It seems like using bizarre make-up tools is the new trend that the beauty industry is swearing by these days. From using sanitary napkins to get the perfect winged eyeliner to using a fork for contouring your nose, they’ve done it all.
However, beauty Vlogger Laila Tahri has upped this game by going one step ahead and using a condom as a base applicator and make-up blender. No, that wasn’t a typo, you read that right.
Of course, we were skeptical about this trend, but when we saw the results, it really won us over.
Going by how odd it sounds, you might be wondering how it works? But it is one easy-breezy DIY make-up hack.
All you’ve got to do is to take a condom and wash it with water to get rid of the flavour and the lube. Insert a blending sponge inside the condom or just stuff it with cotton and tie both ends. Tada, your beauty blender is ready.
You can use it to apply your foundation or concealer. And trust us–it does a great job blending it.
The best part about his whacky base-applicator-cum-blender is that unlike the sponges and the brushes, the latex condoms don’t absorb your expensive products. Plus, you don’t even need to invest in a silicone blender. What more can you ask for?
If you’re still not convinced, take a look at the video and it will change your mind just like it changed ours:
APPLYING MAKEUP WITH A CONDOM?! The video is now on my youtube channel. ??Link in my bio. _ After posting this video i found out that @lvixxen did the applying makeup with a condom first. Credit to her _ I came up with this idea because of that i love using a sponge. But it absorbs so much product.
