Why do I love these brushes?
These brushes are quickly becoming my favorite face makeup tools to use! They are raved about in the beauty world and justifiably so! They are all extremely soft to the touch and blend makeup like a dream. They also don’t shed at all and I typically wash my face brushes once a week to deep clean them. These have held up well and look brand new once they have dried (love this). I also like that you can really see when the brushes need a bath. It helps me know they are 100% clean and good to go! Real Techniques brushes are also affordable. They range typically around the $8-10 range. In all honesty, they could probably charge more and I still would buy them…they are that good! I also want to make a special note about the handle on these brushes. They all stand up on their own and don’t knock down easily (see photo below). This makes it so convenient when you are doing your makeup and for storing them too! It’s a feature I haven’t seen with to any other brushes I own or on the market…it’s a really nice touch. Next time you are at Ulta give these a look! I highly recommend these to all.
Do brushes really make a difference?
YES! I am a firm believer that the outcome of your look is based on & dependent on the tools that you use. It doesn’t matter how much it costs…it matters the quality! I’m talking no cheap handles, no stiff or rough bristles, and no shedding. Obviously you can get away with using your fingers or a cheap brush every now and then…but honestly I notice a HUGE difference in my makeup application after using my favorite face brushes! Try these below and you can see for yourself…

"Ultra firm and broad for application and blending of cream or liquid foundation"
This is my newest addition to my Real Technique brush collection. Since I switch up which foundation I use almost daily, I wanted to have an extra foundation brush to use when my others were dirty. This one blends my foundation seamlessly and never leaves streaks. It’s one of those brushes that can help blend out thicker foundations that can go cakey if you use the wrong brush. If you are in the market for a new foundation brush, I would really recommend getting this! This brush will work with all textures of foundation…I have tried it with liquid (L’Oreal True Match, Givenchy Photo’Perfexion) and more creamy (Laura Mericer Silk Crème) and they all apply beautifully. If you are looking for a foundation brush for medium coverage to full coverage then you will really like this! The dense bristles allow for product layering and heavier application if desired.

“This dual-fiber brush is the trade secret for creating airbrushed, high-definition results with all types of makeup”

“Contour and define cheeks for flawlessly blended, high-definition results”
This brush is multi-purpose. Although it is a blush brush, I really like to use it for my loose setting powder. I definitely notice a difference in how the powder applies when using this VS other brushes. This brush seems to buff everything out so much better! As the name suggests, this works great for blush too. This is a really good brush option if you tend to have a heavy hand when applying blush and it looks overdone (or bright colors too)…the bristles prevent you from over applying. I would imagine this could work as a brush for highlighter too! As you can tell, this brush is versatile so it’s nice to have it in my collection.

“Evenly apply powders and mineral foundations for smooth, high-definition results”
This was my first Real Techniques brush purchase. I bought it to use for bronzer but I actually really like using it for my pressed face powder. It’s a large fluffy brush (but not too big) that helps fuse together foundation & powder. This brush is different than others I use for face powder because it doesn’t make my face cakey, never applies too much in one spot on my face (an issue I have with stiff cheap brushes…you probably know exactly what I mean!). I really enjoy using this brush with my Cargo Blu_Ray Pressed Powder. As I mentioned, this can work for bronzer too! This brush is a must for me because I don’t have anything like it. I was worried it would be too bulky but it’s not at all…it’s actually become a must-have beauty product for me. If you wear a full face of makeup then you will really like using this to set your makeup look.
These are just 4 of the Real Technique face brushes that I have in my personal makeup collection. You can find these and others at your local Ulta or online. The price is more than fair and the quality is outstanding…and that’s not a word I use often! These brushes have become staple items in my makeup collection and are used in conjunction with others every single day. If you are looking for new ways to apply face makeup then you have to check these outs as soon as possible! I know you won’t be disappointed!
