There are so many things to love about makeup and beauty — trying new products is such a treat! Not to mention, feeling pretty and put together does magic for our confidence and soul. But I happen to think that the most important part about our beauty routines is that we get to take a moment every day and indulge in some much-needed self-care. When we can take a second to breathe and take care of ourselves, even if it’s something as simple as taking off our grimy makeup and putting on moisturizer before bed, we are giving ourselves a tiny respite from the hardships of the day. It’s a moment to connect with ourselves, feel a sense of peace, and give our souls a little high five. And anytime we can enhance the experience by having some really great tools at our disposal, it’s even better!

It’s always a good time to take a moment for ourselves, and here are 12 of our favorite tools that help us do so!
