The ones that slip under the radar..
The real techniques blush and powder brush. Very, very good. Very, very important must haves to own. However, far less hyped and receive far less blog coverage than the likes of the buffing, expert face and concealer brushes. Why? Some might say it's because it is far easier to find a nice powder and cheek brush than it is a foundation one. This is true. But these two brushes make me really excited.
Lets start with the Blush brush. This is actually quite fiddly to use with blush. It is quite large, so only if I am in a pinch do I use the tiniest amount on the very tip to blend out. What this is really cut out for is the most natural bronzer application you ever did see. I have always been a bit scared of bronzer because whenever I applied it, it just looked like brown muddy stripes. After trying this brushed, I realised in fact, it wasn't the bronzers, it was the brush I was using. The RT Blush brush really disperses the productly lightly and evenly giving you a sunkissed glow.
Next up, the Powder brush. This is a massive bad boy of a brush. I use it exactly as its name suggests, for face powder. Again, I love to wear powder to work for make-up longevity however, I fear the dreaded cake face. I don't think it's actually possible to get that with this brush and it works fabulously with products such as the Rimmel Stay Matte, Chanel Loose Powder, Hourglass Ambient lighting powders, and my current favourite the Seventeen Miracle Matte.
It's also worth noting, that if you are ever tempted to buy a new RT brush (single or in a set) Asda now stock them, and every time I've been in store they seem to be heavily discounted. I got these for £5 and £6 respectively. Madness.
Are you a fan of RT brushes? I love them, but have also just ordered some of the ebay brushes everyone seems to be loving recently!
