Nykaa’s beauty editor

Nifty little beauty products tossed in a carryall, an assortment of formulations adorning the work desk and an unfathomable number of concoctions strewn on the dresser at home— welcome to the life of a beauty editor at Nykaa. Not a hyperbole (even in the slightest) intended for a theatrical effect(of sorts) but a testament to the all-encompassing world of beauty which commands a relentless commitment to the job.

The role of a beauty editor entails vetting beauty picks, jotting copious observational (or experiential) notes on the offering and eventually presenting it to the audience for their consideration. That’s right, we are always scouting the space for launches (the blink-and-miss variety along with the promising debutants) and sometimes rekindling flames with long-lost loves. Moreover, in the pursuit of bringing you only the best of recommendations, and nothing less, we leave no stone unturned in the detailed analysis of the formula, its potency and dissecting the results it may bear for the spectrum of targeted audiences — the reason why an editor’s picks ought to be reliable!

So, if you are looking for competent skincare heroes or superior makeup offerings (or both) to prep for the impending festivities (or to mix things up in your pre-existing regimen), you have landed on the right page. This month we have Nykaa's Beauty Editor Sara Shah revealing all her must-haves for February. With an innate writing talent and a penchant for curating out-of-the-box novel glam avatars, Sara has been weaving stories in the beauty biz for almost half a decade. Keep scrolling for some inspiration from this Beauty Editor to revamp your vanity!

The following inputs have been shared by Sara Shah

“Being mushy for an S/O is just not my thing, but ask me about self-care, and I'm aaaallll about spoiling myself silly. After years of completely shirking the fact that the skin on my arms and legs could be super sensitive, I've finally come to terms with it and only invest in gentle scrubs like this Dove Exfoliating Body Polish. The granules thoroughly buff away any dead skin, and your legs just feel extremely hydrated and happy, post-shower. Speaking of hydration, I'm not about to forget the next best invention since sliced bread (in my opinion, anyway) - Clinique Moisture Surge 100h Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. Let's just put aside the fact that this is the ONLY moisturiser that moisturises my skin without making it greasy or making it feel dry. BUT, it also makes my skin a lot smoother and reduces the appearance of texture. What more do I need? Nothing! As for my crown, nothing has been more nourishing and fortifying than the Nykaa Naturals Onion & Fenugreek Hair Growth Shampoo. It's slowed down my hairfall immensely and my strands have never looked shinier! Also, anyone who knows me well understands my obsession with perfect eye makeup. And it only makes sense that I'm always repurchasing the Chambor Volumeyes Mascara. The results are high-impact, long-lasting and my lashes look ultra thick and lush all day long.”
