Smitten Saturday: Make-Up Brushes

27 April 2013

Glasgow Mummy Sarah has created this fab linky idea which I just had to join in with. Each Saturday you write about one thing that you're loving... it could be a place, phrase, photo, food, make up, a person... anything!

Anyway, this week I'm smitten with my new Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and make-up brush roll. I'm currently obsessed with watching make-up tutorials on You Tube and my favourites are Tanya Burr and Pixiwoo who post fantastic videos showing you step by step how to recreate every type of make up look under the sun. I noticed that they both use the Real Techniques brush for applying foundation and it gives a beautiful flawless finish. So even though I'm really skint because we're going on holiday in a couple of weeks, I just had to buy it. Lucky me had millions of Boots Advantage points so I used some of them to buy the brush of my dreams! Of course I absolutely love it, my foundation looks amazing and stays put for much longer.

I already had loads of make-up brushes that were bursting out of my make-up brush holder so I thought I'd better invest in a bigger one. So I bought this one off  Ebay {sorry I don't know which brand it is} which holds 18 brushes. I threw one brush away that was looking very old and still had to double up in one of the pouches. But I love it. It'll be fabulous for keeping all my brushes neat and tidy on holiday!

So that's what I'm smitten with this week. What are you smitten with?


  1. I love Tanya Burr too!! It was my sister that introduced me to her. I am yet to invest in some brushes, but will certainly consider these ones. Your make up roll looks really professional. Thanks for joining in with Smitten Saturday :-)

  2. I love this brush case, i have one similar myself and find them so hand for storing brushes neatly. Makes them easier to find as well. :)
