“Socks just might be the next BeautyBlender,” says makeup artist and beauty vlogger Mayra in her newest video. Call us skeptics, but socks? Really? Well, Mayra has sure convinced us with this life-changing hack. Here’s how she does it:
First, Mayra notes that you need sport socks that have soft, cushion-y ankles and toes. Then, you twist the sock vertically. It doesn’t really matter if the ankle or toe is at the top, but she’s using the toe at the top here.
Then, she just folds the sock into itself.
Voila! A perfect blending “sponge.”
Look how smooth and even Mayra‘s foundation looks. She says that the sock doesn’t absorb too much of the product, which is great when you don’t want to waste any of your precious makeup
According to PopSugar, Mayra used a three-pack of ClimateRight by Cuddl Duds Low-Cut Socks, which only cost $6. That’s definitely more affordable than other sponges, and socks are super easy to throw right in the wash.
