Review: Real Techniques Stippling Brush

I love using brushes to apply my make up, there is something about applying make up with my fingers that just doesn't work for me. Friends often pointed that my foundation was not blended properly, so In desperation I invested in some brushes and haven't looked back. There has been so much hype in the blogosphere regarding the Real Techniques brush sets. As a disciple of the MAC brush cult I was fairly dubious that anything could break my love, especially one's so reasonably priced.

Real Techniques is the brain child of make up artist and blogger Samantha Chapman and a lot of bloggers have really raved about two of the brushes in particular, Expert Face Brush and the Stippling Brush. I am going to review these separately as well as the brush collection in later posts.

What they say:This dual fiber stippling brush is our trade secret for creating air brushed high definition coverage with all make up types

What I say: I pop a little of my favourite tinted moisturiser onto the back of my hand and gently press the fibres into the liquid. The fibers are super soft and the handle is a great length making it really easy to buff the foundation into the skin using small, circular strokes. The surface of the brush is very small, so my arm started to ache after a while, but the result is worth it. I wouldn't recommend the using the brush if you are short of time but it is perfect if you want to look airbrushed for a night out. The Stippling Brush is better for light coverage, so I prefer to use it on good skin days. I finish the skin with powder using another Real Techniques brush, a review to follow.

I loved this brush while I was in America and it was too hot to wear foundation. It is the perfect brush for tinted moisturisers, BB or CC creams.

Tip: make sure your skin is well moisturised; the brush really pushes the makeup into all the cracks and flakey skin really shows up.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush, RRP £11.99, available in Boots and Superdrug
