These days, nary a makeup bag exists without a sponge in some way, shape, or form. These porous tools have revolutionized the way we tap on concealer and foundation for a flawless, yet natural-looking complexion. While it all began with the Beautyblender 15 years ago, there are now a slew of different types for the most bespoke application possible. Here, find a quick-and-dirty guide to the most popular shapes and textures on the market.

2 The Makeup Bullet
3 The Makeup Drop
I am clearly impressed!! I love to use sponges to apply foundation, but hate how they absorb so much product and can be difficult to clean. #workingwithmakeupdrop is about to change the game! @themakeupdrop is easy to clean silicone and non toxic! #GAMECHANGER #sagawards

5 The Flocked Sponge
Skal du på fest i helgen? Flocked Sponge sørger for god dekk og er perfekt å ha med i vesken for en touch-up i løpet av kvelden 💜 Den kan brukes både til pudder- og flytende foundation og er perfekt sammen med fuktspray 💦 #janeiredale #flockedsponge #foundation
