Makeup Brushes You Need For Travel For Flawless Makeup Application
When it comes to travelling, less is always more – not only because you have a baggage limit, but also because there’s no way you’d want to lug around 50kg worth of luggage around.
That said, there are still some things that you just can’t compromise, such as a change of underwear, socks (because wearing the same pair for a week is gross) and, in our opinion, makeup brushes.
Some cosmetics are made to be travel-friendly and while it’s advisable to opt for those rather than carry a one-litre bottle around, you can’t really forgo your makeup brushes, especially if you’re the kind who prefer to explore foreign lands with full makeup on. Yes, there are travel-sized and disposable ones, but most of the time, they can’t give the same finish as your regular-sized brushes. Thankfully, there are these dual-ended ones that scrimps on space without compromising on quality.
