If you are a makeup lover then you know that makeup accessories are the most important to your full face beat. If you are going to be looking and feeling your best then you’ll need some makeup materials that will ensure that once you lay down a pretty face it will stay, slay and definitely not cake.
Some of these accessories are necessary for your makeup mess ups and others are there to avoid a mishap. You don’t need all of them, but most of them are must haves that without, you could be creating a face that won’t have a life expectancy of up to twelve hours. We all know those days when our makeup fades, greases up, or pulls apart way too easily! With some of these accessories you can avoid that withdrawal and stay flashing the haters with a gorgeous face all day.
1. Spoolie Brush
The brush you find at the end of your eyebrow pencil is a total neccessity, and not only for your perfect looking eyebrows. Even though it has its use in giving you natural appearing brows, and some help creating those faux natural bushes, you can use a spoolie brush to clean up some mini messes.
Say you get too much mascara clumped up on your bottom lashes. Let them fully dry and then go in with a spoolie to move them around, and create a less clumpy look for your eyelashes. That way you can walk out of the house not looking like a spider.
When you accidently swipe some mascara across you nose, face, or above your eyes you can immediately feel like all the hard work you put into your face is over and done with. Not so fast, wait until the mascara fully dries on your face. Take the clean spoolie brush and wipe away at the mascara marks. Before your eyes is a clean mask drawn to filth without any filth in sight. I promise, you are going to need a spoolie for any and all mascara mistakes.
2. Cute Headbands and Hair ties
When you are doing your makeup and hair gets in your face it can be annoying, and downright frustrating. That is why spending some hard earned money on a satin hair tie or a cute headband can make for a better hair situation while doing makeup. With satin hair ties, you can take out a bun or pony tail without the added bump in your hair. That way you can go about your day after doing your makeup looking fresh and fine.
A headband is one of my personal favorites for pushing hair out of the face during a makeup session. With a cute headband I feel adorable even before baking, setting, or applying anything. It adds just a bit more fun to your makeup application.
3. Pressed Powder, Powder, Powder
You need to keep a pressed powder in your purse for touch ups! Because both you and God know that makeup is not perfect and it will have a rough time lasting all day long as you do your errands, homework, and stressful class presentations. Especially if your face gets greasy, there is added chance for your foundation to break apart.
You don’t have to spend too much money on a powder, the Maybelline Fit me translucent pressed powder is a great option to a little touch up, even for baking. If you want to spend a little extra money, The Charlotte Tillbury pressed powder is amazing and definitely a must have splurge!
4. Beauty Blender Sponges (Plural Honey)
If you thought one beauty blender was enough, well think again! You can use one beauty blender for doing your face in the morning, another one for touch ups, and another one specifically for applying highlight. You heard right, applying your highlight with a beauty blender. It gives a great, toned down, but still natural and shining glow to the face. If that’s the kind of highlight you want then you should without a doubt blend it out with a beauty blender. Once you use this technique it will become a staple in your everyday makeup routine.
5. Brush Bath From It Cosmetics
When you need to quickly wash off the powder or eyeshadow on a brush, the brush bath from It Cosmetics can help! It quickly cleans away any eyeshadow or powder on your brush so that you can use it and dip into another pan. If you aren’t a makeup artist and you don’t have a ton of eyeshadow brushes, then using this technique and brush bath can really help out. We’ve all been there when we use our favorite eyeshadow brush with one color and then realize we want to use it again with another color. That is why purchasing the eighteen dollar bottle from Ulta will be the most worth it move. They have a smaller version to try out first before dipping into the bigger bottle. If you love it, then it will become your brushes best friend in makeup application.
6. Several Setting Sprays
I love having two setting sprays on deck at all times. I love the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray as it works wonders to help keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the day! I notice a big difference when I don’t use this specific setting spray. My makeup cracks and greases up on my face quicker and it doesn’t look freshly applied.
The second setting spray that I absolutely love and believe is a total must have aside from the All Nighter is the Morphe setting spray for fifteen dollars! Half of the UD one, though totally different. It probably won’t last as long as the UD spray but the Morphe setting spray comes out in a fine mist like hairspray that clings to the face. It helps your makeup appear fresh and not so powdery, it can also help you to glow, one thing the UD spray does not help with. I spray some on my face before highlight application and voila, the highlight always appears brighter and smooth. If you haven’t checked out this setting spray yet, I suggest you should! It is one accessory you really cannot go without.
