Up until the last couple of years ago I’d never really used makeup brushes apart from applying some blusher. However, once I got hooked on youtube videos and started watching some of the tutorials by Pixiwoo I saw the difference brushes make in applying makeup. Makeup brushes in general can be quite expensive but the Real Techniques range are good quality at a decent enough price. These are the 5 brushes I would recommend
A really big brush that is perfect for powder or bronzer
Expert Face Brush
This is a rounder brush primarily used to apply foundation as you buff it into your skin. However, lately I’ve discovered that this brush works well for contouring as the size of the brush fits perfectly in the hollows of the cheeks.
A really soft brush that is for what its name would suggest but again could work for bronzer
These are 2 brushes I’ve picked from the eye brush collection by Real Techniques. One is a flat brush used for eye shadow and the other is rounded great for blending in eye shadows
Hope you found this post interesting, let me know in the comments what your staple brushes are
