Real Techniques | The Perfect Pair

Sunday, 2 February 2014



If I had to pick two brushes to apply my makeup with each day, I'd choose the Real Techniques buffing brush and blush brush. For me, Real Techniques brushes are high quality and affordable - two properties I look for when investing in brushes. The brushes are synthetic and the soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish. Sam and Nic Chapman have got it spot on in my opinion.

What I love about RT brushes is that they're colour coded which makes things easy in the morning if you're caught up in a bit of a mad dash. The orange/gold are flawless base brushes, the purple are enhanced eyes brushes and the pink are perfect finish brushes. Most of the brushes are self standing and come in a panoramic case for an all round practical and fuss-free application experience.

I use the buffing brush for my foundation and I find it blends the product in beautifully and doesn't streak. Using circular motions, the brush creates a flawless finish and I find this brush miles better than any flat foundation brush I've ever used. For powder, bronzer and blush, I use the blush brush which is super soft and fluffy. The product applies and transfers lightly with no extra collection of product.

I've currently got my eye on the stippling brush as I've heard this is a rival for the buffing brush so I'd like to put that to the test. Gradually I'd like to have the whole collection of brushes including the duo fiber collection. Can you tell I'm a little obsessed? I've even converted my mum and sister who both use RT brushes too. If you haven't explored RT then I'd recommend starting out with the core collection kit which you can buy from Asda or Amazon for around the £15 mark.

What makeup brushes do you use? Have you ever tried Real Techniques brushes?

  1. I love the RT brushes! But I have also just recently come across some brushes on eBay and one of them may even be better than my RT buffing brush... but its early days yet!

    1. I haven't tried the expert face brush for liquid foundation. Is it better than the buffing brush or have you not tried it?X

    2. I've not tried the buffing brush so I can't compare it :( but if this works perfectly for you, I wouldn't change it :D xxx

  3. I'd love to try the RT brushes - I find that there's only one or two from each collection that I really want though, which is annoying, I wish I could pick and choose my perfect collection!

    1. You'll just have to buy the ones you like separately but I'd imagine it's more expensive that way! The core collection is definitely worth buying X
