Beauty Beat. No Fail Makeup Tools To-Go!

September 17, 2010 • Beauty


When it comes to your daily makeup routine, it helps when you have the tools that make the process as easy as possible. Having the right tools is essential in creating the perfect makeup application, and it just makes sense!

There are a lot of great tools out there that are not too expensive that will give you a beautiful flawless application and one of them is the Beauty Blender. You will live by this little gem. Not any bigger than an actual large egg, some term this little sponge the 'Egg'. However, don't be gentle with this sponge, because it can whip your makeup into perfection. For the best and most precise application, dampen the sponge first, dip into your favorite foundation and blend, blend, blend. A little foundation, with this sponge goes a long way. Isn't that what we like. Less foundation, less money! That's why this sponge is a gem.

After your makeup application, choose from any of Sephora's Double-Ended Brushes, to finish your makeup application. From the powder brush to the lip brush, they have all the brushes covered for easy to use, space saving convenience.

Once complete with those tools, pick up an eyelash curler like Shu Uemura's Eyelash Curler. This is by far the best eyelash curler I have ever tried. Not only is it gentle on the eyes, but it curls, and makes my eyes pop like no one's business. It takes your lashes to another dimension, and actually makes you look like you had 10 hours of sleep. Do we ever get that?!

And before you think you are all done, don't forget those brows. Brows rule the face. A strong, groomed brow frames your face and gives you a polished look.Tarte's Eyebrow Kit, has everything you need to get your brows in tip-top shape. You can shape, pluck, groom and fill all in their tiny little kit.

There is no excuse for not having the right tools. It doesn't take much at all. Just toss these tools into your bag and you will always be ready to put your best face forward.
