Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection

A luxury brush range from everyone's favourite brush brand

When it comes to YouTube, without a doubt my favourite channel is Pixiwoo by Sam and Nic Chapman.

From a professional make-up back ground, I love their make-up tutorials and have learned so much from watching them over the years.

Aside from the channel, their Real Techniques brush range is now a staple in my beauty regime. I use the base brushes every single day, despite having brushes in my collection that cost four times the price, and they clean up as good as new with every wash.

Earlier this year the girls launched a more luxury brush range called Bold Metals. Some of the shapes of the brushes in the range are really unique and the packaging is really elegant. Here are my 3 favourite brushes from the new collection:

101 Triangle Foundation

Before I got this brush, I’d been using the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or Buffing Brush and had completely gone off flat foundation brushes. This, however, has got me back into the flat finish. A triangular brush, you can use the flat side as you normally would a flat foundation brush, and the pointed sides to get into nooks and crannies like the sides of the nose. The precision at the tip works really well to get under the eyes and around the eyebrows, and the brush itself is very large so you can cover lots of the face quickly and evenly. I love it.

Tapered Blush

Ideal for a sculpted blush finish, this is great for really precise blush application. My favourite way to use this is to use a fluffier, softer brush to add some contour and shape to the cheekbones and then use this to simply add a pop of colour to the apples of the cheeks.

201 Pointed Crease

One of my favourite things to do with a smoky eye is to add a layer of really smudgy, soft colour to the lower lash line. The Pointed Crease brush is perfect for doing this! Apply your colour with a firmer brush, then take this to really buff out and soften any harsh lines. The dome shape is still small enough to ensure that the colour is contained in a small space but it helps to give that flawless blend to your edges. This is also perfect for packing some darker colour into the corners of your eyes to add intensity to a smoky eye.

I’m completely obsessed with Real Techniques brushes for everyday, but the Bold Metals brushes serve slightly more specific purposes, making them a¬†perfect gift or addition to a pro brush belt.
