It's so funny that I never really write about the brushes that I use to apply my makeup. Well that is going to change. I was really happy with the MAC brushes that I was using but when I heard that my favorite youtube beauty "gurus" had a brush line, well I had to try it out. I was super excited when I found out that Ulta carried the brand and they were super affordable. This is actually my second time purchasing this set! I love these brushes so much I bought a backup set. My favorite two brushes from this set are the buffing brush and the contour brush. I use those two every time I apply my makeup.
Real Techniques Core Collection
Includes: Buffing Brush, Contour Brush, Pointed Foundation Brush, Detailer Brush
Available at Ulta
I use this Buffing Brush for applying my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I spritz it with a little of MAC's Fix + or water and then I dip it into my MSF and it gives a truly beautiful finish to the skin. I get the most compliments on my skin when I do this method.
I use this Contour Brush when applying my bronzer on my temples, around my face and for contouring. It does a great job at truly giving me a defined contour but it also blends it out like a dream. After I contour, I take my Buffing Brush and blend my makeup a little more.
I have never used this Pointed Foundation Brush to apply my foundation with as it is just too small for my liking and I prefer to use a stippling brush for foundation. I have used this brush to apply my concealer and it has worked really well for me. I don't reach for this brush as often as I do the others as I use my fingers to apply my concealer most days.
The Detailer Brush is truly a tiny little brush and I use this only to define my eyebrows with concealer. It works well for that but I haven't really tried it for anything else.
Have you tried theses brushes? What are your favorite brushes?
