As of late my makeup routine has become super simple, mainly because I start work far too early for my liking meaning I just shove on enough makeup to look human and just about presentable, which also means i’m not using as many tools. I thought today i’d talk you through the five brushes that have become my daily essentials when it comes to applying my makeup.
Starting off with the brush that begins my makeup routine, and that is the Real Techniques Setting Brush. Just like most beauty bloggers I use this to blend in my concealer, which I apply under my foundation. I love this brush as it’s just small enough to get into the areas that I apply my foundation, whilst also buffing it in really nicely. Moving onto foundation, I have a number of foundation brushes that I use but more recently i’ve been using this Domed Foundation Brush from eBay. It’s just the perfect shape to really buff in your foundation and gives such a lovely finish. Also this brush was cheap as chips in a set of four, for less than a fiver!
Moving onto the fluffier brushes within my daily routine, starting with the Real Techniques Powder Brush and probably the biggest brush I own. I use this mainly to apply any sort of setting powder just to remove any shine from my face and for me it’s just the right size to cover my entire face especially when i’m in a rush! Another brush I use for powder based products is the Real Techniques Blush Brush. I often use this instead of the previous brush if i’m really in a rush, but usually this is used to apply any contour or blush to my cheek area. This is probably my favourite brush of all as I can use it for more than one product and applies powder based products like a dream.
Finishing off with the part that completes my face, my brows. Without them, my whole face would be lost and for this I use the Real Techniques Brow Brush. The angled shape of this brush just works wonders when filling in my brows and gives a lovely shape to them, that defines them really well. I think I love Real Techniques brushes, haha!
So those are all of the brushes that I use pretty much on a daily basis. Which brushes do you opt for on a daily basis?
