Kardashian Kontour

Let me start by saying, I love the Kardashians. My husband, hates that I love their shows. I can’t help it! They have developed and created an empire, branding and pushing their businesses with every rise and fall of their fame. Genius!

Anyways, love them or hate them there is one thing the Kardashians know how to do well…makeup!

Yes, they have a great base to work with, but they do employ some seriously good tricks to their makeup routine that gives them all that glow-y chiseled look, most notably on Kim.

After researching (googling, duh) I’ve learned that this can be achieved by contouring with light and dark creams or powders. It’s really fascinating and similar to techniques used in stage makeup.

Kim tweeted an example today of the before and after. Isn’t that insane? Im going to be testing this technique soon, there are TONS of YouTube video tutorials.

I’ll let you guys know how it goes!

Have you ever contoured? Do you find it to make a difference?

Birchbox?

Have you heard of Birchbox?

I’m not a fan of monthly subscription things. Shoedazzle…don’t get me started.

Birchbox has peaked my interest though. Makeup, samples, beauty products?

Yes please! $10? Even better.

I went ahead and “requested” (eww) a subscription, although I’m not sure I’m going to take the plunge just yet. I mean…I have 4 weeks until I’m accepted (ughh…sounds like a weird cult).

Until then, I’ll be reading reviews and other blogs on the matter.

Anyone out there try em? Love em? Hate em? Hate to love em?
