Cutisonic - a great beauty buy

Check out how to use this clever beauty tool for cleansing and applying foundation. Editor Trudi Brewer shares her favourite pocket-sized beauty tool.


What is it
Cutisonic Sonic Facial Cleanser and Makeup Applicator, $62.
Portable, with disposable makeup, sponges the sonic face brush doubles as a makeup applicator that buffs liquid foundation into the skin at over 22,000 vibrations per minute. This gives an airbrush finish to your makeup look with very little effort blending or having to use other makeup brushes.  
Who can use it?
Anyone who wants a flawless finish to their makeup and is time poor. If you like a lightweight finish to your makeup, with the press of a finger, switch the Cutisonic to the low mode and gently buff makeup onto the skin. It's also ideal for applying cream blush or highlighter onto the cheeks or décolleté.   
How we used it?
Dot your regular liquid makeup onto your face, and using the low-speed mode, simply buff makeup into the skin in circular movements until the foundation is well blended. Apply blush in a stripe on the cheekbone and buff away any lines blending the blush into the skin.
The verdict?
I really liked the flawless yet natural makeup look this tool gave my skin, and it was much easier to use than I anticipated. Whether you are after a light base or a fuller coverage, this tool can cater to both. I applied one layer of foundation for daytime, which gave a tinted moisturiser-like finish and for an evening look, I added a little more makeup onto the Cutisonic to offer a fuller coverage. And then for applying colour, with a quick switch of the removable sponge pad, I apply my cream blush.
