KS: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Rosh: Hi! I’m Roshini, an aspiring makeup artist who just graduated with my bachelors and masters degrees in Biomedical Engineering! I started makeup in the summer of 2019, focusing on neutral eyeshadow and building my way to using color and graphic eyeliners. My page is centered around my own experience as a South Asian makeup lover, showcasing fun hacks to make makeup easier and affordable makeup routines for college students to start their journey. I do makeup for my peers and value my perspective from the student environment!

KS: Where do you find inspiration for your makeup style?
Rosh: I am lucky to have a rich cultural heritage as a South Asian creator, and my Tamil roots have inspired many cultural looks and celebrity recreations from my favorite movies. I am always inspired by music - I have a myriad of looks drawn from BTS and Porter Robinson/Madeon album covers! But most of all, I gain inspiration from my beauty community! There are so many incredible artists who create the most beautiful looks, and I love to scout across my explore page to find what I want to recreate.

KS: What part of makeup and beauty makes you happy?
Rosh: It has to be the colors! Matching my eyeshadow to my outfit is my absolute favorite thing, and I always think it makes my whole look cohesive! My favorite products are eyeshadow and blush, and the interplay of colors, glitters and shine will instantly brighten my mood. The number of looks is infinite, and I love that you can use such different products every time but achieve something beautiful.

KS: How does your mood change after applying makeup?
Rosh: My mood always lifts so significantly after I put on makeup! There is something so satisfying about opening my makeup drawer and going to each section to pick a tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush…to make that perfect routine. It offers me 20 minutes of controlled choice in an unpredictable, fast-paced time in my life, and I appreciate that every day.

KS: What do you do to brighten your spirits on a tough day?
Rosh: Music is a very important part of my life, and my favorite genres are 2000s/2010s Tamil pop, progressive EDM, and Kpop! I always put on my Beats Studio headphones and take a second to play my favorite songs (especially Shelter by Porter Robinson!) to center my emotions and look forward. I also love cleaning out and reorganizing my makeup drawer to distract myself, and it always helps me bring out products I haven’t used in a bit to keep my page exciting!
We hope you enjoyed getting to know Rosh as much as we did, give her a follow and show her some love!
See you next time,
