10 Must-Have Makeup Tools
Wondering which makeup tools are truly essential? Here are the top 10 makeup helpers no beauty junkie should live without.
Brushes, sponges, and more… your makeup bag simply isn’t complete without a few key essentials. Here are the top 10 makeup tools to help you apply makeup like a pro.
Makeup expert Vincent Longo says he's never without a velour (and it must be velour) powder puff for applying loose or pressed powder. "I find that with the right powder puff the skin will look flawless almost without any foundation," he says. It's also great for toning down the color of your blush or eye makeup if you've accidentally applied too much or for cleaning up the area under your eyes, where excess shadow often lands and eyeliner smudges occur.
This is a great makeup tool for applying liquid foundation evenly and for smoothing creams into your skin. High-quality ones are dense but not stiff. When using with foundation, press and pat, rather than dragging the sponge across the face. If you have skin allergies, be sure to choose wedge sponges that are latex free.
To achieve a flawless complexion, concealer is a must. Whether you use a liquid-, cream-, or powder-based formula, the best way to apply this product is with a concealer brush. Its precise oval head makes covering up blemishes and other imperfections a cinch.
This short-bristled brush is ideal for blending eye makeup to achieve smoldering, smoky eyes. The tapered head and thickly packed bristles let you easily smudge eye shadow in the creases and soften lines along the lashes.
The easiest to use are flat-head, blunt-cut eyeliner brushes that let you "push" the makeup along your lash line to give you intense color at the base of the lashes. Brushes with an angled tip allow for a bit more definition. Eyeliner brushes can be used with liquid or powder eyeliner.
This makeup tool preps your lashes for mascara by giving you the perfect upward curl. To use, place the open curler on your lashes as close to the lash line as possible, and gently squeeze the handles together until they touch, then release. Silicone (rather than rubber) pads provide the best crimp-free curl.
Eyebrow Brush/Lash Comb
You'll get the most bang for your buck with a dual-sided brow brush and lash comb. The brush side shapes your brows (with or without eyebrow gel), and the comb side defines brow hairs and removes mascara clumps from your lashes.
Makeup artists consider this tool indispensable. The brush has a pointed head, tapered at the sides, allowing you to define your lips — and make your lip color look like it was professionally applied. Opt for a retractable lip brush, which will help keep your cosmetics bag clean and the brush head free from germs, hair, and lint.
For tiny makeup fixes, there's nothing better than good old cotton swabs. Just dip one end in a bit of toner or facial cream and wipe off an errant dot of mascara, or use dry to clean up a lip-liner goof.
Use these fluffy pads with your favorite facial cleanser for all-over makeup removal. For the delicate eye area, thick, quilted rounds are best since they're extra soft and won't fall apart. Cotton rounds can also be used to apply astringent or toner after washing your face — or with nail-polish remover to wipe away your manicure.

8 Bad Habits That Can Harm Your Teeth
Do you crunch on ice or clench your jaw? Stop — you could be damaging your teeth.Are you wrecking your teeth without even knowing it? If you suck your thumb or suck on lemons, you’re doing your pearly whites wrong. And did you know that biting your nails is not only bad for your fingers, it can actually hurt your teeth, too?
While some of these dental health “don’ts” can do immediate damage to your teeth (by cracking or breaking them), the effects of others may add up over time, harming your dental health in the long run. So put all 8 of these bad habits to rest — for your teeth’s sake.
1. Say No to Soft DrinksAlways have a soda on hand? Carbonated drinks can be bad for your teeth, because they tend to be very acidic. "Even if it's diet, the acidity of [soda] is just corroding your enamel, The effects of soda on teeth are even worse if you slowly sip it over a long period of time. "People don't realize they are bathing their teeth in acid for an hour," she adds. The acidity in soda can lead to dental health problems such as decay around your gum line and loss of enamel.
2. Don't Brush Too HardBrushing your teeth regularly is part of good oral hygiene, but if you brush too vigorously, you can cause more harm than good. Brushing your teeth too hard can wear down enamel, irritate your gums, make your teeth sensitive to cold, and even cause cavities. To avoid these problems, We recommend using a soft bristled toothbrush. "Just look for the letters NDA [Nigerian Dental Association] on the box, which means the bristles are firm enough to remove plaque, but soft enough not to cause damage.
3. Thumbs Down on Thumb SuckingChildren who still suck their fingers or thumbs after their permanent teeth start coming in — usually around the age of 5 or 6 — could be causing permanent changes that affect tooth and jaw structure. Specifically, thumb sucking can cause a misalignment of the teeth, This misalignment can lead to a number of issues, including difficulty chewing and breathing problems — so help wean your child off his thumb.
4. Lay Off the LemonsPeople who suck lemons may be putting their dental health in jeopardy. Why? Lemons are very acidic,The acidity corrodes the enamel [of the teeth]." Repeated exposure to acidic substances can cause tooth enamel to erode, creating a rough texture on the surface of your teeth.
5. Refrain From Jaw Clenching and Tooth GrindingFor some people, stress can trigger frequent clenching of the jaw or grinding of the teeth. "There is a severe amount of pressure on your teeth when you do that, and you can get microfractures or actual fractures in your teeth,. Microfractures are weakened areas in your teeth that puts them at risk for further damage. Jaw clenching or tooth grinding can also damage dental work.
6. Do You Crunch on Ice? Cool ItIce cubes may seem harmless, we has these words of advice: "Beware of the killer cube." The cold temperature and the hardness of ice cubes can cause serious damage to your teeth. "Our teeth are designed to crush through things, not against something. Even though crunching ice with your teeth may be easy, keep in mind that your blender needs special blades to crush ice.
7. Your Teeth Are Not a ToolMany people use their teeth to break off a tag on clothing, rip open a package of potato chips, or even unscrew bottle tops. But according to Price, teeth are meant to help us do three things: Chew food, speak properly, and look better when we smile. "Teeth are not pliers, teeth are not hooks. Using your teeth as a tool is a threat to dental health and can damage dental work or cause your teeth to crack.
8. Boycott Nail Bitingoral hygiene issue. "People who bite their nails usually do it chronically. Regularly biting your nails can cause your teeth to move out of place. In addition, nail biting could potentially cause teeth to break or tooth enamel to splinter.
