The three beauty game-changers you should always have to hand

The three beauty game-changers you should always have to hand

Beauty game-changers go beyond the usual brushes and make-up selection and give added value to your beauty kit. Simple things to always have with you so you can level up your beauty. Here are three I couldn’t be without…


A refillable atomiser

I don’t know about you, but the idea of putting a very expensive bottle of my favourite Le Labo fragrance in my luggage for holidays fills me with dread. Likewise, risking that the full size bottle won’t make it through security – or worse, bringing it on a night out only to lose it in the pub. Instead, get an atomiser and fill it with a few millilitres of your fave, worry-free and smelling amazing.

An excellent pair of tweezers

Not just for plucking stray hairs – but if you need to, it’s there for you – a good tweezers can be used to fish errant brush hairs off your face, to apply individual and strip lashes and as a general tool for opening things, tidying and delicate placement. Quite the cliché, but I think Tweezerman are the best in the biz.

Brush cleanser on the go

Sometimes the best result you’ll ever get from your make-up is the day immediately after they’ve been cleaned – there’s nothing like a fresh set of brushes to give a really flawless finish. Likewise, a clean brush dramatically reduces the chance of you getting broken out in spots because of your tools. Cleaning on the go is worth doing! This Beauty Blender one is a beauty game-changer because it’s waterless – how handy?
