Best bridal makeup artists in Delhi
I feel like throwing a monkey at someone as i write this. I am super annoyed *grumpy face* . I want to get my bridal makeup done by one of these makeup artists below and since my functions happen in hyderabad and not in my awesome hometown of Delhi, thats not possible .*Huff*. Still, since i am a sweet heart (NOT), i thought i shall put together a list for brides to be who are getting married in this city!

EDIT: This post was written in 2011.  I decided to put all my favourite makeup artists as of 2013 in one place along with their work on my new website called wedmegood.com  I have tried to show some of the best people for their price range (Starting at 8000 going upto 30,000). These are people who do subtle, non christmas tree type of makeup.A list for the same is below

 

For those willing to spend more than Rs 20,000 per function on Bridal Makeup:

  • Chandni singh Bridal Makeup  Chandni singh is a hugely talented makeup artist who shies away from loud bridal makeup. All of her brides look stunningly prettier without the excessive color on their faces that other makeup artists can do. She styles hair too and if you go through her website you will realise why she’s considered one of the best makeup artists in delhi: subtle and understated but still bridal. You will definitely look like a better version of yourself with Chandni Singh.
See her work on my wedding blog : Chandni Singh Bridal Makeup
Price: 25000
 
  • Komal Gulati: If you are a bride with an international frame of mind, then Komal Gulati is perfect. I love that the way she does bridal is not in the traditional indian way. You wont see matchy eyeshadow, but just gorgeous natural neutral shades that look good on your skin no matter what you are wearing- an evening gown or a heavy lehenga. LOVE. Totally Recommend. Take a look at her website photos and yll know what im talking about
Price: Expensive
See her work on my wedding blog wed me good: Komal Gulati
  • Vidya Tikari: She was the artist of choice at two of my other  close friends weddings and they made stunning brides !! I think Vidya Tikari brides are a good blend of light , subtle washes of color but still looking dressy enough for weddings. If you want a flawless look, ask for Vidya herself and not her assistants, whoa re good too but Vidya is truly a class apart. She also is very receptive to client suggestions, and you can definitely tell her the kind of bride you want to be and she can help you turn that into reality.
Price: Rs 22,000 approx for Bridal if done by Vidya herself
Website for makeup photos:http://www.vidyatikari.in/
  • Anu Kaushik If you want to look like a bride thats just completely effortlessly natural, but oh so pretty in a bridal glowing way, then Anu Kaushik is absolutely genius. I feel like her work is much better in person than what you see on the site, and having seen 3 Anu Kaushik Brides, i can say that she is totally worth it ! Subtle, but still bride-worthy- AND honestly she is worth every penny that she charges

Website: www.anukaushik.com

 

For those willing to spend between Rs 10-20k per function on Bridal Makeup: 
  • Shalini Singh from Style Studio

 After seeing two of my closest friends on their engagement, my immediate reaction was: Where is your makeup from?? They looked glowing, and radiant but still very much like themselves-  playing up their best features and looking totally gorgeous, yet understated. Both of them answered- Shalini Singh and once i went to her website i realised she has been around since 2001 and has done a lot of work for celebrities, for brides, and for magazines. Take a look at her bridal portfolio- thats exactly the kind of bride i want to be!

Price: Rs 20,000 for Bridal. Lesser charges for subsequent functions

See her work on my new wedding blog: Shalini Singh

 

  • Shruti Sharma

Shruti’s flawless base as well as her ability to make her brides look innately Indian but still with a contemporary feel is just amazing ! I love her work, and me being a non red lips person I adore how she uses oranges , corals and pinks on most of her brides. Polished, contemporary but stil bridal is shruti’s forte

See her work on my wedding blog: Shruti Sharma Bridal Makeup

Price : Approx 15k on engagement and more expensive for bridal

 

  • Simran Kalra Makeup

For the price she charges, Simran Kalra is a superstar ! She is so versatile in giving different kinds of looks and she totally understands the meaning of a bride looking elegant and polished and not made up! Huge fan of her work and once you take one look at her profile you will know why she made it to our list.

See her work on my new blog: Simran Kalra

Price: 13000/- approx for engagement.
  • Sakshi Sagar

 A new one on the scene and Sakshi Sagar is definitely one of the better ones out there. She uses mostly gold tones and has a signature winged eye, however have a conversation with her and explain your preferences so she can accomodate

Price: Rs  15-18k for bridal
See her work on my new blog: Sakshi Sagar
  • Avantika Kapur

A name recently discovered, has been trained under Chandni SIngh and her brides glow like lightbulbs ! We loved her work so much we added her to our own wedding professional showcase.

