WHY TITANIUM TOOLS RULE
Meanwhile, new British brand Navy is out to upgrade the make-up tool category – think tweezers and everything for brows and lashes, as well as nail care. They’re elegant gold pieces – not real gold but surgical-grade steel coated in titanium and all made in Sheffield. Why titanium? Because bacteria can’t adhere to its surface and it’s more durable than steel. The tools were designed, says founder and former salon owner Rebecca Crawforth, ‘for the hygiene-conscious consumer and the beauty professional’ and come with a five-year guarantee. I can’t recommend them highly enough. From £26, navyprofessional.com.
