8 Makeup tools you should own for looking gorgeous
Just as a workman is next to useless without his tools, so is a girl’s makeup kit. You can have all the finest, most expensive makeup products in the world, but without the right makeup tools to apply your costly beauty products, you might just as well have not bothered. So, without further ado, here are eight makeup tools that no gorgeous girl should be without:
1. A good pair of tweezers
Not just any old pair of tweezers will do, you need a good pair of properly shaped eyebrow tweezers to do the job properly. Tweezers with a flat edge will make it easier to pluck your brows with precision and they won’t pinch your skin.
2. A compact mirror decorated with precious stones
A ‘decorated with precious stones’ part is obviously a joke, but honestly, you never know when and where you may need a quick touch up to your makeup, so be sure to pack a compact mirror. They’re inexpensive, easy to pack in your makeup bag or handbag and there will be times when you are out, that you will be glad you bought one.
3. An eyelash curler
An eyelash curler gives you that beautiful, eyes wide open look that guys just adore. Use it before applying mascara or just naturally, without even using mascara and it will give your lashes the appearance of being longer and give you that youthful, pretty look.
4. Eyebrow comb
Use an eyebrow comb before tweezing and it will make it easier to spot the hairs that need plucking. After that, you can use it to comb, neaten and style your brows and it will also be useful to remove any excess powder from your brows too.
5. Cotton swabs and Q-tips
Cotton swabs and Q-tips are great multipurpose tools for your makeup bag. You can use them to clean up mistakes with mascara or nail polish and you can use them in place of some makeup brushes, when you don’t want to carry your whole collection of brushes with you.
6. Eyebrow stencils
If you are not very artistic or unsteady of hand, then eyebrow stencils can be a life saver. You can usually buy them in sets of different shapes and sizes and all you do is apply the stencil over your brow, color in with brow powder or brow pencil, and you have the perfect shape.
7. Eyeshadow applicators
The little, sponge tipped applicators are just right for applying your eyeshadow, if you don’t like using brushes or you can get the larger, processional varieties, if you prefer, either way, it makes putting on the eyeshadow a really simple task.
8. Good quality makeup brushes set
We could make a list of twenty different types of makeup brushes if we wished, but instead, we recommend you to invest in a makeup brushes set. A good set of quality makeup brushes is well worth the investment. They will last longer and apply your makeup more smoothly and, if you look after them, they will look after you.
As a matter of fact, one of the best makeup tools that you always have with you is your own hands! You can use your fingers to apply foundation, concealer, lipstick, cream blush, eyeshadow, etc. Only make sure that your hands are clean, when you use them for makeup application.
