Eyelash Curler

Eyelash Curler It doesn’t have to be high tech or super expensive, but a good eyelash curler is one of the hands-down best make-up tools you can buy. I have one of those metal ones you can get for a couple bucks at the drugstore and it has lasted me for many, many years. In fact, I can’t even remember when I bought it. However, I use it every day, right before I apply my mascara. I curl before because it keeps the curler from getting gunky, but also because it helps the curl last all day. Grab yourself an eyelash curler and you’ll see what I mean when I say that your eyes will look bigger when you take the time to curl your lashes.


Wedge Sponges

Wedge Sponges I swear by these magical little gems! They are the perfect shape for applying flawless foundation. I get them at the drugstore for a just a couple dollars and since you can use them on both sides, they’ll last you for several months. They’re much better than cotton make-up applicators because they don’t absorb the product as much, which leaves you more for your face and it creates less waste and saves you money.


Eye Shadow Brush

Eye Shadow Brush Most eye shadow compacts come with an applicator. However, most make-up experts recommend using a brush instead. It gives you a bit more control over the application process and it allows for an even spread of eye shadow over your entire eyelid. At the same time, it makes it effortless to blend more than one color if you tend to layer on a couple shades.


Magnification Mirror

Magnification Mirror It might sound scary, but a magnification mirror lets you see everything on your face up close and personal. That’s great when you need to pull a stray hair, but it’s also ideal for getting a flawless application of your make-up. A magnification mirror can help you perfectly blend your eyeliner or spot eye shadow dust on your cheeks that needs to be taken care of.



Tweezers Tweezers top the list of make-up essentials for many big name make-up artists. That’s because they’re perfect for grabbing stray hairs, shaping the brows or cleaning up lip fuzz before applying make-up. Pair yours with your magnification mirror and you’ll be hair-free and fabulous in no time.


Blush Brush

Blush Brush I’m talking about one of those big, fluffy ones here. You probably want one that’ll fit in your make-up bag, but a big blush brush is a lifesaver. It’s way better than those tiny little brushes that come in blush compacts because you can get your blush all over with one swipe, which ensures an even application and a more precise hand.


Pencil Sharpener

Pencil Sharpener A pencil sharpener is a must-have for keeping your eyeliner pencils sharp and pointy. A dull one makes it harder to get a straight, even line, but a sharp eyeliner works every time. Invest in a two-hole version so you can also easily sharpen your eye shadow pencils too.

What make-up tool could you never live without? Please add any I missed to the list.
