As you might have realized already, I’m quite the skincare and makeup junkie. But what I haven’t blogged about are the beauty tools I use behind the scenes.
They are the true unsung heroes that that I use day-in and day-out in my beauty routine, that really never get the credit they deserve.
These 6 beauty tools make my makeup application effortless, cut down my time in front of the mirror and even help my skincare perform better.
So to properly salute them, today I thought I would share the top beauty tools I absolutely can’t live without.
6 Must Have Beauty Tools
Best Beauty Tools #1 – T3 Convertible Collection Curler
T3 Convertible Collection Curler is my no. 1 must-have beauty tool that I absolutely can’t live without.
I’ve owned this over 2 year now and it’s still going strong. It’s hands down the best curler I’ve ever owned, and believe me I’ve gone through a LOT of them.
T3 Convertible Collection Curler has a range interchangeable barrels (7 total), so you can create any type of curl you can dream of.
And of course have all the attachments for it because that’s the kind of beauty junkie I am, but the barrels I typically use come in the Whirl collection that are great for making create spiral curls and waves.
I love that T3 Convertible Curler is an efficient beauty tool that heats up in just about 7 seconds. It also curls my hair just as quickly and on most days I can curl my entire head in under 8 minutes.
The curls and waves it makes are incredibly long lasting too. The tourmaline and ceramic barrel produces curls that hold well and leave the hair smooth and shiny. I can literally skip the hair spray and still have my curls last for almost 3 days.
Best Beauty Tools #2 – T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer
The T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer is my another beauty tool that I also use on a daily basis. It comes in as a very close second to the T3 curler which would only win by a hair (pun intended).
This beauty tool has been a complete time saver for me, now it only takes me about 6 minutes to dry my hair. And since I’m a daily hair washer, the Cure Luxe literally gives me back hours of my life every week!
I’ll be honest, it has a hefty price that deterred me from getting it sooner, but it’s worth every penny, in both the time you save drying your hair and for the hair products you’ll wont have to buy to since you’re not damaging it as much.
The T3 Micro Cura Luxe hair dryer has multiple heat and speed settings, drys my hair like a dream. Even at the low speed setting it has better air flow than my old hair dryer, and when it’s on high, it literally blows me away!
I also have to mention I’m impress with how quiet it is considering how much power it has. Plus, my hair looks shinier, softer, and healthier (thanks to the built-in ion generator) even though I blow dry it more than ever now!
Best Beauty Tools #3 -Dermaroller
Using a dermroller was probably the best beauty tool that happened to my skincare routine. Dermarolling is a form of microneedling and involves using a mini wheel covered with hundreds of tiny needles to gently prick the face.
I know it doesn’t sound like fun, but trust me work miracles for clearing acne scars, fading fine lines, and evening out skin tone and texture.
How it works is these tiny needles create micro-injuries on the skin, which in turn sends collagen and elastin production into overdrive to compensate as it heals—leaving your complexion tighter and plumper than it was beforehand.
Plus it also lets your skincare penetrate deeper from all little pin pricks. I use my dermroller in combination with one of my serums typically a vitamin c, hylauronic acid, or anti-anti aging serum.
I’ve found that it greatly helped with my over skin texture over time, making it look smoother and more refined while reducing the appearance of pores. I also noticed my skin feeling plumper and tighter as well.
To use the dermaroller, I start off my applying serum to my face like normal to moisten my skin, then gently roll my dermaroller over my skin vertically, horizontally, and diagonally, over your cheeks, forehead, chin, lips, and neck, and finish off with another layer of serum.
I typically use a 0.25mm to a 0.5mm needle size, and definitely recommend using a starting with a smaller needle size if you’re new to it.
If you’re looking to refine pores you’ll need smaller thinner needles, and if you’re looking for it to help with scarring you’ll probably need to go up to a 0.5.
There are also 1mm+ size needles, but I think it’s best you leave those to the pros at your dermatologist’s office.

Must-Have Beauty Tool #4 – Tweezerman Slant Tweezer
I’m a firm believe that brows speak louder that words, and I’m not kidding. The Tweezerman Slant Tweezers are a staple beauty tool in any makeup toolkit.
Keeping brows looking well-groomed is what they do best. They’re ultra precise and yank out even the finest baby hair without a pinch or slip. And I find the slant in them so helpful me to shaping my arches just perfectly.
I’ve had my first pair of Tweezermans for years, and they’re still going strong! But they have such cute designs I always find myself picking up a new pair every year or so, plus it’s always good to have a few backups.
Must-Have Beauty Tool #5 – Snow Teeth Whitening
In an ideal world, brushing your teeth routinely would be enough to keep your set of pearly whites, well, pearly and white between routine dentist appointments. But alas, for many of us (particularly those of us with a serious coffee or red wine habit), that’s just not the case.
Snow Teeth Whitening is an at-home teeth whitening technology that doesn’t require a prescription and is FDA approved. What I like most about it other than the fact that it actually works well, is how easy it is to use.
It takes about 10 minutes a day, and now that I’m happy with how my teeth look I typically only use it once a week. You just apply a whitening serum using a brush, pop the mouth piece in your mouth for 10 minutes that just plugs into your phone or laptop (super handy!), then rinse and you’re done. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Best Beauty Tools #6 – Artis Make Up Brushes
One of the most important beauty tools are makeup brushes. Having good brushes are key to having flawless makeup application.
I admit I was skeptical about how these the Artis brushes would work, but the curved ergonomic handle actually makes it much easier to apply your makeup to your face.
This beauty tool is almost like a work of art itself. It’s bristles are plush, but firm and pick up powders and creams beautifully and distribute them evenly across the skin without eating up a ton product.
Not only are their powder brushes amazing, but their eye brushes are too. They carve out a crease like no other and allow you to blend with ease and accuracy around the delicate eye area.

I am a massive T3 fan. I’ve tried endless straighteners of all prices, and my T3 Single Pass styler is better than anything else I’ve tried! I would love to try their hair dryer xo

The Dermaroller scares me! I’m curious to try the concept but I’m not sure I want to do it on myself… I think I’d want to go to a professional to get it done first.
The Artis brushes look great – I only own the MAC ones (which are produced by Artis) but I’d like to get one of the Artis ones that are BIG so I can smooth out my foundation in a couple of swipes [lazy]!

I really love the dermaroller, just start with one with shorter needles. It’s made a huge difference for my skin. I’d love to get one of those big ones too!!
