Saniksha Adnani: My First Love
I first fell in love in 1999 with make up! It was when I discovered how a little blush and blending could not only boost my face but my confidence. When I was studying in school I always treated my blush like a lucky charm that made me feel beautiful and great about myself.
It was then I realized if this is what happens with a little bit of blush imagine what would happen if I invested more time, which I found out seven years later when I tied the knot.
As most bridezillas do, I spent a chunk of savings at Mac Cosmetics. I couldn’t stop myself at the myriad of glittery eye shadow palettes, I also wanted some striking pigments and I still have my first palette (my absolute favourite) sitting in my second drawer of the dresser as a reminder!
Thanks to Mac I also had the opportunity to learn techniques from world class artists including Vimmi Joshi, make up artist to Bollywood celebrities and Bahraini heavyweight Bassra.
What I didn’t realize is how quickly I mirrored their genius work. Soon friends and family were in awe of my work and skill but I never had the confidence until I saw MakeupbyTiffanyD’s YouTube channel. She was inspiring and watching the channel made me realize that all you need is a spinkle of passion and the ability to blend, which was when I decided to become a full-fledged make up artist in 2010.
Today I bring to you Blend – a work in progress for sure – but definitely an outlet for anyone passionate about brushes and blushes as much as I am!