Price: between 15k-19k

See her work on my new blog: Avantika Kapur

  • Tejasvini Chander

Tejasvini is a young girl who I think has a super bright future! Her work is subtle, and polished and I love the fresh pink tones she uses on her brides!!!

Price: between 14-19k

See her work facebook: Tejasvini Chander

I think Chandni Singhs hair and make up is the best I have seen so far! I come from a big family and have seen a lot of cousins get married in the past decade….and they all have been through vidya/ambika/mrignaina and meenakshi….but now having seen and met chandni I think her work is stupendous! Completely recommend her! charges 30k but so totally worth it!

Hi! I visited Shalini Singh a few days back and she really put me off! She is good no doubt but she kept on bitching about some of the brides she worked with. About their jewellery… their lehenga.. their eyebrows etc etc. I was really put off by her attitude and instantly decided not to finalize her.. the one who bitches with you will bitch of you. Oh yes, I met Richa of http://www.aboutfaces.co.in and she seemed pretty good. I might go to her for the big day. Definitely not Shalini Singh because no matter how good she is I would definitely not want someone who’s too judgemental and critical.

Hi! I just read the comment posted by Tanya which quite surprised me!! My apologies I’m not able to place having met u Tanya( but i did meet a Gunjan who asked me about facial treatments she should get done and I did suggest to her about eyebrow correction, my apologies if that offended her) but I wud really like to clarify that what a bride chooses to wear in terms of her clothes or jewelry is entirely her prerogative and personal choice and do not wish to give any personal views on that. All i mention in my meetings with potential brides is that each has a different requirement and expectation and though I by choice like to keep the makeup very natural many a times the work I churn out may not be of my choice…. As regards eyebrows go i do remember having told a few brides on correcting the shape only to soften the face and enhance their eyes. Even in my remotest conversation it is never my intent to bitch anyone. I completely understand how important the wedding day is for any bride and it is always my endeavor to make her look and feel her best!!! In fact I’m always available to all my brides for any queries that even go beyond makeup….. And Tanya my apologies if anything I said upset u!! Take care and wish u all the Best!! I’m sure u made a good choice in whichever makeup artist u decided to go with finally….. Stay happy!!

My sister Devika and I got our makeup from Shalini, and she is UNDOUBTEDLY the best makeup artist we have come across owing to which atleast 5 other bride friends of ours went to her. I wish to disagree with Tanya as I feel her allegations of Shalini being bitchy about her brides etc are baseless. My family has grown to develop a relationship with her which is beyond the ambit of our engagement with her for wedding makeup.
In so far as ur allegation of her being judgmental etc are concerned, I think you need to double check ur facts because she has only advised each of us regarding our makeup products, shape of the eyebrows that would best suit our face structure in addition to advice relating to wedding outfits. We visited her twice before the wedding time and not once did we encounter such an alleged “bitching session” about her brides.
There is no one else I would go to or even recommend other than her as I blindly trust her work, judgement and warm nature which yields a wonderful experience for a bride on her most important day.

Hi Tanya,

Am very shocked to hear your comment on Shalini Singh. She was simply awesome for me! She did my makeup for 5 functions and every time it exceeded my expectations. I dont think i would have looked even half as nice if it wasn’t for her. And as a person, she is super sweet and goes much beyond just applying makeup – she gave me advice for my skin, how to carry my clothes, makeup i could use regularly and much more. So not sure where you are really coming from!

I disagree with you, Tanya. Have you seen Bosky & Richa’s (http://www.aboutfaces.co.in) work? If yes, then you would know better than to choose them over Style Studio by Shalini. Work-wise, there is no comparison between Shalini & them. Trust me, better to have a GREAT makeup artist, (opinionated or not) on your special day rather than one who makes you look like a overdone, pasty-faced mannequin. Remember, it’s yourself you’re going to see (not your make-up artist) when you look through your wedding albums. Be smart and choose the makeup artist who can make you look your best. Good luck!

