Although I find myself on a constant quest to live a naturally beautiful life, I cannot deny that a little help from science, technology, research and MAKE-UP can go a long way. Make-up, lets talk make-up for a bit, I have the most profound respect for make-up and make-up artists, it really is an art, a skill that requires deep devotion to perfect.
I do not have too much experience with make up, but from the little I know, I can say with the utmost certainty that it has the potential to transform people and personalities. Which is why I am always trying to pick up any tiny piece of expert information that comes my way. To help me demystify this art of unleashing the hidden potential of make-up I decided to call on board the lovely Mumbai based make-up artist Vahbiz Irani.
Vahbiz was creatively inclined from a very young age and graduated on top of her class in Commercial Art. Few years later she trained professionally from FAT MU Academy and since then has worked on make-up for catwalk shows, advertising campaigns, editorial shoots and bridal make-up.
Vahbiz is going to be our make-up guide and mentor and tutor us through a series of posts. She will simplify the art of make-up by telling us about how to work on our skin, what products to use, what make up tricks to try and the latest trends, dos & don’ts.

email your queries to her at firstname.lastname@example.org or
call her on 09820741485.
With the introductions out of the way, lets get right into the thick of things. Today Vahbiz tells us about 10 drug store make-up products available in India that she thinks we all need to try. These 10 make-up products are likely to become your new superheroes, they deliver their promises without burning a hole in your pocket.
Vahbiz says “Ladies…you don’t need to go crazy spending soooooo much of your hard earned money on expensive makeup products. You will think of me fondly every day if you go out and buy these 10 amazing drugstore products that complete your makeup kit for daily use.”
