Real Techniques is a makeup and brush line created by the talented sisters, Sam and Nic Chapman. You may know them from their popular Youtube channel, Pixiwoo. They post fabulous tutorials and I find them to be both charming and knowledgeable. They have had a brush line out for a while but their new Bold Metal range is a total game-changer. It feels so luxurious. Each brush is weighted for optimal control and comfort. They feel substantial and expensive. I also really love the metallic bases and the supersoft bristles.
I have to confess that I have always used my fingers to apply makeup but since attending this launch I have become addicted to these Bold Metal brushes and I think they make a big difference. They also look gorgeous on your bathroom counter.
In addition to a fun photo booth and a makeup station (where there were artists on hand to do touch-ups using the Bold Metals brushes), Sam and Nic also appeared from London via Skype to introduce the line.
You can learn more about the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection on their website. They are currently for sale at Ulta and Boots.
