Why does my beauty blender make me look oily? How can I avoid that?

Asked by

Because beauty blenders are used damp so then you apply it your face looks soft of “wet” because excess water is getting on your skin but a lot of people like a more dewy, less matte finish. So if you prefer a matte finish it might not be the best for you. You can always put powder on top to create a matte finish! You could use it dry but it will soak up quite a bit of your foundation/product. I use it dry for concealer under my eyes but not for foundation :)

Hey I got the beauty blender from target not the real brand . What's the difference?? Will mine still work? I just got it today

The Sonia Kashuk one? That one is pretty similar!

The only problem I have with some of the less expensive ones are they are less bouncy and more firm so it’s doesnt blend as well but they are still pretty good used damp nonetheless :)

Heya, I'm so so so sorry if you've answered this already, but do you know of any relatively cheap/affordable red matte lipglosses. I would love the Lime Crime Velvetine lipgloss but the price of that plus shipping to the UK is way out of budget for an already broke-ass girl!

Some great affordable matte liquid lipsticks are

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam and Monte Carlo

Wet n Wild Liquid Lip Colors

Revlon Matte Balms 

What is a good long lasting drugstore blush? Or reasonably priced higher end long wearing blush ($30 range I'm ok with)? My blush always comes off within an hour and makes my contouring look terrible because it stands out with worn off blush.

Try using a cream blush under your powder blush! That will help any blush last longer. Using a long lasting foundation and primer can help your cheek products last longer too :)

But as for long wearing blushes try

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blushes $26

Kat Von D Everlasting Blushes $25

MAC Pro Longwear Blushes $23

The Balm Instain $22

i really love the urban decay naked palette but i'm finding it too shimmery for some looks. could you recommend something similar but with matte shadows?
