From eyelash curlers to foundation brushes, many women keep at least one must-have beauty tool in their arsenal. In fact, many even have an entire vanity full of must-have tools that help make the morning hair and makeup routine easy and efficient.

Don’t have at least one must-have tool? Fear not. We’ve put together a nifty list of economical must-have beauty tools that should be in every makeup bag. See if you already use any of the following tools and what ones you might find yourself using more often.

Foundation Brush

Getting a nice, even base of foundation opens your face as a blank canvas for other makeup products, such as blush, bronzer, eyeliner, and more. To achieve a flawless finish, many women apply their foundation with a brush.


Another useful tool to help create the look of a flawless complexion is a quality beauty sponge. Often used to blend makeup, sponges are also useful for correcting minor makeup mistakes.

Cotton Swabs

One of the most convenient and useful beauty tools is a simple cotton swab. Cotton swabs can effortlessly correct winged eyeliner errors and nail polish mistakes, and they are easy on the wallet.

Nail File

Has a broken nail ever caught you off guard? If so, then you know how annoying it can be. That’s why a nail file is a must-have beauty tool that should be in every makeup bag. Plan for the unexpected and toss a backup nail file in your purse. That way, you can mend your broken nail on the go if necessary.

Bronzer and Blush Brush

Having a great cheek brush in your arsenal for applying blush and bronzer can be the difference between a flawless makeup job and one that looks like it was haphazardly applied.

Eyeshadow Brushes

For the perfect smoky eye, you’re going to need a quality eyeshadow brush. There are many types of eyeshadow brushes on the market designed for different types of shadow application. Find one that works for the look you’re trying to achieve, and don’t let go of it. However, one of the best types of eyeshadow brushes is a blending brush. Blending eyeshadow colors can achieve many different looks. Depending on the colors being used, you can create a natural look for daytime wear or a seductive smoky eye for evening festivities.

Eyelash Curler

If you dream of long, curled lashes, invest in a good eyelash curler. Curling your lashes can do wonders in terms of making your eyes look wide-eyed and awake. For a bolder statement, add your favorite mascara after you’re done curling your lashes.


Don’t let a stray chin hair catch you by surprise. Stock up on tweezers and keep a pair in your makeup bag, purse, bathroom vanity, and anywhere else that would be convenient for you. They’re easy to store and are great at removing unsightly hairs.

These are only a few of the countless beauty tools available on the market. What’s your must-have beauty tool?
