What Is Beauty Blender? 

Beauty Blender

A beauty blender is a tool to help you spread foundation on your skin. Nowadays, makeup sponges are manufactured with more durability, and can be used for several months (durability depends on whether you clean the sponge properly or not). Their ability to absorb will help absorb excess cosmetics so you will not experience the situation of spreading too much cream on the skin.

The Beauty Blender is a popular makeup tool that can be used for a variety of tasks, such as applying foundation, concealer, and powder. It is designed to give you a streak-free and flawless finish. The Beauty Blender is made from a soft material that is gentle on the skin and can be used wet or dry.

How To Clean Beauty Blender Vs Brush 

Beauty Blender Vs Brush 2

Beauty Blender

The best way to remove dirt from a makeup sponge is to clean it after each use or at least once a month. Just like mascara and toothbrushes, makeup sponges need to be replaced every three months.

Used makeup sponges can quickly become a breeding ground for dirt and bacteria. Therefore, proper maintenance is very important. Proper and regular cleaning not only ensures germs stay away from your skin, but also prolongs the shelf life of your makeup sponge.

Although there are many cleansers on the market specifically for cleaning makeup sponges, regular soap and warm water will help clean effectively.

You can use a daily cleanser or shampoo to clean makeup sponge. Just put a small amount in the palm of your hand and gently rub it on the makeup sponge, add a little water and apply until it forms a lather. Continue rinsing thoroughly under warm running water. Squeeze out the water and let it dry completely before putting it back in your makeup bag or container.

For a deeper clean, mix half a teaspoon of olive oil with a teaspoon of soap in a small bowl. Press the makeup sponge into the mixture, allowing it to absorb the solution. Then, rinse thoroughly under warm running water until the mixture and dirt are gone.

Using a makeup sponge helps you perform makeup steps faster and easier. If you do not have the habit of using a makeup sponge, try to experience and feel it.

Beauty Brush

During use, the makeup brush will quickly get dirty. Not only does it accumulate a lot of cosmetic residue such as powder, cream, eye color, makeup brush is also a place dirty by dust, sebum, and dead cells. Therefore, regular cleaning of makeup brushes is essential. Cleaning the brush will help limit the risk of acne caused by bacteria accumulation, help the process of using the brush better and prolong the life of the product.

For brushes using powdered cosmetics such as blush brush, powder brush: clean 1-2 times/week.

For liquid foundation, concealer or eyeshadow brushes: clean daily. Because the liquid texture of the product makes the bristles easy to stick, it contains many bacteria and dirt.

For makeup sponges: daily cleaning. Because similar to a foundation brush, the sponge has absorbent, damp properties that will create a suitable environment for bacteria to grow.

Step 1. Wet the bristles

Rinse the bristles of your makeup brushes under warm running water. Avoid getting water on the handle. This will loosen the glue bonded to the metal clip, causing the bristles to fall out and easily damage the brush.

Step 2. Gently massage in soap

Put a small amount of soap on the palm of your hand and swirl the brush all over the palm in a gentle circular motion. Make sure the entire bristles of the brush are soaked with soap. Besides, you can also put soap on the brush, rotate the brush gently to clean the makeup brush.

Step 3. Rinse the brush with water

After the bristles have been cleaned with soap, rinse the brush with warm water until the water is clear. If you find that the water is still cloudy, does not drain away the cosmetic residue, you can repeat steps 1 – 2. Don’t forget to let the water run into the body of the makeup brush.

Step 4. Squeeze out the water

Use your fingers to gently stroke the bristles to squeeze out excess water and reshape the bristles to their original shape. Make sure you use gentle hand pressure, stroking too hard will break the bristles and damage the makeup brush.

Step 5. Let dry

Place the drained makeup brush on a towel or paper towel to dry naturally. Just overnight, you can use the brush again the next morning.

When Do You Need To Use Beauty Blender Vs Brush?

Beauty Blender Vs Brush 3

Beauty Brush 

The makeup brush helps the foundation to be smoother and more even. Most makeup artists own at least one brush to apply foundation. Tiny fine hairs can move to many areas of the skin, helping the foundation to not be patchy. There are many different types of makeup brushes. Natural bristle brushes often hold a better base than synthetic brushes. However, when using liquid foundation, you should use a synthetic brush to make it easier to blend.

The way to apply makeup with a brush can make many girls difficult. This method requires meticulous techniques to spread evenly, not patchy on the face. According to makeup experts, using a makeup brush is a beauty tip to create a thin, smooth foundation. You should regularly clean your makeup brushes at least once a week and store them in a cool place. When carrying a brush on a trip, it’s best to put it in a zip bag to keep it out of dust. If you are too busy and do not have time to clean your brushes regularly, you should buy 3-4 brushes to use alternately.

Beauty Blender

This is a makeup style that is suitable for girls who have oily or combination skin. This skin type often secretes oil in the T-zone. Therefore, the method of applying foundation with a sponge prevents peeling and moldy skin. What’s more, this makeup method keeps the foundation in place, without causing the oil to spread elsewhere. There are two common types of makeup sponges: flat sponges and round teardrop sponges. Depending on the purpose of use, you should choose the type of foam that is right for you.

Using different makeup tools, combining with different cosmetics is really a small pleasure you can try every day if you are a true beauty fanatic. Of course there will be successful experiments and…sparkling experiments. But after a few tests, you’re sure to find a way to upgrade your beautifier.

Makeup blender helps you to spread makeup professionally. The brushes help focus on small details on the face. Each technique will have its own advantages and is suitable for different types of cosmetics.

So which option will be the most perfect, when all of the above tools include both advantages and disadvantages? The trick is to combine them all! First, you use your hands to spread the foundation for an even skin tone. Then you use the blender to spread the foundation thin and even more. Finally, use the brush again, just to make the foundation stick more tightly to the skin, and remove the excess foundation. 

So your skin has achieved smooth, even color as desired without having to wear a mask that is too thick.

The most important thing to remember is, your face needs to be well moisturized and healthy. That is the prerequisite for owning a perfect makeup layer!


There is no definitive answer as to whether a Beauty blender vs brush is better for your makeup look. It really depends on what you are going for in terms of results. 

A beauty blender can give you a more natural look, while a Beauty brush can give you a more polished look.  It all comes down to personal preference and what works best for you. If you want more coverage, a beauty blender is the better option. If you want a more airbrushed look, go with a brush. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and what works best for you.
