The Beauty Tools You Always Need In Your Bag

You might find that carrying beauty staples like powder and lipstick are essential to maintaining your makeup look on the go, but including tools in your bag is just as important, if not more so! Even if it’s one of those days where you cannot be bothered with makeup, there are certain tools that come in handy when you least expect it. We found the five best tools from Tweezerman that will barely take up any space in your purse—and will save the day in unanticipated situations.

We know what you’re thinking—why not use a kabuki brush instead for powdering? While a bigger brush is good for dusting a light layer of translucent powder over freshly applied foundation, it’s not the best option when you need a quick touch-up. Tweezerman’s Blender Brush ($12.99) is the perfect size to get rid of any shine, blend blotchy eyeshadow, and dust away mascara flakes that may have fallen on your cheek during the day. Plus, if anything lands on your keyboard at work, you can easily dust it off with this brush. (Just make sure to wash it after!)

Point-Tip Tweezers

Considered the sharpest of all tweezers, these bad boys can grab even the tiniest of eyebrow hairs. Our favorite is the stainless steel Tweezerman Point Tweezer ($18.99) because they’re rust resistant and have the most precise points. Aside from plucking your hairs, these tweezers can be used for so many different things in everyday life. To name a few, you can remove splinters, clean debris underneath nails, and untangle delicate necklaces. As with a brush, we recommend cleaning it before every use.

Is it spring yet? Because I sure can’t wait for it to get here already. Give me all the bright colors, the sunshine and warm…Brow Scissors

They’re great for trimming your brow hairs, but they’re pretty versatile all around since they’re scissors. Tweezerman Brow Shaping Scissors & Brush ($16.59) are small enough to carry in your bag, but have large enough blades to cut packages, stray threads from clothing, and hangnails. The tweezers also come with a spoolie brush, which works well for removing any stubborn mascara smudges on your eyelids, exfoliating your lips, and calming down any of your fly-away hairs.

Magnification Mirror

Measuring at 3.4” by 0.4”, the Tweezerman Tweezermate 12X Magnification Mirror ($11.99) is as compact and practical as a portable mirror can be. With its optically correct 12X magnification feature, this sleek mirror works well for any precision tasks you need done while traveling. We’re talking tweezing to makeup application to contact lens insertion. It’s clear from edge to edge so you’ll be able to see everything up close and personal—you can practically examine every pore with this tool if you want!

Nail File

Last but not least, every woman needs a sturdy nail file in her bag. You never know when the edge of your nail will start to snag on everything, or—even more painful than a breakup—your nail breaks. Tweezerman Neon Hot Nail Filemates ($3.99) includes three colorful files in a travel-friendly size so you will always be prepared if tragedy strikes. You could also use it to rub away super glue on your skin and over pills on a sweater to get rid of fuzz. And as an added bonus, you can sharpen your tweezers with it by pulling it across the nail file a few times in the same direction.

If you do nothing else, purchase the BeautyBlender Original + Mini Solid Cleanser Kit ($20.99). This duo includes the genius teardrop-shaped makeup applicator that’s designed to minimize waste and give your complexion a flawless appearance. The rounded tip makes it easy to hone in on those problematic areas, like the corners of your nose and the inner corners of the eyes. The included cleanser is a solid substance that’s great to carry on the go—it removes excess residue and keeps your BeautyBlender pristine for longer (and it smells great, too!).

Ask anyone who maintains their brows at home: It can be tricky to get it right every single time. A good pair of tweezers can help! The Tweezerman Wide Grip Slant Tweezers ($15.99) makes it easier to achieve just the look you desire. The oversized grip provides a more comfortable tweezing experience, while the slant tip makes it easy to grip even the smallest, most stubborn hairs. (Bonus points for the fun purple color—it’s a great addition to any tool kit!)

A foundation brush is one of the most important tools you can add to your kit. The Glo Minerals Dual Foundation Camouflage Brush ($24.99) provides a great alternative to applying makeup with your fingers. This product hits the nooks and crannies beautifully, and the tapered end is ideal for expertly applying concealer beneath the eyes, in the corners of the nose, and other areas that don’t require a great deal of product.

It’s important to keep your makeup brushes clean, no matter how tedious a chore it might be. Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner ($13.99) makes it a bit more of a palatable process, thanks to its lightweight formula enriched with mild seaweed conditioner and grapefruit extract. It works on contact to wash away debris, oil, and grime that collect on brushes over time.

There’s nothing like a visit to the spa and a pampering pedicure. Let’s face it, though: sometimes life gets in the way, making it incredibly difficult to drop funds on a luxurious treatment. In the meantime, you can enjoy a DIY treatment with some help from the BioSwiss 5-Piece Pedicure Set ($7.95). It contains everything you need to achieve a gorgeous at-home pedicure, including nail clippers, a nail file, a nail brush, a pumice stone, and a pair of toe separators.

A great hairbrush is often the key to an amazing hair day. Just think about how awesome your mane looks when you leave the salon. It’s time to add your own high-end hair tools to the mix! The Bio Ionic BoarShine Brush Set ($37.99) includes BoarShine brushes in medium, large, and extra large sizes. Use them to achieve a smooth, sleek finish, add volume, and control frizz.

The Beauty Tools You Need Now – and How to Use Them

You know your way around a makeup bag. You can sort your mattes from your satins, your BBs from your CCs, your powders from your creams. Choosing the right products is one thing, but applying them the right way – and with the right brushes and tools – requires another sort of expertise. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find all of the implements you need to enhance your look and apply your makeup. Here, the beauty tools you need now, and how to use them like a pro!Slider_3_-_The_Best_Drugstore_Makeup_Brushes

My life changed when I added a foundation brush to my arsenal. The Glo Minerals Dual Foundation – Camouflage Brush ($24.99) is worth every penny. The tapered brush on one end is ideal for applying concealer to those hard-to-reach spots, like the corners of your nose or the inner corners of your eyes. Meanwhilemakeup-brushes, the wider, flat brush offers an exceptional way to apply foundation. For best results, pour makeup onto the back of your hand, dip the brush into your makeup, and apply to face, taking care to blend thoroughly. The end result is exceptionally flawless.

The key to perfect blush application is to choose the right brush. The bareMinerals Handy Buki Brush ($17.89) features a compact handle and a wide body. It’s sized just right for picking up a sufficient amount of color, and simply tapping it onto the apples of your cheeks in a swift motion will result in a fresh, natural glow. (Applied too much blush? Dust some translucent powder onto your cheekbones to dull the color a bit.)

Never underestimate the importance of a lip brush. Though it’s easy enough to slick on your lipstick straight from the tube, using the Glo glo-mienrals-lip-brushMinerals Lip Definer Brush ($14.99) allows for more precise, even application. It also comes in handy if you fill in your lips with pencil first; use the brush to neatly apply color directly on top without missing a spot.

 

 

Where has this been all of our lives? The Tweezerman Power Nail Clipper ($5.99) was designed with convenience in mind. It features a lengthy handle with a sturdy grip, as well as sharp blades to provide a more even cut. Made with stainless steel, it’s the perfect addition to your makeup bag.

It’s one of the biggest beauty faux pas imaginable, yet it’s a crime we continue to commit without fail. Ladies, wash your makeup brushes! Neglecting this simple and very necessary habit will result in grimy brushes coated in makeup, dirt, debris, and oil. Now just imagine running those unkempt brushes on your face every day. Ew, right? The solution: Spritz your brushes with Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleanser ($13.99). The formula dries quickly and leaves brushes as good as new.
