When I decide to use the phrase "smackdown" in the title, I was thinking in terms of a "contest" between the 2. However, according to Google, the definition of smackdown is: "a bitter contest or confrontation." Since both sponges are good & effective, I don't think this "contest" is bitter. That being said, there is definitely a clear winner in this "smackdown". If you want to see which sponge emerges the victor, then just watch the video. :) http://www.divashopblog.com/2015/04/blending-sponge-smackdown.html
Youtube user Dyna199 requested a video of my makeup brush collection. However, due to the amount of brushes I have, I decided to narrow it down to my most used brushes. Otherwise this would be an insanely long video. :) It's already long, actually (between 25 & 30 min.). http://www.divashopblog.com/2015/06/most-used-makeup-brushes.html
This tutorial is my first attempt at a glittery eye look. There were several times during the process when I was telling myself I should abandon it completely, but I stuck it out. I'm glad I did because, in spite of my lack of experience, it turned out fine. :) For a full list of products used, see my blog. http://www.divashopblog.com/2015/05/glitter-cut-crease.html
