The women we are and all that we know; we owe it to the women in our lives. Be it our moms, grandmas or sisters; these ladies have been our pillars of strength and go-to guides for everything. So ladies, as the world gears up to celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8th of this month, we decided to celebrate all the lovely women in our lives who keep us looking (and feeling) beautiful! 

Read on as Team BB reminisces the beauty lessons they’ve got from the special women in their lives...

Ever girl’s first lipstick experience is her mom putting lipstick on her lips probably for a fancy dress or a dance competition. I’ve grown up watching my mom putting on her favourite Lakmé lipstick in the same manner for years and that’s where I’ve picked the skill from.

My grandma’s the one to make sure my cheeks are always full and round even today. She fills me with cookies and sweets and pulls my cheeks every time I meet her. Safe to say she endorses chubby and fuller cheeks and taught me the same.

I have an aunt I look up to for makeup tips and life advices in general, because of how cool she is. She sports her greys with pride, believes in embracing beauty on her own terms, keeps herself fit and carries everything with flair even in her 40s. I definitely learnt to age gracefully and embrace my true self.

My sister is the person I go to for all the makeup know-hows. She helps me sport the perfect winged liner, she got me my first eyeshadow palette and showed me how to work up mascara for fuller lashes. A sister, friend and makeup guru all in one!

Urvi Dalal - Senior Features Writer

My fashion fantic BFF gives me all the dope from the beauty world and keeps me informed about all the hottest runway trends, what’s in and what’s not. She’s encourages me to try new makeup, tells me about new launches and tags me in beauty memes. That’s what BFFs are for!
