Did you know what Sunscreen does to your face?

I have been a freak about applying sunscreen whenever I go out. Got my hubby also in the habit of strictly using it but what does this video change about it? What are the real facts? See what it actually does to your face. I would hint you to slathering on more often. Its not just for your skin but a fine layer between you and cancer as well.

This happens to be my third box from My Envy Box subscription. I had got the last two boxes in pink and this was quite a refreshing surprise because I have an immense love for the color and scent of lavender. And it was a double win because there is a product to match the theme. I had some potpourri in lavender and couldn't resist throwing some beside the box for the photos. The box is  definitely a sturdy one for storage too. Now, that was the first impression. Lets head to the products now!

Why you 'Need' 70% Alcohol in your Makeup Kit

I have been taught strictly and hence talking about the usage of alcohol in my makeup workshops countless times. More than talking, we have used up almost two bottles till now. But why? Do we love to get high while we do makeup ? Haaah Nah! This is Isopropyl Alcohol which is poisonous for consumption. The kind that is used to soak wipes that are individually ripped out and rubbed vigorously before getting a needle in your arm at a hospital. When I was starting the workshops it was such a challenge to find it in India. Then I was in Saudi and my cousin got two bottles for me generously from Riyadh. Well, drinking alcohol the ethanol alcohol is banned but this is available as no one can get intoxicated with this but poisoned. So this is to keep out of reach of children. And sadly, when my students asked me if this is available in India, I had no answer. So this post goes out for everyone because I have finally found where to get it. Learn how and why to use it too!

My Real Techniques Haul + First Impression Quick Review

After losing my mind reading loads of reviews and raves I finally get my hands on these gems. I didn't know if I needed them but it would be actually after purchasing that would prove the reviews right or wrong. A friend recommended these and highlighted the must haves. So, hence gave the duo fibre (stippling) brush and the eye kit a pass. There was a 20% of sale on the site and why not?

So, what are these? Nick and Samantha Chapman are the youtube gurus (pixiwoo) who have designed these amazing brushes. These are one of these things that are designed by youtubers that have made a complete hit throughout the world of makeup artistry from beginners to professionals. Yes, they are that good!
