Not every beauty blender is such a miracle in make up land
You might not know this about me but I’m a real make up junkie. I love everything about make up, brushes, new techniques, color palettes and so on. So when there’s a new product I really want to try it out as well. Though not always can I afford to buy the original product. Choosing the cheaper alternative is not always the right way to go.
A while ago I bought a beauty blender from Primark, thinking that it wouldn’t make a different where I buy it. I wanted to try it and this was cheap. What’s a beauty blender? It’s a little cone shaped sponge with which you can apply make up on your face. Both liquid make up as well as powders, but padding it into the face for a smoother effect. Who doesn’t want that? To be honest, I didn’t really like it. My arms were killing me from all that padding. I noticed I was using my old brushes again.
Recently there was a discount on all real techniques products. The brush I wanted to buy wasn’t what I expected so I decided to go for a beauty blender with a straight angle. I’ve read some blogs where the girls were very entend about this brand, so I thought I give it one more try. And yes, it does make a difference. No tired arms, it blends much better and my make up didn’t disappear into the blender. I use the smaller top part for blending and contouring. The flat backside I’m using to apply powders.

Of course I have made a video of the first time I used my new Real Techniques beauty blender which will be online soon. I really like the blender, it does make a different which one you use. I’ve used it before for my foundation and concealer but recently I’ve also been using it for powders as well. Keep you posted!
tip clean the beauty blender with water and some hand soap. Once the water is no longer brown you’re ready. Give it a good squeeze and it’s ready to use.