I hired Shalini Singh to do my makeup at my wedding and the results were outstanding :) As someone who has zero experience with makeup, I was understandably nervous about how things were going to turn out on the day. To add to my woes, it started pouring on the day and I arrived very late for the makeup session. Shalini took all of this in her stride, understood my concerns, and went about her job very professionally. And boy was she quick! She had me ready in 30-mins flat and went above and beyond her call of duty to help me drape my lehenga and have me looking just right :) I was very pleased with the results and would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.

Devika August 2, 2012 at 9:13 am

i could go blindly for shalini singh’s make up after what she did for me for my wedding functions.. i cant believe the negative review someone has posted cz shalini can never be like that. shes not only amazing at her make up skills she also gives the best advice on what coulour would suit the best ..on your skin etc.. and this should be taken as a blessing than a negtive cz its better to know what you shouldnt do than just look bad on your d-day.. i would strongly recommend shalini for wedding as well as party makeup.. on my wedding day, being a morning wedding me and my family landed up at her place at 7:30 am.. she was so sweet and helpful.. her makeup was amazing and so was the hair and draping of outfits.. she had all of us ready on time and more than that was even concerned about me not having eaten anything and she actually gave me breakfast in her house cz it was a long day ahead for me. she does these small things which i never had to ask for.. just shows the kind of person she is- considerate and extremely helpful.. i would highly recommend shalini and would not even want to try anyone else ever thanks to her being such an amazing person..

tanya September 14, 2012 at 3:46 pm

right devika she is a sweet lady and very helpful for a would be bride she would be as concerned as a bride’s own mother would be for the bride like how can the bride would look the best on her d day as this is a important day for a girl she was never bitchy with anyone…..she would always try to do the best and never comprise on anything bridal make up is done everywhere but the concern and care she has for brides is tremendous for my wedding i can’t of any other artist than shalini i was always scared of too dark make up and all but she makes a bride look very natural and not the very gody look ……:-)

I did a lot of research before finalising my make up artist and I dont think anyone could have done a better job than Shalini Singh!! she was amazing… and not only did she do a brilliant job with the make up and draping.. she was super nice… put me completely at ease… i dont what you are talking about Tanya.. Shalini even gave me her own maang tikka on my engagement day coz it went with my outfit and i had forgotten my own…. all the brides to be out there…i would trust shalini completely… she made my wedding and engagement days so memorable as i was showered with compliments:) she is a rock star!!

Hi girls, well I know these are all pretty known names within the city but I just got engaged last month and I got my makeup done by Kam, she’s from gurgaon but she travels to where ever you need her too. She’s lived in London too and worked in Harrods for makeup as well. She’s Indian but can do whatever look it is that you’re looking for! I was wearing a western gown and didn’t want my makeup to look too over the top and she did an amazing job! Beautiful smokey eyes with a hint of dusky gold. Wow!!!! Everybody was complimenting her work! I’m definitely going to take her on for my wedding, she’s very versatile and can carry of any look!
I really struggled to find the perfect makeup artist and felt the leading names were too gaudy. In the end I felt that her team was just brill!

She takes 20,000 for bridal makeup and it’s so damn worth it! I felt like a princess on my big day! Call her, 9911511115 :)

I am quite surprised to read the comments about Shalini. I had heard about her from quite a few ppl… and went to visit her a few months back. She was warm and welcoming and very friendly. I had just started out with my shopping (with absolutely no clue) and she gave me names of designers, put me in touch with ppl, suggested colours for my outfits… all of which I d term as suggestions, not bitchiness. She did show me snaps of her work, and wherever she felt that a bride’s makeup was not her personal style-which was subtle, she pointed it out to me. I did nt think that was bitchy of her, simply stating facts… because I for one would be really scared of loud make up (since I have a day wedding).

My mom and me felt so much at ease, I instantly booked her for my wedding and reception… without really even going for a trial. And I checked with my friends- everyone said to completely trust her and not bother with a trial.

Looking forward to working with you Shalini- come december :)

Hi,

I am getting married on Nov 1 ..Have already spoken to most of the names mentioned here, but most are either unavailable or charge a hefty sum. My budget is between 10-15 K. I am looking at ALPS, Laxmi Nagar and LAKME, Karkardooma parlours. Any reviews on these? These are near my place and the wedding is on a weekday. Is there anyone who does make up at the venue in that range ? I don wanna travel too far away and get stuck in traffic.

Thanks
Pallavi

Neha October 10, 2012 at 9:48 am

Pallavi, U can check at Looks Salon, V3S mall. The charges are very reasonable and the MUA is very nice. She did my rokka makeup n it was very subtle girly kinds. You can talk to her about ur preferences. Per my experience she is definitely better than Lakme karkardooma n V3S.

