Sponge Tip Challenge!

Hey guys!

I have a fun new challenge to tell you about! Not a contest- however a contest IS coming soon... but this is just something fun that I thought many of my viewers/readers would like to take part in. It was prompted by a message from one of my viewers- she said I should do a tutorial using only those little sponge tip applicators that come with eyeshadows- since many people don't have a huge brush collection.

Not only did I think this was a great idea, I thought I'd ask my viewers on YouTube to post video responses showing their sponge-tip looks, and for those who don't have a YouTube account- you can email a picture of your finished look, along with a list of the products used- to beautybroadcast@hotmail.com ...then I can post those pics here on the blog so everyone can enjoy them! So I hope you'll decide to take part!

The look can be as easy or complicated as you like. Use high-end products, drugstore products, whatever. The only rule is that you use sponge tip applicators and NO brushes for the eyeshadow look.

To see how I accomplished this look with sponge tip applicators, check out my video!
