Real Technique Blending Brushes

I’m a big fan of this type of brush head – dense and tight – because they’re so much easier to work with than others. I’m particularly keen on the Body Brush which is genius for applying and buffing in shimmering oils (think Fenty Molten Lava) so that your hands don’t end up shinier than your body. You can even sweep on regular body oils with them – obviously a brush has more ‘buff’ than hands so if you use circular motions as well as longer sweeps, it’s actually a much nicer, more sensorily pleasing way to do things. At £11.99 HERE (on offer – they’re £3 more expensive elsewhere and postage is free) this is something I think you’ll be very glad to have. I’ve also seen similar brushes used as self-tan applicators and I can see if you are meticulous how this might also be a more effective way to apply those but that’s way above my ability level!

The Face Blender is (obviously) smaller (£10.39 also on offer HERE) but still larger than I think you’d expect. It’s a non issue for me because I’m used to using this style of brush to apply foundation or blush and I like the grippiness of the Real Techniques version that I think gives good control. They’re both also far better if you have impaired grip and skinny handles are a no-no for you. I’d say yes to both without hesitation – we’re coming up to liquid bronzer time of year and if you’ve ever wrangled with a liquid highlighter, your troubles are over. I use mine for creme blush or creme highlighters too – don’t be too welded to the ‘liquid’ idea. I’d also be using the face version to apply oils – they’re so soft, and again that’s a sensory thing. They’re just lovely. Non affiliate HERE.
