Introducing the pioneering women who created the original ‘makeup tutorial’ and their line of leading makeup brushes, sisters Samantha and Nicola Chapman of Pixiwoo and the Real Techniques makeup brushes.
From a young age, Samantha and Nicola Chapman were involved in the world of makeup by watching their mother experiment with the latest beauty trends and following their aunt, a top London based makeup artist. Keen to follow the footsteps of their predecessors and pursue their passion for beauty, the sisters carved a clear path to makeup by uploading the first ‘smoky eye’ tutorial – way before the hype of makeup tutorials.
After the public demanded more and more tutorials, Sam and Nic successfully pioneered a new and accessible platform of makeup artistry for women all over the world, recreating runaway and celebrity based looks that were highly sought after.
The concept of Real Techniques formulated when Pixiwoo reached 30,000 subscribers and followers began enquiring about which brushes were the most suitable and affordable for certain looks. Following the theory that ‘the success of makeup artistry depended on the right tools’, Sam and Nic launched Real Techniques in 2011 - an affordable range of makeup brushes that were tailor-made for the face.
Aside from creating a global beauty community, Sam and Nic have since developed collection upon collection of high-quality sculpting brushes, body brushes, blending and eyeshadow brushes for women who wish to seek an attainable yet professional method to makeup.
