Take the latest brush set from Real Techniques. Created by a make-up artist and you-tube beauty guru, Samantha Chapman (or Pixiwoo as we've endearingly known her), who knows tools of the trade can make or break a job sometimes so it's fantastic that she has created a line of great value duo-fibre brush set of three that makes achieving a flawless air-brushed look easy and fool-proof.
The face brush is a flattened round shape that is tapered at the tip to create a dome shape. It is perfect for very light weight application of pigmented powders – think bright coloured blushes. On liquid foundations, I dot the product on skin and then stipple it in so that the results like it was achieved with an airbrush– ie, even and diffused, giving me that perfect coverage that looks good even under a magnified mirror.
On cream based foundation I apply the product on my hand and the finish off the final blending with the duo fibre face brush to achieve the airbrushed look.
The contour brush is great for working in tricky areas like around the nose and near the eyes where the face brush would be too big for precise work. It is also perfect for contouring with a matte bronzer to create that killer high-cheekbones look.

I’ve now incorporated these brushes into my everyday routine and it is now a welcomed addition to my family of makeup brushes. If you don’t yet have duo brushes in your beauty ‘toolbox’ then I highly recommend you look into these versatile and value-for-money brushes
