Like the little black dress, a smokey eye is timelessly sexy, and yet, like pretty much everyone else, I never got around to doing it thanks to the amount of work it looked like. As part of my recent bridal experience with Estee Lauder, among all the other incredible elements and pampering, I also picked one trend to learn from Rani, the inhouse makeup artist. Could have been my upcoming wedding or simply the dozen other weddings I have to attend this month, but I instinctly picked the Smokey Eye.
Rewind to a couple of years ago, in my initial years of my blogging, when I perpetually wore sunglasses to hide the fact that I wasn’t wearing any makeup! Not quite sure whether my transition into being an absolute beauty junkie occurred with age or when the freebies started coming in but I have to admit, as of today, I’m officially a makeup addict. I wouldn’t say I’m an expert yet but almost 90% of the makeup you see on my blog has been done by me and I make it a point to innovate with each look to get better everyday. I’ve been learning one step at a time and I feel like that’s the only you can go with it!
Current life situation. Daughter, fiance, entrepreneur and blogger. All actively consuming roles – in no order of preference whatsoever. My life in the last 8 months has been a rollercoaster – exciting, exhilarating and making me slightly motion-sick. But one thing that this phase of life has taught me – is to adapt. To be fluid in nature, to embrace new life-altering changes with grace and most importantly – to smile through it.
