Q1. How and when did you start your Entrepreneur Journey to serve in the Wedding industry? What inspired you to start your own business?

I got my inspiration initially from one of my friend's mothers who had learned a Hairdressing course from a very Well-known Hairdresser around 15+ years back. Looking at her, I got interested in hairdressing and after a few years, I started learning hairdressing.

I started my business 10-11 years back. I started as a HairDresser and then I did a Personal Grooming Course. So by doing my own makeup slowly I got interested in the makeup field and then I decided to learn from a Professional Academy and start my business.

Q2. Kindly describe more about your business, your role, products/services.

With an experience that spans more than a decade, we give my brides a makeover that highlights their natural beauty. Following the mantra ‘beauty lies in simplicity’, we create looks with natural looking and dewy skin. Using high-end brands, we ensure you are the spotlight’s muse on your big day. We provide various services i.e Bridal Makeovers, Pre-wedding shoots, Party makeup, Baby shower Looks etc.

Q3. Please share about the unique feature/specialty/USP of your Product/Service.

Possessing an immense passion for my craft, I always keep myself updated with the latest trends and love to innovate with new techniques. Trained under industry stalwarts, I am a sought-after makeup artist who keeps my clients’ comfort my number one priority.

We have done 15-20 siders with help of my team for an event and made them ready 2 days for two events.

Q4. How would you explain the importance of your role in a Wedding?

A Makeup artist plays an important role for a bride on her special day by making her look more beautiful by enhancing her features more, giving her the look she has dreamed for her special day.

Q5. What are the most common challenges you face at the wedding you are handling?

Many times Brides don’t have bridesmaids around to help her with outfit jewellery. Challenges are mostly time constraints if the Bride is late or her pre-function gets delayed by any chance and they are also stressed about the same.

Even because of the delay, we are unable to take pictures and videos of our beautiful brides.

Q6. How do you deal with these challenges?

We always help our brides with everything from making her calm with some music, applying face masks, and giving massages to them.

We help them with outfit, jewellery, shoes everything so they don’t forget anything and look perfect on their special day.

Q7. Could you share one of your most unique creations/experience for/of a wedding?

The most memorable wedding for me is surely the recent one in Lonavala.

This client booked us just two weeks before her wedding. She had spoken to me long back for the same but her mother in law booked someone else and she couldn’t refuse. After taking a trial from the other Makeup Artist, she was very upset and dissatisfied and she connected with me immediately. We were available so we could make it.

She was from US - Texas so she was very excited for Indian wedding rituals. She had 5 functions and she wore a lehenga for all her ceremonies as she wanted to get ready in an Indian attire and she loves lehengas.

We created 5 different looks for her every time, a new variation of eye look and hairstyle. 
We didn’t repeat any eye look or hairstyle for her, every time she looked different and she loved all her 5 looks.

Q8. What type of collaborations would you like to explore in future?

Collaboration with Event Managers and Actors would be my next target. Now I want to explore the shooting industry as well.

Q9. What is your vision for the next five years?

Next 5 years, I want to grow my client base and cover as many destinations as I can. Make every Brides' special day more special for her.

Q10. What would you advise new entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain in the business?

For new members, just be patient, keep doing your work with all positive energy and always give your best.
