Woman Uses Tampon to Apply Foundation

This Influencer Just Did Her Makeup With a Tampon, and We Have So Many Questions

Makeup sponges are the perfect way to evenly spread your foundation, but one influencer just discovered an alternative to the sponge, and, well, we're at a loss for words. Ashley Blue DeFrancesco recently shared a video using a tampon to spread her foundation, and we have a lot of questions.

There's no denying that Ashley's makeup looks gorgeous. In fact, we're honestly shocked that the tampon worked so successfully! But if you're especially thrifty, we wouldn't recommend trying this method at home.

The beloved Beautyblender became popular because it doesn't absorb too much product. Because tampons are specifically designed to be absorbent, this makes the tampon tactic a little counterproductive (and wasteful). We're all about trying new ideas, like wrapping our makeup sponges in condoms, but we might have to pass on trying this one for ourselves.
