To apply makeup like a pro, you need the right makeup tools. Not sure where to start? Get yourself a collection of high-quality makeup brushes for eyes and face, including foundation brushes. (Sigma brushes are fan favorites.) Don't forget to pick out a brush cleaner and use it regularly. Makeup sponges can also be helpful—beautyblender makes great ones for contouring and highlighting. For your eyes, eyelash curlers really do add extra oomph. And of course, it's much easier to do your makeup when you can see well! Lighted makeup mirrors from simplehuman and more are a big help. You'll also want a compact for touchups on the go.
