Everyday Makeup Brushes

16 comments



I only really got into makeup properly around a year ago, I wore it but I was never into it so I only really learnt about makeup brushes recently and even then I was still using sponges (which applied everything awfully but I never knew!). I bought my first makeup brushes a couple of months ago and I'm so glad I did!
First of all I bought the Real Techniques Core Collection, it was the best decision of my life! I've realised how awful my foundation looked applied with a sponge and now that I use brushes it's even and blended so I don't look like a patchy orange!
I stuck with Real Techniques because they're amazing brushes and everyone reviews them well, so I bought the Eye Starter Collection, the Powder Brush and a Multi Purpose Brush too! Although I haven't used any other brushes so I have nothing to compare them to, I still believe Real Techniques are amazing brushes and they don't have a massive price tag too!
Everyday I only use some of the brushes because I don't need some of them and others I think are quite pointless!
Foundation: Buffing Brush (Core Collection)
Concealer: Contour Brush (Core Collection) 
Powder: Powder Brush 
Blush: Multi Purpose Brush (Travel Set)
Eyeshadow Base: Base Eyeshadow Brush (Eye Starter Set)
Crease: Eyeshadow Crease Brush (Eye Starter Set)
Inner Corner: Detail Brush (Eye Starter Set)
I also thought I'd show you how I store my brushes! They sit in this little star pot that I got from somewhere like Ikea, I'm not sure exactly where but you can get them from Ikea. It's a perfect size and I like to have them on my desk and easy to reach.

  4. I need to get some makeup brushes, I've heard so many good things about Real Techniques! I'm pretty happy with a sponge for now though.

  6. I love Real Techniques brushes too! I My first brush was the MAC 109 but to be honest I wouldn't spend that much on a brush again since I discovered RT. My 2 fave brushes are the RT buffing brush and Sigma F80. The buffing brush gives a more natural coverage whereas the F80 gives a more fuller coverage.

    I store my brushes in pots like these too. I have the same ones but in a heart shape. I got them from Hobbycraft :)

    1. I'd love a MAC brush but I think they're a waste of money, they're so expensive and I'd rather use something more affordable like Real Tehniques! I've got my eyes on Zoeva Rose Gold brushes though, they've had some great reviews x

  8. Truly some of the best affordable brushes out there - been using for years. Recently I've been lusting after some MUG brushes though, have heard such great things.
