1. Longchamp Pouchette

Price: $52 at
When choosing cosmetic accessories, itΒ΄s absolutely essential to start with selecting a gorgeous makeup bag. Not only can it carry your makeup in style when travelling, but itΒ΄s so much nicer than keeping everything in a tatty old bag, or having it spill all over the table. This makeup bag is a beautiful red, and will make you feel pampered – and the whole point of makeup is feeling good!

2. Bobby Brown Beauty Manual

Many women are still somewhat bemused about the mystifying art of applying makeup. If you're among them, then what you need is some guidance. Since most of us can't afford our own personal makeup artist, then the next best thing is a book like this, from renowned makeup artist Bobbi Brown.

3. Estee Lauder Compact

Price: $250 at
For some Hollywood old-school glamour, splash out on a compact like this glittery beauty. Let's face it, Estee Lauder knew a thing or two about glamour. You too can feel like a star when you apply your powder from this crystal-encrusted compact. A cheap plastic compact just isnΒ΄t the same at all!

4. Tweezerman Eyelash Curlers

Price: $20 at
Eyelash curlers may not be the most glamorous of cosmetic accessories, but for maximum impact using curlers after mascara will make your peepers look truly stunning. Tweezerman tweezers are considered to be one of the best brands, and it's worth purchasing a good pair of eyelash curlers. These gold ones look stylish (although the man in your life may think they look more like an instrument of torture).

5. Laura Mercier Velour Puff

Price: $12 at
To go along with your beautiful new compact, you will of course need a luxury puff to apply the powder. If the compact doesn't come with puff provided, purchase this elegant velour puff from Laura Mercier. She is known for her excellent makeup brand, so you can be sure that her accessories are of equal quality.

6. Sedu Styling Iron

Price: $160 at
When it comes to your hair, buying cheap equipment is a false economy. It's important to protect the condition of your hair, and heated appliances can be very damaging. So when looking for straighteners, choose a pair like these, which work faster and with minimal damage. Plus they're in gorgeous girly pink!

7. Bobbi Brown Brush Collection

Price: $175 at
One of the essential cosmetic accessories is a good quality set of brushes. After all, how can you apply products well without the right tools? I can confirm that cheap brushes do not last. A good set may be expensive but, properly cared for, will last for years. Plus you can be sure that a makeup artist will have designed brushes that do the job perfectly.

8. Laura Mercier Corner Lashes

Price: $18 at
If your own lashes arenΒ΄t as full as you would like, or you want a really glamorous look, then you might be considering false lashes. This set by Laura Mercier are perfect if you're worried that your eyes might look too spidery. They are applied to the outer corner of the eye, so give extra fullness without being too intense.

I've really enjoyed picking out these beautiful cosmetic accessories, and itΒ΄s inspired me to conduct a revamp of my somewhat exhausted makeup collection! This is one case where spending more really does lead to results – if you can only afford one essential, then buy a few good brushes. What cosmetic accessories would you never be without?
