Real Techniques Bold Metals Makeup Brushes

Beautifully presented, uniquely designed and a luxury to all, the Bold Metals collection from Real Techniques is one that I have seen on many wish lists, including my own. Real Techniques are extremely well known for their fantastic range of makeup brushes, their original line flew off the shelves and completely changed the way we applied our makeup. The Bold Metals line is the newest and most exciting set of brushes to be released by Sam and Nic, a more luxurious and desirable range that I guarantee you will want to try. 

This range of brushes feature high shine, weighted handles in beautiful shades of silver, gold and rose gold, made with synthetic bristles which unique shapes and sizes for everyone's needs. The bristles are soft and feel like a luxury to use, they are extremely high quality and they work like a dream. You can use any shade of product on these bristles and there is no staining, they wash out very easily and there is no loss of bristles. The design of these brushes is just beautiful, they are a little pricier than the original collection but you can pick them up from Fragrance Direct at a great discount price from the original. 
My collection of the Bold Metals range consists of eye brushes, base brushes and face brushes, all of which are wonderful and work extremely well in my daily routine. The brush I enjoy the most has to be the Flat Contour #301, as well as its beautiful rose gold design, it is the perfect size and shape to contour the face. I've also been enjoying using the Arched Powder #100 brush for powder and even my Bare Minerals foundation, the density is great and the softness of the bristles works nicely on my sensitive skin. 

When it comes to eye brushes I truly believe having good tools and good products will make the world of difference in terms of application, try and you will see. There are three brushes in the Bold Metals range that I love for achieving my favourite eye looks. The Oval Shadow #200 is a brush I have always dreamt of, the size is fantastic for my eyes and it means I can apply a wash of colour in one go, there really is no faffing around with this brush. To add definition to the crease I use the Pointed Crease #201 brush which does exactly what it does on the tin, it is slightly pointed to allow you to add definition and shadow into those hard to reach areas. And finally, the Tapered Shadow #203 brush allows me to blend all of those products together giving a smooth, flawless finish. Always remember that the key to a flawless eye look is to blend, blend and blend!

Have you tried any of the brushes from the Bold Metals range?
