  • Nova

    Hi there I discovered your blog recently and fell in love completely I was wondering how you made you banner I’m dying to know because I want to start a blog and also I was wondering if when you take photos of make up on you actual face you could do one with flash and one without :)

    • Kaushal

      Hi Nova, thanks do much for your message. I made my banner just with a random font on a program called Paint.NET which is like a free photoshop. I can try & do with & without flash photography of my face (sometimes England isn’t the best for that) but I will definitely try my best x

  • Harpreet

    I am in love with your blog – more so cos you’re indian :)

  • Rami Hay

    I am trying to get into YouTube! Currently I am trying to Vlog about important world issues and recently started vlogging my life as a law student from Canada living in Australia. Any tips? It seems that a lot of people don’t really care about “world issues” nowadays and want to watch a lot of beauty (I love watching you and other “Beauty Gurus,” but I wanted to come to YouTube to create an outreach for those less-fortunate, so to speak)! I don’t know how to actually GET people to want to watch :( I tried making a beauty video because I love makeup but I really didn’t enjoy making it…

    • Rami Hay

      PS. I love you videos :) You’re such a cutie and are doing amazing as a fellow Indian in showing both sides of your upbringing.

  • Coralie

    Are you going to participate to L’Or√©als “Brush” contest?

  • neela

    Hi! I love your videos! Thanks for all the tips :)
    If possible can you give advise or makeup tips (colours) for darker skin (than yours) pls? I’m also Indian but with a darker skin and sometimes I am bit doubtful that the makeup will not be suitable?
    Thanks :) from Paris

  • Aman K Deol

  • sukhyb_mua_sashandbronze

    Hi Kaushal, I’m new to your page/blog & already im such a fan! You Go girl – you’re doing an amazing job :) i wanted to see if you would do/ have done any tutorials on colour correcting. Being a medium (to sometimes dark depending on my tan) indian skin ie ranging on an nc42 to nc43.5 or nc44 at times.. I often struggle with greyness/darkness around my mouth. Regardless of hair removal etc. I use the orangey colour corrector under my foundation to try and get rid of it but although the rest of my skin is flawless in terms of matching the foundation to my tone, the area around my mouth is never fully gone & cam look ashy? Is this because of the wrong foundation colour or… What would you suggest please? Thanks in advance if you reply :)

  • Hina

    Hey Kaushal! I love your videos & follow you regularly. Have you done any Indian Bridal Make-up tutorials? If not, I would love to see it. Another good one to see would be the Indian celebrity Tutorial. I know you’ve done Deepika, Sonam and Aishwarya, if you could do maybe Rani Mukherji or even one of Alia Bhatt’s from the song, “Saturday”. Keep up the great work. God Bless! xoxo! :)

  • Marcia Groeneveld

    Hello watched some of your videos, seem very good! I have thin greasy hair. If I go one day without washing my hair, WATCH OUT!One thing I’ve been doing lately, is putting baking soda in my shampoo! Not just a teaspoon but about four tablespoons in two cups! It thickens it right up, so less is best, nthen keep adding. Another thing I keep in mind is clear shampoo – good for thin hair, creamy – good for thick hair

  • Susan Philip

    hello kaushal,
    I love your vedio. specially indian shopping.

  • Sunny

    Hi Kaushal
    I like using BB creams on my skin when going for a look that needs little makeup..is there a particular brand/ product that you could recommend? At the moment I am using The Body Shop’s BB cream in the shade 02 which I find it working well!

  • Maria Petrova

    Hello, Kaushal,
    I found your youtube videos a few days ago. I was just searching for some tutorial of Indian make-up, ’cause in a week I’m going to attend an Indian wedding (my husband’s mother is Indian and her nephew is getting married). So I watched your video on wedding guest makeup and it was very exciting. In fact, then I started to watch all your videos and I really enjoyed them! I’m going to try several makeup techniques from your videos.
    How did you start all this?
    Do (or will) you have any tutorials on fashion, style, creating a perfect wardrobe?
    Wish you all the best! You are just fabulous!

    From the date of your oldest video on your channel, it appears you started YouTube December 2013 (about 1.5 years ago) and you’ve built QUITE THE FOLLOWING in such a short period. People say it’s pretty unlikely to get hundreds of thousands of subscribers in a matter of a year or two. Anything you did in particular? Or did you have a strong following already on your blog and social media before starting YouTube.
