Nic's Picks for Real Techniques

 How gorgeous are these brushes?! As a not so secret hoarder of makeup, I absolutely love makeup brushes to go along with it and have been secretly lusting over these brushes for ages. Little did I know but my best friend got me some for my birthday, without me even mentioning a thing and to go along with this I honestly had no idea I was getting them so it was such an amazing surprise.
Five amazing brushes, three of which are limited edition specifically to the set. Duo-fiber face brush, cheek brush (exclusive), angled shadow brush (exclusive), base shadow brush, eyeliner brush (exclusive). If you haven't heard of this brand before, Real Techniques is the brush line owned by Sam and Nic Chapman- Pixiwoo on YouTube. They have the normal line and then they have recently bought out their Bold Metals which all look amazing but I haven't tried yet. These brushes are a collection of Nic's favourite brushes. I love all of these brushes and am so happy to have them in my collection, the duo fiber face brush is amazing for powder and setting all of my makeup in place. I haven't found a specific use for the Cheek Brush yet but have been using this for a bit of light contouring or you could use it for highlighter. The angled shadow brush is just such a handy brush for adding colour through the crease and blending it out also. Base shadow brush one of those brushes you can't have too many of, I love it for packing colour all over the lid. I haven't actually used the eyeliner brush for eyeliner but I love it for applying concealer under my brow and making them really sculpted.

Have you tried this set? What are your favourite brushes?
