|Sponges on Aug 08, 2014 @ 10:06 pm|
I'm sure you've already heard of the Beauty Blender, which practically every beauty blogger or professional uses. It's amazing and makes all your face makeup blend like a dream, but I realize that it's not economically feasible for everyone. I'd recommend the dupe that Real Techniques has. They're not quite as amazing as the BB, but they do the job well and help everything look natural and seamless for less than 1/3 the price. Sephora also carries some Sephora brand BB sponge dupes in a few shapes and varieties, but these run slightly more expensive than Real Techniques (still less than 1/2 the price of a BB, though). Another tip that I have is to prime your skin with a tone correcting primer since you're worried about redness. Green-hued ones work best, and Smashbox has a great one, but NYX, L'Oreal, and elf all carry some equally effective green primers. Also, invest in a good concealer, and always make sure to apply the concealer AFTER the foundation, as this helps you determine where you really need to conceal without wasting product. Hope I helped!

Beauty blender is awesome, but quite expensive for just a sponge! At my local drugstores I've found knock off that work just as well for $6. Just make sure you wash it frequently to avoid smearing around bacteria on your face. Also, a foundation brush )which you can usually get a good one for under $18) works well to apply without streaks and look really professional. As for the redness, regular concealer and foundation do not work for me. You need to get a green based concealer (sounds weird but works wonders). You'll be able to find it in the cosmetic sections of any drugstore. Mabeyline carries a lipstick style one for cheap.

What I find helps me is starting off small and then building it up.
BB creams are also helpful in the blending category, they blend like a dream because they are practically lotions. Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB cream is the one I use because it also provides SPF as well as a wide range of skin tones. It's inexpensive and you can find it in practically any drugstore.
You can also just dab on concealor on the spots that you want and then blend those out versus applying layers of foundation on because that would defs make it look cake-y!
Finishing off with powder also helps make your makeup look seamless (it also helps with keeping your hard work on your face throughout the day!)
Hope this helps :)

Liquid foundation is the easiest to blend (in my opinion). Apply it with a foundation brush bit by bit i.e. your nose, forehead, chin... etc. It'll all come together easily. :) As for cost, most drug store brands have liquid foundation and brushes are also easily found at drug stores for reasonable costs.
