This Woman Used a Marshmallow as a Beauty Blender

Huda Beauty recently shared a clip of a girl using a marshmallow as a beauty blender, and now the video's gone viral.

Just when we thought we've seen everything become a BeautyblenderiPhones, condoms, and even — excuse me — balls, it seems the Internet isn't quite done with the DIY trend. (Unfortunately for us.) And the latest hack to make its way to the depths of the interwebs? Using a marshmallow — yes, marshmallows, as in the puffy sweet treat — as a glorified foundation blending tool.
[post_ads]Thanks to Instagram star and makeup mogul Huda Kattan, who recently shared this latest trick, we discovered Manalmuffin and her marshmallow hack, which has garnered 800,000-plus views. "So I went for a very dewy glowing look, the kind I could go for [every day]," she wrote. "Also, I used a marshmallow to blend my makeup and I kid you not it actually blended well! I was so shocked (my marshmallows were kept in the refrigerator hence they were hard enough to blend my makeup effortlessly)."
Marshmallows? Yes, marshmallows. Here's how she used them: After applying serum and primer, Manalmuffin dotted her liquid illuminizer and foundation onto her face and began blending with a traditional makeup sponge. But after a few seconds, she didn't seem happy with the blending results. Here's where the marshmallows come in. Instead of reaching for a foundation brush or a Beautyblender to finish the job, she headed to the refrigerator for a puffy treat, which surprisingly, seamlessly set the rest of her makeup, leaving her with what appears to be a flawless finish.

But, really? A marshmallow? There's got to be a better way to use a know, to like, eat. Commenters seemed to agree, as they began chiming in with critique, calling out Manalmuffin for wasting food. Which is why she decided to update the caption section with a reply: "EDIT: YOU GUYS REALLY NEED TO CHILL. STOP TAKING EVERYTHING SO SERIOUSLY. NO ONE USES THIS ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS WAS JUST FOR FUN. LITERALLY USING A SINGLE MARSHMALLOW DOESNT CAUSE WORLD HUNGER OR FAMINE. MARSHMALLOW ISNT EVEN A REAL FOOD FFS," she wrote. "Yes I did use a marshmallow. No I'm not wasting food, I know my etiquettes well. Makeup has no rules and we can go out of the way and try new things. Do not come at me with your negativity. Keep your negativity to yourself x." She's right, though. Makeup is supposed to be fun and she's definitely having a good time.
Bottom line, though, yes, the marshmallow seemed to work just fine for blending Manalmuffin's makeup, but no, we're not recommending replicating this hack. In case you need reminding, marshmallows are food and food doesn't belong on your face, despite what you see on the Internet, so let's keep it that way. And for the love of god, can we all just chill with the food/household items as makeup blenders, please?
