Listen, if you tried this iconic sponge and were not impressed, I'm almost certain you were using it incorrectly. Because it is actually magical. Unlike dry make-up sponges, which absorb too much product and leave you uneven, the Beautyblender is designed to be used wet. Simply saturate under running water, squeeze out the excess until it is damp, pat the fat end of the sponge lightly in your foundation (or concealer, BB cream, etc.) and iron it over your face for a seamless, airbrush-finish.

These baby blenders are a fraction of the size of an average foundations punch, so you can get in every corner and crack on your face without confusing the rest of your make-up.
