Best Makeup Brushes for Traveling

Whether you're looking for brushes to take away with you, or to pop into your handbag for touching up your makeup when you're out and about, a good travel makeup brush set is essential. 

What makes a good travel makeup brush set? 

Compactness, portability, durability, and a protective case. Oh, and when they look pretty enough for you to be proud to pull them out and show them off in public, that always helps! 

Here's a roundup of our recommended Japanese makeup brushes for traveling:

Chikuhodo Makie-e Series (Portable)

Why do we love these brushes for travel?

The Maki-e Series are some of the most unique, elegant brushes out there. Chikuhodo collaborated with the prestigious lacquerware brand Yamanaka-Shikki to produce this exquisite range. Thankfully, part of this range includes a portable Powder (MK-11), Cheek (MK-12) and Lip (MK-15) brush. You can buy these in the 3-piece set (BR-8), or individually.

Chikuhodo G Series

Why do we love these brushes for travel?

They deliver all the elegance and ease-of-ues of Chikuhodo's GSN Series, but with a shorter handle. This makes them highly portable. The stunning combination of white handle, gold ferrule and natural, high-quality squirrel and goat hair bristles will have you whipping these out in public without hesitation. Available in a full 8-piece set, a 5-piece set, a compact 3-piece set, or individually.
