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 four 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”
Shikha Sharma (Editor)
Shikha, who calls herself the biggest non risk taker, took the biggest risk of her career when she left her much settled career in the apparels industry. And today, she says it was really worth it. A nature lover and a fan of all things art, she likes to experience life – one day at a time! With an immense desire to see the world and read unlimited books, she takes inspiration from amazing people like her own bosses – Rati and Sanjeev, who wake up each day just to work hard on their dreams. Also, IMBB has got her hooked on to makeup and fitness, she confesses.
Saloni Shah (Social Media Manager)
Saloni was always attracted to makeup since she was 10. Chirpy, bubbly and energetic, she belongs to a completely different field with degrees in Management studies (BMS) and fashion designing. But, today she is where she is meant to be, i.e. in the field of makeup and beauty and, most importantly, IMBB which is one of her lifelines 🙂 Documents, office work, pins, papers, … this wasn’t something she was made for. She was made to be here and she is loving every bit of it. She has always believed in “Love what you do and do what you love” and that is what she wishes to do all her life with IMBB 🙂
