You know me with blusher. I love it, hate it, dust it on everyday, don’t wear it for a month. I’m a flush floozy. But for days when I do decide to blush-up I’ve found the perfect brush pairing for it – the Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Face Brush from their new Duo Fiber  (heads up: limited edition) collection. Before I was all about the Real Techniques Multi-Task Brush (the brush my boyfriend, Mark, so dutifully demonstrated its multifunctional powers when he used it to apply foundation during my makeover) but the new brush in question makes blusher even more foolproof. Thin fibres pick up just the right amount of product and thicker, more deeply set hairs blend it in. It’s like its own blusher tag team. Even with something über pigmented – like my current cheek jam, Smashbox Halo Long Wear Blush in In Bloom* – it works. Foolproof I tell ya. 

The latest Real Techniques drop has been getting some flack but from the three in the set, two are making daily appearances in my rotation. The aforementioned, and the Duo Fiber Contour Brush which makes the perfect swirler-oner for a light wash of foundation. Finish with some fingertip blending, done. The set comes in at £23.99 from FeelUnique. So the quest to own every single Real Techniques brush continues…

    I wanted to buy these brushes but I was intimidated by them. I could be wrong but it seems like you might have to be confident with your skills to use them. They’re rather pretty.
