Beauty In The Spotlight: Real Techniques

Beauty In The Spotlight: Real Techniques

Nothing gives a more fabulous finish to your makeup than a brush and complexion sponge, and there is no brand we trust more with this task than Real Techniques.

Real Techniques are at the forefront of makeup accessories, with their brushes, sponges and cleansing palettes of the highest quality. Whether you are a makeup novice or a serious cosmetic enthusiast, everything is formulated to make sure you put your best face forward.

What Makes Real Techniques Brushes So Special?

All of the brushes from Real Techniques are made from a synthetic material known as Taklon, which is not only cruelty-free (so suitable for vegans!), but also suitable for those with sensitive skin as it is less likely to cause skin irritation compared to brushes made with natural fibre materials.

As the brushes have been made with this high-quality material, they also wash brilliantly, stay in shape, and most importantly give a flawless finish to your complexion thanks to their tight shape.

The brand has grown from strength to strength, and what began as a core collection of makeup brushes now includes a range of different textured and sized products, alongside new exciting innovations.

    The Miracle Complexion Sponge

    For those of you that have joined the beauty sponge trend, the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is one of the best we have tried.

    You can use it with both cream and liquid textures, making it great if you like switching between foundations. The different contours of the brush allow you to do your whole face with it rather than reaching for a selection of brushes. The round side if great for applying your base, while the flatter and edgier sides can be used for spot-concealing.

    The Brush Cleansing Palette

    While you can clean your makeup brushes by hand, this can cause damage to them and not actually clean them properly.

    Using a cleansing palette not only makes washing your brushes a lot easier, but thanks to its little nodules, gets into the nooks and crannies of the brush to deep cleanse it without causing damage to the bristles. The Real Techniques Palette comes with a trial-size of their Brush Cleanser too so you can give your brushes a super deep clean.

Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
