Tools of the Trade: Beauty Essentials to Add to Your Arsenal


We love to play with pots of color, strong stylers, and plenty of polish that shift every season, and there are plenty of essentials we need to restock regularly. To achieve that coveted Hollywood look, we need high-quality brushes (for both makeup and hair). Manicure kits and hair elastics are always handy for a glam globe-trotter. Plus, you can’t put a value on the effect a good eyelash curler can provide. Bump up your beauty routine by adding these to your shopping list.
