Real Techniques Brushes - A few of my favourites
Decent makeup brushes are not cheap. It's very tempting to skimp on tools (let's be honest, they are a bit less fun than super shiny eyeshadows or dreamy highlighting powders) but a good product also requires some good tools for application. Sure, fingers are excellent, but unless you have seven hands or are as talented as Mary Greenwell, chances are you'll need to pick up a brush one of these days.
I have my fair share of classic MAC and beautiful Zoeva brushes at my disposal, but when it comes to reasonably priced, capable synthetic brushes, you really don't need to look much further than Real Techniques.
Above is one of my favourite brushes they make - the setting brush. A seriously soft, teeny tiny synthetic face brush, this applies every powder like a dream. It is so wee, and is perfect for small faces, hollows of cheeks, highlighting, and especially for setting the under eye area. I have three of them on rotation and they are fab. And for £6.99? Bargain.
I've previously harped on about their great little eye shading brush and its many uses - its a concealer application wizard - but another fantastic eye brush is the pointed liner brush(only currently available in the eyelining set). It is so small (you can see how teeny it is when compared to a Suqqu brow pen) and is excellent for cream/gel eyeliner application - or for using with a little MAC Fix + and a dark eyeshadow to create a smoky liner. It's a little too long and unwieldy for me to achieve kitten flicks, but for a no-holds-barred razor sharp I-will-cut-you wing, it's a great little tool.
