I was given a Real Techniques make-up brush for Christmas and I loved it so much I went and bought another, so I wanted to share them with you in case you hadn’t heard of them as I think they really are a make-up bag essential.
The Real Technique brushes are by the two sisters Sam and Nic Chapman, you may know them better from their Youtube channel Pixiwoo. Working as professional make-up artists you know these brushes are good as the girls use them themselves and also helped to design them!
I thought I would show you them with a couple of my favourite products I use on a daily basis, Dior Forever foundation and Tom Ford Cheek Colour in Frantic Pink. Luckily I got a new Tom Ford blush for Christmas too, so here it is looking all perfect and untouched.
First up the Face Brush which I instantly fell in love with, the brush has ultra plus taklon bristles and what I like is that the bristles are pretty short so gives you great control when applying foundation. I pump out a little from the bottle ( colour 020) and onto the tips of the brush. I then work it across my face in circular movements. The brush is so soft and really rubs in the foundation so that it gives a really flawless look, I was very impressed. Here I have put it onto my hand to give you the idea. It’s great not to get foundation all over my hands for once too!
I was so happy with the face brush, I just purchased the blush brush too. It again has very soft bristles and contours the blush perfectly and seems to pick up just the right amount. I have had many brushes and you can tell they weren’t that great quality compared to this, I love it. What you’ll notice with the brushes is that each has it’s own colour so the face are gold, eyes purple and perfect finish for blush etc are pink. They also are all clearly labelled so you know which is which.
This is my favourite blush at the moment, it has such a lovely light pink colour that looks great for my everyday make-up looks and also for evening.
Have you used these brushes before?
