    6. Or a double-sided eyeliner pen, if doing a freehand cat-eye usually takes you 30 minutes. It lets you stamp on a wing with one end and line your eye with the other, so you can finally have matching wings that look like sisters and not neighbours.

    Amazon / Via, Imaan Sheikh / BuzzFeed

    Yup, that's me using it on my hand. I put foundation, powder, lipstick, and eyeliner on it, and BOOM, it's gone within a few swipes. I love using this on nights when I’m too tired or sleepy to do my entire face-washing regimen. I know the idea of rubbing your face with a towel sounds abrasive, but it's so gentle! It even removes waterproof makeup.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon Canada for $16.49.

    12. A jade roller or a Gua Sha stone you can chill in the fridge and use around your eyes to de-puff and soothe them. I like using mine when I haven't slept enough (or had a little cry), because my eye makeup goes on so much more smoothly when my eyes aren't all swollen up.

    Amazon / Via

    It also helps drain fluid from your face, so it's a no-brainer for any skincare lover. Check out one BuzzFeeder’s full review of jade rollers.

    Get a pack of 150 from Amazon Canada for $14.99.

    14. A tinted brow mascara from NYX that'll help fill and tame your brow hairs and make them look neater. I don't tweeze or wax my brows, but I love zhuzh-ing them up a little when I want to look more put together, and this produces a really nice and natural effect.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9. Available in four shades.

    15. But if you prefer a less made-up look, this clear lash and brow mascara will make you look naturally polished. It's long lasting and dual-sided, so you can use one mascara for your brows and the other for your lashes, without contamination.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $2.97.

    16. A bunch of clear and colourful rhinestones you can add to your inner corner or top lash line to create a more glitzy look. I especially love using a rhinestone in my inner lid corner when I want to glam up a night-time eye look, without veering into festival territory.

    Amazon / Via

    The come with a sticky pencil that'll help you pick up the rhinestone, and a pair of fine-tip tweezers for precise application.

    Get 6000 rhinestones from Amazon Canada for $44.48+. Available in three packs.

    17. Maybelline Instant Erase concealer, which has stood the test of time and remained a bestseller for years. It has a sponge tip that makes applying under-eye concealer a total breeze. And it's highly pigmented, so you'll look all woken up even if you got out of bed 15 minutes before your Zoom meeting.

    @maybelline / Via, Amazon Canada / Via

    For the longest time, this only had paler shades, but they expanded the range a few years ago and it's become a lot more brown skin friendly. Reviewers have called it a makeup must-have.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $7.98+. Available in 20 shades.

    18. A 12-piece brush set designed for your eyes only. It includes every kind of brush you'll need to pack on or blend out your eyeshadow, and even has angled brushes for your gel liner and brow powder needs.

    The brushes are made of soft synthetic fibres and won't shed easily. Reviewers say they perform better than their high-end mainstream counterparts.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $12.99.

    19. And a makeup brush cleaner that'll get your tools squeaky clean, so you aren't getting streaks of last week's smokey eye on today's neutral eye. It spins and washes brushes of any diameter and can even dry them afterwards, so all your beauty tools are fluffy and germ free.

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor Kat Angus tried it and had this to say about it: "I know I'm not alone in not washing my makeup brushes as often as I should. It takes forever, and even once I'm done cleaning them, I still have to let them dry overnight. But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. I cleaned and dried all of my makeup brushes in under ten minutes. Now I'll actually clean them on the regular."

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $25.98. The cleaner needs four AAA batteries to function, so pick up a multipack here.

    20. A tube of LA Girl Pro orange corrector that'll neutralize your dark under-eye circles like nobody's business. Pat some in before applying your foundation or concealer and boom! What dark circles?

    LA Girl Cosmetics / Via, @lagirlcosmetics / Via

    It honestly changed my makeup game and I personally recommend it to anyone with medium brown to deep skin. You'll end up saving foundation and concealer because you no longer have to pile it on to cover pigmentation around the mouth and under your eyes. A little goes a long way, so just tap a tiny bit on to the areas you need more coverage, and then apply foundation. Less product = a more natural finish!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $7.13.

    21. A bottle of Garnier Micellar Cleansing water that'll melt away the most stubborn makeup in seconds. It has a lightweight feel and you won't need to pour half a bottle on a cotton pad to start feeling fresh and clean.

    @garnierusa / Via

    I love soaking a cotton pad in it and letting it rest on my eye for a few seconds before wiping waterproof mascara away.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $6.98.

    22. A daily-wear eyeshadow palette that combines dark and light neutrals, so you can give your lids a wash of colour, without whipping out all your other shadow palettes. The shades are velvet-soft, and there's a cute lilac colour among the browns, too, if you want to switch things up a bit.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $16.88.

    24. A set of contoured eye masks that'll block out light, without putting pressure on your eyes. The curved shape means the mask won't even touch your eyes, so you can take a quick nap, without messing up your makeup or eyelash extensions.
