Must Have Beauty Tools And Accessories
As many of you know, over the last few months I have been more focused on beauty and health related issues both here on the blog and on my social media. Since my health has been taxed lately I have had to conserve my energy, and the fashion posts in general just take far more time and energy to work on. Since I have been trying so many things, I have some great products to share with you. So I thought it was time to do a top ten post for you. These are things I have tried and fell in love with.
This makeup case is perfect for anyone who is either a professional makeup artist or someone who finds themselves traveling with large amounts of makeup on any type of regular basis. The main area of the case is customizable to fit your needs. It has slotted moveable dividers. This was perfect for taking with me to the Steampunk Symposium. It made it so much easier to keep up with all my makeup. And its a great deal at only $34.89, half the price of anything similar I could find in local stores.
I have been doing so much organizing with my makeup. When it comes to eyeshadow singles, especially the ones from ColourPop, they can be a pain to figure out what to do with them. These Eyeshadow Organizers have been a lifesaver for that. And they do fit most ColourPop Eyeshadows Perfectly. Each organizer holds 16 shadows.
This smokey eye brush set from The Vintage Cosmetic Company has quickly become some of my favorite brushes to use for eye makeup. They are intended for smokey eye looks, but they can be used a lot of ways including cut creases. Not only are these brushes a favorite, but a lot of products from this company are a favorite as you will see.
This has become my favorite blending sponges. I have tried lots of different brands of from the top brand Beauty Blender all the way down to some of the cheapest sponges I could find at the Dollar Store. This blending sponge from The Vintage Cosmetic Company is really the best of both worlds when it comes to quality versus price. The quality is very similar to the coveted Beauty Blender, but with the price coming in between $4.00 to $8.00 depending on where you buy them from it is a relief on the wallet. I highly recommend checking out all the products from The Vintage Cosmetic Company. I have tried a lot of their products, and love them. The two shared are just my favorites. But if you love the vintage look and style you will definitely love this company.
I personally got tires of wasting paper towels just for laying out makeup brushes to dry on after cleaning them. This drying rack will save so much money and trees over time. You have to put it together yourself, but it is super easy to do.
I have only recently started even attempting to do anything with my eye brows. This is mainly because I have always had thick brows that I liked the shape of. But now that I am getting older, my brows have started to thin as well as getting some grays in the mix. In my journey of trying various brow grooming products, I have discover most of them that are designed for trimming your brows are kind of difficult to use and they require a steady hand. However, this particular pair of scissors from Litfly makes things so much easier. The comb guard on one side almost guarantees that you can’t cut your brow hairs down too far and that they will all look even. And because the comb and scissors are built into one, its one less tool to deal with.
I have actually reviewed this mask cover for you guys before, and if you would like you can check that review out here. I highly recommend these for anyone who does sheet masking a lot.
Maybe you are more into doing face masks. If you do masks a lot, this may be the tool you want in your life. As great as doing a face mask can make your skin feel, there is always such a mess and constantly having to clean up after application and then again after taking it off. Using one of these silicone brushes for applications not only cuts down on the mess but makes the application itself easier.
So yes, these are technically pencil holders, not a beauty accessory. But they do make for a perfect makeup brush holder. They come in several color options, they are nicely weighted so they don’t tip over easy, and they are about half the price of anything marked to be for beauty products. This is one of those times thinking outside the box pays off.
If you are all about that skin care life, you have to try some of the five layer cotton sheets from a Korean brand. The ones I have so far that I like the best are these from Tony Moly and one from another brand called Huxley. Huxley is a little harder to find though, and pricier. If you have only been exposed to the facial cotton wipes in American drug stores you probably are a little confuses as to why anyone would recommend these as a must have. Its one of those things that honestly till you try it you probably won’t believe it. And just about any Korean bran facial cotton is a step up from the ones you get in America, but if you were comparing the American one to these five layer cottons, its like going to a fast food restaurant versus a five-star fine dining restaurant. No comparison really. The quality is better. No lint at all on these five layer cottons. And each cotton can be pulled apart and used as two separate cottons. So it’s really like getting 80 in this box. No way can you do that with any American facial cotton I have ever tried. Once you have tried these, you will never want to go back.
