This 1 tiny product will be your biggest beauty lifesaver

Beautyblender Original Beautyblender, $20, available at

Fair warning: this isn't your old-school makeup sponge.

Since its inception back in 2010, the Beautyblender has quickly become a favorite for YouTube vloggers, professional makeup artists and makeup connoisseurs alike. Its a tiny, trusty tool that's kept in the back pocket of many seasoned pros.

There's a special reason why so many swear by it. The little egg-shaped sponge will help give you a dewy, airbrushed finish that can't be replicated with brushes alone. The innovative design makes navigating the unique shape of your face a breeze. That means you won't be left with cake-y or streaky foundation.

By just lightly wetting the sponge, the blender becomes "full" so that the makeup sits on top of the product instead of being absorbed by it. The absorption of water also lets the blender double in size and become super soft on the skin, making makeup application delicate and smooth. Just add in your go-to makeup product and lightly cover up any blemishes, dark circles, or unevenness in your skin's appearance. The end result is a soft and flawless complexion.

The best part? Not only does the Beautyblender minimize makeup consumption so that you can keep using your favorite products for longer, but it also works with a wide array of beauty must-haves including primers, foundations, powders, cream blushes, and any other complexion product.

At just $20, this professional tool is worth every single penny.
