- Multitasking brush – if you aren’t very “makeup types” and find maintaining brushes a pain, this one is really something you want to invest in . The small brush has a flat rounded tip that could be used for concealers, lip filling and even eyeliner and the big could be used for foundation blending, loose powder, blusher etc.
- Wedges /sponges/beauty blenders – don’t apply your liquid foundation with your hands, a smooth sponge instead with small pores, as sponges with large pores soak up a lot of foundation.
- Cotton swabs – also called Q-tips, this multi use beauty tool helps clean mascara/liner mistakes and also helps in application of eye shadows, kajal, concealer and other cosmetics. Perfect for travelling.
- Eyelash Curler – This tool can do wonders and really help open your eyes . Even on your ‘no makeup’ days, you could just use the curler and it would really improvise the look of your eyes without making it look made up at all.
- Eye shadow applicators –if you aren’t really brush savvy you could stick with the sponge tip eye shadow applicators as they are much more convenient to use.
- Your fingers – Yeayieee ! The most inexpensive tool and something we all already have it at home. When applying make-up though, your hands must be clean and dry. The ring finger is great for applying shadows, glosses, concealers and just about anything.
- Mascara Wands – Not only do they help when the wands of your mascara wear out but also helps well in brushing out eyebrows by giving them a very sleek look.
- Blotting Paper- These are a rather inexpensive one and work amazingly to soak excess oil from the skin, even after your makeup is done and you see oil build up, blot that oil away and let your makeup look as fresh as applied …well almost.
