If there’s one secret every professional makeup artist knows, it’s that if you want perfectly applied makeup, you need the right tools for the job.

Whether you’re starting your makeup kit, or looking to add a few star players, here are our top picks that’ll have you contoured, blushed and bronzed like nobodies business…
