3. Simply Nam's Microfibre Sponge Is The Secret To Flawless Makeup
Ever wondered how some people get their makeup looking absolutely picture perfect? A lot of the time it isn't the makeup they use but the tools they use to apply it. Enter the Simply Nam Velvet Microfibre Makeup Sponge. Made of fine microfiber bristles, the sponge gives a seamless smooth finish and allows for both dry and wet application. It's nice to note that the product is also vegan, eco-friendly, latex-free and cruelty-free. The sponge is built to ensure less product absorption for full coverage and an airbrushed finish. Blend your under-eye makeup with the top pointed flat angled corner, pick the bottom side of the sponge to apply blush and use the sides to contour.
