Reveal Your Inner Artist With Real Techniques® Makeup Brushes #RealTechniques #RTLookBook

…and win a chance to meet Sam and Nic Chapman of Pixiwoo

Real Techniques®, a Paris Presents Incorporated brand, is calling all beauty lovers to reveal their inner artist through a sponsored marketing program with Allure.  They can try their hand at recreating a beautiful makeup look designed by Pixiwoo YouTube beauty stars Sam and Nic Chapman, for a chance to win an in-person makeover by the sisters. The look – a bronze smoky eye – was inspired by the trending colors of the season and created using Real Techniques makeup brushes.  
"Sam and I wanted to develop a makeup look that spoke to the warm spring weather that is perfect for longer, sunnier days," says Nic Chapman. "The soft, modern color of the eye pairs perfectly with flushed, toned skin and a natural lip, and application is a breeze using Real Techniques brushes.  All the brushes are super-soft and packed full of bristles for a high-definition result.  We can't wait to see how you look." 
Followers can visit to enter the contest by recreating the bronze smoky eye on themselves and submitting a photo.  Then, tag your photo on Instagram or Twitter using #RTLookBook and look for it on the Allure Access photo wall which can be found on or  For inspiration, make sure to watch the step-by-step tutorial from Sam and Nic on how to create the look featured on the online contest entry page. 
One lucky participant will win an in person makeover with Sam and Nic for them and a friend, including a two-night hotel stay. Two runner ups will receive a virtual makeover with the sisters as well as an assortment of makeup and the full collection of Real Techniques makeup brushes, and 15 will walk away with a prize package of assorted Real Techniques products. Submissions will be accepted through June 30.  
"I love using Real Techniques brushes because they combine premium materials with innovative design," says Sam Chapman. "In 2014, we introduced more brushes into the line that will make creating a pixel-perfect look easier than ever."
