Top 5 Real Techniques Brushes

Being a big Real Techniques fan, I thought it would be useful to choose my top 5. I love all their brushes, but these are the ones I use the most often and recommend to everyone. 

In no particular order:

  1. RT Blush Brush- This brush is so multi purpose. I use it for bronzer, blush, contour and even foundation. It's a great size because you can easily bronze up the face with it or apply a nice sheer wash of blush. Although it's quite large, it's perfect for a very light natural contour.
  2. RT Duo Fibre Contour Brush- A brush I actually use for its intended purpose! The shape fits perfectly into the contours of the face and because it's duo fibre, you can't go over board. Great for heavy handed people like myself! 
  3. RT Expert Face Brush- I actually prefer this to the Buffing Brush for foundation. There is something about it that blends the product in so much better. The shape is great because you can get those hard to reach parts of the face. 
  4. RT Setting Brush- This is probably the Holy Grail brush for me out of the five. I love this for concealer. It blends product in so well and makes everything look incredibly seamless. The size is perfect for under the eyes and around the nose. It is the best concealer brush. 
  5. RT Base Shadow Brush- I love this for everything eyeshadow. Whether you want to pack colour on, blend it out or just apply a sheer wash, this brush is excellent. It also works brilliantly with cream products.
All five of these brushes are super soft. I've had them for ages and they're holding up really well. If you're in the market for some new brushes I highly recommend giving these Real Techniques brushes a go. I will be doing a post like this for Zoeva brushes too, so stay tuned for that. 

What are your favourite Real Techniques brushes?

Thanks for reading,

  2. I absolutely love the blush brush and the duo fiber collection as a whole! The powder brush is a favorite of mine too. It's made powdering and bronzing all over super easy!

    1. I really like the powder brush but it's just so big- it's a bit of a nightmare to wash! Haha x

  3. I only don't have the duo fibre contour brush but I love all the others! Especially the blush brush and the base shadow brush :) use both of those most days. Great picks :) xx

    1. I definitely recommend picking up the duo fibre set- all the brushes are really good! x

  4. The only RT brush I have is the setting brush and I love it for highlighting ! I ordered the core collection and blush brush the other day, can't wait for them to arrive

    1. I've never used the setting brush for highlighter, might have to give it a go! Hope you enjoy your new brushes :) x

  5. I really want to get my hands on the blush brush and eyeshadow brush! I have the starters face set (don't remember what it's called), and the brushes are amazing but they're so hard to come across her in Canada :( Great post, though!

    1. That's such a shame! Have you tried ordering from Feel Unique? I know they stock the brushes and I think they ship worldwide x
