Brand Focus : Real Techniques

by - November 18, 2016

Hey everyone,

I absolutely love Real Techniques brushes, but sometimes it can be quite daunting walking into a store and seeing all the different types of brushes. So, today I will share with you which brushes I have and also do a little review of each. Enjoy!

The first brush I ever tried from Real Techniques was the Shading Brush. When I first got this I used it for applying, blending, the lot, and it wasn't too great at multitasking like that. Now, I have more brushes I use this to deepen the shadows in the outer corner. I swirl this around in which ever shade I use and start buffing it into the outer corner and up into the crease. Using this brush creates a gorgeous smoky look which looks great for a smoky eye! This brush was only £7.99 which is an amazing price for the quality of the brush itself.

My nest purchase from Real Techniques was the Starter Set. This is a set containing 5 eye brushes that are perfect for completing any eye look. It has : a Base Shadow Brush, a Deluxe Crease Brush, an Accent Brush, Fine Liner Brush and a Brow Brush.

The base shadow brush is a staple in my make up bag, and in my opinion should be a staple in everyone's make up bag. It creates a perfect base for any look or just makes any shadow look flawless.

The deluxe crease brush is the best for blending in any eyeshadow and makes any look seem polishes and finishes flawlessly.

The accent brush is perfect for smudging shadows underneath your eye.  The bristles are really soft, without being too soft that it doesn't blend enough.

I love to use the fine liner to create the perfect cat eye flick. I get this look by tracing the line with dark shadow on my wet fine liner. Then, I just go over the line with my liquid liner. This just makes it easy to remove if you go wrong.

Finally, the brow brush is incredible for creating soft, natural brows or bolder brows - whichever you prefer.

The other brush I have from Real Techniques is the concealer brush. This isn't my favourite concealer brush as it does leave your face a little streaky if you don't blend it properly. However, if you get it right, it looks perfect. This is because the brush itself is quite dense so you have to know exactly how to blend it etc. etc. I wouldn't recommend this to any first timers in make up but if you are more experienced this could be the new concealer brush for you.

So, thank you all so much for reading, and I will see you all very, very soon,

Love Lou
