Ask a Question

This Sculpting Brush from Real Techniques is one powerful tool.  Accentuate the features you love, change the shape and look of your face, or simply enhance your natural bone structure. With the use of light and dark makeup shades, this brush gives you the flexibility to transform your look for any occasion.

Contouring:

Using a slightly darker color from your foundation/skin tone,  apply a small amount of product to your brush.  Following the downward path of your cheekbone, apply product from the lower tip of your ear down towards your lip, stopping at the area that is even with the outer corner of your eye.  Use this brush¿s larger head and bristles in circular motion to blend contouring product.  After the first layer has been blended, you can apply more product to the area to create a more contoured look.

You can also use this brush for contouring your jawbone and hairline as well.

Highlighting:

Once the darker contouring color has been applied and blended, place a small amount of a lighter cream highlighter onto the Sculpting Brush and apply to the top of your cheekbone, just above the contoured area and blend back and forth.  This will reflect the light beautifully and give your gorgeous sculpted cheekbones even more definition.

This brush works with cream or powder products.

Secondary Use: The sculpting brush can be used to apply overall foundation as well.

Comments about Real Techniques Sculpting Brush:

I've always used a flat top brush for my contouring so I could get the edge line just right. It wasn't until I stumbled upon this brush that I realized just how easy contouring and blending could be. Its dense so you can pack product on but soft so you can easily blend it out. The handle is bulky but makes for easier control in my opinion.

        I use this brush to apply my liquid primer. The bristles are soft, yet firm. I have used sponges in the past to make sure my pores are completely covered without streaks, but this little brush does an even better job. Love it!

          Great price for such a great brush. I use it to contour my whole entire face. It puts the product on nicely and it can also be used to buff out any harsh lines your contour has made.

            Didn't expect it to be as soft as it is! Great quality for the price.. It's comparable to the pricey brushes... Used for powder and blush.. Have been using it for a week and it hasn't shed so far..

                  Hi Curious Makeup Artist (love your name, btw):

                  We have just launched some amazing cleansing products under our Real Techniques brand, but also under our EcoTools brand of makeup brushes as well. I'll tell you about some of them!

                  First, we have our new Real Techniques cleansing palette. I love this product! Most of us have been cleaning our brushes using the palm of our hands. I find that sometimes I press down on the bristles harder than I should. This palette has a multi-textured surface designed to gently work between the bristles for a better clean. And it has different sized "nubs" for your larger or smaller bristles.

                  We also have either a Gel Cleanser (from Real Techniques) or a Brush Shampoo (from EcoTools). We recommend the Gel Cleanser for brushes that get heavier use, simply because that's what that formula is designed for. Our EcoTools Brush Shampoo has slightly gentler ingredients, which aligns with our brand mission to stay as "green" as possible. Both give you amazing results, but I tend to prefer the EcoTools Brush Shampoo.

                  For in between cleansing, we've developed these amazing EcoTools Makeup Cleansing Cloths. With these, place the cloth across palm of hand. Holding brush in other hand, gently rub bristles with cloth until traces of makeup residue are removed from brush. Lay flat to air dry for 1-3 minutes.

                  Here are the Item #s for all these items:

                  Real Techniques Cleansing Palette: 2297111
                  Real Techniques Cleansing Gel: 2291546
                  EcoTools Brush Shampoo: 2297645
                  EcoTools Cleansing Wipes: 2297112

                  Hi there!

                  Thanks so much for your question! The Sculpting Brush is definitely one of my favorites, and I love that you can use it for so many things (foundation, blush, highlighting & contouring, etc). But I probably would recommend a different brush for the light and sheer finish you are going to get with a BB cream. I would recommend our Real Techniques Stippling Brush (shown here):

                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3220083

                  or our EcoTools Stippling Brush, shown here:

                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12441105

                  Both are designed to be perfect brushes for lighter product application, like BB Creams. The cut and the type of bristles used make this perfect for a natural, sheer look.

                  Thanks so much!

              • Q:

                Is this brush dense enough to use for a liquid foundation
                Asked on 2/11/2016 by makayla from Racine wi

                  A:

                  Hi Makayla,

                  The wonderful thing about the Sculpting Brush is that it does have multiple uses. Primarily, it's used for Sculpting and Contouring, but it can also be used for applying liquid or pressed foundation. It has densely packed bristles, which is what you need when using liquid products.

                  Since the brush is angled, I use the shorter bristles when initially applying product, then use the entire brush to buff it into your skin. The nice thing about the angle is it makes it easier to buff product into those little nooks & crannies, like around our noses.

                  One other brush that would work beautifully for liquid foundation is our Expert Face Brush. The bristle density is about the same on this one compared to the Sculpting, but the main difference between them is the angle & cut of the bristle. The Expert Face is cut shorter which makes it perfect for application of any type of foundation.

                  Thanks so much!
