Hi everyone!! I hope everyone is having a good week so far! Ready for the weekend!? I am super excited because next week we’re going away for a few days, a much needed vacation!! Ok, enough rambling, let’s get to business!! Ever had a foundation you love and then you decide to blend it with a tool totally different than what you’re used to? Well, I know I have and I’ve been pleased and dissapointed at times. For example, I love blending my foundations with a dampened beauty sponge, no matter what type of foundation I use, I like to use a sponge! I figured I’d put one of my beauty sponges and brush to the test to blend out my foundation!
This will be a super short, to the point comparison of the two blending techniques! Let’s get started!
I used the Milk Makeup foundation that I received it from Influenster complementary for testing purposes. On the pictures below you’ll see whether there is a big difference in the each tool performs. For starters, I feel that when I use a dampened beauty sponge my foundation looks more flawless, soft and definitely works great for my dry skin. I feel like when I blend with it, it almost helps keep the foundation from sticking to any dry patches I might have lingering.
This is the sponge I used to blend on my right side. It’s a Morphe Beauty Sponge. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel that the foundation looks more seamlessly blended with the sponge (see pictures below).
Now, the brush, I used the Morphe Y6. This is a great brush, but I just prefer not using it for my foundation. And yes, I have used it in the past, but I ended up beating my face with the sponge too lol. Here’s the thing, I feel when you have dry skin and have some dry patches, the brush seems to make those patches raise or flake for lack of a better word. It does blend well, but I feel it doesn’t do dry skin any favors as far as having a flawless, smooth finish. While the brush is made to buff out liquid or powder foundations, I don’t feel it works well for dry skin with patchy areas like mine.
Here are the pictures side by side of how my face looks. I know it may seem like there’s no difference, but if you saw it in real life, you can see a patch on my forehead that looks terrible. I am also, however, taking in consideration the foundation, the foundation could just be doing that, but again, I’ve tried the brush before with a foundation geared toward my skin type and this still happens. 🤷🏻♀️
What do you guys think? Do you see the difference? I do lol, but maybe it’s just me! Do you guys have a preference when it comes to blending techniques? Do share! I love getting your comments!!
Please don’t forget to follow and share this post with your friends! I truly appreciate it very much!
Love you guys!
