EXPATRIATES IN MAURITIUS

LIFESTYLE

For a tiny island everything seemed larger than life: food, aromas, people, scenery; Just being here made life seem brighter!

 DEAR NISHTA, WHERE DO YOU HAIL FROM?
Being born into a British Mauritian family based in London, I was convinced that I would have a colorful life ahead. My Mauritian parents instilled the best values in me whilst growing up but my British background meant that I got the best of both worlds which moulded me into the strong willed, independent and fulfilled person that I am today.

WHO HAS HAD THE MOST INFLUENCE ON WHO YOU ARE TODAY?
My late father was always full of joie de vivre and eager to share his rags to riches life experiences unashamedly, these cherished memories are what have always been my driving force and in his own words always said “Life can be a bitter pill… So, you just have to take everything with a pinch of salt!”

WHAT MADE YOU COME BACK TO MAURITIUS?
Despite being born and bred in the UK I always had a deep connection to all Mauritian things as I used to come for family holidays every few years and progressively fell in love with its multicoloured, vibrant ambience. For a tiny island everything seemed larger than life: food, aromas, people, scenery; Just being here made life seem brighter! Since my first job I have had a background and passion for Marketing and Business Operations but I felt stifled by the restricted nature of the typical 9am – 5pm office job. Therefore upon completing a BA (Hons) Business Administration degree and working as a Business Implementations Administrator I decided to take a well deserved break in Mauritius. It was during this time that I was able to appreciate how many opportunities there are for new businesses and decided to take advantage of this flourishing economy by combining my personal passion in cosmetics and professional background in Business Administration.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN MAURITIUS?
True Perfection Semi Permanent Makeup is a business which I started in August 2015. I have always had a passion for cosmetics, fashion and absolutely anything aesthetically related and noticed a gap in the Mauritian market for something new which could benefit many ladies, who like me, like to keep up to date with the latest fashion trends. I currently offer three main treatments which give the appearance of makeup in a natural look which are the Upper Eyeliner Enhancement, Lower Eyeliner Enhancement and the Eyebrow Enhancement which helps create a darker, fuller, shapelier brow. The treatments are carried out using specialist pigments which are implanted in the mid to upper layers of the skin using the latest techniques in micro pigmentation, once completed the pigment remains there on a long term basis until they are broken down by natural physiological processes which results in gradual fading of the makeup over the course of 18 months. Those who have sensitive eyes and cannot wear makeup also benefit greatly from the eyeliner treatments as they don’t have to worry about sweating, swimming, itchy eyes and smudged makeup ever again!
Although we mostly consider semi permanent makeup to cosmetically enhance our appearance there are many other people who could benefit from a treatment due to medical reasons such as alopecia sufferers who have little or no natural eyebrows of their own. This is the more rewarding side of my job and I hope to expand into areola reconstruction and scar camouflage at a later stage, so much can be achieved with semi permanent makeup and can be life changing for some clients. Even more so excitingly, I am expecting my first child and am on maternity leave until September 2016 so please do not hesitate to get in touch with your queries until then.

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF HAPPINESS?
I have learnt that happiness is not a one fits all formula. Materialistically speaking I have everything I could ever have wanted but this did not have any bearing on how happy I was until I was able to re-evaluate what I truly wanted by my own standards as opposed to the standards of others! So, overall the main philosophy that I live by is to simply live life your way and no other way. This means that your achievements will always be on your own merit and your
regrets will be your own lessons learnt.
