Today’s post is about Affordable Travel Makeup Brush Sets! There are many different styles available to purchase. Some with only a few brushes that can be used for different applications. There are a lot of different affordable travel makeup brush sets but today I am only focusing on a set of 4 that I found to be a great price point for what you are getting.
In this post I will touch up on those who are looking for a minimalist style brush set or those looking for a large set for an affordable price. The option are endless when it comes to affordable travel makeup brush sets and I hope you find something that suits you needs.

Real Techniques Travel Essentials Set
The Real Techniques Travel Essentials kit comes with three brushes and a drying/travel case. The three brushes contained in this kit are the Essentials Foundation Brush, Domed Shadow Brush and the Multi Task Brush (which can be used for powder/blush/contour application). The brush handles are average size and the travel case will fit into most luggage sets but may get lost in the shuffle.
This set is good to start with as it gives you three fundamental brushes and the ability to carry them or stand them up on a counter in any bathroom or desk while traveling. The case is a little bulky but is sturdy enough to survive those who do travel a lot. I think the best feature in this set is the ability to stand it on its side for easy access.
Eco Tools Five Piece Travel Set
The Eco Tools Five Piece Travel Set comes with 4 brushes, two powder/complexion brushes and two eye brushes. A small set but Ecotools is know for their quality essential brushes as seen in this set.
These brushes are in a small size, perfect for travel and those who prefer a shorter brush handle. EcoTools are well made and are easy to clean. The case the brushes come in is a good size and you will be able to pack this in a purse instead of your luggage. The brushes are small enough that they would not take up too much space on a hotel bathroom counter or small desk if that is all you have available to you.
e.l.f. Cosmetics 6 Piece Travel Brush Set
The e.l.f. Cosmetics 6 Piece Travel Brush Collection Cosmetics 6 Piece Travel Set comes with 6 brushes and a nice carrying case. They have a smaller handle and fit well within their case. Brushes included are two face brushes, 3 eyeshadow brushes and a eyebrow brush.
I like this set a lot as the handles are shorter and the carrying case is small enough to fit in most luggage sets without getting lost in the shuffle. This doesnt have the ability to stand on its own but the brushes are small enough that they wouldnt get in the way while traveling if you have a small area to work with.
Bestope Makeup Brushe 16 Piece Set
The BESTOPE 16 Piece Travel Brush Set comes with a whopping 16 brushes. There is a lot of variety when it comes to these brushes and I think would be great for even a starter brush set, not just a travel set. This comes with 16 different brushes, 9 eyeshadow brushes and 6 face brushes and an eyebrow grooming brush.
The downside to this brush set is that it does not come with a travel case so you would have to have a case ready for them. The handles are average size and you would definitely have to choose which brushes to take with you, but for the price point you definitely have options.
And there it is!
Affordable travel sets are everywhere and you can find them at pretty much any price point. I decided to focus on those that are under $20.00 CAD today but I will be branching out further as I get more into the various price points available.
I love the versatility of travel makeup brush sets and I really love the fact that a lot of them come with carrying cases. Travel brush sets are great for those who do a lot of travel or dont have much space for their makeup.
I hope you found this post helpful and I want to know, do you carry all your brushes when you travel or just a few depending on what you will be doing on your trip?
