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.
