Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Expert Face Brush

I didn’t intend to buy this brush, but in come in a trio with the RT Sponge, which I love, and the RT concealer brush, which I also love. I hardly ever used this brush, because I mainly use sponges or the Artis brushes to apply foundation, but recently, even though it’s summer, I wanted to get more coverage out of my foundation, without applying too many layers. So, for that, this brush is brilliant: take a high coverage foundation, or even liquid concealer, and buff it in the center of the face thinning it out towards the sides of the face. For that, it’s brilliant: blends well in the areas I need it most to obtain good coverage. It’s not the softest brush I’ve ever owned, but it doesn’t irritate my skin and it doesn’t streak, as I use a minimal amount of product and buff in circular motions.

Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques -Mini Miracle Complexion Sponges

These are perfect for blending undereye concealer. I also use them for adding a little extra foundation coverage in a small area without building up too much everywhere. They are the same texture as the full size real techniques sponges, so if you liked those then you’ll like these!

Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

never used a sponge before, my favorite way to use this is damp, the flat side for foundation, the round side for cream blusher, the point for concealer, the opposite of the round side to set my whole face when I am done, crease less in wrinkles..love it. Impressed

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Brush Collection - Eyes Starter Set

If I lost this set, I'd buy a new one ASAP! Mine isn't the same as in the picture, instead of an angled brush it has a brow/lash comb with evenly spaced fine teeth and a brush cup instead of a travel case. The eyeshadow base brush, accent brush, crease brush and thin liner brush are all the same though.

I'm not really a make-up brush kind of girl, I only ever do my own make-up so I just use my fingers for foundation, cream eyeshadow or blush, smudging eyeliner and using cream or stick highlight and most of the time I'm satisfied with how it turns out. Eyeshadow and eyeliner however - that's a different story. Brushes included:

-large base shadow brush - fluffy with longer central tuft, bristles less dense. Applies over eyelid easily and evenly without being too full-on looking like I just used my thumb.
-accent brush - smaller, denser, flatter brush, bristles cut in convex shape. Can pack on shadow for very bold solid colour, or to apply shades to smaller areas on the base shadow.
-crease brush - soft, less dense brush, looking up it has a circular shape, great for blending especially in crease, as the centre fibres are longer than the outside.
-liner brush - thin dense brush, great for gel eyeliner or setting an eyeliner with an eyeshadow the same colour over the top
-lash comb - metal bristles that will separate anything, even waterproof mascara coated lashes that are like 8 lashes all stuck together.

There's minimal shedding, and are easy to clean. Bought mine ages ago and they've outlasted most of my other brushes, despite heavier use of the RT brushes. They're soft, not dramatically so, but enough to apply and blend make-up without scratching or discomfort. It's so much easier to do various eye make-up styles with these brushes, definitely one of my best decisions concerning buying make-up.

Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques -Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges

During holiday 2017 I bought a set of RT sponges that included these minis, and I wasn't expecting to like them much. I am a big fan of the regular sized (orange) Miracle Complexion Sponges for applying foundation, but I thought the minis might be more hassle than they're worth. I was wrong, though, since these are great for blending out spot concealer on the face. I use them the same way I use the full size sponge, which means I get them lightly wet and then bounce them over what I am blending. My favorite concealer to use these with are Kevyn Aucoin SSE, which is pretty buttery and smooth regardless, but these sponges help to buff it out seamlessly. I will definitely repurchase this when the two I have bite the dust.
