SO I RECENTLY DID A POST ON 2 PRODUCTS FROM REAL TECHNIQUES. I TESTED BOTH THESE PRODUCTS OUT WITH MY RCMA VK PALETTE IN #11. THE FINISHING PRODUCT WAS AMAZING! THE FOUNDATION BLENDED OUT FLAWLESSLY. I DID NOT NEED TO THIN IT OUT OR NOTHING. IT BLENDED SO WELL ONTO MY SKIN IT DIDNT LOOK CAKEY OR ANYTHING JUST PURE FLAWLESSNESS!. FIRST I APPLIED MY FOUNDATION SHADE ALL OVER THE FACE WITH THE REAL TECHNIQUES STIPPLING BRUSH & IT WAS PRETTY AWESOME AT BUFFING IT INTO MY SKIN. I USED A LIGHTER SHADE FOR CONCEALER & LET ME TELL YOU THIS FOUNDATION IS PRETTY GREAT AT HIDING IMPERFECTIONS & ALL TYPE OF BLEMISHES INCLUDING DARK CIRCLES. I USED A DARKER SHADE TO CONTOUR MY FACE BUT I BLENDED IT OUT WITH MY Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I ALSO USED THE SPONGE TO BLEND OUT THE CONCEALER COLOR. BOTH THESE TOOLS WITH THE FOUNDATION MAKE A GREAT TEAM. I FINISHED OF THE FACE WITH RIMMELS STAY MATTE PRESSED POWDER IN TRANSLUCENT & I SET MY CONCEALER WITH BEN NYES BANANA POWDER. I LOVE HOW GREAT IT ALL WORKS IM THINKING OF PURCHASING MY SHADES IN SINGLES & I HONESTLY REALLY WANT TO WORK WITH THIS ON MY CLIENTS IN THE FUTURE.

After i saw how much everyone was into using the beauty blender obviously I wanted one to. lol . But they do run on the pricey side, so I settled for the one from Sonia Kashuk, from Target. I did like the sponge but it was really thick? It didn’t really grow in size when wet, I had to literally Beat my face to blend the products. The finishing product was amazing though.
I recently purchased got a hold of the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge & let me tell you it blends like a dream. Its so soft even when wet & it blends everything so well. I love the feel of it the texture, how it feels on my skin how it smooths everything out. I tried it out with my RCMA foundation palette, which looked amazing. The foundation was so thick but it blended everything out so easy. I even used it to set my concealer & it applied that very well. It is an amazing product compared to the Sonia Kashuk one & half the price.
*DONT FORGET THIS TOOL MAY ALSO BE USED FOR OTHER THINGS I BLENDED OUT MY LIQUID BRONZER & CONCEALER WITH THIS. IT COULD BLEND OUT CREAM PRODUCTS AS WELL.*
I’ve always loved the Real Techniques expert face brush. I love how everything is blended very well. Recently i purchased the Real Techniques Stippling brush & I fell in love with it. It blends the product so well on to the skin, to the point were it doesn’t look like makeup. I tested it with my RCMA foundation with it to really put it to the test. The foundation is somewhat thick & heavy but it looked amazing on the skin with the brush!. It was so easy to buff into the face. & Let me tell you this brush is so amazing it made me fall in love with my RCMA palette.<3 With this treasure i don’t need to buy a MAC brush.
