3. Entertain furry friends
Full disclosure: this makeup sponge use *may* be less of a repurpose and more of a “look on the bright side” after a furry friend steals and snacks on your blender. But the fact remains: old Beautyblenders make great cat toys! Win-win for our furry friends.
4. Add pizzazz to paint jobs
One of the best makeup sponge uses we’ve seen is painting with old Beautyblenders. Use the same process you’d use to create nail art, but dab paint on canvas, your walls or piece of furniture for a super cute speckled effect.
5. Give curls a whirl
Folks, we have to hand it to you: achieving killer curls is perhaps the most creative of all the makeup sponge uses we’ve seen.
For beautiful, heatless curls overnight, simply:
6. Buff out scuffs
Favorite stilettos looking a little worse for wear? Buff out scuffs with your old blenders. Your patent-leather pumps will thank you. 😘
7. Clean screens
Who says beauty products can’t also be functional? One of the most practical makeup sponge uses we’ve seen is cleaning screens.
8. Get a glam, sunless glow
All blender babes know how crucial it is to prime skin daily with SPF — but that doesn’t mean we don’t love a good summer glow! Use old blenders to achieve a flawless self-tanner application. No spots, streaks or marks allowed!
9. Say goodbye to stains
We’ve all been there: you finish your face, swipe on deodorant and pull on your perfect LBD only to realize you’ve smeared foundation and deodorant all over your clothes. Not to worry: wet and squeeze your blender and bounce stains away. No muss, no fuss, all fab!And don’t forget to brush up on your BB health here with our guide to when it’s time to buy a new blender.
