More than one way to use this ingenious beauty tool
By Elizabeth Lee
Beauty junkies know and love the ubiquitous pink sponge that’s made makeup application a breeze. Thanks to its unique shape, using the Beautyblender to apply liquid foundation to hard-to-reach areas of the face is no longer a daily morning challenge.
Now, the Internet has gone gaga over the alternative use of this useful beauty tool.
We’ve seen it used to create ombré nails and even beautiful watercolour eyeshadow, but UK-based hairstylist Jamie Stevens (@jamiestevens7) has taken it a notch higher with this experiment.
To create a soft look when colouring his client’s hair, he sliced the beautyblender into half (yes, we can hear your audible gasps), and applied the dye using a technique that is reminiscent of strobing.
