One thing is for sure — multi-functional beauty tools are a total godsend. It can be completely satisfying when you’re able to use an item from your beauty arsenal for a variety of purposes. If you have a BeautyBlender in your possession, then congrats! You’re already hashtag #blessed according to the beauty world. That cute, little egg-shaped sponge known for creating flawless foundation is one of these wonderfully rare multitasking beauty tools.

You can get different styles of BeautyBlenders for various purposes. While the original sponge is good for applying foundation, powder and cream blush, the BodyBlender helps provide even coverage for self tanning lotion and bronzers. And at one-fourth the size of the original, the micro mini gets all up in the nooks and crannies of your face. It’s perfect to use with color-correcting concealer, contour and undereye coverage.

Makeup and sunless tanner aren’t the only products these babies can work with. There are a ton of tips and hacks that come along with these miracle sponges. With a BeautyBlender in one hand, you’ll pretty much be ready to conquer the world.

Applying skin care products

Use the BeautyBlender to apply pretty much any kind of skincare product, such as moisturizer, eye cream, facial masques and SPF. Just like with makeup, saturate the sponge with water and squeeze out the excess before using it to stipple (or gently bounce) on your skin. This allows the sponge to provide even coverage without wasting any product. Do you like using facial oil but hate getting it on your fingers? This will be your savior.

BeautyBlenders should be replaced every three months, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should throw them out. Here’s some cool hacks to do with your old sponges.

Touch up roots

As we learned with this hair strobing trick, you can touch up root regrowth a lot easier with an old BeautyBlender!

Ombre nail art

Get your gradient nail on! Choose three to four colors of nail polish and paint a thin strip of each color at the top of the sponge. Before the polish dries, carefully roll the sponge over your nail, creating a totally fab ombre design.

New toy for kitty
