( Real Techniques Stippling Brush – £11.99 )
Before owning this brush, I was a big fan of the Real Techniques brushes, already owning my fair share. But this brush seemed to crop up so often in Youtube videos that I felt that I needed to add it to my collection. And now, I am so glad I did. It is ultra soft yet this particular brush is denser as to hold its shape for more precise application. It also has bristles of two different sizes, one being shorter and denser and the other being fewer and peeking over the top of the others by a few millimetres. Due to this, when applying powder or cream, the brush applies the product lightly, whilst taking away excess with the lighter, longer bristles. This softens the look of the makeup application and stipples it, rather than applying it opaquely. I have been using this brush to apply cream blusher as it lightly stipples it over the cheeks without applying too much product. I have also been using it to apply blush powder and again it blends it beautifully into the skin. On a few occasions I have also brushed the bristles lightly over the top of my Nars Multiple before applying it to my cheekbones. It could also be used for foundation and it would be worth giving this a go to see if you like it for this purpose. So overall, it is really multipurpose and a brush I really love now. Highly recommended!
