Why You Should Always Wet Your Makeup Sponge

Makeup sponges have been a makeup artist favorite for years and the rest of the world is finally catching on. Using a sponge leaves a gorgeous, even finish that no other beauty tool can mimic. If you use it incorrectly, however, it can also leave your wallet a little thinner. Here's why you should always wet your makeup sponge before use:

To Save Product (and Money!)

The number one reason to wet your sponge first is to save on product. In fact, Beauty Blender even put out a post stating that's how it's intended to be used!

If you don't wet your sponge first, it will soak up that expensive product like water. Doesn't that hurt just a little to think about?

Wetting your sponge thoroughly and letting it fully expand has to be your first step. Then, when you apply foundation or other product to it, it'll already be full of water and won't soak up so much product, saving you tons of product and money.

For Better Performance

When your makeup sponge is damp, it makes product application way easier. It goes on more smoothly and ends up in an even, streak-free finish.
