    Comments about Real Techniques Setting Brush:

    I love this brush to set my concealer especially under the eyes and it works well around the contours of the face. It's soft and just dense enough. I really like the Real Technique brushes and this one is no exception!

        This the perfect to apply powder highlighter! It's much better than using my fingers. I haven't tried it with liquid highlight yet, but hopefully it's just as good.

            This is a great product! For someone who has such a small face, the size is perfect for adding highlight or under the eye brightener. This allows me to put a perfect amount of highlighter down the bridge of my nose and on the top of my cheekbones without overpowering my blush. Love it!

            When I ordered this brush, I was expecting it to be bigger, but despite being smaller than expected, it works great! As described, it is good for dusting highlighter anywhere. Another brush I like from Real Techniques!!

                • Q:

                  I'm planning on purchasing the "sculpting brush" from Real Techniques to contour my face with bronzer.
                  I was wondering whether the "sculpting brush" or this brush (setting brush) would work best to contour my nose, as well as blend? What would you recommend for contouring the nose with bronzer?

                    Hi Beauty Love,

                    That is such a great question! I had to stop and think for a moment because I love BOTH of those brushes so much! The Sculpting Brush is going to be much better for the larger areas of your face (cheeks, forehead, chin) where you want that contoured look. But, I think you will want a smaller brush head for contouring your nose and you will probably see better, more precise results with the Setting Brush.

                    One other brush you might want to consider for contouring your nose is the Foundation Brush. It has angled bristles (like the Sculpting Brush), but is not quite as large. I think you would be happy with either the Setting of the Foundation brush - and please let us know how it works for you!!

                    A:

                    It is a bit too large to use for eyeshadow. It works best for a controlled dusting of setting powder or highlighter.

                    A:

                    Because Setting Brush is designed for use with powder formulas, we do not recommend using it to apply liquid concealer. Instead, use a concealer brush like the Detailer Brush, which is included in the Core Collection:

                    A:

                    Due to its smaller size, this brush works best for precise, controlled application and blending of highlighter or setting powder. For bronzer/contour application, we recommend a larger angled brush like Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush (Item #: 2269621) for best results:
