I am a unique make up lover, I love Make up but I rarely use it as a whole, as in I rarely use it as a true blue make up enthusiast, well let me explain, what I regularly use and cannot live without is Kajal , some days I skip the eye liner but kajal has to be there!!
I can’t actually recollect a time when I have gone out anywhere without applying kajal in my eyes, sometimes even lounging around at home I will be having kajal in my eyes. This is also because as keralaites we love putting homemade kajal on our babies , it is not only the eyes, all Keralaite babies will be seen with kajal in their eyes, beautiful eyebrows drawn with kajal, a big black bindi and a nazar ka kala tika, and this is irrespective of the baby being a boy or girl, so I was also brought up like this, and I remember going to school like this till the time I was in 2nd or 3rd standard ( I studied in a school in Delhi where everyone around was Keralaite, including Teachers too) and my teachers loved the way my Mother made up my eyes and eyebrows with Kajal,... well I digress…
I was actually writing about my love for make up, though the maximum make up I usually put on is kajal , lipstick and sometimes a small bindi and if it is a party or something I can even go for a blush on, but I love make up and I keep subscribing to sites like ‘Fab bag’ wherein we can subscribe for makeup bag as per our skin and hair type and they send a mix of skin care products and make up products as per our details. I basically love lipsticks also but won’t go all out putting it on my lips because I do not like drawing too much attention towards my lips … well that is a different story all together.
I can incessantly watch make up videos on Instagram, I just love the way make up transforms a person, the way contouring is done, foundations are put and how the eye makeup lights up a person and changes her entire look. I love reading about make up reviews as well.
I admire women who do make up flawlessly and carries it off elegantly, their knowledge and expertise in make up make them outstanding and some of their work is simply out of the world. I started a makeup and skin care blog in between but dropped the idea because I thought if I a m going to review products I would be only reviewing kajal, eyeliners and lipsticks or some skin care products but there are a number of other products in makeup such as eye shadows, foundations, blush ons, cc creams, primers and so on and I would not be doing justice to these products if I restrict myself to only kajals and lipstick reviews.
But now after seeing so many Instagram videos and you tube videos on make up, I am really tempted to do the reviews even if these are limited to the products and make up that I am using… so you might get to see one or two product reviews in my futures posts….
What is your make up story? do you love make up like me but do not put it on so much or you are some one who loves make up and is a pro at it? or, some one who do not like it and do not use it also…come on…share all those make up secrets… I am longing to hear it….
