A comprehensive beauty toolkit makes the art of skincare, makeup and styling your locks that much easier.
Here are some of the best tools to either raise your look, cut down your getting-ready time or get your better results…
The makeup brush drying tower
Be honest, how often do you put off cleaning your makeup brushes? Well, there’ll be no more procrastinating with this handy tool that allows you to wash and dry your brushes in no time. Lather up on the outside of the tool, then hang to dry using the nifty contraptions inside and out. Genius.
Sigma Dry N Shape Brush Tower Face & Eyes, £34.95
The nail polish holder
If you’ve ever knocked over your polish, or spilled the contents over yourself while trying to paint a mani then this tool is well worth it. You wear it like a ring, pop your polish in the holder and enjoy your smoothest, easiest DIY mani yet.
Tweexy Nail Polish Holder, £12.95
The ti-tech toothbrush
Oral health is as much a part of your beauty regime as cleansing, toning and moisturising, but despite the 100% plaque removal and sonic cleaning that helps keep teeth whiter, we love the look of this hi-tech gadget. It’s available in several shades, but perhaps our favourite is this gorgeous amethyst version.
Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean, £115
The facial massager
If you love a facial, but can’t fit them in as regularly as you’d like, this tool gives you some of the magic in those therapist’s fingers, in the comfort of your own home. The simple-to-use tool allows you to increase blood flow, give yourself a lifting massage and tone the skin. Plinky-plonky spa music optional…
Sarah Chapman Skinesis The Facelift, £25
The deep-down face cleanser
Getting skin deep-down clean is one way to ensure it looks fresh, healthy and flawless. The sonic vibrations of this silicone brush helps dislodge and remove any congestion that could lead to breakouts or skin looking dull and lacklustre. Plus, there are over 300 uses in just one single charge – making it a high-performance, low maintenance addition to your beauty tool kit.
Foreo LUNA mini Skincare Device, £85
The pro-approved hairdryer
2016 has been a year of significant innovations in the beauty market, and Dyson’s hairdryer is another hi-tech tool that makes getting ready a whole lot easier. The breakthrough is the Digital Motor V9 that allows the device to dry hair six times faster than ordinary dryers. If you like a lie-in in the morning, this could easily buy you one to two ‘snoozes’ on your alarm. Sure, it’s almost £300, but it’s 100% worth the investment. One for the Christmas wish list?
Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer, £299.99
The light-up mirror
Doing makeup in poor light can lead to a style that looks far from polished. Shedding some light on the issue can really help get your makeup on fleek.
