Brushes Vs Beauty Blenders

Do you use a Brush to apply your foundation or do you use a Beauty Blender? This is the question of the ages. I swear, every time I watch a Makeup Youtube tutorial, there’s always some people who hate using beauty blenders and vice versa. Or, if you watch those Vogue beauty videos, some people prefer to use their fingers (Yeah, I find that really weird). Which one do I prefer? Hmmm…….Keep reading to find out.

When I first started getting into wearing makeup, I was all into the brushes. I would go to the Nyx Cosmetic store or my local drugstore to see what the best brushes were and so on. I lived by the code that “Brushes were the best for me”, and, no one could tell me otherwise. I had tried beauty blenders before, but I didn’t get why people were so into them. I didn’t really know how to use them either. I was like “What’s the use of this?”. So, I kept on using my brushes.

I didn’t immediately start watching Beauty Tutorials until one day my friend told me about the biggest Youtube Gurus and said ,”Ok, let me check this out”. I started watching the videos and saw the different techniques  they used to apply their makeup and saw how they used the beauty blender. I said to myself, “Oh ok, that’s how you’re supposed to use it Raceen”, haha. I then proceeded to order some from Amazon.

After I received them in the mail, I tried to use them, but I still wasn’t satisfied, so I went back to using my brushes. Until the hair in my foundation brush started falling out. I was panicking, wondering “Omg what am I going to use now”. Then, I looked down and saw my beauty blenders and it was like a light bulb had switched on. I  then started to really learn how to use them because I really didn’t have a choice at that point. You know what I’m saying?  Now, I love them.

Below, I’ll show you my experience with the Beauty Blender Vs A Brush

The Brush……

After – As you can see, it looks patchy and not really blended

My conclusion? Beauty Blenders are Better! Yeah I said it! Haha.

But that’s just my personal preference.

Brushes don’t work for me anymore because it just makes my foundation look patchy and grainy.

Maybe there will be some new applicator  that’s invented  in 2030 that is even better than beauty blenders and brushes. Haha.

Using a  beauty blender makes my foundation looks so smooth. I really love it.

Here’s my entire makeup look

  1. I prefer beauty blenders over brushes because of the bristle/brush hair fall out I would experience when applying foundation and concealer. And, to be honest, I resorted to using my fingers to blend my makeup in after swearing off of brushes, but that was also before the beauty blender movement. I’ll never go back to brushes, I love my beauty blender too much!

    Different topic, but kind of related: do you use your fingers or a brush to apply eyeshadow? I see so many beauty gurus on YouTube that apply their eyeshadow with their fingers, and I just can’t get behind it. Brushes all day for eyeshadow! Just curious on your opinion.
