Makup on Aisle 64 Favorite Things — Real Techniques Brushes

I thought I’d start off the first Shop My Faves post with Sam and Nic Chapman’s Real Techniques© brushes.  I absolutely love them.  The brushes are so soft – so dense and they feel great on the face.  They’re light weight and they handle well allowing you to apply makeup with ease.  Whether using the base shadow brush for a “smooth, flawless foundation of color” or the multitask brush for “effortless application of powder, blush, and bronzer,” the Real Techniques brushes are must haves.

I bought my first set of Real Techniques brushes on recommendation from a sales clerk at Ulta © Beauty.  It all started with me visiting my daughter and having a glam session while there.  I realized if I was going to keep up the new look, I needed some new tools.  When I got home, I went to the Mac counter at Macy’s and bought all the makeup, but I wasn’t quite ready to shell out what Mac was asking for brushes, so I went to Ulta.  It was a bit overwhelming to look at all the different brands and types of brushes.  I had a picture of one of the brushes my daughter advised me to get, but that was it.

I asked a sales clerk which brand she would buy and she said Real Techniques© so that’s what I got.  I couldn’t wait to get them home so I could practice with them.  And — there was a note on the box that said, “Get the best from your brush… watch step-by-step tutorials http://www.realtechniques.com”.  That’s just what I needed — a step-by-step tutorial.  Sam and Nic made it look so easy and I could watch as often as I needed to.  I was hooked.  I also learned that each brush filled a different need.  When I went back to get more brushes – I bought Real Techniques ©.  I’ve got quite the collection.  Here’s what I have:

The Real Techniques Core Collection

  • The Real Techniques Starter Set
  • The Real Techniques Travel Essentials.
  • The lash-brow groomer.
  • The setting brush.
  • The stippling brush.

Which particular ones are my favorite things?  The multi task brush and the buffing brush.  The multi task brush came in the Travel Essentials set.  The buffing brush came in the Core Collection.  I use these two brushes every single day.  The multi task brush is my blusher – I use it to apply cream blush but I can also use it for powder.  I use the buffing brush to make sure my foundation and concealer are worked in.

It All Started Like This…


How did Makeup on Aisle 64 get started?

It all started like this!

I had a glam session with my daughter and came home with a new look.  It was such fun and I felt amazing.  I wanted to keep the look going so I checked out a few makeup tutorials on YouTube and beauty blogs — on YouTube and online.  It was just fun.  Then I got the idea to do a video myself and put it on Facebook for my friends and family to see.  They all had a good laugh but overall, they liked it.  I made another and another and they liked them, too.

“You should do a beauty blog!” I was told.

“Oh, shut up!” I said.  Then, I got to thinking, “Why not?  Why not give it a try.  As my thoughts began to percolate, I realized there were a lot of things I’d need to sort out, including what to call the blog; how to get it designed, and much, much, more.  It was daunting to say the least, but I decided to give it a try.  In the next day or so, I will figure some of this out and publish a welcome post as I begin this journey.  In the meantime, here are the videos that started it all.  Check them out.  I hope you enjoy them.
