Why hasn't anybody told me about these wedges ? I am mad . Why is everybody keeping the secret to themselves ?? We all need to look pretty ..not just you. You; with the secret !

Ugh.

Anyways you couldn't keep it from me for long. I discovered them recently and I am all over them. These makeup wedges are the easiest most efficient tools to apply makeup. I hardly use my foundation brushes anymore. In fact with just this one wedge I can finish my whole makeup routine. Its that powerful and multidimensional ( can this word be used here ? I can never tell...)


I bought these wedges at Big lots for $2. Two dollars for 32 wedges. Each wedge can be used for two applications if stored in a Ziploc. I personally use one side on day one and the other side on day two. Sometimes I use a wedge just once - highly recommended. Always look for Latex free ones. I did not but got latex free ones, so that's good. Some people can get a severe allergy with latex sponges.

So, this is how you use it. Take a wedge, wet it, squeeze it to take the water off. Dab in foundation and dab all across your face. Now take some concealer on the wedge and use it under your eyes, over your eyes and everywhere else needed. You hold the thicker side of the wedge and use the thinner side to apply anything and everything. It bends, squishes, molds - does it all.
And did I mention, $2 . I then use it to apply my cream blush and cream highlighter. All done in dabbing motions. So much less pressure on your skin yet the effect is equal to airbrushing.

In between each step sometime I like to wet the wedge with Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray and dab it all over. Other face sprays or water can also be used. Yeah that article is coming up next - The importance of water in makeup. Seriously all these secrets I am discovering are amazing !!!

Try these handy wedges and lemme know how it works for ya

Love,
Indian Girl

I have used these a long time ago, but I don't like the wastage factor. I feel like I am adding a lot more trash to the world.

That being said, they work great, but I still prefer my brushes.

Yeah, the only rant about wedges is that they soak up too much. Did you find the same?

you can actually keep reusing these for a long time if you wash them. i use them twice before washing. i am an environmentalist and don't like throwing things out even if they're cheap.
