About Me



Welcome to The Coffee Canvas! I’m Ishita and I’m so glad you’re here! 😀

I’m a 27 year old beauty junkie from New Delhi, India. Even though I’ve been really interested in makeup and beauty products since I was a kid (I tried to dye my hair brown when I was just 12 years old), my obsession for the same sky rocketed in the past 3-4 years.

I’m a brown girl with VERY oily skin. Over the years, while trying to find that perfect face wash, or the perfect contour shade for my skin tone, I realised how HARD it was for me to find exactly what I was looking for. So, I decided to start this blog, to share my love for beauty and my journey in finding the next best product for my skin type and skin colour 🙂

I have fine, thin and sort of straight hair, with an extremely oily scalp and dry ends. I also have a genetic scalp condition called Alopecia due to which my hair has started thinning quite a lot.

In no way am I an expert on skincare products or a professional make-up artist, but I am a self proclaimed hoarder and I simply want to share my thoughts and views on beauty products, especially the ones that work for me.

My beauty profile –

  • Skin Tone – Brown, Tan Skin with yellow undertones
  • Skin Type – Super oily (Usually a grease ball within 2 hours of washing face or applying makeup)
  • Hair Type – Very fine, straight, thinning hair. Naturally very dark brown

Foundation Shades which work for me –

  • MAC Foundation Shade – NC 43/NC 44
  • Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Shade – Golden Caramel 332
  • NYX Total Control Drop – Caramel
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Shade – 4W2 Toasty Toffee 
  • Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r – 330 (Slightly yellower but oxidises into my shade)
  • HUDA Beauty Faux Filter – 430 N Gingerbread
  • L.A. Colors Truly Matte Foundation – Cafe
