If you don't already know, when it comes to makeup brushes, the beauty blogging community has been obsessing over the Real Techniques Makeup Brushes. This makeup brush collection comes with tons of different brushes which can be distinguished by color. I own 2/3 colors from the collection. The only color that I don't own is the purple brushes, which are eye brushes. I just wanted to share my personal opinion on the only two brushes I own. So, enjoy!
Stippling Brush - The stippling brush was the first Real Techniques brush I have ever owned. I have very mixed thoughts about this brush. Whenever I used this brush with foundation, it always left foundation steaks. I always had to use a sponge to pat the foundation to remove any of the streaks. Over time, I just stopped using the brush and just used the sponge instead.
When applying foundation with any stippling brush it is important to dot the foundation all of the face for an even application. Whenever I would start dotting the foundation on my cheeks after a few minutes I would get a burning sensation in my cheeks. It is most likely because of my bi-polar skin being sensitive and then normal. I then started using it with cream blush, but I find that the product blends/looks better with my fingers.
Powder Brush - I got this for my 15th birthday, which was something I needed after my Ecotools powder brush went a-wol. It honestly is a really good brush! The bristles are very soft and it has very wide volume. It nice fluffy enough to be used to apply setting powder, but dense enough to apply a powder foundation. I have yet to try applying liquid foundation, you might be thinking that won't work, but yolo ( yeah, I said it).
Will there be more Real Techniques Brushes in my collection? - I will definitely be seeing more face brushes in my future. I am interested in the dense foundation brush and a few eye brushes. Though I want these brushes, I have been eyeing the Bubbi brushes for the longest time!!
