re not into brushes or using your finger tips to apply your foundation, then you may know that a tiny wedge cosmetic sponge is a makeup artist secret, and probably one of the easiest – and best – ways to apply foundation. But an even better way to get a truly smooth application, though, is this little secret: dampen the sponge.
Yep, that’s right, good ole water will do wonders! Simply use a slightly damp, wet makeup sponge when applying your foundation. A wet makeup sponge will allow for a smoother application, but not only that – it will get into ever little nook and cranny for complete coverage on the skin, not to mention, it will even soften fine lines and wrinkles.
What do you think? Have you tried using a wet makeup sponge for makeup application? Or will you be trying it now?
