Minimal Makeup // Diwali

So today was one of the few days in a year, when I had applied makeup. I love keeping a minimal and clear makeup. I'm not at all a makeup addict or a makeup lover. But since I'm a girl, my mom had insisted me to buy few of the makeup products when I was in my 10th grade. And since then I felt that a bit of makeup isn't going to harm me or my tom-boyish image. Thus, I started buying them.
Since I was a dancer in my school days, a bit of makeup was must during dance competitions, annual gatherings or celebrating the founder's birthdays. I used to apply my mom's lipstick and use the same as blush, and for the eyes? Well, I used to borrow stuff from my neighbor's. My neighbor used to help my mom in makeup and making me ready before every dance.

Now, I provide with makeup supplies to that same neighbor's little daughter's dances! What a sweet thanks!
