Is anyone else completely obsessed with realTechniques brushes? I know I am…that is why I am labeling these two my HG brushes right now. I love them…they definitely are my favorite!
The realTechniques line by Samantha Chapman is both affordable and high quality. You can find them at Ulta, or online, and the blush brush runs $9 and the big powder blush runs $10. You can build a collection easily on a budget. The handles are color coded per part of you face (foundation/blush/eyeshadow) and are thick and easy to grip.
What I love about these brushes is that they are synthetic and cruelty-free but handle powders, creams, and liquids like much more expensive brushes. The powder brush is huge and dense and the blush brush is tapered so you can really enhance your cheekbones. I am loving it! Both are very big and can even stand up by themselves which comes in handy sometimes.
