I am from Penang, Malaysia, Southeast Asia, I am a makeup enthusiast AND I am a GUY!
Ethnicity; I am of East Indian descent.
I am a male Malaysian Indian beauty blogger.
FiercePaint is all about makeup/beauty.
So, please, please PLEASE read this blog if ONLY if you wanna know about drugstore makeup products and some basic tips to help you with makeup.
Otherwise, I beg of you, keep moving along.
I am doing this because, no. 1, I love makeup and no. 2, sharing is caring!
If you have read this far and yet to close the page then, here’s the rest of my story.
I’ve been a makeup enthusiast my whole life. At the age of 10 I knew female Indian actors wore false eyelashes (and even came up with my own method of making them out of paper)! At 13 I was introduced to mascara. At 16, I had already known of (in addition to mascara and false eyelashes) foundation, eye-shadow, eyeliner (both liquid and pencil), eyebrow pencils, blusher, lipstick, lipliner and lipgloss including where they go on the face and how to apply them!
I KNOW I KNOW, in 2015, makeup enthusiasts as young as 10 (perhaps even younger?), know all this, but I was a boy from a small town in mainland Penang, Malaysia, 16 years old in the year 2001. That was almost a decade and a half ago from 2015! YouTube didn’t even exist then!!!
From 2005 onward, I had freedom to explore makeup. My makeup training came in the form of stage makeup because I started dancing. From 2011 onward I started learning as much as I could about makeup with more practice both on myself and on others (watching YouTube, talking to makeup artists, reading, experimenting etc).
Here I am, in 2015, finally with my “makeup/beauty blog”. It feels amazing to call myself a beauty blogger!
I am especially excited to try my best to help deeper toned people (Indians to be specific) to work their way around drugstore products in Malaysia because, let’s be honest, drugstore makeup brands here carry very little complimentary colours, shades, and tones for deeper and warmer skin complexions.
I will be doing reviews on makeup products mostly focused on (but not limited to) drugstore products because I am a believer in finding high quality budget friendly items. There would also be first impression posts where I’d give you my initial thought on a product. If there has been a first impression post on a particular product then there would definitely be a full review. The review would come after a few months of using the product. I would also occasionally share tips or a beauty hacks, ONLY sharing those that have WORKED (for me at least). There would also product empties posts which would give you snippets of what I thought of these particular products including, prices, where to buy them, and if I’d repurchase them or not. Product empties posts would not always be makeup products but they would definitely be beauty related.
I will try to do proper swatches but they would mostly be hand swatches. Unless of course I have a makeup look to show you.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart if you have reached this portion of my page. No matter if you are men, women or any gender in between always remember that;
