1. Prep your skin. Rough, dry patches are foundation’s number-one nemesis—they make application uneven and flaky, no matter how dewy or hydrating your makeup is, says Streicher. To smooth out skin, start by exfoliating with a chemical exfoliator (gritty scrubs can be too harsh), and then slather on moisturizer while your skin is still damp; […]

Aside from the annoying cycle of breakouts I experience whenever my skin decides to be on extra-bad behavior (or, ahem, when I’m on my period), dark circles are my number one nemesis and complexion-related concern. I’m not sure if it’s genetics, prioritizing Netflix or late-night writing over beauty sleep, or a practically inhuman level of […]

DO YOU brush up? Do you clean up? If not, you should start. Stat. Makeup tools are a breeding ground for spot-inducing bacteria. And the best brush cleaners will ensure you avoid an unwanted breakout by removing dirt and blemish-causing build-up. View this post on Instagram It's time we acknowledge what Sundays are really for #brushcaresunday #realtechniques A post shared by Real Techniques (@realtechniques) on Mar 10, 2019 at 1:36am PST It may seem like an effort, but experts recommend you should clean your makeup brushes every two to four weeks. As well as keeping your skin in great condition, regularly washing your brushes will also keep them in tip-top shape and ensure better performance for longer, as well as a seamless colour application. Makeup brush maintenance will ensure bristles stay soft and conditioned, meaning they’ll last longer. And, considering they’re not exactly cheap, this makes complete financial sense. From easy-action pump sprays and electric wash-and-dry cleaners, to waxes, liquids and palettes, we’ve tracked down the best makeup brush cleaners below. Get ready to wash and glow. Best brush cleaner palette Best brush cleaner palette Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette, £12.99 from Very – buy here A big mistake we can make when cleaning our makeup brushes is getting too much of them wet. To keep them in good shape, the only bit you need to wash are the bristles. But that’s easier said than done, right? Not anymore. Enter the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette, designed to make buffing up your brushes super-simple. Just slip it over your hand and add a coin-sized amount of Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Gel (sold separately) before adding warm water. Swirl the brush over the bristles until the dirt disappears and squeeze out excess water. Suitable for all sizes of tools, it’s a mean, clean, brush machine. Best brush cleaner wax Best brush cleaner wax Beautyblender Pure Solid Cleanser, £15 from Cult beauty – buy here Banish bacteria and makeup build-up with this super-handy travel-friendly cleansing wax. Just massage a small amount into your damp sponge or brush, and lather. The soy-based softening product gets rid of dirt while keeping your tools in great condition, too. Use sparingly and this brush-buffer will last for ages. Did we mention it also smells like lavender? Love. Best drugstore brush cleaner Makeup Brush Cleanser, £4.99 from Superdrug – buy here This brush-sanitising spray should be an essential in every beauty bag. Gives tools a disinfecting deep-clean with just a few spritzes, while also conditioning for silky-soft bristles. Use tissues to remove residue and continue until all dirt is removed. It’s suitable for synthetic and natural brushes, is vegan, and effective… All for under a fiver? We’re sold. Best brush cleaner liquid Best brush cleaner liquid Mac Brush Cleanser, £12 from Look Fantastic – buy here Get fresh brush fibres with this conditioning cleanser that beauty insiders love. As well as giving the tools a hygienic clean, the formula also protects your brushes and prolongs their life and performance. Do a quick spot-clean by stroking the brush over a tissue that’s been dampened with the cleanser. Or deep-clean by soaking the brush in a shallow layer of the cleaners for at least five minutes, taking care not to wet the bristle base. Rinse, reshape and dry. With its fast-acting air-dry formula, you won’t have to wait long until you can use your sparklingly clean brushes again. Best brush cleaner and dryer StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer, £39.99 from Boots – buy here You’ll wonder what you did before this nifty little gadget once you give it a whirl. If you need your brushes clean and dry in seconds, this electric product is it. All you need to do? Use one of the eight different sized silicon spindles to attach your brush to the device. Add a brush cleanser and water mix into the bowl (or keep it simple and use baby shampoo), and pop the device in. Turn it on and watch in awe as your makeup brush gets a wash and blow dry in seconds, leaving it ready to use again in seconds. Like it just stepped out of a salon. We love it. Best brush cleaner spray Best brush cleaner spray Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser, £14 from Look Fantastic – buy here Coming in a handy pump-action spray, this brush cleanser couldn’t be easier to use. Simply spritz onto each side of the brush and remove makeup build-up with a tissue until it’s got the all-clear. Keeps bristles soft AND comes in a large 236ml bottle so your spends go a long way.

