But with these new Harry Potter makeup brushes from StoryBook Cosmetics, applying lipstick, eye shadow, blush and powder might make you feel like a wizard wielding a wand of beauty.
The set includes five brushes made of synthetic hairs with metal handles in the wand styles of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Albus Dumbledore and Lord Voldemort.
The set retails for $55 (£45, AU$72) and comes in a custom velvet pouch for safe keeping. StoryBook Cosmetics ships worldwide, with an estimated shipping date of December 10.
Fans will soon be able to use the wand brushes on magical makeup as well. Storybook Cosmetics is also in the process creating Harry Potter-inspired eyeshadows with names like "Sly" and "Clever."
