About a week ago, I received the brushes set “Sam’s Picks” from Real Techniques !
I always used simple brushes before, even for my foundation, I never had great brushes, and some of my friends told me many times how great Real Techniques brushes are.
I couldn’t wait any longer and I bought them, I was so impatient to get my own set and start my make up with new tools !
First of all, I have to say that I washed them before trying them. I don’t really like to use brushes if they are not clean (I know, it’s hard to be born as a cleaning freak, but I can’t help it) 😉
I have been trying almost all of them and I can tell you something : these brushes are just amazing ! They are so soft, so I believe even sensitive skins can use them without fears.
I may say these brushes aren’t made for specific uses, we can use each of them the way we prefer …
So, here is how I use my brushes …
This multi task brush is a big fluffy brush, I use it mostly for applying my blush.
This setting brush is used to complete any look, I use it when I apply some highlighter on my cheekbones.
This buffing brush is used to apply powder or mineral foundation, but I use it with my liquid foundation, the result is great and it looks so natural that people don’t even realize I wear foundation !
This brush should be used for liquid foundation, but for me it’s really too small, so I prefer using it for applying my concealer which is much easier.
The essential crease brush is a soft eye brush for easy contouring. I love it, it’s just so simple to work with any eye shadow.
And finally the fine liner brush ! This brush is really thin, I haven’t used it yet (I don’t wear eye liners these days at all !) but I think it’s great for a precise application.
I am still new with these brushes, I think I need more different kinds of make up to try them and give them a real appreciation. But for now I am more than happy with them and I think I will try to buy some other brushes (like the stippling brush and the kabuki one).
I think it’s a great investment and it positively can change your make up routine !
