The make-up blender
The blender is a polyurethane sponge, characterised by a teardrop shape with a cross cut for greater precision. It ensures even application and a perfect, even finish. Made of hypoallergenic material, totally latex-free, it is ideal for even the most sensitive skin.
It is often preferred to brushes because of its practicality and compact size, allowing you to take it anywhere and make quick touch-ups.
Depending on the desired effect, the beauty blender can be used wet or dry. If you want to increase the coverage of a foundation, we recommend using it dry and tapping the product onto the face. If you want to make a foundation less opaque or more even, simply moisten the blender slightly.
As mentioned above, brushes provide greater coverage but there is no one type of brush and not all brushes have the same final effect. This is why it is essential to know their characteristics in order to be able to choose our favourites.
