If you are anything like me your beauty kit is overflowing with makeup, brushes, creams, lotions, powders and the list goes on. Aside fom your everyday staples and a few products you use on special ocassions, the rest are the remains from past trends (or mistakes), impulse buys and products purchased with good intentions but that never made it in to your beauty routine. There are five items which need to be added to your kit, if they aren’t already there, and you needn’t look any further to find them.

1. Extend the life of your liner pencils by keeping them sharp with the Australis Cosmetics Sharpener. Is it is also easier to apply your liner with a sharp pencil and this sharpener has a flip top lid for collecting shavings so no mess. RRP $5.95, available from australiscosmetics.com.au
