Started in 2009 as just a makeup blog, makeupandbeauty.com (a.k.a. IMBB) has today grown into an international makeup, beauty and fashion community. Running three powerful blogs successfully- in India, Dubai and Philippines- makeupandbeauty.com is already the biggest women’s blog on the internet with more than 700 writers writing on it. The founders- Rati and Sanjeev (read more about them HERE)- and other team members make it a very stylish, ambitious and beauty crazy team. Here are our team members:
Rati Tehri Singh (Owner and Cofounder)
Cofounder of www.totalgadha.com, Rati started www.makeupandbeauty.com to share her love for cosmetics with her other friends. Soon, many other writers found their heart in IMBB and joined Rati. Today she covers many fashion and beauty brands and works with them. Her recent addition to the blog, her fashion lookbook, is quite a hit among IMBB readers.

Managing all his three companies successfully, Sanjeev wants to make www.makeupandbeauty.com the centre of fashion and beauty scene in India.
Jomol James (Chief Editor)
Despite a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Microbiology, Genetics, and Chemistry, Jomol was not destined to work with microbes. She joined IMBB as a blogger and soon become famous amongst the readers for her wit, humour and detailed articles. Joining www.makeupandbeauty.com was a natural step. Basically from the backwaters of Kerala, but Hyderabad is where her home and heart is. And she loves IMBB. In her own words “Right now, I am at the best phase in my life both professionally and personally because I have a very naughty son and a happy family to look after and I am passionate about my work at IMBB. My job gives me immense satisfaction and I get up every morning without any Monday or Sunday Blues and neither do I get that very rampant “Thank God It’s Friday” feelings on Friday!” IMBB is like a second home to me where I interact with so many lovely people on a daily basis and I do not even miss a single day on IMBB. I have gained so much here on IMBB in terms of getting more enlightened about makeup, making friends, and oh yes, being happy surrounded by so many lovely souls. My dream is to take IMBB to the highest possible height and to continue working here because this is where my passion and heart is”
Neha Vernal (Editor)
Neha is a workaholic when it comes to IMBB. A hands-on homemaker and a mum to a toddler girl, she couldnt have asked for a better job than IMBB. She has been passionately writing on IMBB for the past three years and this is where she combines her love for makeup and writing. She couldn’t have asked for better employers than those she found in Sanjeev and Rati and a better colleague and friend than Jomol.. some people say, the God of jobs has been merciful 😛 Never did she know, IMBB, the biggest and the best destination for makeup lovers would be a major part of her life so soon.
Nandini Ramesh (Editor)
If you had asked Nandini around a year back if she is interested in blogging and that sort of a thing. She would probably give you a weird look and assertively say “NO”. Well, zooming into the present, she is working full-time for one of the biggest Beauty blogs our Country can boast of – ‘IMBB’ and yes, she loving every minute of it!
An engineer by education and a Business Analyst by profession, she was juggling with numbers and statistical analysis at an MNC, when, one day, she just happened to accidentally bump into IMBB and was hooked for life! From that day on, you could always find her reading the IMBB posts at office when all her other colleagues were busy reading and discussing white papers on Market Research and Analytics. Oh God! What would become of this poor girl! Well, she was destined to join her beloved IMBB!
Now, married and settled, she feels blessed to have a family that’s so loving, a job that is so exciting and employers who are so wonderful!
