“It’s all about the brush.”
If you ever sat in a makeup chair, you have probably heard your makeup artist tell you this and it is true. You could have the most expensive makeup in the world, but if you don’t have a well-made brush, your makeup will not look its best. For many of us with freckles, you want a brush that is going to let your face makeup breathe without looking cakey. And, let’s not forget the coveted eyebrows. Most redheads have very light eyebrows and a great applicator brush can perfect those arches.
Now the question is: what brand is the best and which is ‘redhead friendly’? As you know, all products on HowtobeaRedhead.com are tested and deemed safe for redheads, so when we came across the brand Real Techniques it was a no brainer that redheads would love every single brush. They are ultra plush and smoother than the hair you’ll find in other brushes. Made with taklon, a synthetic material, Real Techniques brushes are 100% cruelty-free. The soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light – from sunlight to harsh indoor lighting. And, each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application from dense coverage to a soft, delicate finish.
Last but not least — we have a special place in our heart for sisters — and Real Techniques makeup brushes were designed by pro makeup artists and sisters, Sam + Nic Chapman. The stars of the Pixiwoo YouTube branched out to create their own line of makeup brushes, all of which are of the highest quality.
