What are Real Techniques?
These are some of the best brushes for makeup that you’ll find, and these are most-certainly some of the best around, matching in my opinion, with the Lottie London Brushes. Incase you’re not familiar, it’s a line by well known YouTuber Samantha Chapman. I first ran into these brushes when talking to a friend about some of the brushes we have and also would like to get, Each Real Techniques brush has it’s own name and it’s always written on the brush itself which is always useful.
The brushes themselves are quite expensive for what they are and I’m not sure if I would buy a lot of them all at once, I’d have to, if I was going to buy them, I’d have to get one or two a month until I have all of them, I wouldn’t dare buy them all at once haha, that would be very damaging to my bank account since, they’re £10.99 or more a brush, or a set for just under £21.
In the Real Techniques range there are lots of different brushes, they’re split into 3 catagories; face, eyes and finish, as you would expect, the face brushes would be bruses for your foundation, concealer and primer (if you choose it), the eye brushes would be for your eyeshadow, shading brush (for shading two colours of eye shadow together) and liquid eyeliner if you decide you want to apply it with a longer handled brush (always easier). And the finish catagory would be pressed powder, bronzer, highlight and contour (if you choose).
What can they be used for?
The Real Techniques range have a vace selection of brushes, here is a list of all the Real Technique brushes and
what the could be used for;
– Stippling Brush: Apply liquid or cream foundation with this brush, and also cream blushes or highlighters.
– Blush Brush: As the name kindly suggests, use this for blusher, or as well as a pressed powder, bronzer or highlighter.

Eyes (The Starter Set):

– Brow Brush: Can be used to fill in and shape your eyebrows as it’s angled, it’s good for that job!!

All-in-all I think these brushes are such good quality at such a low price, although they are pricey just for a makeup brush, the quality of the brushes is amazing and I love how all the brushes do exactly the job that you anticipated for them to do.
