Tampon Beauty Blender

When will the madness end?

If we've learned anything from the beauty community on Instagram and YouTube, it's that you can use absolutely ANYTHING to apply make up and brushes are 100% overrated. (Don't quote us on that...)

We've seen people use the wildest things to apply their foundation in the past. Remember the chicken fillets? Remember when that one beauty vlogger covered their beauty blender with a condom? Wild. Truly. 

Now, beauty vlogger Ashley Blue DeFrancesco has taken it to another level by (jokingly, of course) using a tampon in place of her beauty blender and tbh, it really didn't go well. 


Even though she turned it ~OUT~ in the end, Ashley quickly realised that using a tampon as a beauty blender was a terrible, terrible idea. Tampons are 100% cotton and completely absorbent so obviously, she didn't get much coverage on her foundation or concealer. The textured surface isn't exactly idea for a smooth finish either. Basically, it was a hilarious disaster.

Never take your beauty blenders for granted, people!
