Mrunmayees makeup

Today I bring you a rifle through one of my best friend’s makeup bags. Presenting: Mrunmayee. We met in college at the grand age of 19 and we’ve always been bonded over our love of makeup (Mrunmayee was a L’Oreal Glam Shine Gloss gal back in the day). Now an Account Head, she’s my one friend that shares my passion for Sephora and the aisles of Beauty Center, regularly messaging me over pictures of her latest beauty purchase. She’s also a bold lip babe, a liner lover and likes a good dose of blush. Here’s how the contents of her daily makeup bag shapes up…

MAC Eye Shadow in All That Glitters and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

This week I thought I’d set myself up as the subject of an experiment that consisted of two parts. One – take a picture every day. Simple. Two – wear five different eye shadow looks throughout the week. No repeats. Now that second brief is a little tougher. Here are the results; take a peek into my eye shadow diary for the past week…

One of the best bits of delivering a daily dose of beauty stuff to you guys is the messages that I get after each post. Witty, intelligent and always hilarious. It’s nice to see makeup mavens flock together and share our passion for copious amounts of lipsticks, MUJI storage and the newest ‘OMG, HG, need-it’ products. Case in point, last week’s ’10 Signs You’re a Beauty Addict’ post which had me belly-laughing for a full five minutes while taking in all the messages. Some were just too good not to share, so here’s a selection of my favourite beauty addict anecdotes:
