15 Best Makeup Sponges & Beauty Blenders For Flawless Foundation Photo: Getty15 Best Makeup Sponges & Beauty Blenders For Flawless Foundation Alice Kelly Writer Self Aug 3, 2020, 09:30 EDT  Few internet trends disturb me more than the popular videos of people using household items to apply their foundation. From the backs of smartphones to tampons, I’ve seen it all — and I never want to see it again.  For crying out loud, just get yourself a decent makeup sponge!  They’re easy to use, will apply your foundation flawlessly, and, best of all, they’re hygienic. Many people prefer using a damp sponge over a foundation brush to apply a base, because they give a glowy, dewy finish and won’t cake your face.   That being said, not all makeup sponges and beauty blenders do their job equally. Some absorb far too much product, some are stiff and uncomfortable to use, and some just straight-up fall apart after a couple of uses.   If you want highly rated, effective makeup sponges, check out these beauty blenders to apply your foundation. RELATED: 15 Best Skincare Fridges For Preserving Your Beauty Products  1.
