Beauty blender was created without edges in order to eliminate visible lines and streaks. it works by gently bouncing Beautyblender against your face when applying make up. This application technique, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. You use Beutyblender's pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes. Use the round base for foundation and blush on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin. If you have problem skin Beautyblender works to cover blemishes. Use the pointed end and the stipple and twist technique to work make up into depressed areas of the face. The stippling and twisting action feathers out the make up's edges, leaving a perfect finish. Use Beautyblender damp when applying wet/dry make up. The reason for this is that it minimises the Beautyblender's absorption of product so that you use less product each and every application. When Beautyblender is wet it is normal for it to expand to nearly twice its original size. Wash after use and place in the Beautyblender insert pedestal to dry. You can also put Beautyblender in the Beautyblender pouch and toss it in the dryer. Be sure to use an air-dry setting; Beautyblender should not come in contact with extreme heat of any kind.
