makeup tools

Makeup tools include pretty much everything you can think of, from simple tools like the foundation brush to more complicated ones like the eyelash curler. And you most likely have that one tool you can’t live without, depending upon your makeup preferences.

If you’ve got long lashes, a lash comb is probably a lifesaver when it comes to applying mascara. Love eyeliner? The variety of eyeliner brushes on the market can help you easily create a wide range of looks. Or if you’re more of a bold lip gal, then a good lip brush is essential. Whatever your favorite may be, the following makeup tools have readers united: they are simply the best. For me, it’s my tweezerman, which is one of the 13 best makeup tools rated!

    Believe it or not I don’t have a single makeup brush *tools* I am trying to start getting them…but just haven’t I just go without them I guess I am missing out on a lot of gr8 tools!

  2. N.M. says:

    I don’t have any “tools”. I only have one crappy brush to apply powder. -sigh- I really need to buy me some…makeup tools…..

    It’s fine…I don’t have that many myself.

  4. sesame says:

    I have limited tools too but brushes would be nice to alternate in case you need to wash and it doesn’t dry.

    May I know where I can buy the Tweezerman in Singapore?


  6. sesame says:

    The shop that sold this no longer carries the brand. I’m not sure where you can find this in the retail outlets but if you run a search for tweezerman in Singapore, you can find a lot of sources online.

    I’ve recently learned the value of the makeup tools ? Definitely can not live without my stippling brush & kabuki brush anymore since I value natural finish (I only put SPF moisturizer and loose powder to set).
    On the tweezerman, I’ve just shopped here in Manila for a tweezer and found that Solingen (a very old German Brand) has quite good quality & cheap tweezers!

    Solingen? Oh, never heard of that but would be keen to check it out. I’m quite fond of certain makeup tools. ?
