Real Techniques

What started off as a hobby became a business for sisters Samantha and Nicola Chapman. In 2010, their Youtube channel ‘Pixiwoo’ took the web by storm, and in 2011 the Real Techniques brush collection was born. Sam and Nic would vlog daily, and upload makeup tutorials, providing tips and tricks on how to achieve the latest beauty look.

The creators of Real Techniques grew up surrounded by make up, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that they have their own beauty line out. Their mother was heavily involved in makeup too so they’d often experiment with one another. More often than not experimenting on the youngest sibling, Nic.  

Real techniques make up brushes are an essential when it comes to giving your face a flawless finish, and at we can do just that as we stock the whole range. From eye sets, base sets to brow sets! In addition to the makeup brushes we also stock their sponges and cleansers. Consider yourself lucky too, as we also stock their premium collection called ‘Bold Metals’. 100% cruelty free and made with luxury bristles.

If you’re wondering how to clean Real Techniques sponge, you can check out Sam’s Youtube Tutorial to learn how to extend the life of the sponge and how to use the 3 in 1 miracle complexion sponge. If you’re not familiar with the sponge, there are three sides to the sponge:

  1. Flat side – ideal for blending foundation in the skin
  2. Pointy tip – use to cover up blemishes and concealer
  3. Round tip – blot and pat blusher onto your cheeks
