As you probably know by now, we’ve got a bumper box this December with some seriously gooood goodies in store for our bellas! One of the products we’re most excited to get into your mitts in time for the party season is the Base Maker Pro Beauty Sponge. From our gorgeous pals at MODELROCKS, this squishy, tear-shaped beauty will take your makeup application skills to the next level, with its amazing stippling and blending abilities. We’re talking a foundation finish that looks even, natural and practically airbrushed.
Even though it’s super easy to use, we don’t want to leave any beauty sponge newbies hanging, so we’ve put together a few tips on getting started. Now, who’s excited to ace their base?!
Your Base Maker sponge is designed for use with liquid foundation, and can also be used to apply your liquid bronzer or highlighter. To allow easy, drag-free application and give a radiant, dewy and perfectly blended finish, it needs to be used wet. Before each use wet the sponge thoroughly, then ring out any excess so it’s damp, but not dripping. Note: your sponge will expand when wet.
Bounce, Don’t Rub
Now comes the fun part! Apply a little bit of foundation to the sponge – wetting the sponge means less product is wasted, so you don’t need as much as when using a brush or fingers – then get down to business. Bounce, don’t rub, the sponge against your skin until your foundation is beautifully blended, line-free and flawless.
Work Its Angles
The angled tear-drop shape of MODELROCK’s Base Maker Pro Beauty Sponge allows you to work with the natural contours of your face. We tend to use the rounded edges on our cheeks, then used the angled end for our under-eye area, and around the nostrils.
Keep It Clean
Hands up who washes their makeup brushes after every use? Err, us neither. You do, however, need to keep your Base Maker squeaky clean to avoid bacteria. Thankfully, it’s really easy to remove excess product. Just wash with soap and water, squeezing until the water runs clear. Squeeze out any excess liquid, then leave it to dry. Easy peasy!