Isha Chaudhary October 11, 2012 at 11:13 pm

In my opinion; Renu Arora’s hair & make-up is the best i have seen so far! Either me or my family members have gone across all the biggest names in the industry but never got the personal attention that Renu gives to her clients. Her charges are reasonable & creates stunning looks.

Meenakshi, Ambika, Vidya, Chandani & so on has merely become brand name. Not worth it getting your makeup done by them.

I would recommend Renu Arora for every to-be bride. Her website address is http://www.renuarora.in

Richa October 14, 2012 at 12:04 am

Hi Mehak!
I cant seem to decide between Vidya Tikari and Shalini singh.
I saw sme pictures on each of their websites and the brides all looked nice
Shalini’s brides were maybe too understated or ‘just perfect’ ??? not sure
and some of Vidya’s brides were a little ‘out there’.

also which one do you think would be better in terms of personalized attention? I know I’m talking about the two best people out there but Help! :)

what a fabulous blog for all brides to be. this place seems to hv all the necessary information that a bride would require. so went through all the possible names of make up artists and loved Chandni Singh & Anjelina. I went through all of there websites- meenakshi dutt, shalini singh, vidya tikari, ashmeen munjal, renu arora but found their work too tacky !! Ambika seems to be a bridal factory with no personalised attention what so ever!!I mean who does red green eye shadows now with cakey white foundation? I think the new generation of make up artist have arrived – Chandni Singh clearly stands out!

Shalini October 26, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Hii Rashi :-) u r rite dat ambika has bridal factory with no personalise attention. I also think that new generation not like cakey patch foundation with green and red eyeshadow which is very common at Ambika,shalini, vidya tikari makeup. I like chandini makeup but.. she is good at Fashion Makeup not at Bridal Makeup at all. I guess u didnt check her website properly otherwise you wud have agree with me. I heard about Poonam rawat that her Bridal Makeover is too Classy and flawless. I have checked her website and already booked her for my NRI sister’s Wedding and Reception makeup :-). If you want Poonam Contact no is- 9650867080. Do take care and hv fun ;-)

Also, would be glad if someone can provide a feedback of Looks Salon at GK for bridal makeup..?

Hi Richa,

I ve heard Suzaane from Plum in GK-II is good- I ve seen her work on brides and she s quite subtle.

The other option is Shalini Singh (see Mehak’s write up)- her house is in Panchsheel Enclave and she gets brides ready at her place. She charges around 18K- but there is no difference between what she charges for the wedding day and for other functions.

Rashi Malik November 10, 2012 at 11:56 am

i did check out plum at gk 2 as well. i was not so impressed with their bridal album because most of them were ‘shoot images’. they barely had 2 images of real brides there. i mean come on salons have to be dumb to think that we cannot make the difference out between shoot images and real brides. i think its better to pay up and get the best because looking like a disaster is not an option on your d day!

Brilliant,magnificent,fantastic, I can go on and on and still not praise chandni Singh enough. After checking out so many make up artists in Delhi it was my good fortune I ended up with chandni to do my bridal and I would like to add it was becoz of my best friend shweta who swears by chandni’s make up magic. I don’t have to ask anyone, I know I never looked better than what chandni made me look like on my wedding. That’s not it. My sister inlaws were so impressed they wanted chandni for my reception. Poor girl slogged so hard to get the 3 of us ready. Thank u Chandni u r the bestest. Mwaaah darling. Luv u.

mehak November 25, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Lol …
is all i can say.. why would i list down 6 makeup artists if i wanted to promote just one? I assume yr referrng to the fact that why im deleting comments which are promoting other makeup artists
This is because people are creating fake names, (Im not stupid) and writing comments like “Öh you must check out xyz”etc shes great, much better than the above etc !!! If a genuine comment comes along that genuinely recommends someone, i approve it, but there is no place for self promotion on this blog- specially by makeup artists themselves who want to get promoted by creating fake id’s and commenting.
Secondly, if i get to know of a makeup artist whose style i really like, the list expands and i add another one. Unforntunately most of the makeup artists who approach me or “Fake comment” mentioning their site are not my style or my preference at all. Hence they are not recommended.

Reply

Jhanvi November 27, 2012 at 11:44 pm

I am probably being sarcastic but I only came to this conclusion after reading so many comments which encourage few makeup artists rather than those who really got talent. Please accept my apologies if I am wrong to post here.

