Basic tools in your MAKEUP BOX

Makeup Brushes

Even the greatest of makeup in the world won't look great without the correct makeup tools. For a professional finish you need the right tools. This means investing in a set of good brushes and applicators. Here's your basic cosmetic tool kit.

1. Makeup Sponge

Have a wedge-shaped one, so you can use the finer edges to help blend in foundation round your nose and jaw line, while the flatter edges are great for the cheeks, forehead and chin. However, if you prefer not to use a synthetic sponge try the small, natural ones instead.

2. Powder Brush

Get used to using a powder brush each time you put makeup on. To prevent a caked or clogged finish to your face powder, use a large, soft brush to dust away any excess.

3. Blusher Brush

Use to add a pretty glow to your skin with a light dusting of powder blusher. A blusher brush is slightly smaller than a powder brush to make it easier to control.

4. Eyeshadow Brush

Smooth on any shade of eyeshadow with this brush.

5. Eyeshadow Sponge

An sponge applicator is great for applying a sweep of pale eyeshadow that doesn't need much blending or applying high lighter to your brow bones.

6. All-in-one eyelash brush/comb

Great for combing through your lashes between coats of mascara for a clump-free finish. Flip the comb over and use the brush side to seep your eyebrows into shape, or soften penciled-in brows.

7. Lip brush

Use to create a perfect outline for your lips and then use to fill in the shape with your lipstick.

8. Eyebrow Tweezers

It is essential to have a good pair of tweezers for regularly tidying up the eyebrows.

9. Eyelash curlers

Once used, they'll soon become a beauty essential! Curlier eyelashes make a huge difference to the way your lashes look and help open up the eyes.
