In all my makeup wearing years, I have never exactly understood the significance of make up brushes until my first day of Personal Makeup Course at Maquillage Professionnel last month. Before Charm Travel Pro V.3 Makeup Brush Set, I used to own a decent one that I bought on a whim but never got to use as much. All because I really was clueless how. I tried to use them for what they are for (thanks to YouTube), but always find myself going back to my good ‘ol fingers to do the job. Not this time. I have come to acquaint myself to each and every brush. Thanks to my teachers over at Maquillage Professionnel, there really is nothing like a professionally done canvas. Just to give you an idea, the hubby is so convinced even that he allows me to apply on him his BB cream (it’s his SPF cream) with the stippling brush. Even he can see the difference of how much smoother and more even the application is using the stippling brush.
The Charm Travel Pro Makeup Brush Set comes in this sophisticated packaging which practically spells all the fab places you can bring your kit to. It’s way too pretty I can’t bring myself to stash it in the bin despite its now battered corners.
Its pretty color screams to be oh so me! If you haven’t noticed, I have had this hotpink watermark for my photos in this blog and it has been my color since forever! The color itself spells love for me. It was days after Sophie handed me this that I actually got to use them and fell in love with them since. Before I show you the picture of how it looks like nowadays (I’ve practically used and abused the set since I got hold of them), here are photos I took when it was still brand spanking new.
Beauty & Minerals made sure that we’re not just equipped with the right tools, she also provided for us instructions on how to care for those babies.
1. Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water.
2. Apply a small amount of shampoo/baby wash to bristles and work into a light lather.
3. Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water until water becomes clear.
4. Squeeze off excess water.
5. Lay the brushes flat to dry (not standing up).
6. Leave in well ventilated place to dry.
Check out the sleek black faux leather croc pouch of Charm Travel Pro. Can a makeup brush set case be any sassier? The hotpink zipper totally complements the whole packaging. And that’s not where it ends, the zipper pull has its brand name in it, “Charm.” Plus, that handy strap for our convenience! Sweet! 🙂

Stippling and Powder Makeup Brushes
I prefer to use the stippling brush whenever I use BB cream, or any other liquid or cream foundation, for that matter. The coverage might be less intense but it easily gives an airbrushed finish. I have not yet perfected how to use the foundation brush without leaving streaks. So the stippling makeup brush is always my default brush to apply BB cream, for now.
Foundation and Concealer Makeup Brushes
Because I have these permanent red spots around the nose, the concealer brush is the one thing I cannot do without. I love that these charm makeup brushes don’t give an itchy feel on my face. I’ve tried a few cheapo ones before which practically turned me off from using makeup brushes. Hooray to Charm’s softest blend of animal and synthetic hair! 🙂
All makeup brushes come in handles marked with the brand, Charm. Classy! 🙂
Here’s how my Charm Travel Pro V.3 Makeup Brush Set looks like nowadays when you zip it open. Because I cannot actually take my huge makeup bag to places I go to, I squeeze in my concealer, brow kit creme, contour/highlight kit and eyeshadow quad (under the contour kit). They all fit in! Sorry if I abuse it this way, works for me and I make sure that the makeup brushes aren’t hurt and are all still cozy together.
I’m officially charmed by Charm Travel Pro V.3 Makeup Brush Set! I would have taken it to Boracay last week if the trip was not cancelled. It traveled to Tagaytay with me instead and tomorrow before the dawn breaks, it will be with me in Davao! Compact and complete, the Charm Travel Pro Brush Set comes in a very reasonable price of P2,200.00 (Approx. $52), free shipping nationwide for online buyers.
