‹ Battle of the Brushes: RT Buffing Brush vs. Expert Face Brush ›18.8.14
It is no secret that I love Real Techniques brushes; they're good quality brushes that are incredibly affordable. So many people love the Buffing Brush but a lot like the Expert Face Brush too. Which one do I prefer? Well it depends on what I'm trying to do.
Converting to become more of a powder foundation kind of girl, I always reach for the Buffing Brush. It is dense enough to give good coverage and the flat top makes it easy to cover large areas. I strictly use this brush for foundation, both liquid and powder, though I occasionally use it to blend in concealer over a large area when I accidentally apply too much.
The Expert Face Brush is more of a multi-tasking brush. It is a lot like the Buffing Brush but pinched to become a hybrid of a classic flat foundation brush and the Buffing Brush. This is a great one for liquid foundation, especially when you want to blend close under the eyes and around the nose. It is also a fantastic brush for contouring as well as long as you apply with a light hand. Jessica has a great video on the many uses for this Expert Face Brush so for more ideas, turn to her video now.
The good thing about the Expert Face brush is that it can be purchased individually. The Buffing Brush comes in the Core Collection which comes with three other face brushes. It is totally worth the extra money to get some other brushes though. I personally use the Buffing Brush more than the Expert Face Brush.
Do you own both brushes? If so, which one do you use more often?
