How to Choose a Makeup Sponge in the Philippines – Buying Guide

Ever since the Original Beauty Blender (that iconic neon pink egg-shaped sponge) was brought to fame, several dupes have been spotted out in the market. They may look the same, but it doesn’t mean they perform as well. Let’s check out what we need to know before buying a makeup sponge.

Consider the Shape and Function of the Makeup Sponge

Consider the Shape and Function of the Makeup Sponge
Makeup sponges come in an array of different shapes and sizes, each having a specific purpose. Some are thin, some are flat, some are round, and some have edges. Thin sponges are better for travel, as they’re easier to store into your makeup bag. Rounder, egg-shaped sponges are bulkier; and therefore better for at-home use.
Sponges designed with corners and edges help you reach the corners of our face that we just can’t seem to do with regular round ones. But trimming your current sponge could also fix that problem, that is, if you don’t mind doing it. Teardrop-shaped sponges, on the other hand, are more versatile. They have both a pointy edge and round bottom, which makes makeup application a breeze.

Choose the Material of Your Makeup Sponge Carefully

Choose the Material of Your Makeup Sponge Carefully
What your makeup sponge is made of is more important than you think. Most makeup sponges are made of latex or hydrophilic polyurethane, so people who are allergic to latex should opt for latex-free makeup sponges. Hydrophilic polyurethane sponges are usually latex-free and are more environmentally-friendly.
Also, pay attention to how fine the pores are on the sponge; the larger they are, the more likely they are to cause streaks, resulting in an uneven coverage.
Silicon sponges have also made their debut recently. They’re easier to clean, but they don’t necessarily give you a seamless or flawless look. To achieve a nice full coverage, it’s recommended to stick with the traditional sponge.

Choose Between Wet or Dry Type Makeup Sponges

Choose Between Wet or Dry Type Makeup Sponges
Not all sponges are designed to be doused in water before use. Always check the instructions of the product before using it. Makeup sponges designed to be used dry are more suited for powder application, while ones designed to be used wet are more suited for liquid application.
Hydrophilic makeup sponges, which absorb water, are designed to be used wet. You also waste less product because the sponge is already soaked in water, leaving no room for the product to get absorbed.

Wash Your Makeup Sponges After Each Use

Wash Your Makeup Sponges After Each Use
We know this is a tedious task that no one really wants to do everyday, but you need to know how important it is to wash your tools after every use. Every time we use our makeup sponges, dead skin particles, oil, dirt, and who knows what get into those tiny little pores of the sponge–and they stay there, unless of course you wash it.
You wouldn’t want to increase the risk of breakouts and infections, right? Aside from using makeup sponge cleansers, you can also use olive oil and mild liquid soap that you might have lying around your house. Lastly, always wait for it to dry completely before storing it.
Makeup sponges also have a lifespan of three months, so make sure you take note of when you’ll need to replace your dirty old sponge.

Summary

Having the right tools to blend your makeup seamlessly can make or break your overall look. Makeup sponges also come in different shapes and sizes, so you can definitely find one that matches your makeup style.
