Tools Of The Trade We brush up your knowledge on basic makeup tools.

Makeup tools are key for flawless makeup application. These come in many shapes and sizes like brushes and sponges, tiny hardware like eyelash curlers and tweezers. It's perfectly normal to be boggled on which tool does what so we decided to create this quick guide to finally put your questions to rest.

To brief you in this lesson, there are brushes specifically made for each part of the face. Eyeshadow brushes generally have pressed dome-shaped bristles. Face brushes are dense and big enough to cover a large area when dusting powder. Blush brushes are more tapered than powder brushes to target the apples of your cheeks seamlessly. Natural bristled brushes are best for powder makeup while synthetic bristles are great to work with creams and liquids.

Sponges also come in various forms and they are not just made for patting powder or foundation. They can be pretty useful for your whole makeup application. Tweezers and eyelash curlers are necessary eye-openers and we truly believe every girl must own them!
