The classic teardrop or oval-shaped makeup sponge is still the most reliable tool used by makeup artists, bloggers and makeup enthusiasts in general. And for all the right reasons, it applies a seamless coat of liquid, gel, and cream formulas leaving skin perfectly flawless. The large end is used to apply your foundation whereas the tapered point is perfect for blending concealer over more targeted areas of your face.
The flat-ended makeup sponge is also rightly called the multi-tasker sponge. Boasting three different sides, the rounded side is great for basic application of foundation and bronzer, the tapered tip for detailing and flat side for contouring. Use it dry for full coverage or damp for a controlled and buildable look.
