I love the new look of the 2 exisiting Real Techniques brushes – the powder brush and the base shadow brush. Both of these are well used in my collection (the base shadow brush is a particular fave) and so I am seriously pleased to have backups!

The new Cheek Brush is a joy – super soft and applies just the right amount of product so there’s no fear of overload. Also, the lovely tapered cut makes it perfect for a bit of contouring too.

I love the new angled shadow brush. It fits perfectly into the crease and is the perfect tool for adding soft and buildable definition to the contours of the eyes.

The new Eye liner brush is pretty similar to the brush I got in the Real Techniques Eye Starter set but it’s a great little number and perfect for applying gel liner with ease.

Loving everything about the Real Techniques Nic’s Picks collection. Good work Nic!! It’s available to order online HERE.
