I have spent many years, and much money, looking for the holy grail in make-up products to give me flawless skin. Despite trying products of various price ranges, I just haven’t found what I want and need – which is why I am going back to basics, and trying out some new make-up brushes and tools to see if they can enable me to succeed.
It makes sense really, that the better the tools you use the better the finished product is likely to be. For me make-up brushes are certainly “buy cheap, buy twice” which is why it’s always worthwhile to invest in a decent kit that will last you years to come.
Whilst in the past I have bought random, individual brushes I decided that I needed a full set to enable me to buff, bronze and contour to my heart’s content. Naturally, blogger favourite Real Techniques were top of my list and so I decided to invest in their Ultimate Bundle.
The Ultimate bundle features the Flawless Base Set, Enhanced Eyes Set, Miracle Complexion Sponge and Brush Cleansing Gel. The sponge is already a make-up bag staple for me, so I was excited to give the rest of the range a try too. What’s more, the addition of a cleansing gel was ideal – I will be the first to admit I am not always on top of my make-up brush cleaning schedule!
The best part of all this? The Real Techniques Ultimate Bundle has an RRP of £56, but from Just My Look it’s available for just £26.24! A total bargain, and the ideal way to get back to basics and start your professional, personal make-up kit.
Have they made the change I hoped? Well just the other day my boyfriend complimented me on my make-up, which is a rarity I will admit – and I think I can certainly put that praise down to the flawless and smooth application that the Flawless Base Set provides. The contour brush has enabled me to finally perfect my bronze, blend and highlight too… something that’s been a long time coming.
