How do the stars look so perfect most of the time? STYLISTS, of course! The next best thing is to kit out your make-up bag with the essential tools of the trade.

FOUNDATION BRUSHES look similar to paint brushes! They allow you to apply a little base smoothly- leaving no nasty tide marks around your jaws.
BLUSHER BRUSHES are bigger than most other make-up brushes and are used to apply colour to your cheeks.
TWEEZERS are used to pluck and reshape your eyebrows. Only pluck from the bottom of your eyebrow and follow the natural shape.
