These Affordable Makeup Brushes Will Replace Your Expensive Ones


Real Techniques has made a name for itself thanks to its high-quality brushes with prices that won't burn a hole in your wallet. The cult-favorite brand has expanded into several luxe-like collections, but its newest range currently has everyone talking. The PowderBleu brush collection will feature soft blue bristles inspired by that of a blue squirrel. (Yes, they're real. Yes, they're adorable.)

Real Techniques

While creating a makeup brush inspired by a seemingly mythical creature may sound strange, these brushes actually have the softest bristles ever, and are meant to resemble the texture of a squirrel's own tail. (Now, we must note that no squirrels were harmed in the making of these gorgeous brushes.) Real Techniques developed the synthetic collection by using its FauxBleu™ technology to mimic the squirrel's fur and engineer the brushes so that they pick up powdered formulas with ease. The six-piece collection includes a kabuki brush, finishing brush, powder brush, complexion brush, shadow brush and a powder puff. Apart from being an Instagram-worthy set, you won't find a brush over $25 in the whole collection. It drops on July 1 on realtechniques.com, so mark those calendars!
