The brush I’m going to be talking about today is the ‘Powder Brush’, the reason I wanted to do a rave about this brush is simply due to the fact that I’ve heard literally nothing about it within the blogging community, which I find really strange, I think people underestimate the power of a good power brush and people would rather talk about the Stippling Brush or Buffing Brush that can help you to achieve a flawless finish with your foundation. People forget that powder is an important part of your foundation routine, it’s what sets your makeup and keeps it lasting all day and therefore a good brush can really help you to achieve a really natural flawless face too. The reason I know that the Real Techniques powder brush hasn’t had a lot of loving in the blogging world is because I was watching some pixiwoo videos and was amazed by how big and fluffy this brush looked, I then looked for some reviews and to be honest there wasn’t ¼ as as many for this brush compared to the other brushes in the collection and I have no idea why, it’s definitely been neglected.

This post is all about the gorgeous Kim Kardashian, I don't know how many of you follow her on twitter or instagram but the other day Kim posted some pictures of herself with her concealer and contour being worked on, I was so excited! She basically posted some pictures of where her makeup artist ‘Scott Barnes’ contours her face so that is has much more definition. What Scott does is use a much lighter concealer in order to catch the light in some places and then use bronzer in other parts of the face in order to contour and bring shade and definition to the face. Apparently it is one of makeup artist’s best kept secret in getting that really polished and sculpted face look.
Out of all of the celebrities and people in the world I envy Kim Kardash the most, she is flawless, her makeup is absolutely stunning and I just wish I looked like her. She is definitely my style and makeup icon and if I could look as amazing as she does for just one day I would be completely over the moon. The thing I like about Kim, is how perfect her skin looks, I know she has a makeup artist, top end makeup and a hundred layers of makeup but she looks seriously lovely, and not one person on this planet could deny it. She uses her makeup to sculpt her face in a way that is almost breathtaking, she makes her skin look dewy and fresh and she never looks tired or dull or run down, she just always looks her best. AHH how envious I am. I think that all of the Kardashians makeup is gorgeous and so modern and I often watch their show and want to create the amazing looks they have. Kim Kardashian’s look is definitely my favourite though and the fact that she was brave enough to post a picture on instagram to allow us lot to nose at and try and create her look just shows what a good sport she is. I decided to try this tip out as soon as possible, for one Kim said to “try it at home” and for a second I’ve wanted to look like this girl for so long that I just had to hop right in and try it.
