Our 5 Favourite Make-Up Tools

As part of our Best of Beauty 2015 series in IMAGE Magazine and image.ie, here are our top make-up tools we love.

Est?e Lauder Contour brush, €46
A great shape for contouring the face. Dab with cream or powder and apply under the cheekbone. This brush is ergonomically shaped for exactly the right curve and definition.

Anastasia brow brush, €18
Geometrically angled, and with just the right firmness for the perfect brow. Start at the highest point of the brow and descend to the outer side, then head to the beginning of the brow and work back up to the arched centre point in soft, short, gentle strokes.

Shu Uemura lash curlers, €28
The gold standard of lash curlers – you’ll find them backstage at all designer runways and in every make-up artist’s kit. For best results, squeeze lashes thrice – at the root, halfway, and at the end – for the perfect curl.

Callanberry brushes, €300
For a set created by Irish make-up artists Paula Callan and Derrick Carberry, these rose gold beauties form the hit brush set of 2015. All you need to make a great face.

Clarisonic Aria, €199
Ultrawave frequency causes the brushes on the head of this wonder-gadget to oscillate rather than spin, at a speed and intensity that cleanses skin beautifully, thoroughly and softly. A skincare game-changer
