Wondering how to transition your makeup into the summer? Sam and Nic of Real Techniques share their best tips to avoid shine, protect your skin, and add some colour for the perfect summer look.
While it heats up outside, these simple tips can keep skin light, free, and radiant. Real Techniques’ brushes help you target the important areas and allow the rest of your skin to relax. The sleek setting brush is perfect for applying powder on the nose, chin, forehead and under the eyes to eliminate shine and avoid looking too powdery. The square foundation brush can be used to apply highlighter to your cheeks and nose to make skin look brighter and healthier. For all-over coverage, the new Miracle Complexion sponge works to blend and even out skin for a more natural look.
Now is the time to break out that bright blue eyeliner you’ve been wanting to use! Summer is a great time to experiment with colour. The Real Techniques eye smudge + diffuse brushes work to soften bright colours and match the natural look of the rest of the face. Using the eye smudge brush, you can blend coloured eyeliner so it appears more subtle. Similarly, you can soften the edges of lip liner or lipstick with the lip blur brush. These brushes tone down brightness and any harshness to create a fun, relaxed summer look!

On your wedding day, go for a tried and true favourite makeup look that makes you feel your best self. In this modern bride makeup tutorial, Sam from Pixiwoo shows you how to create a soft and easy wedding day look using Real Techniques brushes.
Start with your foundation, using the Square Foundation Brush from the Flawless Base Set. Next, apply eye shadow primer using the Medium Shadow Brush from the Enhanced Eye Set. Use the same brush to apply a wash of eye shadow, then blend the edges with the Essential Crease Brush. The Shading Brush is ideal for applying eye shadow to the inner corner and along the bottom lash line. Use a dark shadow for a soft liner, using the Fine Liner Brush to run along the lash line. Curl your lashes, and apply waterproof mascara in case of wedding day tears! Avoid clumping by combing through your lashes with the Lash Separator. Use the Buffing Brush to apply bronzer to your cheeks, the Contour Brush for highlight, and the Setting Brush for finishing powder. Choose a soft liner and pink gloss for the lips, blending with the Detailer Brush. The result is a soft, easy, modern bride makeup look!
