About Makeup Discourse


Makeup Discourse is an offshoot of my affinity towards Makeup and affix towards maintaining my skin and hair.

Why Beauty Blogging?

I first started blogging (Beauty, Makeup, Books and Matters Etc, Elle18 dewlipz and Calamine lotion posts had the highest views) back in 2009-2010, with my interest in skincare.  I returned to blogging after I was convinced having to blog as a leisure activity.
My affection for makeup sparked with my two aunts who used makeup and for certain years of my childhood, I was brought up by them. And 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.

Makeup isn't about cloaking behind the lamious veils of Foundation rather covering the imperfections to accentuate the countenance.

And being a Critical Reader, I apply the same sanity to my Makeup trial runs.

Why not Book reviews?

I am certainly an eclecticist and I like exploring varied genres, writers, and literature. I do not particularly stick to a kind. I started with Chick lit, accumulating a collection, which holds less interest now. I  like to keep my radical interest and makeup on two different pages. I have a Literary Blog as well, where I publish my prose and poesies.

A True Non-conformist.
Metaphysics, Semiotics, Birds, Animals and Galaxies electrify me.
