Happy Sunday beautiful ladies! Okay, serious question. How many of you apply your foundation with a foundation brush and you struggle with smoothing out a streaky foundation look? Yep. I’ve been there too. While I highly enjoy my pricey antibacterial foundation brushes, I still have trouble with the streaks. It always seems to take more time and effort to smooth out the streaks and create a flawless foundation application. Enter the newest fad, silicone sponge blenders. Today I’m going to tell you all about how I achieve a flawless foundation application with Silicone Makeup Sponge.
So get this, I’m on Amazon one Friday afternoon and I come across the brand Nylea. I see they carry Silicone Makeup Sponge (2 pack). In my head I’m telling myself, wow Cassie. You really want to try this ‘trend’? The breast implant look alike (that’s really what they are being referred as!) applicator to apply your foundation seems quite silly right? Then I decide to read about it. After that, I decide to watch YouTube videos about it. Lastly, BOOM! I add it to my cart.

These makeup sponges are clear silicone sponges that allow you to apply your makeup smoothly without streak. They also save the amount of foundation that is wasted in your beauty blender or foundation brushes. I don’t know about you, but it is super difficult for me to wash half the bottle of foundation out of my beauty blender. Okay, so that’s a bit dramatic. Seriously though, we waste a lot of foundation in beauty blenders and brushes.
Silicone Makeup Sponges are SUPER DUPER easy to clean. You run warm water and soap over it. I love how you can see that it is clean as it is clear.
Flawless Foundation Application With Silicone Makeup Sponge
I put a dime size amount of foundation on the back of my hand and dip my silicone sponge into it. The directions say to apply your foundation in a dabbing motion. However, I found that it was a smoother application when I swiped the foundation across my face. No streaks! None! I absolutely love to apply my liquid highlighters and my concealers. Their round shape offers ease when blending your under eye concealer.
Here’s a video of me using the Silicone Makeup Sponge (2 pack) for the first time.
