Welcome to Corallista!
My name is Ankita and I’m the Author and Editor of this blog.
I am a beauty enthusiast from India, newly relocated to Mumbai after 1.5 years in Japan. I started this blog in January 2011 while pursuing my Bachelors in Technology at IIT Bombay to share my love for makeup and beauty with the online community. You will find product reviews on makeup, skincare and occasional hair/body care products on this blog apart from Makeup Tutorials, Looks, Celebrity Makeup breakdowns and a little bit about my life outside of makeup.
I coined the term ‘Corallista‘ inspired by the Coral rage that had taken the beauty world by storm when I founded this blog (it happens to be one of my favorite shades when it comes to makeup)! What started as a hobby soon grew into a passion and upon completing my engineering degree in 2012, I have devoted myself full time to building Corallista as a one-stop destination for beauty lovers looking for comprehensive reviews, looks and tutorials online.
I have naturally dark brown eyes (but I wear colored s most of the time), black-brown hair and fair-to-medium neutral skin tone. I love playing with color and you will find me reviewing products and creating looks from all colors of the spectrum! I love red lips, metallic neutrals, smokey eyes, corals and hot pinks.
You can me at for any makeup queries or PR related requests. I will answer all queries and requests as soon as I can. If you would like to request a makeup tutorial or a product review, you can email me your requests.
