The best makeup brushes in Japan are kumano-fude brushes from Kihitsu



Today in Tokyo, living a Travelife, I picked up a couple of make-up brushes to bring on my never-ending Travelife.

I'm headed to too many countries in the next four months, including a trip back to South Africa and an epic luxury trip to Morocco.

PICKING ONLY THE BEST

These brushes are considered among the best in Japan, if not in the world.

They're called "kumano fude" and they're made by a company based in Hiroshima called Kihitsu.

These brushes are famous for being 3D makeup brushes that can apply powder very evenly, because of their unique shape.

USING THESE BRUSHES WITH GREAT PLEASURE



The brushes, which come under a line they call "Avec Plaisir," also come in lovely designs and colors, including pink, red and light blue.

These are supposed to be makeup brushes for applying foundation and blush.



I don't really wear either except for dress-up occassions, as I'm more fanatical about skin care than makeup.

But I do use an organic sunscreen/ light foundation product from a company called Innis Free in Korea.

MY LITTLE DISCOVERY IN KOREA
IS NOW A CULT PRODUCT

I picked up these Innis Free products on a trip to Jeju Island sometime back and I've been using these ever since.



When I first discovered them, they were only available on Jeju Island as they're made there. These were sold in local stores and they didn't come with English information.

Now I heard they're fast becoming a cult product, available in fancy boutiques in fashion capitals all around the world.

BRUSHES FOR MY NEVER-ENDING TRAVELIFE


As for the Kihitsu brushes, I picked up a set of brushes that came in a case, to use with my Innis Free suncreen powder. 

These are just perfect for all my upcoming trips in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
