About me and my blog

Blogging since 1999, Gem often blogs about beauty and makeup and occasionally injects features about her love for coffee, food, lifestyle and basically anything under the sun. Oh, she used to post makeup tutorials on YouTube, too.

Gem is an investment banker by day and a beauty blogger after office hours.

What inspired me to become a beauty blogger

The fact that makeup can enhance our looks and make ourselves feel even more confident are the things that inspired me to become a beauty blogger. These have triggered a feeling that it’s nice to share what you know about beauty and help them be the better version of themselves.
