If I'm honest I don't normally use make-up brushes I pretty much always have used my hands. I once a while ago got into the habit of using a foundation brush but I lost it and never bothered to replace it. But recently I felt like it was brushes that were missing from my make-up routine. I wanted to buy a proper set of them and are good quality.
After hearing lots of good things about the 'real techniques brushes' by Samantha Chapman I purchased her base/flawless core collection which I got from Boots. The bristles are really soft and smooth and the handles are a lovely peachy bronzed colour.
The set includes a detailer brush for definition and to conceal under eye circles, a pointed foundation brush, a contour brush for highlighting and my favourite a buffing brush. The buffing brush is best for powder and to blend all your make-up.
I am really pleased that I decided to purchase this set (for the pretty good price £21) I have noticed a quite a big change even thought it does now take longer to do my make-up.
