Real Techniques brushes

Hello lovelies, Happy Pancake Day!! :) I hope you all have lots of lush pancakes and aren't going easy on the toppings. My favourite type of them is American pancakes topped with maple syrups and a side of bacon. I'm making myself hungry just talking about it haha. :)

Today I was looking through my makeup draw and I realised I had yet to do a post on my wonderful Real Techniques brushes. I finally invested in some a couple of months ago and they are money well spent. I also like the fact that Samantha and Nic Chapman are behind them, they are makeup experts and know what they are talking about.

 Starters set (base shadow brush/deluxe crease brush/accent brush/fine liner brush/brow brush)

I have wanted to try Real Techniques brushes for a while now, I have heard wonderful things about them and they look of good quality. I bought the eyeshadow brushes as I am actually quite bad at doing smokey eyes so I hoped this would improve this and my technique. I have found it so much easier doing my eyeshadow since having the brushes and it really helps with direction. I'm not suddenly a makeup artist or anything like that trust me, but my eyes look less scary and more pretty. I'm really happy with the set and I got mine from Amazon.co.uk for £11.83 compared to its usual price of £20.99 which was amazing!! All brushes add something to my eyeshadow and can result in a stunning look.

Blush brush

My old blusher brush was looking a bit worse for wear, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out and buy a Real Techniques blush brush. Especially since I absolutely loved the starter set and thought they were really good. The blush brush highlights my cheekbones and my blusher looks spot on. What I really like about the brushes is that they are really soft and have good wearability.

My Real Techniques brushes collection is slowly expanding, I hope to get a foundation and powder brush next. The Real Techniques bold metal collection brushes are also stunning and I really want to get my hands on some. They look amazing , but they are slightly out of my price range sadly. :(


  1. I have also invested in some real techniques brushes and I love them. I would highly recommend getting the powder brush - I ADORE IT!!!! It's super soft and my powder is always nice and even when I use it :) x

  2. I definitely will be getting the powder brush!! The brushes are all so lovely and soft :) x

  3. I really need to get me some Real Techniques brushes! I am definitely going to look on Amazon as it sounds like you got a bargain there! Great post :) xx

  4. Aww thank you!! I shopped around a bit to see where they were cheapest before buying them and Amazon seemed like the best place :) xx

  5. I have the Real Techniques Expert face brush :) love the brush :D It's always great to expand makeup brushes.

  6. I have the expert face brush from Real Techniques and I love it!!
    I also bought the kind of sponge that is supposed to be like the famous Beauty Blender and it is also really great! However, My favorite way to apply foundation is to use this brush :)
