1.) Have you been naughty or nice this year with your skincare routine?

Surprisingly I’ve been nice when I’m usually naughty! 😛

2.) What’s the go-to beauty, makeup or skincare product you would gift to your family and friends?

As much as I love makeup, I hesitate to give them as gifts because personal preference and suitability to skin type/tone is very subjective. No friends or family members of mine, (at least to the extend I know of) has a makeup wishlist. The one person I have given makeup gifts to is mom and its usually lipsticks and eyeliners; two things she uses most often in her makeup routine.

3.) Do you mind gifting high-end products or rather drug store products to others?

I think I’d prefer high-end but I’ve done both. The great thing about drugstore makeup is you can double the amount of products you can get for the same amount of money.

4.)What are the beauty products you’re hoping to get to see under your Christmas tree this year?

I am Hindu so I don’t exactly celebrate Christmas. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t join in the merry and joyous occasions. My friends and I have our own Christmas celebrations. Since I live in a tropical country my best friends and I typically gather for a nice Christmas (or Christmas eve) dinner. I do receive gifts from an aunt of mine and her two daughters (my cousins) who are Christians but no beauty products so far. So, to answer the question, I am  not expecting any kind of beauty products under the Christmas tree.

5.)What is the beauty product that you’re dreading to receive for Christmas this year?

Read #4. 🙂 🙂 🙂 If I had to answer the hypothetical question it would be, any kind of skincare product.

6.)Are you are beauty blogger participating in Blogmas this year? If so what is the post you’re most proud of so far?

I am not participating in Blogmas but it is so cool. Looking at how other blogger friends of mine have “decorated” their blog for Blogmas; it seems like so much fun.

7.) Do you remember the first beauty product you received as a Christmas present? What was it and did you enjoy it?

Read #4.

8.)What mini size product would you recommend as a great stocking stuffer?

Sample size mascaras from Sephora! There’s something about tiny mascara tubes that I have such an affinity towards and I’m sure people would enjoy them!

9.)Would you rather you friends and family ask you gifts you wanted to receive or have them surprise you?

I generally don’t like surprises, however, I think the spirit of a Christmas gift is in its mystery. In this case I happen to like the surprise. I have never been disappointed with a Christmas gift because to me it’s all about the mystery and ripping the wrapping paper to discover a little trinket inside!

10.) What is your favourite way to show Christmas spirit through your look or outfit?

Neither because there isn’t really a beauty tradition for me during the holidays. Even during Deepavali.

 

PS: You must be wondering what’s up with the picture. Well, that happens to be Christmas eve 2014 at my best friend’s place (hi Brendan and Jon!!!). It was  nice quiet Christmas eve dinner of beet and persimmon salad, some penne, and roasted chicken thighs on a bed of potatoes, carrots, garlic and olive oil! I made dessert that day; apple crumble with vanilla ice cream!

I tag everyone reading this! Do drop me a comment to let me know if you did!

Here are the questions so you can copy and paste.
