Kourtney Kardashian Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hello my gorgeous viewers!
I know Khloe and Kim Kardashian are known for their sexy smoky eyes
but Kourtney's makeup doesn't seem to get as much love. Her look is a lot less dramatic on the eyes, but is still equally as beautiful! I was inspired by the picture above for this tutorial so please check out the video if you want to find out how to do this look yourself!

- Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Natural Tan
- Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer in Tan
- NARS Blush in Taj Mahal
- MAC Mineralised Skin Finish in Medium Dark
- MAC Fix Plus (I realise this one didn't feature in the video because I forgot to tape, but I did use it to set all my makeup)

- Urban Decay Naked Palette (I used Virgin on the lid, Gunmetal on the outer v and crease, Buck above the crease, Naked as my highlight and Dark Horse on my lower lashline)
- L'oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Carbon Black
- Rimmel Sexy Curves Waterproof Macara
- MAC Eye Kohl in Smoulder
- MAC Reflects Glitter in Pearl
- Ardell Demi-Wispies Eyelashes
- (NOT PICTURED) MAC Eyeshadow in Cork (i used this as a brow powder)

- AVON Glazewear Lipshine in Nude
- NARS Blush in Taj Mahal
- MAC Lipglass in Gold Rebel

Review: Too Faced Pixie Pin Up's Palette

Welcome to the Pixie Pin-Up's palette, part of Too Faced's 2010 holiday collection.
The palette features beautiful packaging with silver glitter detailing, pop-up images, and a pull drawer for the cosmetics. (If you are familiar with the Urban Decay Book of Shadows, the form of this palette is similar).

The palette consists of:
- 1 x Travel size Shadow Insurance
- 1 x Lava Gloss Eyeliner Pencil
- 1 x Pin Point Lash Injection Mascara
- 6 x Eyeshadows

Eyeshadows are as follows:
- Leading Lady (Peach with gold shimmer)
- I Know What Boys Want (Light/Medium pink with gold shimmer)
- Lucky Charm (Pale green with gold shimmer)
- Heaven (Matte Eggshell/Ivory)
- Like A Virgin (Matte muted grey brown)
- Erotica (Dark Brown with gold shimmer) 

Pro's :
- Eyeshadows apply and blend well
- Packaging is gorgeous
- Eyeliner is creamy and glides across the skin.
- Mascara splays the eyelashes and lengthens.

- Primer is very small (not much product provided)
- More colours shimmer than matte (i prefer matte shadows to shimmer 
but that is personal preference)

I really do like this palette and recommend this to anyone who likes shimmer and natural looking pin-up style eyeshadows. The retail price is $32.00 and is great value for money considering the amount of product that you receive overall. Personally I would not use anything but the eyeshadows, unless i needed something to take with me in my purse when i go out (very small products, could fit in a clubbing bag, saves more space then the full sizes). Can be found at, Sephora, (ships to Australia too :) ), and anywhere that sells Too Faced cosmetics.
