Speaking On Her Fashion& Make Ups
When I am not going out, I don’t wear make up. But I am a very colourful person and I like colourful things. In the whole of the make up, my favourite is the eye shadow.

Where I am going determines the kind of make up I wear. If I am going for corporate business, my make up will be calm. When I am going for show business, I wear the make up that says flaunt it if you got it.
