Beauty blenders are one of the best tools to apply your makeup. They blend your foundation like a dream, giving you that natural airbrushed look. But let’s get to the difficult part, which is cleaning them regularly. Cleaning makeup tools is the last thing makeup lovers want to do! Using clean makeup sponges is a must unless you’re okay with breakouts and skin infections!
And trust us - getting your blender spotless is so much easier than you think.
Here is a quick 1-0-1 on how to clean your beauty blender like a pro!
Start by placing your beauty blender under running water for 10-15 seconds so that it is soaked.
Prepare a bowl of warm, soapy solution. This will be your cleansing solution. You can use a baby shampoo or a sponge cleanser as well. Make sure you use lukewarm water while preparing the solution as it works more effectively in cleaning your makeup tool.
Soak your blender in the cleansing solution for 20-25 minutes. This is the most crucial step while cleaning your sponge. When you soak your sponge in the solution, the dirt and bacteria get broken down and it becomes easier for you to clean it. Notice that the solution begins to change color and become brownish-orange.
Next, gently massage your sponge and get rid of any extra dirt particles visible to you. You can take some more cleansing shampoo if required.
Squeeze the sponge with a soft hand to get rid of the excess dirty water. Repeat step 4 and 5 until you get clean water after squeezing the sponge.
Finally, rinse your sponge with clean water. Squeeze out excess water and dry it with a towel. Then, allow it to dry completely in a clean, well-ventilated area.
Pretty simple, isn’t it?
