Bye bye beauty blender! People are using EGGS as makeup sponges


There are always some weird beauty hacks doing the rounds online, but the latest one is completely bonkers. 

Beauty blenders have become the makeup application tool of choice for MUAs and mere mortals alike, but some beauty bloggers are mixing it up with a very unexpected tool. 

Eggs are a pretty versatile food, but now they are being incorporated into our beauty routines.

According to a few in the online makeup community, hard-boiled eggs are the newest way to apply your foundation, contour and even eye shadow.

The experiment (or should we say, eggs-periment) was first undertaken by MUA Nadi, of Pop Luxe.

In a YouTube video, the makeup fan applied a full face of makeup using the protein-filled snack, and it went surprisingly well.

"Oh my gosh, this is actually working really, really well," he said.

"This kind of feels like a really cold SiliSponge but it smells like sewage, like eggs, so that's a turnoff — but it's actually doing a pretty good job."

Another beauty blogger, Esther Gbudje, also attempted the look and had a similar experience.

"The egg did give me the flawless look I was going for, and it doesn't absorb any product at all," she told Allure

We're not convinced that boiled eggs are about to take over from beauty blenders, but this experiment was pretty unique.

We just hope that their faces didn't have that distinctive eggy scent after application…
