Beauty tools are the most underrated beauty product on the market. Everyone is always talking about the makeup but not a lot of people talk about the tools they use to apply it. And I feel like we need to shine some more light on them.
The tools we apply our products with are just as important as the products we’re applying. Tools can make a huge difference on how our makeup looks and I want to share the tools that have made the biggest difference in my routine.

I know you’ve heard a lot about beauty sponges but they really are wonderful. They’re very versatile and you can blend out pretty much anything with them. The secret to working with beauty sponges is dampening them before you go in with product, but you probably already knew that. There are a lot of good ones out there like the Beauty Blender or the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge. But, there are a few that aren’t as great, so beware of them.
Buffing brushes are the perfect tool to pack that makeup on. They blend well without absorbing much product and they also give a fuller coverage. I love them for foundation and cream products cause they blend everything seamlessly and I don’t waste much product. Morphe does really good ones but you can find these everywhere.
Duo Fiber Brushes
These are the complete opposite of buffing brushes. They’re designed to disperse minimal product and that is exactly why they’re amazing. They build up product like a dream and they’re very easy to handle. I use them with both cream and powder products. If you’re a beginner or just love natural makeup, duo fiber brushes are the way to go.
I know you’ve heard a lot about these too but they are simply a must in your collection. Blending brushes are great for simple looks all the way to more complex looks. They’re perfect for blending eyeshadow (duh) and they’re easy to work with. I recommend you have at least one big blending brush, one medium blending brush and one small blending brush. That way you can create a variety of looks depending on which one you use. These are very easy to get, since every single brush brand makes them.
I find that these are not as talked about as blending brushes but they’re just as important. Detail brushes are great for more intricate looks like cut creases but they’re also perfect for an everyday winged liner. They’re versatile which makes them perfect for pros or for everyday makeup wearers. I love Sigma and Mac for brushes like these but, yet again, you can find them everywhere.
There are people who don’t think lash curlers are important. I used to be one of them until I started using them often and noticed the difference they made on my lashes. Lash curlers are the best tool to make your lashes look their best all day long, especially if you have straight lashes. Now, there are a lot of them on the market but my favorite ones are the ones that don’t have a closure on the sides. I find them easier to reach all my lashes as opposed to a regular lash curler that doesn’t get all of them.
False Lash Applicator
This is a must-have! I don’t wear falsies very often but this is one of the most useful beauty tools I’ve ever invested in. This makes applying falsies incredibly easy. It’s mess free and perfect for applying false lashes on yourself or someone else. If you wear falsies every day you need a tool like this. If you rarely wear falsies you need it too! It will make your life so much easier, I promise.
