Makeup artistry is all about blending, blending, blending. With every stand-out era in makeup cosmetics, especially starting in the 1940-50s with the birth of contouring, getting that subtle and effortless blend has been simpler to fine-tune with the tools made available.
Last year, every single practicing and up and coming makeup artist I knew swore by a good quality stippling brush as opposed to basic concealer/foundation/powder brushes or triangular sponges when it came to smoothing out makeup. While it is still very much used and a staple in most kits, early this year, we came to know about Sonia Kashuk blending sponges, which have been all the rage ever since. So both tools seem to tackle multi-purposes as well as problem areas for those that came before them; the question is, which one takes the cake (or perhaps blends out the cake)?
