For real? Yup, this is not a yolk. Several YouTubers are now using hard-boiled eggs to blend out their makeup. So the next time you need a makeup sponge but don’t have one on hand, the egg is an egg-cellent alternative. Okay, we’ll stop with the egg puns now.
To make your own hard-boiled egg makeup blender, hard boil an egg and store it in the freezer for 5 minutes to get it nice and cold. The bouncy cold egg will feel amazing on your skin. Most of the YouTubers commented that it felt refreshing, although they weren’t too crazy about the egg after-smell. To apply liquid foundation, dot your foundation onto your face and bounce the egg onto your face using light tapping and rolling motions to blend the product out.
As the egg is slightly moist, it gives your foundation a dewy finish. However, the overall size and shape of the egg makes it hard to reach smaller areas of the face. Nothing your fingers can’t fix!

Although it looks like a fun hack, we’d rather save the eggs for breakfast!