You pointed out in your reply that you listed down 6 makeup artist in your blog & not promoting just one; then why did you put Chandani singh, Michell montes & Shalini singh’s name over Vidya tikari & Ambika pillai names?? Do you really think that these names which I just mentioned are worth putting on top despite the fact that their work doesn’t speak much about their bridal makeup capability? I must remind you that your blog is meant for “bridal makeup artist” not fashion makeup artist. Please correct me if am wrong!!

Your blog must encourage the work of those who really got brilliance in the field of Bridal Makeup & to do this; you should make self finding efforts in spite of relying on your blog readers’ comments. After all you are the creator of this blog & your own findings can add more interest & uniqueness to your blog.

I never knew th “Örder” of writing names mattered. Have i ranked them? Obviously not. This is my blog, and it portrays what I think and according to me, i have seen prettier brides of the former than the latter.Obviously, you have not seen bridal makeup done by any of the former in person before and thats why yr coming to this conclusion that the popular ones should be mentioned first . I find that arguement slightly funny actually, i write whatever comes into my head first..not like*OOh let me put her last*. What are we in high school?

wow!! Your blog seems to be the apt place to get all bridal info! I just got fixed recently and to my complete surprise the date is in feb! So running around like a ma woman getting quotations from every vendor u can think of. Right now my priority is fixing my photographer and make up artist as i believe 20 and 21 feb are heavy wedding dates. i am looking at a candid photorapher who can capture moments and not just whatshappning there. Have gone through so many websites and love Photo tantra sspersonally. Also met this girl called bhumika, she does not have great experience but what ever little she has shown me is stunning and ofcourse is availabe for a astunning price. Like any woman make up remains of primary concern to me as i would ike to look like myself and not like an alien on my special days. yes i seem to agrre that regular salons cannot do a professional job when it comes to make up. SO obviously i am bent towards names like ambika pillai, vidya tikari and anu kaushik. ambika oflate does not seem to come highly recommended. vidya still seems to hv a good reputation. anu kaushik is terribly expensive for me. I believe Chandni Singh is launching her salon too . So am just confused with who to pick? Suggestions please.

Supriya Mimani December 28, 2012 at 6:29 pm

How often does it happen that almost everyone who comes on stage asks you where you got your make-up done from, because it is looking so beautiful…
This was the case with me and my sister..with both our wedding just a day apart…both of us went to Plum in GK2 salon, got the make-up done from a senior artist(Rachna..i think) and it was worth every penny(only 7000/-)..
And the reason I chose plum was because my friend, who made a beautiful bride..was a plum bride too..
And the best part was, that i changed the eyeliner look 3 times…and the make-up artist dint crib, or spend 15 min trying to convince me that what she had done was looking nice on me..(an irritating experience which I have had in many other parlours)..she was patient, and very accomodating..
Plum..highly recommended..

mona December 29, 2012 at 2:15 am

Hii Mehak, I am too agree with many people who all said that you promote only two three names like chandini and shalini I personally checked both website but find not worth at all because as far as everybody knows dat every makeup artist has own specialization. they may be good for fashion work but not bridal. I find everytime you laugh on others comment but that cant change the facts so kindly respect and dnt delete any blog. let people try some other good makeup artist like Ricky seth and Poonam Rawat they are really worth. please guys kindly google both name and check their website and decide urself wt is truth. love u allll.. :-)

I think you have posted atleast 4 times in this thread alone.

I went to 3 different make up artists for my hair and make up over all 3 occasions of mine and now that the pictures are here for me to see, I look the best on my reception day with hair & make up done by chandni Singh. I cant really bad mouth any other artists as it was my decision to hire them, after seeing their work. probably thats the best they could do ! also the whole salon experience was wonderful with chandni because it was just so spacious and clean & a highly efficinet and well dressed staff! my best friend got dressed by the senior artist, Ajay, at the salon and the make up was as gorgeous!

I would like to say that Shalini Singh did a fabulous job for my sister’s wedding make up around 10 days back..! Not only was it subtle and she looked herself, but she is open to the bride’s opinion..!!
The individual attention that you get in her make up studio inside her home, is what a bride really needs after all the pre-wedding hungama. Three hours of pampering and not feeling like a product on a conveyor belt is a PLUS…
The pictures are beautiful with no one shining like an oil cake… A definite recommendation for all brides to be..!

