I feel that using the right tools for a job is always going to get you a better result and with make-up this also holds true.
I usually use a brush to apply my foundation but after watching a few make up tutorials on YouTube with my favorite sisters Sam and Nick from Pixiwoo, I decided to try out the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
I use a lot of the Real Technique brushes and find them really good quality and excellent value for money. The sponge is also very reasonably priced compared to other similar products on the market such as the Beauty Blender.
The Miracle Complexion Sponge is a firm sponge shaped like a tear drop with one flat side. It promises easy expert application and a flawless finish. Looking at this little pink sponge I was a little dubious.
HOW TO USE IT:
Squirt a small bit of foundation on the top of your hand and then dab the sponge (dampen it first) on the flat side, into
the foundation and then stipple it onto your face. Do it in a constant patting motion all over, adding more foundation to the sponge as and where you need it.
I have to say, I didn’t use much foundation and I actually DID look flawless. You couldn’t really see that I was wearing foundation, it just looked like real skin but flawless real skin. I was blown away.
Not only can you use it for foundation but also to apply and smooth out concealer. With Spring coming I also like use a cream blush for a more dewy look and you can use the Miracle Complexion Sponge for that application too.
It is truly a multi-tasking beauty tool that is a must have.
They are reusable which is handy. After about two applications I just wash it out with a little shampoo and it is good to go again.
Currently you can purchase Real Techniques products at Priceline but their range can be limited. You can also try online as you may have more luck finding what you need.
