Here are a list of items I feel are necessary for every South Asian woman (or those women close in color and tone):
Eyeshadows: MAC-All that Glitters, Woodwinked, Sketch, Embark, Carbon and Ricepaper (Arena if you’re darker)
Blushes: MAC- Melba, Pinch o’ Peach, Mocha and Desert Rose
Lipsticks: MAC- “O”, Cherish, Dubonnet, Twig and See Sheer
You can create great looks with these colors and it’s a good base to start your collection from. Don’t be afraid to experiment by mixing colors together, remember makeup is meant to be fun, it is art after all!
