Makeup Tools every beauty junkie needs

Makeup Tools every beauty junkie needs

Tweezers - Top of my list of beauty tools you should own are a good pair of tweezers. Perfect for grabbing stray hairs, shaping brows, applying false eyelashes and more. Invest in a good pair like Tweezerman ones - They stay sharp for ages are so worth the money.

Eyelash Curlers - If you don’t have lash curlers then go out and buy some. Seriously.  Right now. Stop reading this and go but some. Lash curlers are life changing. You can pick them up for a couple of pounds or spend a little more on a good long lasting pair like the Shu Uemeua Eyelash Curlers. If you curl your lashes before applying mascara and you’ll see a huge difference in the way your eyes look. It helps make your lashes look longer, your eyes look bigger and fake longer lashes. An absolutely must in your beauty stash.

Magnifying Mirror - As scary as it seems to see your face up close, a magnification mirror can make a huge difference to how you apply makeup and see your skin. You can see stray hairs, blend your shadow out better and make applying eyeliner much easier. 

Pencil Sharpener - Keeping your eyeliners sharp and pointy is not only hygienic but makes application much easier. You’ll get cleaner more even lines and helps with application. I recommend getting a two holed one so you an sharpen the regular sized pencils and for eyeshadow or lip crayons. I have the Barry M one which has served me so well over the years. You dont need to spend a huge amount on one of these but they are a must.

  2. I can't do without tweezers and my eyelash curler. I only curl the lashes on my left eye since they're very straight compared to the other eye. Weeeeeird.

  3. Already having super curled lashes a lash curler would be pointless for me. Totally agree on the other items though! Although I would also add a retractable brush for sanitary touch-ups on the go.

  16. Love all these things - especially the scary magnifying mirror... I could literally sit in front of one for ages staring at every little thing. I have a small one at home but the ones in hotels with the lights around them make me strangely happy. Also... I don't have an eyelash curler... should probably try one but I've honestly been using a spoon. I know, sounds totally nuts but it's amazing.

  22. I need a better sharpener! My one doesn't sharpen pencils very well and they seem to break very easily too.
