Less usage of products: We invariably end up taking too much product when using our hands or a brush. However, with a damp beauty blender, the product absorbs less foundation and leads to better coverage. In fact, it really helps you to get an airbrushed finish since the dampness acts as a priming base.

Helps fix makeup that is too OTT: The thing about makeup is, if you begin right, it will end right. But, there are no such guarantees in life, leave alone makeup! On days when your eyebrows are a little too pigmented and look like pasted on, use your beauty blender to soften the pigment. This will take away the excess product and give you softer and fuller brows.

Helps control oil: On super oily days, your beauty blender will come to your rescue. The blender works great when it comes to blotting away the excess shine on your face, especially when you do not have blotting paper, without budging your makeup.

Helps remove flaky skin: Dry skin types know how our faces look no less than a Sahara desert when we apply makeup on dry skin. There’s flakes of skin on our nose and forehead, which is not an enticing sight. Take your beauty blender and dip it carefully in a facial oil or an essential oil and dab it on the surface where your skin is getting flaky. This renders them invisible.

Gives blush a seamless finish: If you are someone who is big on cream or liquid products, you know how important this makeup tool is. Applying your cream or liquid-based products with a beauty sponge, takes your beauty game quite a few notches above. We say this because it provides a natural finish, in turn making your skin look youthful.
