We're always tapping our favorite makeup artists for tips and new foundation tricks for a more flawless-looking finish. But every once in a while, the internet dreams up a novel and, frankly, bizarre application hack. Recently, we turned to Reddit for tips about the SiliSponge, an odd-looking makeup applicator out of Hong Kong that promises to step up your foundation game. And now, there's another Beautyblender ($20) alternative on the block, and it's even more untraditional.
Enter: the "boob blender." This technique shows the sheer resourcefulness of popular beauty vloggers. Since the SiliSponge has been sold out everywhere, the beauty-obsessed have noticed a similarity between the sponge and their bra inserts and taken things into their own hands. Yes, that's right. They're using chicken cutlets to apply foundation. But guess what: It works. According to Marie Claire, the silicone cup doesn't absorb product (which is a godsend seeing as good foundation can cost you) and evenly distributes coverage across your skin. Watch the video below to see this genius foundation hack in action.
I am glad to see this beauty trying my BOOB BLENDER hack & liking it! #Repost @sharifaeasmin (forgot to mention the point of this ???? it's supposed to give you a smooth finish without soaking up extra product like a regular sponge-i definitely used too much foundation here but with a little bit it looks great and NOT CAKEY!!) It was so hard trying not to laugh doing this video ???? I was putting a boob insert on my face! ???????? i don't try many weird beauty hacks going around but this one made me curious especially because i had some bra inserts lying around that i never used. I saw the sili sponge thing that's been so popular a few days ago but it's always sold out! and i'm sure a lot of you who saw it thought "hey! that looks like a silicone bra insert" then i saw a video by Hello Maphie and @hudabeauty and it looked like it actually worked! so i tried it..and guys...IT WORKS! i put a little too much at first but on my forehead i used a good amount and it looked really good! I used the @maybelline fit me foundation in 240 mixed with @farsalicare rose gold elixir ✨Lips: @hudabeauty @shophudabeauty trendsetter liquid lipstick from this little sephora set i bought! ✨ lashes: @eyerisbeauty
