Ladies, listen up. Learn the role socks play in your makeup application
It’s official, the world of beauty, just keeps getting stranger.
Beauty Youtuber, Mayra, from Mayra’s House Of Glam, has taken to her channel to upload a beauty hack we’ve never seen before.
In her 6 minute video, Mayra used a SOCK with a cushioned heel and toe to apply her foundation.
She starts by turning the socks inside-out and then uses the spongey materials to buff the foundation into her skin.
Ending with a pretty flawless finish, we have to say, we’re kinda impressed.
Although some may worry the sock would absorb more makeup than traditional applicators, Mayra addresses this concern, explaining that it doesn’t absorb too much, especially compared to sponges that are known for sometime picking up too much product.
Now, before you run to the sock draw to try her method, remember to use a cushioned sock- or any variety with a slightly padded, spongey heel or toe.
At the end of her video, Mayra raised a good point, that once you’ve finished blending your foundation with your sock, you can simply pop it in the wash and continue to reuse it – potentially saving you money in the long run.
It wasn’t just a foundation blender, she continued to use the sock to blend out her cream contour as well – proving it’s a real multi-tasker.
I will be trying this.
