Is it just us or is everything ten times cuter in a scaled down size?! From miniature makeup brushes to baby beautyblenders, here at face.co.uk we have a current obsession with all things mini!
Not only are smaller sized beauty tools convenient, they often come in sleek packaging and travel friendly cases making them the perfect, portable alternative to your typical brushes and sponges. Some products have also been specially designed smaller with a purpose – often being to tackle hard to reach areas.
The beautyblender Bubble Micro Mini Duo set consists of two pretty, pastel pink sponges that have been shrunk in size for targeted application of makeup, and more detailed contouring and defining. When wet, like the original beautyblender, these sponges do expand slightly, but their teeny tiny design allows for effortless precision and is ideal for applying cream or liquid concealer to the under eye area. They are also great for contouring the sides of your nose and adding extra definition to your cheekbones.
Unless you switch all of your makeup brushes to retractable designs, they will often take up the most room in your makeup bag and they aren’t exactly fit for throwing in your handbag either. Introducing the Real Techniques Mini Brush Trio! This extra small set comes in a handy little pouch and consists of a mini foundation brush, powder brush and eye shading brush – arguably all the tools you could possibly need for on-the-go touch ups. Small and lightweight; these brushes won’t weigh you down and will leave you with extra room in your bag for a whole host of other beauty items.
Smudged concealer or in need of a little extra coverage midday? Then look no further than the incredibly popular Japonesque Travel Fluff Concealer Brush. Its small head targets blemishes and flawlessly buffs product into your skin, whilst the small handle saves you space. Expect perfect results despite the smaller size!

Available in three different designs, this tube is travel friendly and contains everything needed to apply your makeup from eye brushes, to foundation, lip and blush brushes – you can complete nearly any look with this clever kit!
