My Real Techniques Brushes

L-R Powder Brush, Blush brush, Buffing brush, Contour brush, Pointed Foundation brush and Detailer brush.

Hey My Lovelies, Hope you've all had a great week and have that Friday feeling! Its the weekend at last, time to relax and enjoy yourself. Todays post is about my Real Techniques brush collection.

Now I don't have lots of them but I have enough for me to be certain that these are currently my favourite brushes ever. As most of you probably know, they are created by Pixiwoo who is a blogger, you tuber and professional make up artist. These brushes are colour coded according to the key steps of make up application. Orange for the base, purple for the eye area and pink for the finishing touches. It makes selecting a brush really quick and easy. I just love how soft they feel on your face and the fact that they look super cute too. So I have the core collection which I bought the other week, the powder brush and the blush brush which were both purchased separately. I am just going to list the different brushes and a quick summery of what I use them for and what my thoughts are.

Powder Brush. I use this to dust powder over my face before I contour or use any kind of blusher. This was the first Real Techniques brush I ever bought and I fell in love from the first use. I desperately needed a powder brush and was drawn to this because of pretty it looks. However its even better than how it looks! Its lovely and big, something I look for in a powder brush and gets the product over my face quickly but evenly.

Blush Brush. I use this for my blusher (obviously). As my second Real Techniques brush, I already knew this was going to be great and was so excited and happy when I finally purchased it. My blusher just glides on and because of the shape of this brush it seems to get the product in the perfect place without much effort on my part. I just love this brush.

Buffing Brush. I actually use this one to apply my foundation. My sister is a make up artist and said that she loved this as a foundation brush. I thought I'd give it a go and see what she meant. She was right, it is actually an ideal brush to use for foundation. Because of the shape and size of the brush it applies the product perfectly. I just adore this brush!

Contour Brush. I occasionally use this to contour. It blends my bronzer in really well and creates a nice finish. Definitely another of my favourite  brushes.

Pointed Foundation Brush. I have only used this once, It wasn't terrible but I just liked using the buffing brush too much! So this has taken a slight backseat. Its great to get the product into all the crevices though!

Detailer Brush. I have yet to use this one. i think it could be a great concealer brush or maybe to apply lipstick with. 

So thats a run down of all my Real Techniques brushes. I really want to give the eye brushes a try so that will probably be my next purchase. I have also heard that they have bought out a limited edition duo-fiber collection which I seriously need to get my hands on! I think its available for a year and then thats it. Definitely something on my wish list.

Do you have any Real Techniques brushes? What are your favourites?

  5. I want to buy these but my only concern is that if I wash them, will the hairs come out?
    Otherwise, they look magnificent!
    I love how you use the buffing brush for foundation - very clever!

    1. Thanks! :) Well I have washed mine several times and none of the hairs have come out. So you should be okay :) xx
