About Makeup Discourse


Makeup Discourse is an offshoot of my affinity towards makeup. I use this space to reflect, reject, re-adapt either a preference or disinclination towards anything related to makeup, a beauty-makeup journal of sorts. Regardless, consider this space personal.

Why Beauty Blogging?

I first started blogging in 2009, with my interest in skincare. I deleted the blog in a spur of the moment because I wanted to concentrate on academics. I returned to blogging, after I was convinced that blogging is my escapism.

My interest in makeup sparked with my two aunts, who had a certain kind of affection for lipsticks. And I, for that matter, had a favourable impression of makeup, as I was raised by them. My interest deepened with Beautification with Ruby & Millie, a makeup-based show that I would tune into every week on Discovery's Travel and Living.
The very best statement I could initiate is I fancy makeup. I have been peculiar about skincare, restricting it to cleansing, toning and moisturising. I have been a convert since the day I discovered the truth about makeup. I love the idea of accentuating one's features using makeup.

And being a critical reader, I apply the same sanity to my makeup-trial runs.

Who am I?
A true non-conformist.
Metaphysics, semiotics, birds, animals and galaxies electrify me.
