A Guide to Blending Sponges—How to Use Each One

Makeup puffs, cosmetic sponges, foundation blenders—with so many shapes and purposes, how’s a girl to know whether she’s using the right tool to get the job done?

To settle this beauty quandary once and for all, L’Oréal Paris is introducing Infallible Blend Artist Blenders—three colorful and artfully shaped makeup sponges designed for flawless application of foundation, concealer and contour makeup. We’re talking effortless blending every time.

To see these blenders in action before they hit the shelves in January 2017, check out our short video tutorials below!

 

Foundation Blender

Specially designed to apply foundation, the Foundation Blender features both a pointed and rounded surface for expert blending. The pointed tip blends foundation into smaller, hard-to-reach areas like the corners around your nose and under-eye area, while the rounded surface blends foundation onto larger areas of the face such as your cheeks, forehead and chin.

#ProTip: For smooth, uniform application, use dabbing and rolling motions to blend foundation onto skin.

Concealer Blender

Need to conceal dark circles or highlight your brown bone? The Concealer Blender makes applying concealer to hard-to-reach areas like the inner corners of your eyes, brow bone and the sides of your nose a cinch.

#ProTip: Use quick dabbing and rolling motions to blend out concealer.

Contour Blender

The Contour Blender is designed to create sculpted and defined looks with cream or liquid contour products. The pointed tip is used to draw contour lines along the hollows of your cheekbones, jawline and sides of your nose, while the curved surface blends lines for a sculpted effect. To highlight, apply a cream or liquid highlighter to forehead, tops of cheekbones and the bridge of your nose, and with the flat surface of the blender, use dabbing and rolling motions to blend out and highlight.

#ProTip: With the curved surface of the blender use rolling motions to blend out contour lines.
