My Real Techniques brushes and what I use them for!


I am so so sorry about my delay in posting. I totally got caught up in College work. I have exams coming up in the next few weeks and had one on Thursday so I was super ultra busy with my preparations for that. I will try to make it up with some more posts for you guys!

Today I thought that I would show you the brushes I have and use for every day makeup application and discuss them in a small bit of detail. So I have five make up brushes which are all from Sam and Nic Chapman's beautiful collection. I feel like every Tom, Dick and Harry in the beauty world has these brushes and rightly so. They are soft, they apply product on well and most importantly they are cruelty free!!

I bought a set of the four orange brushes as I really needed a broad set I could use for everyday application. I was given the pink stippling brush by my housemate in college which I am so grateful for as I use this baby so much!

Although these brushes are given a certain name such as a "buffing brush" or a "contour brush", I have found that these brushes are extremely versatile and can be used for many purposes. This first brush is the "buffing brush". It is wider than the other brushes which I find absolutely ideal for the application of products like Blush and compact powder. 

The next brush is the "contour brush" which is exactly what I use it for. I really love how my bronzer and highlighter has been turning out with this. It's extremely easy to apply bronzer with this and turn the brush in circular motions which acts as a rather effective blending method.

The Real Techniques foundation brush is probably my least favourite of the set. I really don't like the way it applies my foundation. I would much prefer to use my stippling brush for that sort of thing. I have tried applying concealer with this, but frankly I find my fingers are better tools for this!

This cute, minuscule little thing is perfect for tasks which require a bit of precision; the application of lipstick or eye shadows or liners. It's a handy little tool to have and you'll need it more often that you think. 

Finally my favourite brush of the five is the stippling brush. I don't know what it is but I just love it. From the way it feels on my face to the effective application I think this product is a winner. I apply foundation with this. It applies the foundation as little dots on my face and the science behind it just makes it really nice to blend in. I just can't describe it. I have watched a few review videos on this just because I was curious to how others used it. I have heard that some people apply blusher with it meaning it has many many functions.

So this is my small collection of brushes I am beginning to collect. I would love to know what other purposes you can find for these brushes. Also let me know what brushes you recommend.

As always I will see you soon,
