NYX Hydra Touch Brightener1

NYX Hydra Touch Brightener ($8.99) is a new NYX Spring 2016 release available in three shades selections. Crayons like this are becoming increasingly popular due to the contouring craze at the moment. Basically this is a water-based formula that instantly illuminates skin and adds a touch of radiance wherever you apply it.

I personally purchased it to use on my high brow area as I thought it would make a good switch up from my Too Faced Instant Attitude Brow Lift. I like to add a little bit of a cream or vanilla shade to this area to gift my eyes a little lift and also to contrast off a brown smoky eye look.

It’s obviously a good pick for using down the sides of your nose as well or even the hollows of your eyes as a contouring shade of sorts.

Ecotools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths

The new Ecotools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths ($6.99) have arrived at Ulta and I’ll be picking up a pack for sure. A while back ago Sephora had these awesome brush cleaning wipes available that I fell in love with. The basic idea was that you could use a wipe between brush cleanings to remove surface dirt, oil, and makeup. They also didn’t soak brushes so if you wanted to have a wipe handy to switch out colors that was an awesome option as well. I actually loved them for exactly that reason! I’d keep one hand so I could wipe off the color I was using on my eyes and use a different color without creating a muddy mess.

They were handy!

I’m hoping that the new Ecotools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths can be used in a similar way!

Makeup & Beauty To Buy for Yourself This Valentine’s Day

makeup valentine's day

You can’t always depend on your boy or your girl to pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. If you have wonderful girlfriend chances are she might be a bit more considerate with gifting than those of you with boyfriends, because, you know, sometimes boys are a little clueless when it comes to makeup and beauty (I mean just look at all the “My Boyfriend does my makeup” youTube videos!). Not that all boys are, I’ve known some considerate ones but some are so very clueless about makeup and beauty it’ll make you wince.

In that case here a few makeup and beauty gifts to buy for yourself this Valentine’s Day!
