Brushes are my favorite. I have about a million brushes and I think that is because I love watching beauty videos and when I see my favorite makeup artists/YouTubers using new and different brushes I usually decide that I have to have them. It is no surprise that I own the entire Real Techniques line twice over.
What I absolutely love about this line, aside from the fact that it was created by Sam & Nic from PixiWoo (aka my Beauty BFFs), is that they are synthetic and affordable. Sam & Nic are practicing makeup artists as well as YouTubers, and they can teach anyone how to create beautiful looks with their line of makeup brushes and sponges—which are available at Walmart’s everyday low price.
The brushes are synthetic and SUPER soft. You can tell they put a lot of thought into every single angle and bristle in each bristle to help you create the most flawless looks possible—which will make you a Beauty Boss in no time! Every Real Techniques tool comes with tips and inspiration to help you achieve your favorite go-to looks or experiment with on-trend styles. And since Sam and Nic are your partners, you can always check out their fun YouTube videos if you want a little more inspiration.
Let me take you through a few of my favorite sets and individual brushes!
Enahnced Eye Set 2.0
This set includes: Medium shadow brush, essential crease brush, fine liner brush, and shading brush. These 4 brushes are all you need to create any eye look you could possibly want. The medium shadow brush is wide and flat with tapered bristles to softly sweep and blend powder or cream shadows. The essential crease brush features a soft, tapered design for effortless shaping using powder or cream shadows. The fine liner brush is the ultimate tool for precision application of liquid or cream eyeliner. The shading brush is short and dense for max color pickup and even distribution.
Expert Face Brush
This densely packed brush of taklon bristles is heaven for anyone looking to buff their foundation in for a professional looking finish. It features ultra-firm bristles that last for a long time. The broad dimensions of the foundation brush let you work quickly so you can get on to the next step. It’s ideal for both cream or liquid foundation or you can blend the two together.
This brush is hand-cut to contour and define cheeks for flawlessly blended, high-definition results. It is super soft and flexible, which is exactly what you want in a blush brush. It is also an ideal brush for applying bronzer. Load the brush with a dark blush for a dramatic evening look or choose something lighter for a natural daytime style. It delivers high-definition results for a flawless look in natural or artificial light.
Miracle Complexion Sponge
I am obsessed with this sponge. The flat edges contour around eyes and nose, while the sides blend large areas of the face. These Real Techniques beauty sponges give you high definition results that you can be confident about.
I am into creating looks that involve a super flawless base and a very relaxed, natural look in all other areas so the two pieces that I CAN NEVER be without are the Expert Face Brush and the Miracle Complexion Sponge. No matter what, these two are in my makeup bag. I need that sponge in my life for every day makeup looks (when I only have 5 minutes to pull myself together) and and I love the Expert Face Brush for when I want a more polished look. No matter what, I have a perfected, FLAWLESS foundation finish and that is what my entire look is always all about.
