I am pretty positive that many of you will have heard of Real Techniques brushes. If not, then most definitely you will be familiar with Samantha Chapman, the sister who puts the woo in Pixiwoo and is quite a big deal on YouTube! I am not really one to gush over YouTube gurus as such, but Sam and Nic are by far one of my favourite people to watch on YouTube. I admire them as makeup artists and avidly watch their tutorials and reviews because of their professional, yet lovely, friendly nature. I just think they are brilliant and their foundation reviews are absolute gospel in my eyes and have helped me many a time when seeking out a new foundation.
Real Techniques are a collection of hi-tech makeup brushes designed and used by Sam; neatly colour coded and offering a concise range for all aspects of your makeup application. Real Techniques have a blog which Sam actively writes for and keeps updated with tips, tricks, trends and tutorials. I was really honoured when asked if I would like to write a guest post and contribute to the Real Techniques blog, given the freedom to write about whatever I fancied, based around the brushes of course.
I was sent the complete range of Real Techniques brushes to have a little play with and to help inspire my guest post. I was instantly drawn to the Travel Essentials kit, a perfectly portable brush case housing three essential brushes; a foundation brush, a shadow brush and a powder brush. I decided to create a simple, natural look solely using these three brushes, proving that makeup on the go can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
And this was my finished look!. If you want to see how I achieved it and what products I used, then my guest post is now live on the Real Techniques blog. I am no makeup artist by any stretch of the imagination but really enjoyed writing this post so I hope you like it.
