The new foundation craze is in: the beauty blender. A teardrop shaped sponge that blends your foundation to a flawless finish with a point to get all of the hard to reach places. But at around $25 for one, it can get expensive replacing them every three months for sanitary purposes.
I’ve found a cheap alternative that I absolutely LOVE.
The SOHO Blender Sponge is a shameless dupe of the beauty blender, but with two points and at a third of the price. You could be replacing these every week for a month the same price as one beauty blender! (Not that you need to)
Available at Walgreens or, as linked, Drugstore.com, this beauty blender is my go-to for getting airbrushed looking skin. My main routine consists of applying as usual with a foundation brush from BHCosmetics, then blending with this. Since it is a sponge, I don’t recommend just applying the foundation straight from the blender, as it will absorb more product than it transfers.
