I don’t know honestly. I just wanted to write. I wanted to write about anything. Then I started liking makeup. And then I started loving it. And I started doing a lot of DIYs for my skin which made me want to share everything I do online.
3. How old are you?
I’m 17, turning 18 in January 2017 hehe.
4. Have you always been this obsessed with makeup?
Nope. Actually I was one of the girls in my friends circle who never wore even a dot of makeup till grade 9 started. This obsession started when my aunt handed down her old makeup to me. Later, I bought myself a Maybelline lipstick, mascara and eyeliner which was my first makeup purchase with my eidi 2 or 3 years ago. After that I spent all my money on it. Every single penny I get is spent on makeup. Dedication YAS.

I buy most of my makeup online (Click here to see trusted pages and websites) or from stores like Scentsation DMC and Inglot. The rest is makeup my family brings me from abroad.

Because I want to. I love talking to the camera and I love it when girls send me pictures of their makeup asking for my opinion.

I use my iPhone 5 for all my photos and videos because I don’t own a personal DSLR.
