I worked with Graftobian to help develop the Glamour Grip TM HD Beauty Sponge line because I loved its shape, feel, and easy clean up and practicality. The hourglass design gives it a perfect grip for any makeup artist and the super soft sponge, especially when wet, feels great on the skin. Used to apply Graftobian HD Glamour Crèmes, it goes on beautifully and easily with a flawless, almost airbrushed finish. I also love the variety of colors to choose from.
This makes organizing my actor bags so much easier; each actor gets their own color. Finally, I love the way it cleans up so well with simple dish soap and warm water, quick and easy*Suzanne Diaz is a Professional Makeup Artist for the film and television industry.

Use to apply a full cover, wet/dry powder foundation. Our sponges—both synthetic and natural—help apply color in a hurry. Having proper tools can make the difference between an average artist and a professional.
Tip: cut the round sponge into pie-shaped wedges to use for application of color through stencils or directly onto the skin. These small, large or detail sponge daubers are great for using as finger sponges, and come with a useful plastic cap.
They work well with any of our ProPaint™(p.59), Bad Ass Stencils™(p.62-65 and Disguise Stix™(p.67) for dabbing on color when a paint brush or fingers just won’t do! To use: Simply press the dauber into the moistened Face Paint (p.59, 67) and apply with a quick dabbing motion onto the skin.
