Review : Real Techniques Core Collection

Hello . . How is everyone doing?
So recently ive had a lot of questions regarding make-up, techniques and equipment . equipment being the most popular. Something that ive learned the past few months is that the brushes or sponges you use are the most important element in applying make-up. Now we all love our high-end pricey items - every girl does but using the wrong equipment wont do your make-up justice :-(
What I do is buy high-street brands: Rimmel, No7, collection 2000, MUA etc. Recently ive been using the No7 Radiance boost foundation and im really loving it. When I first got the product I was using a random foundation brush from Superdrug, however I found that the strokes of the brush were visible on my skin. Not such a great look :-(.
After much research I decided to invest in a good set of make-up brushes and the Real techniques were top of my list. Id been lusting after these for some time but at £22.00 I thought they were a bit steep . However I decided to take the plunge & buy the Core Collection . WOW im so glad I did !!
There is four brushes in the pack: Contour brush, Buffing brush, detailed brush and the Pointed Foundation brush. I user these brushes everyday and use each on for a variety of purposes
Buffing brush
To blend in my foundation, blusher, contour and highlight
Contour brush
To apply definition to my cheekbones, forehead and nose using a brown eye shadow
Detailed brush
To apply and blend in concealer, and blending in a white eyeliner pencil around my eyebrows
Pointed foundation brush
To get in those hard to reach places i.e. corners of the nose and to help blend in areas where I need a bit more concealer

So that's my advice on what make-up brushes to buy. These can be purchased individually from around £8.00 up but I decided to get a set to save money in the long run. These 4 brushes would last you a long time and they would be the only 4 you would need.
They can be purchased at Boots & Superdrug
What are your favourite make-up brushes?
