So where do the truffles come from and how are they harvested? Well, truffle hunters use dogs or pigs to find the prized mushrooms buried underground. The truffles grow wild, usually under the base of an oak tree.

The dogs are prized almost as much as the truffles they seek…

After harvesting, the truffles goes straight to the factory where they are washed, sorted, canned or flown fresh to fancy restaurants.

Climate change has greatly affected the harvest of truffles in France. So rare and in demand the truffles are that they are already at the black market, even involving organized crime into the trade. But the biggest worry of the European truffle farmers is the invasion of the Chinese truffles, which may look like the European ones but smell and taste nothing like the real deal.

The Chinese truffles are cheaper and definitely inferior compared to the European ones.

It is essential that you know how to find the perfect shade for you; wrong shade and products may make your face look unclean. Matte is best for contouring and shimmery is best for highlighting. Contouring might be difficult at first but practice makes perfect. You just need the right brush and product for application as well as right tutorial videos to watch.

Remember that in contouring and highlighting you want to bring out your best features and hide your flaws, putting too much or too less may ruin the entire effect of your make up.

Normally, most of us would scamper away in fear, shriek our hearts out or go into genocide mode when we see a cockroach. These critters have earned such disdain and disgust from us humans, that who would actually give a dead cockroach a funeral right? Well apparently, the Anthropology department and a couple of students from Texas A&M University.

On December 3, Associate Professor Michael Alvard of the university's Anthropology department came across a dead cockroach by the stairwell. The dead roach was even named "Rosie Roach" and was given a little tombstone. Alvard snapped a pic and posted in his Facebook with the words,
