Beauty blenders have been a must-have beauty item for a while now, but sometimes t can still be hard to know where to get one. There are so many different types, in different shapes and with different textures, so I’m here to make this little easier for you! Just because beauty blenders are a makeup-bag essential, it doesn’t mean that they have to be super expensive to be any good. So here are 10 be beauty blenders that are under £20:
Flutter, Makeup Sponge, £1
Cheap and cheerful! Not only does this blender come in an adorable shade of pink, it is also presented in cute packacking, to look like a cat. Obviously the price is a winner here, and being in Superdrug means its super easy to get a hold of. Another plus is that it has great reviews- it’s a win/win.
Spectrum, Unicorn Tears Sponge £4.99
Available in either pink or purple, this beauty blender has possibly the cutest name. With both a rounded edge and a pointed one, it makes the perfect multi-purpose blender to get in and blend all those small spaces. Not only is it latex-free, it also has great reviews, with 4/5 stars! Buy at Birchbox.com.
B. Latex Free Blending Sponge £4.99
Allergic or sensitive to latex- this beauty blender might just be your new fav! Similar to the Unicorn Tears sponge, its shape is perfect for blending even the smallest of areas! Due to the blender being latex-free, the materialunlike the traditional sponges, is made of a different material that shouldn’t absorb makeup, meaning less chance of build-up and breakouts on your face! Available in superdrug stores or online.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge £5.99
This is my personal favourite and go-to beauty blender. Not only is it super affordable, but it also really versatile. This 3-in-1, multi-functional sponge has a flat edge, rounded side and a precision tip which means that you can use it to contour, blend and dab to your hearts content, all over your face! I personally use the flat side the most, as I find it perfect for liquid highlighters! Find one online at FeelUnique.
Barely, Prep, Blot and Blend, £5.99, Feel Unique
Another FeelUnique find! Apparently this beauty blender is less for your actual makeup and more for prepping your skin. Properly prep your skin with serums, moisturisers and lotions by pressing them into your skin with this blender, rather than just leaving it to stay on the surface.
Nyx, Flawless Finish Blending Sponge, £7.00
NYX cosmetics are one of my favourite beauty brands in general, so there is no surprise that one of their blenders is on my list! Again, this is a great blender because of its shape, all you have to do is wet and squeeze out the excess water! Another great, multi-purpose beauty find! Go to CultBeauty to find it!
Morphe Flawless Beauty Sponge, £7.50
With 5* reviews on BeautyBay, this blender sponge by Morphe is clearly one to look out for! Not only is it in a really nice shade of red, the funky shape also means you can get creative with your application and blending! One thing I think would be great about this blender is that, due to the shape, it is probably the easiest to hold onto and so just makes applying your makeup that much easier. It’s not called flawless for no reason!
BH Cosmetics, Studio Pro Sponge, £8
Pretty in purple! This cute beauty blender will make you look like a flawless goddess as you blend and away those annoying lines from liquids and powders. Teardrop shaped, its great for both the bigger and smaller areas of your face! You can get this cute blender online from BeautyBay.
Dior, Backstage Blender, £12
Love a label? Sometime’s it pays off to spend a little more on beauty products! If you go on the Dior website, there is even a demonstration video that comes with this professional looking sponge! Its egg shape and ergonomic design is perfect if you’re applying liquid foundation! Buy online at Dior.com or at a Dior makeup retailer.
