Real Techniques Brushes
Real Techniques brushes are designed by pro makeup artists Sam and Nic. The sisters have a combined 30 years of experience, both starting their careers as makeup artists soon after their sixteenth birthdays, working countless fashion shows, red carpets, editorials and collaborating with some of the top fashion photographers and magazines in the world. I love products designed by working makeup artists because they are always looking to solve the problems of pro artists.
The Real Techniques brushes have Taklon bristles and are ultra smooth and soft. Since Taklon is synthetic it is 100% cruelty-free. Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape and remain true to shape even after continuous washing.
Real Techniques are good quality, affordable brushes. I have a quite a few in my kit that are my ‘go-to’ brushes, such as the detailer brush and the lip brush. They pick up a good amount of colour, blend beautifully and wash well. Because they are synthetic they are quick to dry which is important when you have a lot of clients to get through.
If you are one to get confused by which brush does what, Real Techniques have made it easy! Each brush has the purpose it is intended for on the handle plus each colour has it’s own job. Gold handles are for base, Pink handles for Sculpting, Purple for Eyes.
If you are just beginning, the brush sets are a great way to get your brush collection started and I love the slim plastic storage containers that are included.
