Holiday 2014 Gift Guide: Must-have beauty tools and accessories

No matter what makeup and skin care products you use, the right tools and accessories can make a huge difference to your final look. Be it the perfect makeup applicator or the most thorough sonic face cleansing brush, these handy devices are must-haves in your cabinets. I have not included hair styling products, as we could be here all week otherwise. And I have tried to pick just the one product from each category, except while considering different skin types. I am giving away one of these products, so do read on to enter the giveaway and you would be taking home one of these gifts!

Check out the must-have beauty tools and accessories for Holiday 2014.



EleVease Shower Step

This is a product I can no longer live without. Shaving the legs, scrubbing and polishing the feet, clipping my toenails, buffing the heels - it has all become so much simpler with this step in the corner of my shower. Trust me, everyone needs one in their life. Read the full review here. You'll be thanking me when you realise you no longer have to balance yourself on one foot to shave. Sold here. Plus, free worldwide shipping until December 15th!
Moreover, I have a giveaway running here for one of these!

Beautyblender Pro Duo

The B.E.S.T. foundation applicator in the universe, the Beautyblender made me realise that it wasn't even about the quality of the foundation anymore. This egg-shaped sponge gives me a flawless finish every time. Believe me, the dupes do NOT cut it! Read my review here and buy it here!

Beautyblender Minis

Recent additions to my stash, these minis have changed the way I apply concealer. No more flaking or caking - these cute l'il spongelets blend out concealer perfectly around acne as well as in tricky places like the under-eye area and inner corners. Buy here.

Tanda Zap

Zap away acne overnight. This came in my recent Beauty.com haul (to be showcased soon). Mind you, this little device will not work on deep-set cystic acne, but I have had unexpected success in zapping away the regular-sized pimples. It certainly gives me a much clearer face. LOVE! Buy here

Foreo Luna Mini T Sonic  Facial Cleansing Brush

Despite of the gazillion dupes floating around, the original Foreo Luna is, to quote the SA who sold it to me in Boots Dubai, "unique and amazing". She swore I would never regret the purchase and she was right. If you buy the Foreo Luna Mini here, you get a Foreo Zipper headphone set free!

Magnitone Lucid Daily Facial Cleansing and Exfoliating Brush

If a Clarisonic is beyond your budget and you want to gift someone - or treat yourself - a sonic cleansing system, why not try the Magnitone? Starting at £49.99, it is not going to break the bank! I have added it to my cart and am trying to tell myself I don't need another brush! Buy here.
Luna or Magnitone? Luna for more sensitive skin, Magnitone for younger and/or less-sensitive skin.

Emjoi Micro-Pedi Pedicure Device

I have got rid of all those foot files and callus-buffers ever since I treated myself to one of these. This is a hassle-free, time- and energy-saving device that gives you smooth heels in minutes. The range starts at £29.99 here, and it will be the best thirty quid you ever spend! Buy the amazing Emjoi Micro Pedi set here.

Sonia Kashuk All That Jazz brush set

If I had to pick just the one brush set to gift or to treat myself for the Holidays, I would go for this gorgeous set from SK, which contains enough brushes for both eye and face makeup. Simply put, the classic black and gold design puts me in mind of Dior's J'Adore and Mont Blanc Solitaire fountain pens. Very luxe, and the perfect gift. Buy here.
Brushes or Blender? Blender, but for eye makeup and for setting powder, you need brushes.

Japonesque Heated Mini Eyelash Curler

I have hated the regular eyelash curlers ever since I got my eyelid caught between the prongs (don't ask). But I tried out these heated curlers and have loved them ever since. You need to be careful not to burn your eyelid off, but these are a breeze compared to the regular torture-devices. You have the endorsement of one of the biggest klutzes in the world. Buy here - quite a steal for £11.99, including worldwide postage.

  6. This is great! I always tend to forget how important the tools are. I think I need to grab some of those beauty blenders!

  7. Totally agree, the Beauty Blender is incredible and dupes don't compare! Also, that shower step looks so awesome. We have a stand up (no tub) shower in our master bedroom, and shaving can be quite a task. What a neat little idea!
