-What do you think of Makeup?
If used correctly, it greatly helps to further accentuate your best features….I also agree with Rati that its good as long as you are not dependent on it…You should be able to carry off a no makeup face and a fully decked up look with the same amount of confidence

1. Which cosmetic brands do you want to see in India?
Bobbi Brown, Nars, Urban Decay…have read such gr8 reviews abt these online

2. What are the most common excuses you’ve heard Indian women give for not wearing makeup?
“I look good without makeup” “Too much of makeup is not good for the skin“ and at times I feel some a just lazy to not put makeup

3. Name the makeup products that you would continue to use even after hitting 50.
Lipsticks and eyeliner

4. Has any beauty advice ever gone wrong for you?

Thankfully, nothing yet. Though I am very careful about using any such advice as what may work for one person may not work for another…

5. When was the last time you committed a beauty blunder?

Cant really think of any such major blunder, but i’ve slept off without cleansing my face some times

6. If you could change one thing in an average Indian bride’s marriage look, what would it be?

I guess my ans is the same as most of the others…the right shade of foundation…as the name says it all…its the foundation of the makeup and if tht is wrong, ur whole look goes for a toss!!

7. Name one makeup product that you will never use.

My ans is probably the same again – Face glitter.

8. What beauty treatments do you regularly undergo at your parlour?
Waxing and threading

9. Have you ever faced criticism from friends or family for your makeup obsession?
I dont really think I am obsessed with makeup, I use quite less makeup on a daily basis….I usually really dress up only for occassions so never really got any such comments / criticism from family or friends

10. What is the one makeup look that you just cannot pull off?

Though I havnt tried these looks…I am very sceptical about black smokey eyes.
