Do you use your Beauty Blender the right way? We asked a pro makeup artist

QUESTION: Did you know you can clean your beauty blender in the microwave?

“I’ve gotta say, a BeautyBlender is one of my favourite makeup tools. I use it on all my clients and on myself but a lot of people are using them completely wrong,” says Head Makeup Artist and National Brow artist for Benefit Cosmetics, Lisa Potter-Dixon .  

“When used correctly, and when paired with great products, a BeautyBlender, in my opinion, will give you the most incredible, flawless looking skin,” says Lisa.

Below, Lisa reveals the ways to maximise your sponge for the best results… Always dampen your blender before use. When the sponge is wet, it only absorbs a small amount of product. The water makes the sponge swell and ensures less makeup waste.  When actually using the blender, put the product on your hand, dip the blender in it, and then bounce the blender onto the skin. Bouncing will give you an even, airbrushed finish.  For more coverage, press the blender into the skin. Don’t rub or drag because that will get you in a whole heap of mess, literally. Clean your BeautyBlender once a week to ensure that product isn’t drying in it and harbouring bacteria.  Avoid using washing up liquid. Many people have copied this tactic after seeing countless social posts but remember, the residue of the liquid is likely to end up on your face even after it’s been thoroughly washed and this can promote breakout. I haven’t found anything better than the official BeautyBlender solid cleanser but if you’re on a budget, a baby shampoo is a softer option than washing up liquid. Simply cover the blender in your cleaning product and rinse and repeat until it looks good as new.  Array ( [0] =>

Where to buy the Beauty Blender in stores?

I don't wanna buy it online. And i know sephora only sells it online. Also, i want a legit beauty blender please! Thank you in advance! :)

Target or Ulta
Maybe CVS and Walgreens

I think Target (Sonia Kashuk) sells them.

The beauty blender? Is it as amazing as everyone says?

I hear great stuff about the beauty blender, but I am still skeptical. Isnt it just another sponge?