Get the glow (Pictures: Body shop/Getty) Do you want a realistic post-holiday glow in seconds? Bronzer is the best way to warm up the skin and fake a summer glow all year round – minus the sun damage (not that we mind a moderate dose of vitamin D). Whether you’re after sun-kissed glow, looking to enhance a natural tan, or create contouring definition, there’s a bronzer to suit all skin tones. So we’ve picked the best powder, liquid and cream bronzer formulations from top beauty brands including Benefit, Chanel, Morphe and more. Here are our favourite bronzers so you can go ahead and get your glow on:   1. Morphe Glamabronze Face & Body Bronzer (Picture: Cult Beauty) This supersized bronzer from Morphe can be dusted over your face and body for a beachy glow, minus any burns or sandy toes. It has a gorgeous matte finish that can be built up and a soft texture, so there’s no chalky, dry feeling at all. Better yet, it comes in three shades – opt for Icon if you have fair skin and the shade Phenom works wonders on medium-to-deep skin tones. Morphe Glamabronze Face & Body Bronzer, £19, cultbeauty.co.uk   2. Benefit Hoola (Picture: Cult Beauty) This iconic bronzer should have a place in your makeup bag all year round. The boxed Hoola bronzer from Benefit is free from any tell-tale sparkle or shine and is now available in three new shades – Lite, Caramel and Toasted (hooray). Hoola original is great for contouring and washing across the lids. Whereas the shade Toasted has reddish-brown undertones, that looks especially gorgeous against dark skin tones. Did we mention this bronzer comes with a brush too? Benefit Hoola, £26, cultbeauty.co.uk   3. Lumene Invisible Illumination Watercolor Bronzer (Picture: Lookfantastic) We recommend adding Lumene Invisible Illumination Watercolor Bronzer to your beauty stash ASAP – especially if powders or creams just aren’t your thing. Inspired by the fresh-faced beauty of Nordic women, this liquid sheer bronzer, never looks cakey and importantly reflects light, leaving skin bright, healthy and dewy. The best bronzer yet for an effortless bronzed glow. Lumene Invisible Illumination Watercolor Bronzer, £22.50, lookfantastic.com   4. Nudestix Nudies Matte Bronze in Bondi Bae (Picture: Cult Beauty) This travel friendly stick bronzer from cult US brand Nudestix works a treat on your morning commute and provides a trip to Bondi Beach in just a swipe. The matte cream bronzer offers total control over application and has the perfect natural finish. And the swipe-on format also means it’s great as contour. Here at Metro.co.uk we recommend using a Beautyblender if you want to create a softer seamless finish. Nudestix Nudies Matte Bronze in Bondi Bae, £28, cultbeauty.co.uk   5. CHANEL Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base (Picture: Feelunique) We get that the price tag is a little discouraging, but your skin deserves CHANEL’s velvety bronzer. CHANEL Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base has orange undertones making it suitable for a variety of skin types. And it can be worn beneath or on top of makeup. For an overall glow gently sweep across your cheek bones, temples and forehead. CHANEL Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base, £40, feelunique.co.uk   6. Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer For that subtle I’ve-been-laying-out-all-day glow, Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer is a great option. We’ve been obsessed with the on-the-go stick products from Milk Makeup since the brand launched into the UK. But their Matte Bronzer is easily favourite. It blends in beautifully, doesn’t emphasise dry patches and covers large areas effortlessly for a believable tan, while the cream formula adds a little luminosity to the skin. Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer, £20.50, cultbeauty.co.uk   7. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder (Picture: The Body Shop) This butter-soft bronzer should be your go-to if you want to look like a bronze goddess for just £14. Rated an impressive 5 out of 5 stars online at The Body Shop, the honey-enriched bronzing powder offers a luminous golden glow without leaving your complexion muddy. The shimmer-free, pressed powder is available in five shades to suit even the palest skin tones. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder, £14, thebodyshop.com [metro-zone-post-strip] 8. Huda Beauty Tantour (Picture: Cult Beauty) Step-up your contour game with Huda’s Tantour cream-to-powder contour and bronzer. The new release from beauty mogul Huda Kattan, will sculpt your cheekbones to perfection and add the perfect amount of bronze to your makeup look. The hyrbid powder is sweat and water-resistant and it’s incredibly long-lasting – perfect for warmer weather. Huda Beauty Tantour, £26, cultbeauty.co.uk   9. NARS Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer in Lauguna (Picture: Cult Beauty) The NARS Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer in Laguna is a luxurious classic. This finely-milled, satin-finish bronzer is buildable and lightweight, melting comfortably into the skin and giving it a natural sun-kissed glow. And thanks to its ‘Soft Blurring Technology’ skin looks healthier and imperfections are diffused. NARS Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer, £31, cultbeauty.co.uk   10. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Diffused Bronze Light (Picture: Cult Beauty) A slightly pearlescent finish helps bronzer look more natural and part of the skin. Enter Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Diffused Bronze Light, that gives tired lacklustre skin an instant soft-lit glow thanks to its Photoluminescent Technology. It’s marbled, luxurious and best yet, it’s universally flattering. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Diffused Bronze Light, £45, cultbeauty.co.uk [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/09/make-beauty-routine-sustainable-eco-friendly-9464684/” title=”Sustainable beauty: Best tips on how to make your beauty routine more eco-friendly”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/01/huda-beauty-n-y-m-p-h-liquid-highlighter-will-give-glow-life-9373467/” title=”Huda Beauty N.Y.M.P.H liquid highlighter will give you the glow of your life”]
