Putting A Condom On Your Beauty Blender Is The Foundation Hack You Never Knew You Needed
If we told you to put a condom over your beauty blender before you used it to apply your foundation, you might think we'd finally lost the plot. And you know what? You might actually have a point.
But that's exactly what beauty bloggers are now doing and it's all in the name of the smoothest, lightest and most natural looking foundations application that you've could ever dream of.The idea is essentially to imitate those miraculous silicone makeup applicators - or Silisponges - that kinda look like a chicken fillet and which everyone's been freaking out over thanks to their dreamy blending abilities.
To do so, vlogger Laila Tahri's shared a sneaky hack that involves putting an actual condom over her beauty blender to get essentially the same effect. One thing to bear in mind is that you DEFINITELY want to rinse any lube off your condom before slapping some foundation on your face, so just be careful to fully rinse and pat it dry first.
Then pop your beauty blender inside and VOILA: the smooth latex texture of the condom is apparently a total winner at creating an even application and also stops you wasting any product because instead of sinking into your sponge, any excess foundation just sit on the surface of the condom.
Admittedly the finished look does look pretty great, but it does also involve rubbing a condom on your face so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .
