What's the best piece of advice you have in regards to using a make-up brush to apply product? “Build the product. Start small and add as you need.”
If there was just one brush a women should have in her kit what would it be? “The Deluxe Crease Brush! You can use it to apply foundation, concealer and shadow.”
The make-up sponge is having a resurgence at the moment. Talk us through using the sponge vs the brush. “It depends on the look you are going for. If you want a more light make-up application you would use the sponge damp to apply foundation. If you want a more airbrushed look you would use the expert face brush.”

About The Line
Designed with pro makeup artists Sam & Nic Chapman, Real Techniques brushes combine high-tech materials with innovative design to make creating a pixel-perfect look easier than ever:
Taklon bristles are ultra plush and smoother than the hair you'll find in other brushes. Since taklon is synthetic, it's 100% cruelty-free. The soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light – from sunlight to harsh indoor lighting.
The color-coded system corresponds to the key steps of makeup application so you can create a flawless base, enhanced eyes and the perfect finish like a pro.
Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application from dense coverage to a soft, delicate finish.
The collection is suitable for a wide range of products and every makeup need – from powders, creams, and liquids to mineral makeup, highlighter, and shimmer.
Brush names on the handles make for easy reference when creating your favorite look.
