A few months ago a new Beauty Blender case was released. Ah! Brilliant! I hate leaving my sponge sitting out on the sink. I was all ready to buy it when I tried Googling it to remember what it was called. And then I saw these guys. $10 plastic eggs.
We can do better than that right? For $1-5 you can get a whole pack of colorful eggs!
3/16th drill bit
If your egg already has holes on the top and bottom pieces, skip straight to decorating! If not brace each egg half on a flat surface and gently drill holes on the top and bottom.
Be careful trying to create large holes in the eggs- I originally tried creating the polka dot pattern with varied spot sizes and found that using any bit larger than 3/16th cracks the whole thing up.
Some tips for finding the perfect egg: take your blender to Target at it’s max size. I wandered the rows of colorful eggs, beauty blender in hand, and looked for oned that seemed big enough. As you can see in the above photo it fit the blenders perfectly! When completely dry. It wasn’t until I was trying to fill out the eggs more for photos that I was quickly reminded how much these sponges expand. Whoops.
Bonus tip: If your egg don’t stand up, you can find or make a regular egg holder to display the case. The faux granite egg holders from last year would be a nice vanity addition 😉
