NARS Ita Brush Dupe

As an Amazon Prime member and shopaholic, I have bought all kinds of makeup and skin care goodies online hoping that they will live up to their great reviews. Spoiler alert: this NARS Ita brush dupe did.

NARS ‘Ita’ Kabuki Brush

For a long time I lusted after the NARS ‘Ita’ Kabuki Brush, but at $55 I never could bite the bullet and actually purchase it.  I also had watched a video review where the girl talked about how badly the brush shed and how disappointing it was which made me decide it probably wasn’t worth the price tag.

How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

Today’s post and video are about everyone’s least favorite part about makeup- cleaning your brushes! In this video I show you 3 different ways that I clean mine. They are:

1. The Solid Beauty Blendercleanser retails for $16 so I recommend getting it in a value package with a beauty blender. For example you can get 1 beauty blender (typically $20) plus a full sized Solid Blendercleanser for $25.

Original Beautyblender with Solid Blendercleanser

Is the Solid Blendercleanser just an overpriced tiny bar of soap? Probably, but I used to rub my first beauty blender on a bar of Dove soap thinking it was the same thing and I tore it up VERY quickly which is why I purchased the Blendercleanser this time.

I also discovered how useful it was when I was traveling. I feel like vacation is the only time I have the opportunity to go ALL OUT with my makeup. Cleaning smokey jade eye shadow and glitter out of brushes is a must! It also won’t leak in your bag and you don’t have to worry about the TSA limits on carry-on liquids. Continue reading

Where I apply contour on my face to give it definition. This makes my forehead appear smaller, my cheek bones look more defined, my nose looks slimmer, my lips look bigger, and my jawline looks more defined.

How I Contour My Face

Hello Beauties- so I’d say it’s been a little less than 2 years since I learned how to properly contour. Before that I used to think why would I do that? I don’t need to put on stage makeup to go out? I just want to look tan so I’ll just put bronzer all over my face! I have since learned the error of my ways and while I’m not the World’s Best Contour Artist I can show you my tips.

Why contour?
