Beautyblender’s Guide to Choosing the Perfect Foundation Shade (VIDEO)

Beautyblender earlier this month announced it would be adding beauty products to go along with its iconic applicator sponge. Now, an expert from the company sits down with EBONY to demonstrate how to beat your face properly in addition to revealing how to select the right foundation from the brand’s new 32-shade collection and how to properly use and clean its sponges.

Below is a list of the products used in the tutorial.

This liquid formula is the company’s first attempt at foundation. The product has a lightweight, long-lasting matte finish that blends seamlessly, especially when it is applied with the beautyblender sponge. In the video, the makeup artist swatches foundations showing you how to choose your perfect shade based on your undertone.
