Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman
Make-up enthusiasts everywhere have been going crazy for the long-awaited arrival of Samantha Chapman’s collaboration with make-up brush favourite, Real Techniques.
Samantha Chapman rose to fame as a make-up guru, showcasing her talent on YouTube, and has so far reached nearly 500,000 subscribers. As for the brushes, the collection comprises two small sets and a few individual brushes.
The Real Techniques brushes have a sleek, light-weight design. All have a flat bottom, ensuring the brushes are self-standing – a brilliant idea, making application quick and easy. All brushes are colour-coded: orange for base brushes, pink for finishing brushes, and purple for eye and brow brushes. Each brush has its name clearly printed for easy reference. Real Techniques brushes are hand-cut and made with ultra-soft Taklon (synthetic fibres) and are animal cruelty-free.
The Core Collection contains everything which is needed to create the perfect canvas when applying makeup, including foundation brush, contour brush, and the highly raved-about buffing brush. The starter set is purely focused on the eyes, including five essential brushes to created startling definition of the eyes. Both kits come in simple yet effective packaging, storing the brushes neatly but also doubling up as a stand – handy for when in use. The single brushes include a stippling brush, kabuki brush and powder brush to name a few.
Brushes start from £10.99 for individual brushes ranging up to £21.99 for sets. Real Techniques brushes are available in larger Boots stores around the UK, or online here.
