How many times have you knocked over nail varnish while painting your nails? Yeah, me too. That's why this little ring is such a brilliant tool. The holder fits all finger sizes and every size of nail polish bottle you can think of, including minis.

2. Makeup Eraser, £17

The Makeup Eraser is a cloth that claims to take off your makeup with just water. No cleansers, no chemicals, none of that – just water. And surprisingly, it actually works. It's perfect for times when you really can't be bothered to wash your face.

Have a look at what happened when we tried the cloth.

A tool that can actually help you achieve your eyeliner goals. The Liner.Designer is a eyeliner application tool from Beauty Blender that acts as a steady hand to help you apply liner perfectly. It works great with pencils, pens, gel creams, liquid, and powder.

A tool that makes wearing fake lashes easier. YASSS! The Eylure Lash Applicator allows you to get really close to your lash line and firmly grips lashes without damaging them.

5. Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Mat, £25

The multi-textured surface lets you get rid of all the makeup and dirt left on brushes by rubbing them on the mat. And if you don't fancy spending £25 on the Sigma mats, you can get much cheaper alternatives on Amazon.

Have a look at how it works.

6. Bliss Fabulips Pout-O-Matic, £34

I know, why spend 34 quid on a lip kit when you can buy a lip balm for £2? But the lip-perfecting device is actually worth it. It uses gentle rotation to effectively stimulate and exfoliate your lips, leaving them super soft, and a perfect base for lipstick.

7. MAC Spatula, £16

For when you have to get every single drop of product out, the MAC spatula fits into almost all makeup containers. You can get cheaper options, but they tend to be made out of wood and don't last for more than a few uses.


9. Beautyblender Blotterazzi, £16

A tool that does the job of a blotting paper but in a reusable sponge format, the Blotterazzi is made of the same pink material as Beautyblender sponges and it comes in a mirrored compact.

10. Shadow Shields, £4.99
