Comments about Real Techniques Stippling Brush:

I was satisfied with the brush until the bristles started to fall out in clumps after less than three months of use. I apply foundation five times a week and take good care of my tools.

                  I bought this brush on a whim because it was the only stippling brush in the store for some reason. But I'm so glad that was the case! This brush is amazing!!! It makes for a flawless application. Easy to hold, you don't need alot of product at all because the brush doesn't soak up any! It's so cheap and better than any stippling brush I have bought in the past and I have bought a ton! I am going to be trying there other brushes now!

                    Brought this brush and fell in love. When used correctly, it made my foundation application look flawless. Gave me a naked look! My skin looked amazing. My foundation didn't look caked on. I did apply a primer and also used MAC Fix plus spray on the brush before dabbing on my foundation. The end result was pure awesomeness.

                        Hi Abby,

                        Great question! I actually asked one of our genius makeup artists and one of the sisters behind the brand (Sam Chapman) this question and she said that one of her favorite ways to use the Stippling Brush is actually with BB creams. It's a perfect brush to use with products that will give you a lighter or more sheer finish.

                        The great thing, though, about this brush is that, while it's perfect for sheer finish applications, it can also be used to create a more airbrushed look by layering and blending as well as applying blush or highlighting creams. It's a perfect brush for multi-tasking!

                        Thanks! Hope that helps!

                        Hi Savvy,

                        What a great question! I actually wanted to go to the "pros" to get your answer for you, so I asked our makeup artist experts & the sisters behind the Real Techniques line how to achieve a flawless look using the Stippling Brush.

                        They use the Stippling Brush with foundations where they want a very light, airbrushed finish. It can be used with most foundations (cream/pressed), highlighters, blushers, etc., but they like them best with BB Creams and Tinted Moisturizers.

                        The brush gives you wonderful, all over coverage. Apply product and work from the center of the face outwards and blend. Where you may need extra coverage, press the brush with product directly on those areas of your face (essentially, you "stipple" the product on) and then blend again.

                        Hope that helps!

                      Will this brush be good to use with my Pür cosmetics 4-in-1 powder? I know that they made a chisel brush specifically for that foundation, but I already have this brush at home, as well as the Urban Decay blurring brush.

                      As a beginner I want to pick a brush that can I multitask a lot with and can get the most different uses out of. I know this one works with all types of makeup but so does the sculpting brush. which one should i choose?

                        A:

                        GREAT question! If you're a beginner, there is a lot of information out there, and a lot of it can be overwhelming! But you are already one step ahead of the game, thinking about multiple uses for your brushes! That's one of the things we love so much about the Real Techniques brush brand – they are designed with more than one "use" in mind! So, as far as which brush would be better to multi-task, we think you would be best to go with the Sculpting Brush. The Stippling Brush is *terrific* and there are a lot of ways to use it, but we think you are going to find that you can use the Sculpting Brush in at least 4 different ways. Here's how we like to use it:

                        • Primers/Base Foundations: this brush is perfect for liquids or pressed liquid primers & foundations. The shorter to medium bristles can be used in a buffing motion to apply product onto the skin evenly, and you can use this brush for a layering technique, depending on how you want your base to look.
                        • Powders: this has a similar cut to a kabuki brush (it's just not as large), but it's still great for applying powders. The angled cut of the brushes helps you get powder (and foundation) in all those little crevices.
                        • Blush/bronzer: use this with bronzers in a sweeping motion across areas of your face where the sun would "kiss". Use with blush (liquid or powder) on cheeks to angle & buff for a perfect blush application.
                        • Sculpting/contouring (what it was primarily designed for): the angle on this brush makes it perfect to apply product to create a sculpted and contoured look.

                        Also, Real Techniques has a great brush cleanser, and cleaning your brushes will be key if you're using multiple products on one brush. Check out that cleanser here:

                        Thanks so much for your question, and please let us know if you have any more questions as you start to build your makeup routine! :-)

                        When switching in between product "forms" (such as liquid and powder), we recommend cleaning your brush to prevent any glazing effect on the powder product, and also to ensure that the products apply smoothly to your skin without any build-up on the bristles.

It does not have a mattifying effect, as this has more to do with the product you're applying rather than the applicator you're using.
