About Me

Welcome to my personal space! I am Renji Anooj, a 36-year-old Indian with roots in Kerala. Currently residing in Hyderabad, India, I share my home with my husband Anooj, my parents, and my adorable 5-year-old twins – Dhwani & Dhruv & 1 year old Daksh. I am passionate about product photography and styling, and consider myself a computer geek and shopaholic. Makeupholic World is my platform where I share my love for all things I am passionate about. In my belief, a woman with an open smile and a joyful expression possesses a beauty that shines regardless of what she wears.

I am proud to be the COO and Co-Founder of Shesha Ayurveda, India’s leading Ayurvedic Skincare Brand. Having grown up in Kerala, I have a deep connection to the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, the cultural traditions of my homeland, and the healing power of natural medicine. My family background includes doctors, naturopaths, and skincare enthusiasts, further fueling my passion for nature and art. I firmly believe that Ayurvedic formulations and exotic plant-based ingredients have the ability to bring calmness to our bodies, minds, and spirits. Through Shesha Ayurveda, I strive to bring the best of classical Ayurvedic wisdom to the Western world, promoting the beautiful message of Ayurveda and sharing the cultural values of Kerala.
