Must Have Beauty Tools And Accessories

top ten beauty tools and accessories

top ten 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.

1. Professional Make up Storage Case With straps for Travel


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.

 

2. Acrylic Eyeshadow Organizer

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.

 

3. The Vintage Cosmetic Company Smokey Eye Brush Set

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.

 

4. Beauty Blending Sponge Infused With Vitamin E from The Vintage Cosmetic Company

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.

 

5. 15 Hole Square Makeup Brush Drying Rack

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.

 

6. Eyebrow Scissors from Litfly

Eyebrow Scissors from Litfly

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.

 

7. Reusable Silicone Mask Cover

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.

8. Silicone Face Mask Brush

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.

 

9. EasyPAG Round Floral Pencil Holders

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.

10. Tony Moly – 5-Layer Cotton Sheet (400pcs)

Tony Moly five layer facial cottons

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.

Product Review – The Daiso Silicone Sheet Mask Cover


This review is for the Daiso Reusable Silicon Sheet Mask Cover. I have had mine for about a month now, and have lots of time to use it with different types of masks. I initially was not planning on reviewing this product but I was asked to by a couple of Instagram followers who saw the picture I posted of mine when it first came in. So I am more than happy to give my thoughts on it.

First off they tell you the color you receive is random, which is fine but it is also true. As you can see the one pictured above is a pinkish color, and the one I received was completely clear.

2016-08-06 02.06.09If you are complete sheet mask addict like me, you may already know about these and know what they are for. But for those of you who aren’t familiar, lets take a look at what the company says about them:

A super hit “mask cover” maked of elastic silicon, which is comfortable to skin, re-usable. It comes with ear loops to keep the mask in place. There are 3 ways that you can use the mask. How to use (a) wrapping effect – wear over a sheet mask, it prevents mask essence from evaporating, helps reserve the maximum amount of essence for skin nourishment, (b) keep in position – wear with the ear loops to prevent the mask from slipping off when you move and so you can do more things than ever rather than resting, (c) use in bath-use in bath without a sheet mask, it works as a face steaming mask for relaxing purpose to re-use it, simply wash and keep it clean after used.

Let me say first that I don’t think points A and B are necessarily two separate things as they are saying, but that was okay for me. I mainly ordered this for the freedom of walking around while using a mask. If you are a casual sheet mask user it probably isn’t a big deal, but when you use them five nights a week it can sometimes be inconvenient to have to stop and lay down for ten to thirty minutes every night.

I was a little concerned based on some peoples comments saying that some brands of these can run really small (just like sheet masks do) and that they didn’t fit their faces or they were so tight that the straps hurt their ears. This was a concern for me because I have a larger than average head size for a woman, I can never find hats that fit me. Only select brands of sheet masks fit me just right. Most range from just a tad too small to way too small that its funny. However I am happy to report that this one fit perfectly fine. As you can see it does fit snugly, but that is what you want it to do to hold everything in place.

And for anyone who is wondering where I got them, you can check out my previous post about where I get my headbands that I use for my beauty routine.

I can’t really offer any opinions on using it as a steaming mask as I do not get to take baths on the regular. Our tubs are just not deep enough, so I am stuck showering. However I may give it a try at least once the next time I take a vacation.

I can talk about the wrapping effect though. This does work quite well for extending the wear of your mask. Its really important to not let them get too dry on your skin because it can start to actually leach the moisture back out of your skin if it does. This mask cover keeps your sheet mask from getting dry for quite a while.

I have found that for me it works best with cream type essence masks or ones that are just made for soothing the skin. I didn’t personally care for using it with anything containing hyaluronic acid as it takes away the cooling tingling effect you often get with that type of sheet mask, at least that was my experience. I also found it was best to avoid using this on especially hot days as it does get a little warm from holding in the body heat.

It is really easy to clean. If I used it with a watery essence based mask then I just rinse it with water and wipe it off. But if I have something more substantial on the mask then I just use a tiny bit of face wash to wash it with and again just rinse it and wipe it off. I then always hang it up on a hook just to make sure if I missed wiping any of the water off it will have a chance to air dry.

So is this a must have product? I think it really falls into a question of your beauty routine. If you use sheet masks three times or more a week its probably a must for you. However if you use it less often its probably less necessary and its more up to whether you just want to give it a try. Its probably great for the person who never has a spare minute to sit down to use a sheet mask but really wants to.

Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. So tell me, who else has tried this? Were you happy with yours? Did you get the same brand?
