Makeup application is a very essential and important step. For good results makeup brushes can make a huge difference. However It is difficult to find good quality brushes without breaking the bank. Most drugstore brushes are bad quality but Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman are surprisingly good. I bought two sets at Ulta about six months ago and I definitely do not use all of them however I am beyond happy with the ones I do use.
The brushes in this next picture are from the Core Collection set. The Core Collection set is all face brushes. From left to right is the buffing brush, contour brush, pointed foundation brush and lastly the detailer brush.
The main one I use from this set is the buffing brush which I use with liquid foundation. Sadly the buffing brush is only available in the Core Collection set and you can not buy it individually at least at Ulta. However they have one very similar called the expert face brush. My sisters use that because I told them how great Real Techniques is and they agree. The contour brush I sometimes use and the pointed foundation brush I barely use only for under eye concealer at time. The detailer brush is made to be used for blemishes.
I am not going to go in depth with the Starter Kit. Basically it is all eye brushes and an eyebrow brush. From left to right include: base shadow brush, deluxe crease brush, accent brush, pixel-point eyeliner brush and lastly the brow brush. I like this set a lot more than the Core Collection set mainly because I get more use out of these brushes. I love the base shadow brush, the deluxe crease brush and the brow brush. The other two I rarely use. The accent is for highlighting underneath the brow bone, but it is way too small. The pixel-point eyeliner brush is too big.
I hope you all enjoyed this blog post. Overall super happy with this purchase of brushes. They are both $18 each however when i bought them they were on sale buy one Real Techniques product get the other half off. So that was great! Thanks Tanya Burr for always using these brushes in tutorials and making me realize I just had to get them!
