Tell Your Own Story

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

Makeup has been a part of my routine for as long as I can remember. When I was a little girl, I used to beg my mother for lipstick on Sunday mornings. The first piece of makeup I ever bought was a cream eyeshadow trio that I could use on my eyes and lips. Then I graduated to MAC products, full liquid foundation and black pencil eye liner in high school, and went smoky eye crazy in university. Since then its just become a part of me, but one that I tailor to my every mood.

I think a lot of women have a routine of their own and it doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing so long as they feel good about what their doing. I love that.

I think it’s epic-ly important to maintain your sense of self when endowing your looks with makeup. Just a hot tip though ladies, make sure you never stray from your sense of self. The greatest shame I see on the streets of the world, are these girls who are done up in all sorts of colours, but who look utterly miserable. What’s the point?

Do your own thing ladies, feel it and feel good. Don’t worry on what someone else’s standards are. Because if they’re making a comment to you, it’s their own story their telling, not yours.


So tell your own story. Be yourself in day light and moonlight as yourself too. Be wonderful, be beautiful and be naturally you.

With nothing but love,
