Hello everyone 🙂
I am SO ecstatic to be writing this post! I’ve been blogging for about 9 months now and have had tremendous support from so many people: family & friends, new friends who I’ve met through social media and other lovely beauty bloggers I’ve met through this wonderful journey. I honestly cannot thank you all enough for the remarkable encouragement and outpouring love you all have given to me! This month I finally reached 11k hits and for me, that’s HUGE! Marisaroy nominated me for Beauty Blogger of the Month and I’m so appreciative someone as wonderful as her nominated me for this award. Be sure to check out her blog and Youtube channel!
Being nominated is most definitely the cherry on top of all this happiness I’ve been experiencing off late! This was created by Cecilia from Cecilia’s Corner and all of the original rules and details about why she created this can be found here. Part of the tag consists of 7 questions which I’ve answered below. I hope you all learn a little more about me and the blogger behind The Panwar Palace.
1. Where does your makeup inspiration come from?
-My makeup inspiration doesn’t come from one place in particular. On some days you will see me with full-blown makeup and hair while on other days I’ll be lounging around in oversized sweats and a long sleeve shirt. Honestly, it all depends upon my mood. I choose comfort above anything else (exactly why I’m not a fashion blogger haha). I’m infatuated with Bollywood fashion and makeup glam but since I can’t wear those looks on a typical day, I like to browse the web– usually Pinterest and turn certain looks into my own.
2. What are 3 of your makeup Holy Grail products you cannot live without?
This is such a difficult question for a beauty blogger/makeup hoarder! After giving it much thought, I would have to say my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation for blemishes, Anatasia Brow Wiz Pencil because…well, brows are everything (obviously) and my Bobbi Brown Crème Blush Palette for a subtle highlight and rosy cheeks!
3.What is your makeup signature look which you have on most of the time?
If you all follow me on Instagram and friends with me on Facebook you would most probably know the answer to this! Haha Anytime I’m going out for the night with friends, I do red lips (MAC’s Ruby Woo) and false lashes (Ardell Whispies). Since I workout almost everyday around 4pm I don’t feel the need to wear makeup. I can’t stand sweat mixed in with all that gunk, not to mention it makes your pores BIGGER. Bye.
4. Let us know your favorite makeup brands?
I’m not partial to any particular brand- I never discriminate against makeup! I love brands such as Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, MAC, Tarte and Estee Lauder.
5.Your ultimate makeup pet peeve?
An overdone contour. I’m not a certified makeup artist or anything but blending is key to ANY makeup look. I can’t stand a muddy contour. Blend, blend & BLEND!
6.You’ve heard about all the hype on this makeup item, bought it, tried it and don’t understand what all the fuss is about…Name that product!
-Anatasia dipbrow pomade. I bought it two months ago and was so excited about using it since brows are in these days. I looked scary after trying it out so many times. The pencil works wonders for me but the pomade made me look hideous. Maybe I don’t know how to maneuver the product over my brows in a gentle, light manner but for now, I think I’ll be sticking to the Brow Wiz Pencil.
7. Concealer OR foundation ONLY for the rest of your life. Choose one and tell us the reason!
Foundation all the way! I only use a concealer for brightening up my under eye area. It’s almost impossible to match the EXACT color concealer to your foundation so spot treating only makes the blemish stand out more for me. I have some redness, blemishes, discoloration; you know the typical skin issues every girl has. Foundation evens out my skin and typically isn’t as thick as concealer.
Well that’s all for now. Hopefully you all learned a little more about me through this fun and cute tag. Stay posted for my first ever giveaway to celebrate my 11k hits on The Panwar Palace!
