In an effort to recreate the trending Silisponge makeup blender vloggers and makeup enthusiasts are hacking their beauty blenders and are tucking them inside condoms. That’s right, condoms. While on the other hand we never thought we’d would be rubbing our faces with makeup-covered latex it’s proven to be the most lifesaving thing for application. Beauty vlogger Laila Tahri tested out the condom trick for her followers and we all were pleasantly surprised.
Beauty Vlogger Laila Tahri says:
“I came up with this idea because I love using a sponge, but it absorbs so much product,” Laila explained on Instagram. “Using the condom around it, it doesn’t absorb any product and it applies super smooth!”
Working in the same way the popular Silicone sponge doesn’t absorb makeup, the latex prevents the Beautyblender from soaking up makeup and guarantees a smooth application. If you are worried about how the lubrication could adhere to your favorite foundation formula, have no fear there is a solution. Laila has stated that the most important thing to do before trying this technique is to clean off the condoms spermicide and lubricant then blend away.

APPLYING MAKEUP WITH A CONDOM?! The video is now on my youtube channel. ??Link in my bio. _ If you watch my youtube video. You know that i washed the condom first. And i know i applied a wrong foundation shade. I fixed it later with the concealer. I was to lazy to take it off. _ I came up with this idea because of that i love using a sponge. But it absorbs so much product. With using the condom around it HAHA it doesnt absorb any product and it applies super smooth! ________ @anastasiabeverlyhills brow pro palette (used Ebony) & modern renaissance @labelle_uk @amadea_dashurie matte liquid lipsticks Vamp Addict & Pink Latte & Nude Souffle (used on lips and eyes) @yourlashesofficial lashes Nasira @girlactik matte bronzer cabo @gorgeouscosmeticsofficial conceal it light natural @motivescosmetics shimmer powder Bombshell @zwitsalofficial baby powder @contourcosmetics all day spray @lorealmakeup infallible 24h foundation ___ Brushes @anastasiabeverlyhills 7B, A25, A3, A28, A23 @sigmabeauty F25, F66 @motivescosmetics powder @realtechniques sponge ____ @wakeupandmakeup @hudabeauty @eyelive4beauty @shimycatsmua @maryhadalittleglam @allmodernmakeup @slaysolutely @makeupforbarbies @thebeautybombb @nikkietutorials
