Hi lovelies ♥
YUP its 2014….like that’s soooooo crazy to me. It was just the beginning of 2013, and now we are in a whole new year.
I hope you all had a great ring into the new year. We didn’t do anything special in our household. We all went to bed like 6 mins before the clock struck 00:00!!! But that was actually more then special.
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥I hope you all have a wonderful year and that it may even be better then 2013♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Yes, yes, yes lets talk about my fav brushes (DRUMROLL) Yup the Real Technique Brushes by Samantha Chapman.
If you do not know about the Real Technique brushes, you must be living under a rock hahahahaha. They are like the best thing since slice bread.
Samantha Chapman is one of the Pixiwoo Sisters (Sort after make – up artist) they have a YouTube channel with 1million plus subscribers.
Samantha Chapman branched out and started the Real Techniques line- they are affordable brushes, which range from $5.99 for a single brush and $19.99 for a set of 3 brushes. Which in my opinion, that’s not expensive, considering one MAC brush is $25.00 for one.
Just a disclaimer —I do not own one MAC brush, but trust be I would love to own them all. But if you are just starting out in make up the Real Technique brushes are a great way to start, you make up brush collection.
