I have been hoarding my Real Techniques Brushes for a while now and I finally decided to open them all at once so that I could start using them! I bought most of these overseas from Boots before Real Techniques arrived in South Africa. I love that the brushes are so affordable yet good quality.
Below is the Real Techniques Core Collection, as well as the Setting Brush. The Buffing Brush and Contour Brush are my favourites from the Core Collection. I love using the Contour Brush to apply blush, it is a good size for precise application and quite fluffy, which makes blending a breeze. The setting brush is amazing for setting under-eye concealer, you can read more about it here. Let’s not forget the Miracle Complexion Sponge pictured above, which is a great affordable alternative to the Beauty Blender. It has a pointed side to blend the smaller areas of the face, and a flat side which is great for the rest of your face. I like to dampen it with a spray of Avene Thermal Spring Water or The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist before I blend my foundation.
Below are a couple of new Real Techniques brushes, including the famous Expert Face Brush, which is great for applying flawless foundation! The Silicone Liner Brush is so good for applying gel liner, it has a silicone tip instead of bristles. The Retractable Bronzer Brush is great as a stippling brush, instead of a Bronzer Brush. I also have the Powder Brush and the Foundation Brush, which I have decided to add to my blog sale here, since I have more than enough fluffy powder brushes and foundation brushes.
Below are two other Real Technique Collections, the Duo-Fiber Collection and the On Location Travel Essentials. I haven’t seen these two collections in South Africa yet. The Duo Fiber Contour Brush is amazing, I love using it to apply cream blush.
Lastly I have the Blush Brush, Stippling Brush and Retractable Kabuki Brush. The Blush Brush is really nice and fluffy, and picks up pigment really well. It blends like a breeze too. I love stippling brushes, I prefer them over any other method of applying foundation. The Kabuki Brush is very similiar to other brushes I own, so it is on my blog sale here.
