I'm sure everyone and their mum has heard about Real Techniques brushes, they have quite a lot of hype around them - and in my opinion quite rightly so! I absolutely love them as you might already be able to tell from my rather large collection! It all started off with the Core collection and since then my collection has grown quite a bit. I think they are great, affordable and amazing quality! So I thought I would show you my collection.
Buffing brush - This is one of my favourite brushes from Real Techniques, I think the core collection is worth getting for this brush alone! I really love it and use it everyday to apply my foundation.
Contour Brush - I use this brush everyday too, mostly to apply highlight or I sometimes use this to contour.
Foundation Brush - I don't reach for this brush very much, I don't use it for foundation but I have used it to apply concealer under the eyes which it works well for but I prefer using a different brush for that.
Detailer Brush - This is one that I don't use very much either, but it's nice to apply lipstick.
Deluxe crease brush - I use this to apply and blend in concealer under my eyes which it works great for, and gives a really nice finish.
Accent brush - I use this brush to apply highlight to the inner corner of my eyes and sometimes to blend shadow underneath the lash line.
Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush - this brush I don't find a use for I don't think its precise enough for eyeliner.
Base Shadow brush - I love using this to apply eyeshadow and blend it out.
Brow Brush - I don't use this brush, I use a Mac brush to fill in my eyebrows, I find this one to be a bit too thick to fill in eyebrows.
Stippling Blush - I use this for cream blush, it's makes cream blush much more easier to apply.
Blush Brush - I bought this blush for powder as I thought it would be too big for blush, but I actually use if for blush mostly as its tapered I just apply blush to the centre and the rest of the bristles blend it out, I also use it for bronzer which it is good for if you want a subtle contour.
Powder brush - This is great for applying powder over the face as its so big.
Expert Face Brush - I use this brush for foundation when I'm not using the buffing brush, I tend to reach for the buffing brush more but I still love this one too.
So there you have my collection, I use a lot of these brushes everyday! And I'd really recommend trying them if you haven't already! some of the brushes out of the core collection and starter set I don't get much use out of like the detailer brush, foundation brush, accent brush and brow brush but all of the others I love! Let me know if you have tried Real Techniques brushes and what you think of them?
