The old faithful Brush cleansers (that take forever to dry). The new guard Sephora Collection Color Switch by Vera Monda Brush Cleaner ($23). Glide a makeup brush over this rough, dry sponge in between shadows to remove pigment. It contains tiny pores that pull powder from your brush, allowing you to transition from neon night-out makeup to daytime taupe easily. It’s perfect for that 24-step eyeshadow tutorial you’ve bookmarked on YouTube for Halloween this year. The old faithful Perching on your bathroom counter for a good mirror view. The new guard The Simplehuman 5” Sensor Mirror in Rose Gold ($150) has a sensor that detects when you are entertaining your vain side and
automatically lights up when you approach, simulating natural light so you know exactly what your foundation will look like outside. It gives a 10x magnified close-up view—ideal for plucking stray brow hairs or getting your cat eye just right. It also folds up if you need to tuck it away when your Tinder date comes over for the first time. The only thing missing? Daily affirmations that you are, indeed, the fairest of them all. The old faithful Your kinda sus face cloth. The new guard Luna Play by Foreo ($49). Shake up your skincare with this small silicone facial-cleansing device that vibrates and pulsates as you wash your face. The combination of the vibration and the silicone bristles helps clean your skin deeper than you scrolled on your ex’s Instagram feed last night. The side with thicker bristles works best on oily skin, while the finer bristles are ideal for those with a sensitive complexion. For details, see Shopping Guide. The old faithful Your mom yelling at you to get out of the sun. The new guard My UV Patch by La Roche-Posay. To avoid coming home from vacay with an embarrassing (and painful) burn, try this personal UV-monitoring patch. With cutting-edge adhesive technology, it sticks to skin and monitors how much sun exposure you’re getting. Photosensitive dyes change colour when the patch is exposed to UV rays and will have you seeking more shade than a Kardashian sub-tweet. Scan your patch using the My UV Patch app for in-depth info on your exposure.
