One of the best things I have ever done for my skin is to buy a Clarisonic Mia 2. I never feel like my face gets cleaned when I was with my hands. I have always felt the need to do something more. I had been researching the Mia 2 and finally decided to get one. After using it I can tell that it is going to make a difference in my face. My pores don’t look clogged and my skin is just all around softer and looks better. Definitely worth the buy and I would recommend it to anyone!

The second coat of your mascara will attach to the powder for a longer, fuller look, as if you had false lashes!
The above picture describes what each makeup brush is used for. It’s best to use brushes when applying your makeup and not your hands. Your skin on your face is very fragile. When your pulling and tugging on the skin on your face you tend to create premature wrinkles and cause your skin to fall a lot faster than it should. The brushes are a lot easier on your skin and give your makeup a different finish that if you were to apply with your hands.
