Makeup is an undeniable component of our appearance. Be it a wearing a natural lip colour and a hint of kohl in the waterline or going gaga with the eye shadow palette and applying this and that technique to our face, we all need some sort of cosmetics to highlight our natural beauty. Makeup is not always about sculpting your face completely, but more about letting your image shine through.
But when it comes to buying such products, there is plethora of option in our city. There are the fake ones with popular brand labels, cheap ones with terrible ingredients, good ones with expired date and so on.