Reply

Anupama Bhatia March 19, 2013 at 6:53 pm

Its amazing to see how make up/wedding blogs actually help brides to be, make an informed decision. Of course a word of mouth reference helps better. Chandni Singh came highly recommended to me by more than half a dozen women who had gotten dressed for their special occasions by her. I paid her a visit at her salon and was floored by her passion towards her work. Have booked her for all 3 of my functions scheduled in April + am also attending her make up workshop to learn ‘DIY’ make up skills. Her body of work is impressive to the hilt and her warmth and charm makes her an absolute delight to be with! Highly recommend her!

If i had a problem with othwr MUA , why would i let mala etc comment. You yourself said it right so i dont know what yr argueing about.

The point is- i know who comments as a genuine person, and who comments only to promote some person and this place is not something for self promotion. If a genuine person comes and says oh xyz is great, ill publish it, but if the same person comes in again and again and says oh click this link shes great blah blah blah. Not happening.

Anyhow im writing to you coz im absolutely clueless about makeup and ur blog has been a kind of savior. i have never and i mean never worn make up….i seem to hate the cakey look. And the to be husband has also requested me not to wear any makeup for the wedding (only if they got what it means to be the Bride!!!)

So im kinda a jealous that your a Delhi and not Mumbai- or that you didnt get married in Mumbai, reason being- my life would be so simple had i had a list of the best make up artists in Mumbai!!!

Hi Mehak

I have my wedding in November 2013 in Nainital.Please help me find a makeup artist for my three functions in Nainital – Engagement, Wedding & Reception.I would prefer a economical makeup artist as it is a destination wedding & travelling & other charges would also incur.I am really confused :O
Hoping for you reply :)

Hi prachi,

all the makeup artists listed are amazing (except for the ones operating salons) and travel outstation. Whether it be Michelle Montes, Aakriti Kochar, KritiDS , etc. Just search freelance makeup artist on google and you’ll get the results.

Hey Mehak

I am getting married in July..and stressing about it as I am overseas and have no idea about the make up artists (except a few) in Delhi. My first choice for make up was Vidya Tikari but can’t go to her as her Lajpat Nagar studio is way too far from the wedding venue. I was wondering if you have seen bridal make up done by senior artists of Vidya Tikari? Are they any good?

Hi,
I just came across this post and thought maybe you could help me! I am from Canada and i’m getting married to my fiance in Punjab in Oct 2013. We are both canadian but most of his family is in in Punjab. I am having a very difficult time finding makeup artists in Punjab, and i’m quite stressed out. It’s hard for me to find anyone because I can only use the internet to search for good makeup artists. Is there anyone you could recommend? Someone who can do makeup in Punjab? or if you know where else I can look to find this information. If you can help, it would be great!!

It was always a dream to look like a princess on my darling sisters wedding and KOMALGULATI, made my dream come true. Every occasion she gave me a different look complementing the clothes , thus completing my perfect look. Bold over by her excellent makeup skills I got motivated to join her make up classes which helped me learn a lot about the right makeup techniques and also helped me have a makeover. She’s the best makeup artist in town as she knows how to accentuate the best feature of the person….. Love uuu, ur d best KOMALGULATI !!!!!

Hey Mehak

First of all thanks a lot, your blog has really helped me a lot in looking for lehengas and now I am looking for a MUA aswell. I really like Chandni Singh’s work. Was checking her website, which says the bridal make up from senior makeup artist is 12000 onwards. Do you have any idea about how the senior make up artists at her salon are?

Hi Nikita,

Meeta Dixit June 28, 2013 at 1:56 pm

Dear Mehak,
I must compliment you on your blog firstly. It has all vital information that a bride and a make up junkie could ask for. I got married many years back and then the only 2 people who were prominent in the world of make up were Ambika & Vidya. I had opted for Vidya then as I found her work better but was hugely disappointed when all my pleas to keep the make up simple were ignored. To my horror she wasnt even there once she had completed my make up as per her style. My younger sister got fixed a few months back and we set out to do our share of research for every vendor on earth. For make up we fixed Chandni Singh and she was spectacular. I got dressed by her senior assistant and my mom had used the junior artist services and we were mighty pleased. Every request was heard and attended too and I must say her salon is out of the league. Beautiful vintage decor and huge! A must visit!

