Who are we?
Welcome! We’re Vikki & Mala (otherwise known as V & M) and VeryMakeupMad was born out of our mutual love of makeup, skincare & all things beauty. Our paths crossed back in 2008, and thanks to our combined 15+ years of experience in the beauty industry – V as a Beauty Editor and M as a makeup-artist and model – we instantly hit it off over a latte. Our curly hair was a great conversation starter – curly girls should always stick together! Only recently though, as we both hit our 40’s, did we decide to put our wealth of beauty knowledge and expertise to good use and set up this blog. A blog for real women, by real women.
Our philosophy is simple – we’re all about helping you to be naturally beautiful, using great skincare to create the perfect canvas, and the very best makeup to enhance what you already have. We believe that all women can be empowered to feel and look their best with the help of some great products and we’re happy to do the groundwork for you – we’ll tell you what to buy, (& what not to buy!), where to find it and how to use it. Most of all though, we have fun with makeup and we hope you’ll join us on our discovery of the hottest new products and our re-acquaintance with some old gems.
