My December Enchantess Bag!! :)

 Hey Girls!

So yeah another beauty box bag i got for the Month of December. This time its by Enchantess.

If you are not aware about these beauty boxes/bags, they send across 3-4 customized samples of beauty, skin - Hair care that suit your needs once you subscribe every month.



 About Enchantess:

Enchantess was born out of an idea to disseminate the power of knowledge about beauty and healthy living being followed by our ancestors in India for ages.
We believe that everybody is beautiful but we need to recognize and enhance it to be able to enrich our lives by balancing essential components of our life. By balance, we cannot help but explain the three doshas of Kapha, Pitta, Vata under Ayurveda. When these three are in balance, a person is said to be beautiful from the inside and outside.
We live very different lives today from the lives of our ancestors. Our food has changed and now we have access to different palates and tastes from around the world. Similarly, our beauty practices and products have also changed from simple home-made ubtans to genetically enhanced anti-ageing serums. So, we need to understand what is good for us from a plethora of Indian and International brands available to us who bog us down with their extensive advertisements claiming to make one fairer, successful and confident.
We believe that everybody is different and have different needs and body types. We study each case individually and provide you with a beautiful personalized service of curating beauty products designed for your personality (for more info check out our Subscription program page). Hence, saving you lots of time and money on trying each and every product in the market to find out what works best for you!


My Experience with Enchantess:

I was very new to these beauty boxes thing until last month when i ordered Velvette Box. Click HERE & HERE to read my experiences with them. So when i got to know that there is Enchantess as well,  i could not restrict myself .They have 1-3-6-12 month subscriptions for the bag!.

The subscription for 1 month is Rs.399/- including shipping so i placed the order and it got confirmed on 18th Dec and i received my order on 20th Dec. That's super quick. The first thing that grabbed my eye balls is the cute pink potli bag. Loveeeeeeeeeddddd it!


Well its just the bag i love unfortunately :( Disappointed with the products i received!


These are the things i received:
  • Colorbar Kohl Intense Eyeliner (Full Size Price: Rs.399 - Sample received: 0.35gms)
  • Neutrogena Fine fairness Mask (Full Size Price: Rs.99 - Sample received:1 Mask)
  • L'Angel Hair Spa (Full Size Price: Rs.999 - Sample received: 3 Pouches)
  • Biotique Bio-White Lip Balm (Full Size Price: Rs.99 - Sample received: 4.1 gms)

A built-in mirror and dual-end applicator are included for flawless application.

Tips for Flawless Make up Application(Face)

Hi Girls!

This article is to just guide you to apply your make up in the right way. I am not saying THIS IS THE METHOD you should follow but i do my make up this way i always got compliments :) These are the methods i follow and i just want to share it with you all, i will be glad if this post helps at least a few of you especially those who are beginners in make up. I usually do not wear this much make up on daily basis. 

My everyday make up is simply Cleansing-->Moisturizing-->Applying Sunscreen-->Tinted Moisturizer-->Kajal-->Eye liner-->Lip Balm and i will be good to go.

Anyways lets get started.. :)

Cleanse/Exfoliate Skin:


It is so important to apply your make up on a clean face. Make sure your skin is cleansed and exfoliated. Cleansing removes the dirt from the skin and Exfoliation removes the dead/flaky skin and refreshes the skin surface and provides a smooth base to work with.

Moisturizer:


I cant emphasize how important it is to moisturize your skin before applying Make up. It hydrates the skin through out the day and help your make up look good. Imagine your skin having all dry patches after you apply the make up. It just ruins the over all look and also makes your skin stretchy and further dry.

Its always important to choose the right moisturizer for your skin type. You may use a cream based.nourishing moisturizer if you have Dry skin and  a water based/light moisturizer for Oily skin.

Sunscreen:


Never ever skip your sun screen if its Day time. Or you can simply choose a moisturizer/foundation which has SPF(Min of 20-30) with UVV/UVA protection factors. Facial skin is very sensitive and could be damaged easily due to the harsh UV Rays.

Primer:

Use a Face primer to create a smooth base for your foundation,extend the staying power of the Make up, even out the skin tone and reduce the appearance of the pores. They are primers available to suit different skin needs. For Oily skin, it regulates the oil secretion and keeps the skin shine free and Matte for a long time. For Dry skin there are primers that keeps the skin further hydrated. There are different primers to even out the skin tone or minimize the appearance of the pores.


Apply the primer all over the face and neck using fingers/brush. It would take some 5-8 mins for the primer to sink into the skin and do its job(minimize pores/matte-fy/even-out skin) and then proceed with foundation application
