Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

At Glossy, we want you to make the most of your makeup, and that starts with having the right tools. I mean, why invest in good-quality foundation, if you don’t have the right makeup brush to apply it flawlessly? That’s why we’ve brought you the award-winning Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

Boasting a plush head with dense bristles, this brush is the perfect Christmas helper for buffing and blending your cream and liquid foundations. It’s also Real Techniques’ number 1 bestseller! Say goodbye to triangle wedges, cream puffs and messy fingers!

How To: Tips And Tricks

Applying Your Foundation: For a flawless finish, apply your foundation to the back of your hand and dab your new makeup brush into the product. Then move your brush in circular motions across your face to gently buff and blend your foundation flawlessly into your complexion. Always remember to start with the centre of your face and work your way outwards. This will give you the best natural-looking coverage.


Cleaning Your Brushes: You should also remember to keep your brushes clean by washing them regularly. They will stay softer for longer and you’ll prevent bacteria from accumulating in the bristles. Read out expert tips here.

An Award-Winning Makeup Brush By Pixiwoo

Real Techniques was founded by two sisters and beauty enthusiasts Samantha and Nicola Chapman, or, as you’ll probably know them, Pixiwoo.

The two sisters had blossoming careers as makeup artists when, in 2008, Sam uploaded her first YouTube video. As more and more people watched and requested videos, she joined forces with Nic and the Pixiwoo makeup channel was born.

Now with over 2 million followers on YouTube, the duo has created a new platform of makeup artistry, offering women makeup technique tips and tricks.

Following their success, they decided to make applying makeup easier by creating a range of professional-quality makeup brushes tailored to the everyday woman. They launched the Real Techniques brush collection in 2011. The range has since won 8 awards and helped women like you and me transform our makeup routines.

Most of you can probably relate to this, but one of my biggest beauty pet peeves are poor quality makeup brushes that aren’t soft and shed their bristles. I know that I can always achieve a better and more professional finish if I’m using a good quality brush.

If you’ve loved this brush as much as I have, why not explore their full range?

Their Powder Brush allows you to apply powder foundations quickly and evenly, while their Blush Brush is perfect for contouring and defining your features. Shop the range here.
