The reality TV star boasts over 20 million followers on Twitter and a whopping 44 million on Instagram, and regularly shares photos of her life, work and family. Though her sisters Kim and Khloe have been known to Photoshop or airbrush the snaps they post to the photo-sharing websites, using apps such as Facetune, Kourtney prefers not to alter her appearance in the candid snaps.

“I don’t filter my photos on Instagram,” she told Britain’s Marie Claire magazine, adding that she allow herself the freedom to play with her image when posting fun pictures on mobile app Snapchat. “But I love the beauty one on Snapchat. It makes your look so good – although sometimes it goes too far and you resemble some kind of alien Barbie!”

The 37-year-old is constantly in the public eye, so looking good is always important. But as the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and Manuka Doctor cosmetics brand ambassador is an avid fan of all things natural and organic, she takes the time to investigate exactly what products to use in order to maintain her youthful glow.

“My skincare regime is quite simple. I love the Manuka Doctor toner, as it’s so gentle, and I don’t usually wear moisturiser,” she explained. “For my eyes, I really like Lancome’s Hypnose Mascara and the Stila Kajal Eye Liner. And I use an Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencil.”

For red carpet events the mother-of-three goes for a more glamorous look, and is a fan of dusting on a little of Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow on her cheeks for a pretty bronzed look.

But Kourtney finds getting her base right is important too, and has spent time learning how to best cover up the dark circles which appear under her eyes after a busy week.

“I’ve mastered concealing under my eyes, too – it’s really hard, not everyone can do it,” she explained. “The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is great for that, and for hiding spots.”
