What you need to know about Real Techniques

Real Techniques are one of the most sought after brands in the world. Here's why they're so popular!


Since their introduction in 2011, Real Techniques Makeup Brushes have been a central part of the digital evolution of makeup. Pioneered by sisters Samantha and Nicola Chapman, Real Techniques are brushes designed by makeup artists for ease of use and are supported by tutorial videos to help take your Makeup game to the next level!

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 runway and celebrity-based looks that were highly sought after.

How to clean my real technique brushes?

Cleaning your Real Techniques brushes is essential in avoiding skin problems, such as infections, as well as prolonging the life of your brushes.

You should clean your brushes often to stop the build-up of bacteria and other nasties on your brushes.

To clean your brushes, follow these steps:


  1. Run your brush under water to get rid of some of the excess makeup.
  2. Then, use a dish soap or ordinary shampoo and work it into the brush head. Dish soap is often antibacterial so it will disinfect the brush as well as remove oils.
  3. Hold your brush downward when rinsing, so all the product goes straight into the sink. When the water runs clear, squeeze the excess makeup from the brush.
  4. When the brush is damp, stand it in your makeup brush holder or over the edge of a table to dry. Make sure the brush is damp, not wet. When a brush is left to dry when wet, the water goes into the base of the brush and can break up the glue between the brush head and handle.
