Kabuki Full Coverage Brush by Bare Minerals

Hello, 
the Kabuki Full Coverage Brush by Bare Minerals is made of goat hair and is extremely soft. It has a short handle and a big head which is very good for buffing. It offers great coverage.



The bristles pick up a lot of foundation so I have to be careful with the application. I also had a Flawless Application Brush which has a long handle but unfortunately the handle broke. Anyway, I prefer kabuki brush better because it it perfect for applying the makeup and good for the travelling.
I use Kabuki brush on the bigger parts of my face and for the smaller parts I use Baby Buki brush:http://joannascosmetics.blogspot.fi/2014/11/baby-buki-bare-minerals-brush.html

Aubrey Organics Silken Earth Translucent Base - Porcelain loose powder

Hello,


Aubrey Organics Silken Earth Translucent Base in Porcelain is a great loose powder.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    It works well together with my liquid foundation: http://joannascosmetics.blogspot.fi/2014/10/giorgio-armani-luminous-silk-foundation.html
On its own it may not provide enough of the coverage. Especially for someone like me who has less than perfect complexion:).

It  does accentuate a bit drier parts of my face but I think most powder do. It doesn't clog my pores and does not settle in fine lines around the eyes. It evens out my skin tone and makes the pores looking less visible. The skin looks naturally matt. But what I like the most about Silken Earth Translucent Base is the light weight feel. It is something that not many powders can offer. 
On my face Silken earth looks darker, I would say more beige than porcelain but it still looks very natural.

Silken Earth Translucent Base has great cinnamon smell. This delicious smell reminds me of Christmas:).

I apply it with Kabuki Full Coverage brush from Bare Minerals and I achieve an HD effect. It still looks like mine own skin only better.

Baby Buki Bare Minerals brush

Hello,
Baby Buki Bare Minerals brush is made of goat hair. The brush is soft and offers a good coverage. Thanks to its small size it is perfect for using in smaller areas. whole face or on the parts which you want to highlight: cheekbones, brow bones, cupids bows, etc. I use it with Benecos Natural Highlighting Powder in Stardust:  http://joannascosmetics.blogspot.fi/2014/11/benecos-natural-highlighting-powder-in.html to highlight my face: under eye brows, cupids bows and over the cheekbones. Sometimes, when I need an extra glow, I use it on my whole face.
