I don’t really see many posts about essential beauty tools, besides brushes and sponges. So, I figured why not contribute mine. Something being essential is very different from person to person, today I will just be discussing mine.
Tweezers are good for so many things. Plucking stray brow hairs, plucking out the occasional oddly placed, dark facial/neck hair. But, for a pair of tweezers to be useful, they obviously have to be good quality. My favorite are Emite Makeup Tweezers, $25.
Obviously, they do not have to be pricey to be good, but these are the best that I have found thus far.
Some people say lash curlers make no difference, I personally swear that they do. My all time favorite lash curler is the ELF Mechanical Eye Lash Curler. It is only $2 at Target! The little rubber pieces are replaceable, it is $1 for a 4 pack.
Small hair trimmers. Sometimes I am too lazy to pluck my brows, this is a quick way to groom them, and still be able to be precise. The Remington one, which is the one I prefer, has a nose hair trimmer attachment. Everyone has nose hair, some of us just have an issue with it, I am guilty. This trimmer is $17.94 at Wal-Mart.
Super cheap and easy to find, tape. It can be used to guide liner and shadows, can act as an alternative to shadow shields, it can be used to create a really sharp contour, and people are starting to use it to assist in mess-free liquid lipstick application. I use it mostly when I am doing a sharp eye look.
This next one is different than the others, but it is a must use for me. logical harmony.
