1. Tarte Stroke of Midnight Brush Set & Travel Case, $69 (left)

This set has a foundation brush for setting your makeup, a foundation brush for stippling, an eyeshadow brush, a concealer brush and a blusher brush. These are all full-sized and have uber-shiny gold-tone handles. And if that’s not flashy enough for you, the brushes come in a sequinned pouch.


2. Chanel Les Minis de Chanel, $140 (centre) 

You’ll get two travel-size face makeup brushes and three eye makeup brushes, all of which are made with super-soft fibres that won’t irritate the skin. Also in the set: a portable brush holder (not shown), so you can take these tools with you everywhere.


3. Make Up For Ever Cult Brush Set, $135 (right)

The brushes from Make Up For Ever are handcrafted via a 25-step process to ensure that the density and shape of all bristles are perfectly balanced – this gives a more flawless application. In this set: a foundation brush, a highlighter brush, an eyeshadow brush, an eyebrow brush and an eyeliner brush (all travel-size). The last is angled for a more precise application (good for those with shaky hands!).
