I am a total nut case when it comes to brushes. The joy of opening and using a fresh one THAT very first time is just beyond words. So recently, I repurchased the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. Now don't roll your eyes already, I am not going to review it as I think there are enough of them available online. Its just hard not to praise it in a post of its own.

Its a joy to use every time. Just look at the precision of the HAND CUT bristles! While many people say they don't like the thick handle, I found myself actually loving the sturdy feel about it. My skin has a mind of its own, hence I have a variety of colors on my face and a medium to high coverage is much needed. I enjoyed building up my foundation according to the make up look that I was creating without it being heavy. That was a true winner for me.

Since the bristles are small and compact, you do need a little extra time to create a flawless look. If you use liquid foundations like me and HATE ( totally) the boring flat brushes, I would highly recommend this one. However, I do use the same ol' method of putting a few drops on the back of my hand and then using the brush to lift the foundation instead of dropping it straight onto the brush itself. Once the foundation is all in place, I use a thick beauty blender to even it all out.

Last night was spent watching 'How To' make up videos on YouTube and falling in love with this brush all over again. There are so many talented ladies out there who make it look so easy and here I am, still trying to master the art of winged liner. I must tell you, by the time I learn to balance out the wings of my liner, the make up trend would have changed.

Till then ... muah!
