Up until the beautyblender came along, all I used were foundation brushes and my fingers (I didn’t like the flat make-up sponges available). But since I discovered this little tool, I haven’t looked back. Shaped like an egg, it lets you get into difficult-to-reach areas such as the sides of the nose, and it blends like no other tool I have ever used before. It’s very soft on the skin and doesn’t absorb product, so you don’t have any wasting. If you look after it and clean it regularly, it lasts a really long time too. It’s on every beauty editor’s must-have list!
