Happy Friday beauties! Today let’s talk about the hottest trend on the block: beauty sponges. You might remember the days when a beauty sponge simply meant a cheap white wedge you used to try and fix foundation mishaps. Thankfully, those days are as gone as frizzy perms and shiny G-string leotards in the gym. Beauty sponges have come a long way – and we’re here to tell you all about what they all do and why they are a must-have in your makeup kit.
Miracle Complexion Sponge
Sponges can be used for anything from foundation and concealer application to applying creams, contouring and blending. The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is super versatile with 3 uses in 1. The rounded sides can be used to blend large areas of the face using a ‘stippling’ motion; the tip is for covering blemishes and imperfections, while the flat edge is perfect for contouring around the eyes and nose. Who knew a makeup sponge could be so versatile?
Another great tip is that these sponges can be used with both wet and dry makeup, or used damp or dry for different coverage results. Dry = full coverage and Damp = dewy, sheer coverage.
Miracle Sculpting Sponge
The Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge is specifically designed to help create shadows or highlight your favourite facial features. Again, it can be used damp to create a dewy glow, or dry to finish with a full coverage. Plus, every beauty needs a funky sponge in her collection and this one definitely nails it! Highlight and contour away …
Miracle Complexion Mini Eraser Sponges
What they appear to lack in size, they make up for in awesomeness. Do you ever look in the mirror throughout the day and realise your mascara has left lash traces on your face? Or finished your eye-look only to realise you have as much shadow colour off your eyes as on? We know we have! The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Mini Eraser Sponge is here to save the day. It can be used to erase any makeup mishaps from mascara smudges and over applied shadow to brow product fallout and liner (eye or lip) gone wrong. Double duty: We use one for our concealer and the other as an eraser. Now for the highlight: they are small enough to take everywhere you go.
