April has arrived and though we’re all currently still staying at home, who says we can’t do our regular beauty routines? You can definitely treat yourself to some self-care at home with skincare items that nourish and brighten your complexion.

Ahead are some of the newest releases in makeup and skincare that will do the trick.
