Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge Part 2

Here's a continuation of the Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge tutorial. Hope you like it.

Step 1:
Dab some bronzer onto the pointy side of the Blending Sponge. Don't scoop up too much but I like to apply it from the sponge onto the face rather than dab it on the face and then blend out. For some reason, I find that this gives you a more natural finish and control.

Step 2:
Place the sponge on the apple of the cheek and slowly blend the cheekbone and temple.

Step 3:
With light, fluttery strokes (doesn't this line sound like it came from a Fabio-drenched-drenched-in-oil-and-hair-ablazin'-with-hapless-heroine-in-tow-romance novel?) blend the bronzer all the way into the temple. This is where the shape of the sponge really helps. I love using the slope/point to follow the line of my cheekbone and can really direct where I want to place the bronzer. It also allowes for great precision blending.

Step 4:
With the round side, 'bounce' the sponge over the bronzer. This sheers it out a bit and blends it seamlessly into the skin. If you want to add intensity repeat the process until you get the desired depth.

Final Result:
Ta-dah! Here is the final result.

Great site - you should really consider doing your tutorials on video and posting on youtube like makeupgeek does.

Looks great! I second the question on which bronzer that is, it looks very nice and subtle. I'm in the market for a bronzer that's not frosty :)

Mashallah you are so beautiful!
I love this tip, because bronzer just sits there for me looking powdery and fake. Like dirt on my skin.
I guess I'll get a sponge to use instead of a brush.

Thankyou so much for answering my question about the chanel lip gloss and I have to say you maintain a GREAT blog, if it weren't for all the tutorials and recommendations I wouldn't even know how to apply lipstick (sadly that's practically true!), so yeah Thank you once again :)

Hello Anu..

Love ur blogsite!! Have been following ur posts regularly and appreciate all your effort. Have learnt some great makeup tips here....

I need your advice...I would like to try a Primer and a Luminizer (which were never a part of my Makeup regime). I have been reading about some brands such as Smashbox Photofinsh, Laura Geller's Spackel, etc and Lorac and Stilla for a Luminizer.

Most of these brands are unavilable in India and neither can they neither can they be shipped across.

Can you please suggest some Indian substitutes for the same. Will be very helpful (PS - I have my sis's wedding coming up next month).
