KIRAN FAROOQ (Beauty blogger and makeup artist)

Top five makeup products that you always carry in your handbag.

Blotting sheets, lipstick, lip liner, mini Caudalie Face Elixir and kohl pencil.

New season makeup trend you can't wait to try.

Glitter! Sparkly eyes are making a big comeback this season and even though I’m a bit conservative with my makeup looks, I can’t wait to try this trend myself.

Best beauty advice you ever received.

To never over pluck my eyebrows. My mom always said that full brows give an illusion of youthfulness. So at the ripe old age of 28, I have to say I finally agree with her (thank god for Cara Delevingne!).

The beauty regime you always stick to.

For the past six years, I use an eye cream and a face serum before I go to bed each night. I have seen a huge difference in my skin for this one reason.

What does beauty mean to you?

To me, self-acceptance is true beauty.

Top five makeup products that you always carry in your handbag.

Carmex Cherry Lip Balm, YSL Touché Eclat, Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint in Budding Blossom, Lancôme Art Liner in Deep Brown and Shiseido Blotting Papers.

New season makeup trend you can't wait to try.

I have always loved the bronzed look and it suits my skin well. My go-to look is a gloriously tanned glow fresh off a day in the sun when I don't have to wear much makeup at all. Some Benefit Rose Tint for my cheeks and a glossy lip balm and I'm ready to go!

Best beauty advice you ever received.

That would have to be from my Mama - she has the most flawless skin and does not look her age at all. She has never used any crazy chemical peels or had cosmetic surgery. She has always told me to keep it natural, use the right products and just take care of your skin.

The beauty regime you always stick to.

I religiously remove my makeup at night before I go to bed. It's so important and no matter what time I get home, I always go through my entire night time skin care routine.

What does beauty mean to you?

Beauty to me is being comfortable in your own skin. Don't be afraid to have fun experimenting with new looks sometimes but go out with a bare face occasionally too. It can be very liberating!

Top five makeup products that you always carry in your handbag.

Benefit That Gal Primer, Nars ‘Barely There’ with a MAC Kabuki Brush for application, Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick in Muse, YSL Touche Eclat Highlighter pen and Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

New season makeup trend you can't wait to try.

Ditching the traditional black cat liner and opting for a brown or bright coloured flick! Can’t wait to try this hot F/W 16 trend.

Best beauty advice you ever received.

To wash my face with a cleanser and muslin cloth to remove product and then to close my pores with cold water.

The beauty regime you always stick to.

I swear by lip scrubs. They are so underrated. A good lip scrub can really help in keeping your lips soft, moisturized and helps in better application of your lippies!

What does beauty mean to you?

Beauty all boils down to presentation and confidence. A well-groomed woman will only exude happiness and positivity because she feels confident with herself and that in itself is a great attribute to have.

Top five makeup products that you always carry in your handbag.

I usually travel light and wear minimal makeup so I only pack Vaseline, a lip balm and my lipstick for the day in my handbag.

New season makeup trend you can't wait to try.

The Minimalistic Trend seen in shows like Stella McCartney. Should be a good change and easy for girls like me who are always on the go!

Best beauty advice you ever received.

Drinking lime juice several times a day to get an instant dose of energy and simultaneously detox.

The beauty regime you always stick to.

I never go to bed without cleansing my face with Bioderma's H20. I’ve been doing it for years now.

What does beauty mean to you?

As cliché as it may sound, beauty to me comes down to how you feel and that always ends up reflecting and radiating on the outside.

I have been a loyalist to Zuri Beauty Lounge for as long as I can remember.

RESHU MALHOTRA (Makeup artist and beauty blogger)

Top five makeup products that you always carry in your handbag.

Make Up Forever’s Smoky Lash Mascara and micro finish powder, MAC Sheertone Blush in Peaches, a variety of lip glosses and lipsticks from Prestige and Nars.

New season makeup trend you can't wait to try.

The new trends predominantly include vibrant glittery lips which stand out with neutral brows and skin. I can't wait to try it on myself and my models.

Best beauty advice you ever received.

At a very young age, I was told to always keep my skin hydrated and limit harsh exposure to the sun wearing sunscreen at all times, even indoors. If you want a tanned look, there are plenty of bronzers and creams that will give a healthy looking glow.

The beauty regime you always stick to.

I follow strict beauty regime every morning and evening which includes double cleansing, toning and moisturizing followed with sunscreen.

What does beauty mean to you?

Beauty is having integrity and confidence in all that you do. Being confident in your own skin and being your true self.
