You can’t beat a brush from Real Techniques. I love their brushes because they are the perfect mixture of style and substance. They look great but they also do the job perfectly. Their Expert Face Brush is the best foundation brush I have ever used and I’m really loving the multi-task brush from the Sam’s picks collection.
Love, Love, Love me a bit of Real Techniques! They make some of the best purse friendly brushes there are around. I thought I had discovered foundation brush heaven when I found the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush – I cannot recommend this brush enough especially if you are looking for a more full coverage foundation look. A few months back this Sam’s Picks set was on Feel Unique for half price so I simply could not pass up an opportunity like that. Sam and Nic Chapman are the genius Pixiwoos Makeup Artists and creators of Real Techniques hence the name of the set.
I was hoping to have this post written a few days ago but I have been recovering from all my traveling and also I couldn’t make my mind up about my favourite products in 2013! There were lots of things I liked but the post can’t go on forever, so I’ve tried to be a bit ruthless. Below are the bits that really impressed me:
The brush you use with your base makes such a difference to how your foundation looks and lasts. For years I never really appreciated a good foundation brush and applied my foundation with – *gasp*– my fingers.
My first foray in the foundation brush world was my trusty Bobbi Brown flat foundation brush which I’ve had for almost 10 years. Though I have to say a flat brush wouldn’t be my go to brush for foundation. It’s good for placing product where you want to blend it but not the best for blending itself. If I am blending with a flat brush I hold it at the end and move the tip in light circles across my face to spread the product.
