Designed by professional make up artists turned YouTube phenomenons, Real Techniques brushes are the brainchild of Sam and Nic Chapman. Authorities on beauty and creating the chicest, most on-trend looks, Sam and Nic’s hugely successful YouTube channel has amassed more than 165 million views, and the launch of their Real Techniques brushes have seen the sister act cemented in the beauty hall of fame.
Having an aunt who was a top makeup artist in London, Sam and Nic grew up around makeup. They both decided to go into industry as makeup artists, Sam attended a makeup school for two years before working with major companies, such as Estee Lauder. After getting a platform of about 30,000 subscribers, they decided to take their beauty dreams to the next level.
In 2011 the Real Techniques brand was born, it combined a number of elements such as fun and professional quality. Rather quickly their brand began to grow and reach make-up enthusiasts all over the world. As of today Real Techniques have brought out more of a variety of brushes to cater for a wide audience. The Real Techniques Make-Up Brushes have something for everyone! They have a variety of different collections from their standard slightly more simplistic brushes, to their other more high-end and eccentric collections.
Real Techniques offer a wide range of singular brushes, as well as a large amount of sets. These sets are designed for different purposes! The Real Techniques Flawless Base Collection is designed to give you every brush necessary to create the perfect for your makeup – including a foundation, concealer, powder and contour brush. The Berlin Collection is a set of slightly more funky brushes which contains a brush which will allow you to achieve a full face of makeup. Containing a stippling, contour, buffing, base shadow and a crease brush. The bold Metals make up brushes have transformed the brand as it gives a luxury feel, however, these are slightly more expensive and mainly come as individual brushes. They also provide a couple of different kits which are dedicated to the shaping and maintenance of brows between them.
In more recent years we have seen the brand bring out beauty sponges making any makeup application easy and flawless. All of the individual brushes along with the packs are good value, meaning everybody is able to achieve their desired look.
