Beauty is a billion-dollar business, and aside from the standard cosmetics, skin care, and hair care, there are a slew of quirky gadgets and gimmicks on the market aimed at making a daily routine a little bit easier. While some ideas seem absolutely crazy, there are actually a handful of odd-looking beauty tools that really do work. We've scoured the Internet to find the gizmos that only seem wacky, but in reality are brilliant!

Take, for example, the Tweexy, a ring of sorts that holds a bottle of nail polish while one steadily paints her digits. Sure, it seems a little cumbersome and unnecessary.

In fact, most of these ideas make the beautification process a little easier and more comfortable. Not an easy feat when one considers the old adage, "pain is beauty" (which, it bears noting: yikes). Behold eight why-didn't-I-think-of-that beauty ideas that folks should start incorporating into their regime now (that is, if there is still space left on the bathroom counter for more product). Take a look and put them on that wish list!
