Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I always had a passion to do something creative, and wanted to make a career which will help me in both earning money as well as being creative . I am so fascinated by the fact that you can blend colours and create art with makeup.I love wearing it on myself as well as making others beautiful. Makeup magnifies the beauty that already exists and I think this is the best thing for me.

Yes, the most interesting thing is among all thr are few friends with whom I share a great bond .We always help each other and I consider myself to be lucky for that. When I started initially as a makeup artist , showcasing your own talent was a must, so I started practicing regularly for few days and one of my friend who is a fashion/ event and wedding photographer helped me in creating makeup portfolios and in makeup photoshoots. Now for a perfect look on any kind of makeover there are many factors to b considered like the accessories,the attire, the products according to the skin type etc etc without which the makeover is incomplete. Along with the practice I started doing makeover of my friends with different looks which include glamour, matte, mineral, natural, shimmer,smokey and many more. They loved it and were pampered by their dear ones for thr appealing look . I was also excited to showcase and display their pictures on different platforms, once I did it within few days I started getting calls for different events and from different sources and this is how I got my first Client.At the time of makeover and shoot we used to do lot of fun by laughing, giggling n posing which made the task more interesting.
Which is your best event experience till date?
