4. Shikha Pathak Pandey – The Girl from Calcutta
Next on our list is Shikha. She did her post-graduate diploma in mass communication. She shared with us that since the beginning, she was fond of reading makeup product reviews. And sometimes, she found the reviews to be false and misleading. It was then when she got an inspiration to start her own blog, which would be an honest platform for readers searching for genuine beauty product reviews.
She shares her skin-care routine. Let's read it in her own words –
“Our skin is extremely sensitive and goes through a lot every day. Pollution, dirt, and impurities start taking a toll, turning the skin dull and dry. A cleanser effectively cleanses your skin and removes the slightest of impurities without clogging open pores. A toner tightens these pores, whereas a moisturiser effectively seals in the moisture in your skin, thus hydrating it. A daily CTM routine will soon give you a flawlessly radiant skin in no time. It’s tried and tested by me!”
Pro Tip: Follow the routine twice a day, every day of the week.
She calls herself a shopaholic and tries to get her hands on all the latest beauty products. She says that beauty is natural, but a bit of mascara and a swipe of lipstick will never harm. Yes, we all agree to this, don’t you?

She shares that her source of beauty information was from popular magazines such as Vogue, Elle, and Cosmopolitan. It was during those times when YouTube was not accessible. And we can see that it was her passion which never let her turn back.
Did you know that her earliest makeup memory was trying the red lipstick that her dad had got for her mom? That’s interesting.
Let’s read in her own words what she thinks about beauty –
“I truly believe that makeup is about enhancing one’s features rather than masking them. Because of the obsession with wanting to look fair, a mistake that many people make is wearing a lighter shade of foundation or face powder. That is committing makeup hara-kiri! Love yourself, love your skin tone, and wear makeup that does not look as if you are wearing a white mask.”
The beauty enthusiast loves to write about lipstick brands and skin-care products. She aims at penning down posts which are helpful to her readers. Along with makeup product reviews, she also writes on fashion titbits, travel tutorials, wellness and lifestyle content.
