PSA: Real Techniques Brushes 50% off!

Hi! Real Techniques doesn't know me, but I know them! I love their affordable make-up brushes, and while stalking Reddit, I saw that someone posted a discount code for 50% off! Use Phame50 to stock up on brushes! Spend $50 and get free shipping. 

If you are new to Real Techniques but need new brushes, I can recommend the Core Collection and the Starter Set. I have both of these sets and I love them! The Core Collection includes a detailer brush, pointed foundation brush, buffing brush and contour brush and the Starter Set includes a base shadow brush, deluxe crease brush, accent brush, fine liner brush and the brow brush. 

With this sale, I picked up two of the Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge (which I have heard amazing things about) the blush brush, lash-brow groomer (I got this because of the metal bristles, I really want to try out Wayne Goss' tip for applying mascara) a kabuki brush, another starter set, a foundation brush, a powder brush, two shading brushes and another core collection set. 

A lot of my brushes are the E.L.F. brushes which are totally acceptable, but most of them are really old, and I'm ready to invest a little bit more into my collection so this is a great place to start! 

I'm sure MANY of you have some old brushes hanging about - now is a good time to trade up!

Follow Me: To Dinner in Waikiki!

Aloha, Internet! I've been away on vacation in Hawaii and it's been a whirlwind for sure. We leave next Wednesday and I've taken loads of pictures and even did a Follow Me: To Dinner in Waikiki video! I'd like to incorporate a bit more video into the ol' blog, so I thought this would be a cool way to do it. I'm definitely a novice so we'll see how it goes.
