Favourite Real Techniques Brushes

Thursday, 4 September 2014

Anyone who vaguely follows the blogging world will have heard of Real Techniques make up brushes, even those who don't, but are into make up, will have undoubtedly heard of them, so sorry if this is a boring post for you, but I thought I would share a few of my favourites from the collection. If you've never heard of them before, I suggest you go to Boots or Superdrug or click on the above link and buy some as soon as possible, they will revolutionise the way you apply your make up and you will never look back!

1./Expert Face Brush
This is the newest brush that I have added to my collection and probably my favourite, it's perfect for applying foundation and blends it in really well, giving the foundation a more flawless, natural look.

2./Base Shadow Brush
Pretty self explanatory, but this brush is perfect for applying eyeshadow to your eyelid, it's ideal either for a base shadow or to help blend in another colour into the crease of your eyelid. I used to have a very similar one from No.7, but it never applied eyeshadow as evenly as this Real Techniques one.

3./Deluxe Crease Brush
This follows on from the previous brush as the two kind of go hand in hand. I always use this brush after I've used the base shadow brush. It is perfect for blending eyeshdow across the top of your eyelid and into the crease. Quite often I use a darker colour through the crease of my eyelid and this brush effotlessly blends it in so that I don't end up looking strange with two block colours on my eyes.

4./Brow Brush
It sounds really silly, but this brush has definitely revolutinised my life. Being quite fair, my eyebrows can often disappear underneath foundation or powder. However, this brush is the perfect shape for my brows and so I just place a bit of brown eyeshadow on it and then fill in my eyebrows. I think that eyebrows are so important because they can definitely make or break a make up look, so it is important that you get them right.

5./Contour Brush
Last, but not least, is the contour brush. I had never really contoured before I got this brush and even now, I only really contour my face when I'm going out in the evening. It's the perfect shape for my cheek bones and so I use it to contour just under the apples of my cheek, in the hollows of my cheek and then for highlighting across the top of my jaw bone. It's amazing how a little bit of contouring can really shape your face.

These are just a few of my favourites, whilst I don't have that many make up brushes, I'm slowly, but surely adding to my collection. Next on my list is the Blusher Brush and Powder Brush because the current brushes I'm using are getting really old now. What I love about the Real Techniques collection is that the brushes are so soft on your face and the hairs from the brushes never come out whilst applying make up; there's nothing worse than perfecting your make up look, just to find hairs all over your face from the brushes!
