If you are going to use makeup, you also have to take care of your skin. After using eyeshadow and eyeliner our skin around the eye area might get clogged and dry out. So we must keep them clean and hydrated. The Origins Eye Doctor does exactly that.
The area around the eye or the skin around the eye is very delicate. Age shows on the face, when wrinkles and fine lines start to appear. We can't stop them from happening but we can slow down the process. Applying a hydrating cream will hydrate and keep the skin smooth and hydrated. Origins has one of the best eye creams. This one doesn't smell all that good but it does the work. 4'5

OMG! These brushes are the best! Got these from London. We don't get them here in India. You could find an online store which ships to India though. Real Techniques Brushes are made by a YouTube Beauty Guru, Samantha Chapman AKA Pixiwoo.
This is the Core Collection set by Real Techniques Brushes. It comes in a foldable case with four face brushes. The case says what each brush does, so I don't really have to explain anything. The brushes are light weight with a steel handle and a rubber end. The bristles are super soft and dense. My favorite is the buffing brush. It is amazing on the face and blends the foundation really well. These brushes are synthetic haired so they would pick up more product than a natural haired brush would. I feel like these are way better than Mac brushes even. None of hair on the bristles have come out. My Mac powder brush is having hair fall like a dog! So disappointed!
If you live in the US or UK, good for you because you can find this in any drugstore like Ulta or Boots. They are cheep and very good quality brushes. Real Techniques also makes a variety of brushes. Go get yours now! 5/5.

Bonjour! Lately, I have been into the whole contouring my face thing. Looked at a lot of bronzers so far and as my skintone is on the dark side, it is really hard to find a dark enough bronzing powder to contour with. Most of the bronzers are very light on my skin or as same as my skintone. I'm a Mac NC45 if you were wondering. But I found this gorgeous bronzing powder by Guerlain while browsing. I have heard of Guerlain many times but we don't have a proper store/counter over here in Mumbai. The ones here only have a limited collection. Anyhow, I got the shade 08 Ebony, which is the darkest they had.
The product has a beautiful packaging as you can see. It comes in a compact with a mirror inside. The powder has a pressed logo in the center. The bronzer is a deep brown with small golden shimmer. It has a sandalwood scent which is not over powering, thank God! Phew! I don't like sandalwood. Anyway, the powder is very pigmented. Little goes a long way. It does not come with a brush though. But what strikes me about this product is the way the logo glazes through. J'adore! =D
French makeup is always so très magnifique! And for being a high-end product it has to be expensive, right? I can't say it's worth it, it all depends on your need and willingness to pay but I can say Guerlain makeup is fit for Royalty. 5/5.
