Some Insight into Beauty Matters!


   
Hiya,

Yesterday, my khalas (maternal-aunts) were over at my place and there was a discussion on makeup, naturally. My khalas are into beauty related issues too, quite keenly as a matter of fact, but there’s always a clash on the budget. They openly tell me that I’m a spendthrift regarding makeup items and after hearing about my latest splurges, they advised on the productivity of spending money on clothes, rather than cosmetics. I believe many of the beauty bloggers face similar issues, and then the guilt gushes overspill our minds. Don’t they?



I wanted to share my feelings and thoughts on this matter. Also, there should be some other beauty topics too, apart from reviews, (wink). Once, I received a huge counseling from my phuppo (paternal-aunts) as well. The problem lies in our nature I believe. We girls never get so much excited over other necessities and wants as much, as on makeup products. Truly speaking from my heart, I simply adore makeup and I know you do too.
 
Some Responses to the Guilt Gushes

As for the guilt part or as properly put by our elders, “fazool cheezain” (waste, rubbish); if humbly said, we cannot ignore makeup as long as we are girls, and we are girls, you can’t change our nature. That is inbred, we inherit it and we are born this way. There are various kinds of girls, but they all do have some sort of obsession. It might be clothes, shoes, books, jewelry, or like us, makeup. Why makeup is called useless when that is the thing which improves our looks? What’s the point in wearing new clothes every day when your skin and hair isn’t looking as attractive too?

I really don’t want to feel as if I am trying to justify my own craze. I am merely endeavoring to make all understand my love for makeup. It is there, useless or useful, expensive or not! Plus, every girl, or at least I do try to remain in the budget, so as not to overstress my elders because of it. Thank goodness, my mom shares my opinions and supports me, even my brothers have by now, given in to my passion and have bunged rebuking me. Moreover, I believe I have achieved a lot through it.

The Preliminary Phases

I still remember when I started blogging; my mom didn’t know anything about blogging, especially beauty blogging and expressed her surprise along with a bit of remorse. She asked me to write on something different, like everyday life issues, etc. She actually had no concept of the beauty marketing, blogging and the rage of females over it, and for that matter even I didn’t. My first inspiration emerged from Sarah Hassan’s Blog and when I showed it my mom, she was spell-bound. Still, some apprehensions were present.

The Current Outcomes

Now, it has all changed, she is the strongest supporter of this craze of mine and I have gained confidence, writing skills, photography talents, inter-action with like-minded people, and a lot more. I have also learnt self-grooming, which is extremely important and I feel I have grown wiser (chuckle). My infatuation has taken me towards earning professionally and that is an asset to be proud of. It all depends on the choices we make in our lives. Look at Bobbi Brown, Coco Chanel, Lisa Eldridge, Huda Beauty, just to name a few. To sum it all up my only words are, “Makeup, I love you.”

  2. I loved your post. So true. Same goes with my family & relatives. My brother was literally shocked when I told him that I packed 52 shades of lipstick for our 2 months vacys. And I told him what if I feel like wearing any of these? A tone darker, lighter, different undertones & bla.
    No body understands our love for makeup so lets just not pay attention & BUY MORE MAKEUP! Since it makes me really happy

    1. That part about packing 52 lipsticks and so on is really humorous. Boys particularly won't understand our infatuation with makeup but gotta stay strong. Thanks for leaving such a beautiful comment.

  5. I think beauty blogging is a difficult concept to grasp for a lot of people! I still have a hard time sometimes explaining to people what it is I do exactly and why I do it.

  10. Loved this post! Yes, we should talk about such issues rather than just showing the world what we got and how it worked for us. I am not a fan of makeup. In fact, I never wore makeup before my wedding. Still, I try to avoid it. I feel great in my natural color and everything, but as I am aging and the way world is advancing (don't mean internet and snapchat, I mean contouring and baking :P ) its the need of the day. I believe if you love it, you should do it and its even great that you know your boundaries, you stay in your budget and there is nothing like it.
