As one of the co-stars of the UK’s number one YouTube beauty channel, Pixiwoo, sisters Sam and Nic Chapman were always going to change the industry in some way another. Both professional make-up artists as well as vlogging super stars, it’s Sam’s Real Techniques brush range that caused a well-deserved stir when it was launched a few years ago, so we thought we’d take a look at which of the high tech tools were our favourites for achieving high definition, pixel-perfect results.
Whether liquid or powder foundations are your thing, the Expert Face Brush is perfect for blending out product and buffing it seamlessly into the skin. Helping you to create a streak-free finish every time, this brush can be used in stroking or circular motions and is our number one brush for applying all foundations.
A pop of colour on your cheeks is perfect no matter your skin tone, and whether you’re in your blushers or your bronzers, we absolutely love the Blush Brush as it allows you to shade and define your cheeks at the same time. Also great for contouring before applying your blush, this brush is the ultimate multi-tasker and can even be used to powder your forehead and your nose too.
After much deliberation over what was the best eye brush from the range, we decided that you can’t go far wrong with the Starter Set Kit for Eyes. Boasting a Deluxe Crease Brush, Base Shadow Brush, Accent Brush, Pixel Point Eyeliner Brush and an Angled Brow Brush, each brush has multiple uses and is the perfect accompaniment to your eye make-up routine as it, quite literally, covers all bases.
Ideal for applying lipstick, lip glosses and stains with perfect precision, the Retractable Lip Brush features an ultra-firm tapered tip that applies colour smoothly. Also boasting a retractable design, this lip brush is an essential, on-the-go tool.
