    You have a darling voice! And the lighting looks great in you video. Any lighting system you’d recommend for filming?
    The Real Techniques brush is my favorite as well. For some reason, I like this one better for my foundation application than for cream blush. :)

      Aww thanks! In that video I used one stand/light/umbrella from this lighting kit from Amazon (at about 45 degrees between me and the camera) and one garage clamp light with an Ottlite CFL bulb right in front of me :-) A very pro setup let me tell you! :-) :-) :-)
      I don’t totally love the RT stippling brush for cream blush either – I think it’s a little bit big – but the Wayne Goss 01 is perfect for it!
