Before I begin, I touched 200 followers on Bloglovin’ today and I am so thrilled! Thank you everyone who have shown so much interest and appreciation for the blog, it makes me really happy! For those of you who haven’t I love you as much! 🙂
My parents are visiting us and that gave me the perfect opportunity to post about my mum and her makeup bag! She isn’t as crazy about makeup or beauty as I am and she is amused where I get this obsession from.. lets not try and explain! 😛 Most of her stuff has been my doing over the years, but she has come to really like them now and they suit her skin very well. I wish she had written the post herself, but for the busy woman she is (even on vacation!!) I asked her a few questions (celebrity style) and she answered them while making the best Pani Puri ever!
Me: Ma, are you ready for this?
Ma: Of course not!
Me: Moving on.. ( 😛 ) Ma, are you following your skin care routine I asked you to?
Ma: *laughs*, yes about thrice in a week! not everyday. Me: *shocked expression* | Ma: But I do use the murky face wash we got (Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip). It doesn’t smell nice, but leaves my skin feeling good. I use it both times a day if I remember to.. I have given it a spot in the front row so that I see it everytime I go to the bathroom.
Me: Whats your everyday routine like.. which you actually follow!
Ma: Morning after cleansing, I use the Estee Lauder serum, feels quite velvetty on the skin.. I used to use an orange one from The Body Shop which I really liked. I think i’ll buy that again once this gets over. I feel guilty spending so much for the same thing.(Mums!)
After that I use a moisturiser with spf, one from Clinique. When I do have some time in the night, I use the night cream which goes with it. What I always do is take care of my hands.. and I like this hand cream from The Body Shop. I like the smell a lot.
Me: What about the Clarins oil?
Me: How do you do your makeup everyday?
Ma: I don’t do much of makeup, but just before leaving for work, I use the Vichy moisturiser, the pore cream, some sunblock, and conceal with a little bit of MAC concealer. For my eyes I use a brown pencil you got me. If time permits I touch up my brows with brun. Lipsticks are a must for me, I feel I look dead without it! Although I rarely match it with my outfit, I wear brown for work.
Me: Your favorite lipstick?
Me: Ok tell me, if I took away everything from your makeup bag, which 1.., ok 3 things you’ll keep!?
Ma: Sunblock, one lipstick and the foundation stick! I will press you to let me have my eye pencil too!
Me: Ma when you dress up for a party, what “extra” do you do?
Me: Ummm, a non-brown lipstick, may be a bit of blush and foundation for coverage if the event is at night.
Me: Which foundation do you use?
Ma: Studio Tech (MAC). Its finished I need to get another one. Me: yeah I really like that one too.
Me: Do you read my blog? 😛
Ma: Oh yes! everytime, every post, every comment. (Me: aawww) I am happy the way its shaping, I told all my students about it! (My Mum is a professor at a University)
I hope you liked this little post!
