Review - EcoTools Brushes - 5-Piece Mineral Brush Set

EcoTools makeup brushes: Part 2 - Sets

Last time I reviewed EcoTools Singles Brushes, today I am going to share my thoughts on the 5 Piece Mineral Brush Sets I own.
I've heard about this set on YT and wanted to try them out. After reading so many positive reviews I've ordered these brushes online from iherb and lately from eBay. I'm very glad I did because I was very pleased with the quality and price!

DIY Mineral Make up - Tools and Ingredients

Titanium Dioxide
If your skin is acne prone or sensitive to commercial make up and go "naked" is not your choice, you may want to try making your own Homemade MMU cosmetics. You can decide what ingredients are used and how it’s prepared. You’ll know what’s in your foundation, lipstick, eyeshadow and how your skin will respond to each ingredient. And you don’t have to be a chemist, you can read-up and learn. 
There are so many resources on how to make your own MMU products. The best advice would be to look at the ingredients and read-up about them.
I thought that I might share my notes on some of them.

Сделай сам - Супер-увлажняющая гелевая маска с экстрактами водорослей


Link to the English version of this Recipe can be found at the end.
Всем привет и с Новым Годом!:)
Сегодня мы будем делать интенсивно увлажняющую гелевую маску для лица, с успокаивающими, освежающими и регенерирующими компонентами. Это замечательная маска, я пользуюсь ее разными вариациями уже несколько лет и она всегда мне помогает. Гелевая маска подходит чувствительной и склонной к высыпаниям коже, поры не забивает: не содержит масел и их производных, раздражающих ароматизаторов и консервантов.

Homemade Intensive Hydrating Facial Mask with Seaweed Extracts

Hello guys! Happy New Year :)
Today we are going to make an Intensive Hydrating Gel based Mask that calms and pulls moisture into the skin without making it feel greasy. I have been using different variations of this mask for years and I have always liked it. It's a great mask! Not heavy, oily or irritating. Just light, fresh, natural and effective! It is also good for sensitive and acne prone skin: fragrance free, oil free and preservative free and will not clog your pores (contains only none-comedogenic ingredients).
