Summer is over and the autumn / winter season is approaching – but that doesn’t mean we’re bidding goodbye to holiday season just yet. Autumn is the perfect season for a jet-set city break to the bustling metropolises of Berlin, Prague or Paris – but a short weekend break calls for a capsule wardrobe and, more importantly, a capsule collection of make-up brushes!
If you’re heading for a cultured capital this autumn, take a look at our guide to the ideal capsule collection of make-up brushes – a must-have in any hand luggage this season!
First up, you’ll need a foundation brush. As the name might suggest, foundation is what all other make-up is built upon. It covers blemishes and evens out the complexion, creating a perfect base for blusher, eyeshadow, lipstick and all of the other fun cosmetics that go on top. A great foundation brush should be first on the list for a jet-setting diva – and the Flawless Foundation brush from Nanshy is just the ticket. It evens skin tone and gives a creamy, healthy look that simply glows with radiance and vitality.

Next, you’ll need a multitasking brush for your blusher and bronzer. Depending on your skin tone (and your holiday destination) you’ll have a natural preference between bronze and blush. Pale skin with cool undertones look great in pinky blush, while those with warmer skin look fabulous with bronzed cheekbones. The Blush & Bronze brush from Nanshy Collection has been designed and developed to be a central part of any capsule make-up kit, creating buildable coverage and giving the skin a beautiful glow, whether you opt for soft pink or shimmering bronze.
Next up, time to focus on your pretty peepers. You might not want to layer on the eyeshadow during the day – just a slick of mascara is fine for everyday sightseeing. But when the sun goes down and it’s time to hit the town, the Blending Eyeshadow brush is perfect for creating covetable smoky eyes. You’ll also need an eyeliner tool – and the Nanshy Precise Bent Eyeliner is a great way to give yourself sexy cat-eye flicks that look straight out of the 1960s.
Lastly, let’s not neglect those luscious lips! Whether you’re applying creamy balm to protect them from the elements (the sun in Dubai or the snow in Prague) or going for a rich splash of colour, you’ll need a great lip brush to apply your product precisely and perfectly. The Angled Detailer brush is perfectly formed to create a lust-worthy Cupid’s Bow, and with pearl-coated handles and a no-shedding guarantee, it’s a must-have in any suitcase this season!
