Beauty Tools I Cannot Live Without

As a teenager, I would always steal my sister's pink pair.

I am obsessed with my eyebrows.  And I despise falling into strange lighting in an elevator only to catch glimpses of stray hairs that I have missed.  Ooh, it gets me so crazy.  The best on the market are Tweezerman Tweezers – an Allure fan favourite.  The slanted edges make plucking less ouch and its tiny size are great for travelling.

Do you believe in magic? Nars Bronzer Brush, cheaper than a spray tan or a trip to Mexico!

A little bronzer goes a long way, especially if you use a chubby bronzer brush.  I don’t have a particular favourite brand, however, I never leave home without bronzing up the apples of my cheeks, my nose, chin and slight brush all over (where natural sunlight hits your face).  Otherwise, I would look like an extra from The Walking Dead (ahem, a zombie if you didn’t get my pop culture reference).

MAC 219 Pencil Brush. Good enough for makeup artists and drag queens everywhere

If you are going to invest money in makeup brushes, I firmly believe that M.A.C. has the best ones out there.  Because I like to create sexy eyes on a daily basis, I swear by MAC 219 Pencil Brush.  After applying a pencil eyeliner to my top and bottom lashline,  I tap this brush gently into a chocolate eyeshadow and blend for a smokey effect.   

Be not afraid of Smokey Eye! Just beware, if you sport these to work, NOBODY will get any work done.

I’m a self-confessed lover of MAC products and recently purchased their mineralize foundation ($33) and the brush with which to apply the product ($33) Damn expensive for a brush, but it works miracles!!!
