About Makeup Discourse


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

Why Beauty Blogging?

I first started blogging back in 2009-2010, with my interest in skincare. I deleted my blog in a spur of the moment because I wanted to solely concentrate on studies. I returned to blogging after I was convinced that blogging is my escapism. Even with my profound interest in makeup, I never wore makeup to college respecting the code of conduct (except kohl & lip balm.)

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

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