Professional make-up manufacter Kryolan have introduced Brush Soap (£18.50), a must-have luxury brush cleanser for all MUAs and anyone who regularly uses brushes for applying make-up.  Layers of make-up, mixed with pigments and the oil from the skin, make brushes a breeding ground for bacteria.  Following the launch of Kryolan Brush Cleaner designed for an intense brush cleaning on studio shoots and film sets, the new Brush Soap offers more of a luxury deep clean and conditioning treatment for brushes.  Infused with thyme extract known for its natural anti-bacterial properties and natural orange peel oils to dispel grease build-up, the Brush Soap not only leaves bristles super clean, soft and supple, but with a fresh citrus aroma.  Ideal to use as a deep clean treatment, Brush Soap is vegan friendly with no artificial fragrances.  Available from kryolan and screenface.


ARTDECO have a launched Twist for Volume Mascara (£18.90) with a rotating brush with two settings – one to reach short lashes, lengthen and separate and the second to give volume and bounce.  Both can be combined during application.  The mascara is smudge-proof and long-lasting and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

The ARTDECO Waterproof Maker (£11.80) makes every mascara smudgeproof and waterproof.  The transparent mascara top coat envelopes the lashes and extends the durability of the mascara underneath. For a natural finish, the quick-drying, light gel can be applied alone. The paraben and fragrance-free Waterproof Maker is also suitable for shaping eyelashes or fixing eyebrows in place.

Both available from feelunique.
