Looking to up your makeup game this fall? We’ve got you covered! Here, beautyblender ambassador Erica Dickerson shares a step-by-step guide on how to create a monochromatic pink makeup look using her favorite beauty products and, of course, beautyblender’s range of makeup sponges. We love how easy it is to pull this look off, as well as how versatile beautyblender sponges are! From contouring to strobing to baking to applying your eyeshadow, get everything done with just these sponges! Watch the video below to see this egg-shaped multitasker in action.

1. Wet your beautyblender

For that flawless finish, make sure you wet your beautyblender first, and then squeeze it out to remove excess water. Remember, your beautyblender should be damp, not soaking wet.

Try: beautyblender pop – A limited-edition, Pop Art–inspired, vibrant orange–colored beautyblender.

2. Dab Your Foundation

Using the beautyblender, dab your favorite foundation across your face, using the round end of the sponge for large areas like your cheek and forehead and the pointy tip for smaller areas and crevices, like your chin, under your eyes and the side of your nose.

To get the best coverage, try: COVER FX Natural Finish Oil-Free Foundation

3. Apply Concealer

Apply a thick layer of concealer under your eyes and lids. For a seamless look, use beautyblender Micro Mini‘s fine tip (make sure it’s damp) to deposit the product and then blend with the rounded base. For this step, Erica used Amazing Cosmetics A Little Amazing Concealer.

3. Bake your makeup

Set your concealer by dusting translucent powder on top of it. Also apply it where you’d normally apply your highlighter when you’re contouring or strobing: above and below your cheekbones, on your chin and forehead. Do not blend yet—let it bake for at least 5 minutes. This ensures your skin gets that creaseless, poreless finish.

For long-lasting results, try: Dermablend Loose Setting Powder

4. Do your eye makeup

To create that beautiful, halo glow around your eyes, apply RMS Eye Polish first all over your lids. Then, apply “Mod” from Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist PRO Eyeshadow Palette to the crease, and then blend the pigments outwards using the Micro Mini. Finish your eye makeup with a thin line of liquid liner; flick the ends for that sexy, feline look.

5. Apply a cream blush

To add just the right amount of warmth to your skin, use a sheer-finish cream blush, like Honest Beauty’s Creme Blush in Truly Flirting. Apply this soft pink blush evenly across the apples of your cheeks with the rounded base of your beautyblender and keep blending until you can’t see where the blush ends and your skin color begins.

6. Apply highlighter to strategic points on your face

For that gorgeous glow, apply a rose gold–colored highlighter where your skin would normally catch light: above your cheekbones, your cupid’s bow, the tip of your nose, under your eyebrows and the inner corners of your eyes. For this, we love Laura Geller New York’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey.

7. Finish with mascara and a hot pink lip

Finish your look with a few coats of black mascara—we love Kevyn Aucoin’s The Volume Mascara—and then accentuate your lips with a gorgeous metallic berry shade, like Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in Cayenne.

There you have it: an ultra-glamorous look you can wear from day to night!
