Powered by innovation, design and disruptive technology, our mission is to significantly improve conventional tools and methods in both makeup application and personal care.
Meet blendSMART, a time-saving and multifunctional tool that blends for you and puts the skills of a makeup artist in your own hand. It’s so simple, it’s smart.
Carol Martin, a former model and now cosmetic surgery consultant, invented the concept of the rotating makeup brush while she was suffering from a wrist injury. During our discovery and research, we tested sonic technology and determined that oscillating, vibrating and sonic pulsing were too abrasive and did not deliver flawless makeup application. Our tests found that sonic brushes worked best for removing makeup and exfoliating. Conversely, makeup application required a new direction, or we’d like to say a NEW SPIN. Working closely with professional makeup artists, engineers, and designers we confirmed rotating technology (@ 190 RPM) replicated the wrist motion of MUA and delivered consistently flawless results.
In 2015, blendSMART launched on the world’s largest home shopping network and impressively sold out in the US, UK, Italy, and Germany. Since the end of 2016, blendSMART has sold over 90,000 units and is available at Sephora.com, Dermstore, Beautybar and many other prestige beauty sites. In the spring of 2017, blendSMART launched on Sephora EU and expanded the spinning revolution into Europe. blendSMART received recognition as a 2015 QVC Customer Choice Beauty Award Nominee for best beauty innovation and was a finalist in the 2016 #beauty20 Los Angeles Award for Best Beauty Start-UP as well as a nominee for Influenster’s Choice Awards. blendSMART was a 2017 Foundermade Beauty Challenge Finalist.

Our Social Passions
While our core mission is to produce outstanding products, we are also committed to building an impactful relationship with our community. In particular, blendSMART has partnered with two philanthropic organizations that are especially close to our hearts. The first, Dress for Success, directly aligns with our mission to empower women. The organization helps women achieve economic independence by providing a network of support. By donating new and slightly used blendSMART brushes, we hope to help Dress for Success clients flawlessly blend their inner and outer beauty confidence.
We have a personal connection with our second sponsorship. Reading Aces, a nonprofit that promotes literacy among at-risk children, was founded by blendSMART founders, Lori and Steve Machiorlette’s daughter. Reading Aces promotes different kinds of blending: committed teen volunteers blend sounds, backgrounds, and communities to foster a love of reading in their elementary-aged participants. With the help of blendSMART and other’s generosity, Reading Aces continues to expand and spread its impact, touching hundreds of low-income students across Texas.
