My Favourite Make up Brushes: Face Brushes

Following on from my last post  which you can read here, here are my favorite make up brushes for my face.

As you can see, I love the Real Techniques Core Collection. Before I got it, I was mainly using my fingers to apply foundation. It totally converted me to using brushes for my foundation and now I will never go back to using my fingers again.

Flat Top Kabuki Brush from Poundland: I got this brush in Poundland and didn't have high hopes for it at all, but it turned out to be great. It is very dense and I use it to apply finishing powder. It does shed a little, and isn't really soft, but it does a great job and for a pound I can over look these little problems.

Real Techniques Contour Brush: I use this as my blush brush. Its the perfect size to be a little more precise with blush positioning, which I like. Its also great to use with a contour powder on the cheeks and temples.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush: I love this brush for applying cream blush and also to stipple foundation over areas on my face that needs a little more coverage.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush: Available in the Core Collection, this brush really does deserve all the hype it gets. It applies my foundation quickly and evenly. Its also great for blending blush when I have been a little too heavy handed.

What are your favourite make up brushes?

  4. Can't wait to try Real Techniques brushes now! The buffing brush sounds fantastic :-)

  5. I've heard lots of good things about the Real Techniques brushes- really want to buy the core collection set now! Rosy x

  6. I've got the Core Collection for Christmas, can't wait to finally have some decent makeup brushes! Not going to lie - I've always used my hands to apply foundation, and haven't liked the finish I got on the rare occasion that I did use a brush, but I'm pretty sure that's because I only ever used rubbish ones, haha. Looking forward to trying it with a good quality brush.
