Hope your week is going well. This article isn’t your usual OOTD, but it is surely one that was very demanded. Since a lot of people have been asking me throughout the years what am I using to do my make-up ( tool wise). I know there are a lot of brushes and make-up sponges out there and I know that a lot of them are good, but my personal favorite brand will remain Real Techniques ! I have been using their brushes and sponges for years now and it never let me down.
I also like Sigma, of course, but Real Techniques has my heart for years now.
Of course, you can find their brand available at Notino! And they even have a couple of brushes that I don’t have and that I’m super interested in discovering ( they’re already on my wish-list ) !
But for now, let’s have a look on the brushes that I do have and that I have been using for years now –
I started out with the brushes that you absolutely need for setting your foundation, powder … in other words, the Original Collection Base ! As you can see, I have about 4 brushes from this collection, but these are enough for my amateur needs. I’m not a professional make-up artist; I like playing with make-up, making myself look pretty and all, but that would be it. I didn’t do any make-up courses or anything else, I just learned along the way and I can assure you that with the right brushes and make-up, you can have an amazing result, as if it would be professional. 😉
Now I know that two of them are missing from the photo .. I wonder where they are hiding in my room? Hum… Anyway, the EYES collection suits all your needs for a perfect eye make-up – the brush that I use the most is the Base Shadow Brush ( the biggest one in the picture), for applying make-up. I know I can go very pro and use all the others every time I do my make-up, but that baby applies so nice your eye-shadow that I don’t feel using anything else. 🙂
The Original Collection Finish aka my latest brush collection added to my set, is perfect for finishing your make-up – applying your finishing powder, highlighter, sculpting … I think this would be in all my favorite set of brushes in whole as these are the ones that I use the most ( like each time I apply make-up, even the 5-minute make-up !).
And last but not least – make-up sponges ! These came afterwards, once the make-up sponges hit the market, in the Real Techniques “world” it was very short after the brushes because they immediately saw the potential of these tools. I had a red-pink one at the beginning and the yellow one ( the Miracle Complexion Sponge ), which was a big discovery for me at the time. Now, I have added to the family the whole Original Collection featuring this popular make-up sponge that I have been using for years now.
I’m very curious about the other 2 sponges, but I’m sure they’re super cool as well !
And now I also have a special Real Techniques case for my Miracle sponge 😀 – you can find yours at Notino if you want to travel in style 😉
I hope you liked my ‘little’ article on Real Techniques and I hope to be back with more “beauty”-full stuff soon !!
