Makeup Tools and Accessories

If you are looking to ramp up your makeup routine, adding some new tools and accessories to your product arsenal can be a huge benefit. There are a wide variety of options to choose from, such as brushes, sponges and mirrors, all of which will take your makeup looks to new heights—whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional. Many of these tools are the perfect complement to just about any makeup product, such as foundation, eye shadow and lipstick.

Makeup Brushes

Makeup brushes are often thought of as the hallmark of makeup tools. It is just about impossible to put on a full face of makeup without using at least one brush. But not all makeup brushes are equal. Brushes come in a wide range of types, varying by shape, size and bristle type. Some brushes are universal and can be used for many different types of makeup and areas on the face. On the other hand, there are very specific brushes that work best with particular makeup and areas. For example, eye shadow brushes are smaller, whereas foundation and bronzer brushes are much larger and fluffier.

Makeup Sponges

Makeup sponges are yet another makeup accessory that is crucial to have on hand in order to create the most natural and flawless look with your makeup. Sponges are particularly useful with face makeup, such as foundation, concealer and other creams. Blush and bronzer can also even be applied using sponges. Some sponges come in a particular shape for precise application, while others come as a general oval shape that can be used from many angles for an overall smooth look.

Makeup Mirrors

Without makeup mirrors, it would be virtually impossible to apply any makeup whatsoever. Such makeup mirrors come in a variety of shapes and sizes to make them as versatile as possible. There are small handheld mirrors, or compacts, that you can tote around in a small purse or bag. There are also standing mirrors that you can put atop a dresser or desk. And finally, there are hanging mirrors for a larger area to use for makeup application.

Makeup Tool Kits

Makeup tool kits are incredibly useful, especially for beginners, in order to get your hands on all of the necessary tools and accessories for makeup application. Tool kits often come with multiple brushes, sponges, a compact and other tools such as metal palettes to use for blending. Once you have these items in your makeup closet, the possibilities are endless.
