Updated Foundation Routine (BeautyBlender)


So during my last skincare haul video, I mentioned the BeautyBlender sponge makeup applicator at some length. I had gone to the store looking for a generic makeup-removing facial cleanser to clean it with which then inspired the whole change in my skincare routine.

Which then inspired a long ramble in that video about my love for the BeautyBlender...

So as promised in that video, here is my updated foundation routine using this product.


Here are some BeautyBlender basics to remember:
-Always use the sponge damp. It expands to almost twice it's size and makes it much softer and springy..er. :) Dampening it really is what makes the product worthwhile and keeps it from soaking up (and wasting) most of your foundation like most other sponges.
-Apply your foundation using bouncy motions. (I demo this in the video)
-Clean it every 3 or 4 times using a gentle cleanser.

BeautyBlenders are available at sephora.com.

  6. I am buying a beautyblender and the MUFE Foundation you use tomorrow... I have the MUFE HD Foundation but it makes me way to shiny! Let's just hope it doesn't make me break out! Love your videos.

  7. I watched the video but wanted to ask, do you think it lasts a long time without getting too germ-y ( even with regular washings) I don't want to pay 20 dollars for a short-term sponge? Thanks :)

  8. Don't buy the beauty blender....instead buy the Sonya Kashuk one from target...I have both and they work the same and the one at target costs $9.99

  10. I think I kind of need a Beauty Blender now! I'm a sponge girl when it comes to foundation, so it would be perfect for me I think.

  11. I love the idea of this sponge - there's a similar Cosmo one in the UK but I wonder if it performs the same?

  16. Great video! So glad you mentioned that you didn't love the Sonia Kashuk sponge at Target, because I was going to ask you that exact question. Now I'll be making a trip to Sephora to get the Beauty Blender...glad it's chic week & that I can get 15% off.

  19. do you think the blender by sonia kashuk is comparable to this one?

  20. I have a generic one that I bought at Ulta and have no luck with it. I wonder if there is a texture difference because the two are totally shaped differently.

  21. Hi Tiffany, I'd like to know, can the beauty blender be used for powder foundations?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just ordered one today. Thanks for the review. I was skeptical about the beauty blender sponge until your review.

    ReplyDelete
  23. but if i like my foudation's full coverage u'd say it would the better to apply with my foundation brush instead? or the beauty blender just looks natural and yet mantains the coverage?

    love ur videos!

    kisses

  24. I'm so tempted to buy the beauty blender...I just can't decide if I should or not.

  25. Hey girl! Do you use the same camera for your pictures are you do for recording? I'm a fellow beauty blogger and I realized I need a new camera so I can really improve my picture quality and your pictures are always really great!

  27. Tiffany, dear, thank you SO much for this tutorial. I had been eyeballing the Beauty Blender for awhile, but never bought it. Seeing you demonstrate it with the Mat Velvet + just sealed the deal. I now use both because of your recommendations. Thanks so much!

  30. I just added this to my routine and the difference is AMAZING! Thank you for the tip!

  31. You go through the names of the products so fast! Is there anywhere you list all the products you used outside of the video? I'm new here and I can't watch a lot of the videos because of my internet usage agreement :( I would love to know if there is a place I can see all the product info :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I should correct my last comment. I see most of your tutorial videos have a list of products used at the top. I'm wondering what the blush used in this tutorial specifically was.

    I ordered the blender and the tight lining product you recommended pretty much immediately, I'm a bit of a makeup junkie! Thanks!

  34. I had one and it worked excellent. I wanted to get a new one but it's quite costly so I opted for a cheaper choice (http://winstoniastore.com/makeup-blender-sponge-foundation-applicator.html), it works as good as BeautyBlender's.

  35. Great tutorial, I like the way you're finish looks so natural and not made up as you get when applied with a foundation brush.
