If you’re ready to step up your makeup game, we’ve rounded up the must-have items that your toolkit needs to level up to pro status. The products you’re using might be delivering just as promised, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need a few pick-me-ups to give your makeup routine an upgrade.
Supersize storage: MyKitCo. My Travel Buddy
More than just a case for travel, this expandable makeup bag is roomy enough to store your entire makeup (and brush) collection. Each compartment contains removable cases and pouches so you can keep your products perfectly protected.
A second brush set: MyKitCo. Electro Brush Set
Want a flashier set of makeup brushes to go alongside your old favourites? This set is bound to brighten up your collection – it comes with a sculpting brush, setting brush, eyeshadow brush, spoolie, angled precision brush, and a fan brush – everything you need to double up when you cover the basics.
The MUA essentials: MyKitCo. Deluxe Puffs
Sometimes brushes just don’t cut it when it comes to applying powders. For a full coverage finish that lasts, pat these over your face to deliver loose and pressed powders to the skin. Celebrity makeup artists swear by them for achieving a perfectly smooth, matte finish.
A hi-tech makeup sponge: MyKitCo. My Flawless Blender Droplet
Unlike standard makeup sponges, these don’t absorb all of your product, and you can clean them easily to use them again and again. Use the pointed end to apply product into the hard to reach corners of your face and the round end to blend and buff over larger surface areas.
A makeup pencil sharpener: MyKitCo. My On Point Sharpener
Behind every perfectly precise eyeliner and lipliner look is a good sharpener – using the one from your pencil case just won’t cut it. Get your pencils on point with this sharpener – designed specifically for makeup pencils. The best part is that tanks to its secure lid and enclosed base, you can use it on the go without messing up the contents of your makeup bag.
An on-the-go blender: MyKitCo. My Flawess Blender Digit
This tapered blending sponge cleverly slots on to the end of your makeup brushes, meaning there’s no need to fiddle around with separate tools if you’re pressed for time and space. It’s perfect for precisely blending concealer, blush, contour, and highlighter.
