What kind of makeup do you do?

My primary roots are from the Arab makeup so imagine a combination of the best features from the Arab makeup world and inspiration from Pakistani glamour to form a new form of Indian makeup that is focusing on the most dominating features and signature flawless skin. Our flawless skin finish, dramatic eye makeup and defined brows are the most rated features to stand out from the rest.

Satisfaction Guarenteed

Makeup will be completed to client\\\\\\\'s satisfaction, but not exceed allotted makeup time. Ample time is given for each makeup upon booking. Acceptance of completed makeup application by client is acknowledgement by client that makeup is done to her satisfaction.

How do I book my wedding dates?

To secure a date, agreement with 50% deposit is required. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. Please be aware the dates and time will not be blocked without the above at the time of the trial in cash or a bank transfer if the trial is not required.

Is the makeup waterproof?

One word- YES! As a city which is rarely any less humid and brides that cry, everything is completely waterproof, that means the bride does not have to worry about the makeup when her emotions do the watering. How cool is that?

Do you have a studio/parlor?

I am an on location makeup artist that means all makeup and related services are scheduled and completed at the comfort of client's authorized venue (home or any other).

How long does it take?

Full face makeup takes 1.5 hour.
Any hairstyle takes 1 hour. So, that is a minimum of 2 hours and maximum of 3 hours for one bridal booking with grace period time in case of any other work such as styling and portfolio shots.

What is a trial, how do I get one?

A trial is a pre-wedding makeup consultation for those who want to try out different looks for their big day. They can have inspiration pictures of the style they like and then we work on translating it upon individual facial features to what looks best. This helps one see the before and after photos and make informed decisions on agreeing upon a look. You will get advice on your skincare as well so you look your best on the day. Basically the trial saves the time for the wedding as the location will be easy to visit again as well as makeup application will not have any interference on the event day. To schedule, simply call or email and you will be given an appointment day and time. Please note that trials are paid and available on limited dates.
Note that there should be a minimum of seven (7) days difference between bookings and trial and trial appointment dates are allotted on availability of the artist.

Is hairstyling included?

The makeup alone is not enough to complete anyone's look. Hairstyling for the bride is a supplementary service but that doesn\\\\\\\'t mean that quality is hampered in any way. Just like makeup how we focus on using the foolproof products, we ensure the hair products are nothing less than luxurious. With the latest hair trends and techniques, we ensure your hairstyle will be the most fashion forward and complements your face shape and outfit. We also include the best hair accessories which are complementary for every bride/client.

Are there any service location requirements?

Location of service for the day-of-event will be at the discretion of the client, but there are certain requirements the makeup artist needs to complete the makeup applications. A \\\\\\\'set up table/work area needs to be made available for the makeup artist at said location. Ample lighting, whether by means of natural light or by lamps is necessary for services to be performed properly.

Liability - Allergies and Hygiene

All brushes and makeup products are kept sanitary and are sanitized between every makeup application. Makeup products used are hypoallergenic. Any skin conditions should be reported by the client to the makeup artist prior to application and, if need be, a sample test of makeup may be performed on the skin to test reaction. Client(s) agree to release the makeup artist from liability for any skin complications due to allergic reactions.

No, we have fixed prices for party makeup, engagement makeup and bridal makeup. We do not do one thing such as eye makeup or the base.

No, hairstyle or tika setting service is supplementary. One has to have a booking for makeup first to avail hairstyle services.
