Enhanced Eyes, from Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, are eye makeup brushes that offer all you need for a complete eye makeup look. Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman has a expanding collection of brushes, color-coded for each purpose: Flawless Base in orange, Perfect Finish in pink, and Enhanced Eyes in purple.

Each brush in the Enhanced Eyes collection features:

  • hand cut brush head for precision application
  • 100% cruelty-free, ultra-plush synthetic taklon bristles
  • light extended aluminum handle

SHADING BRUSH

What It’s For

The Shading Brush can be used to create subtle to dramatic eye looks.

Review

This is good for applying and blending powder or cream eye shadows. The bristles are dense enough to capture color and to use with liquid or cream shadows, without absorbing too much of the product. It can also be used to apply concealer or to set concealer with powder.

FINE LINER BRUSH

What It’s For

The Fine Liner Brush is for precision application of liquid or cream eyeliner.

Review

Newly added to the line, this detailed eyeliner tool is used for liquid or cream eyeliner. I thought it was very easy to use and I was able to create a very thin line without skipping and in one sweep.

Tips for Long Lasting Makeup

LASH-BROW GROOMER

What It’s For

The Lash-Brow Groomer is a precision grooming tool for defined, separated lashes and beautiful brows.

Review

The Lash-Brow Groomer has dense nylon bristles and a precision comb with a protective cap for storage and travel. I wasn't too impressed with this particular tool. A good mascara will separate lashes, but I suppose if you use brow gel, this could be useful.

How to Shape Your Eyebrows

STARTER KIT

What It’s For

The Starter Set contains five full size brushes and a case. It includes a base shadow brush to apply smooth color; a deluxe crease brush that has a soft, oversized design for contouring; accent brush for precision detailing, spotlighting, highlighting and smudging; a pixel point eyeliner brush with a tapered cut for dense or fine eyeliner application; a brow brush with a shape that helps you easily define eye brows, inside a black panoramic 2-in-1 brush case.

Review

It’s a decent starter set for the beginner and is also handy for those who travel. I love the crease brush and eyeliner brush. I like that the accent brush can be used for smudging, as well as for applying concealer, setting concealer with powder or to put setting powder or foundation under the lower eyelashes to prevent smudging.