Her makeover are simply flawless.. in my wedding.. i got the makeup done by her…she made me look like altogether a different elegant, exceptionally pretty and really glorious bride.

Hi Mehak

I have been reading your blog since a loong time now and i want to thank you for giving me a head-start in my prep for marriage. I have done humongous research on the best MAU but for dates which are heavy, nothing can be predicted. We are never sure of quality if we go to someone less popular or is just a “one man army” , but we can also not be sure of the kind of time and attention we will get in big names as the QUEUE is loong ….
I have inquired and all the big ones like Vidya can even do 15-20 in a day which makes me scared !!!

Luck here is obviously a very important factor.

But, i really really need one suggestion of Yours …..(as i have got over confused with online research) : SHOULD I GO FOR AIR BRUSH MAKEUP OR NORMAL MAKEUP …..???
Ambika , Vidya and the likes use only air brush for their brides and so answer to my question can make my life easier by just putting some names off the list…

Thanks in advance for your continued help :)
cheers

Reply

mehak July 9, 2013 at 9:27 am

Ummm both are fine…but its not true that ambika and vidya do only airbrush…as far as i know they do both…
if yr confused between the two, personally vidya is more my style…but if you can afford to spend a bomb i would go with chandni singh/komal gulati/anu kaushik

Reply

Kamini July 11, 2013 at 2:20 pm

Hi,

Here’s my cents…..like may of you I also did a lot of research on the net and otherwise about the MUA I should get….n finally selected Vidya Tikari for my wedding day. I have to mention here that I have been a kajal and lip balm only kinda girl all my life n so knew very little about makeup in general. But I have to say that Vidya did a fab job, the makeup she did made me look very very beautiful. I received sooooo may compliments from people. My nephew who is only 7 years of age told my mom that “Bua looks like actresses in movies”, my husband had the widest smile as I walked towards him n the most cherished of all was the compliment my mum-in-law gave me, she said I was looking like a “goddess”…….this was all bcoz of the makeup Vidya did. I definitely recommend her.

Hey Girls,

I am booking Aakriti Kochar for my wedding functions. I got in touch with a lot of makeup artists after reading this blog and met quite a few as well. In my opinion, her work is subtle. Something I gather from these blogs that all of us are looking for. I am definitely booking her. I believe you should all look at her page on facebook for pictures : aakriti kochar makeup , and meet her too as one of the choices for wedding makeup artists. Rest you meet and decide.

Hi all,

I don’t have much idea about Delhi (and makeup in general), and my wedding will be in Noida. I was googling for hair & make-up artists in Delhi NCR and I came this website.

I’m looking for a subtle, elegant makeup under 10k and a basic hairstyle that sustains over several hours. Also, I would like the person to come to the venue to do the makeup & hair. After seeing the various artiste’s websites and their charges, it seems that my best bet is to book a junior or senior artiste who works for someone reputed.

Do you ladies have any suggestions / recommendations?
Looking forward to your comments. Thanks in advance!

With so many artists, veterans and freelancers it is becoming difficult to choose one from. I want my MUA to travel to the location (within delhi)and my budget is between 15-20 k. I have heard of a few names like Urvashi, Simran Kalra and Puja Taluja…. any feedback on these names??
Also, which according to you is a better makeup technique- Airbrush or regular? As airbrushing is becoming popular by the day, is there a lot of difference in the final finish(look and feel)

Simply shut your eyes and book Chandni Singh . She is in New Friends colony with a salon so beautiful & staff so attentive.

I would recommend Susan from PLUM Salon,GK . She really does an amazing job and I was very much satisfied with her work during my Wedding last year in December . And she is one of the more affordable ones in Delhi .

I got my make-up & hair done from Chandni Singh for my engagement & wedding in May 2013. And mark my words, she made me look fabulous and stunning on both the days. Being the bride I was definitely at the center of attention but her artistry made sure that nobody could take their eyes off me.
When I was searching for a make-up artist in Delhi on the internet, I found her website. I saw a few pictures of her work on her website, called her up to fix an appointment for a trial and when I met her, I knew she was ‘it’ without even taking a trial. I did not check with any other make-up artists in delhi after my meeting with her. She heard me out completely and I booked her then & there.
She is one talented artist. She is very sweet, friendly & cooperative. She doesn’t make an attempt to hide anyone’s beauty behind heaps of make-up. In fact, she brings out one’s beauty with her make-up which not many artists can do.

I have seen the work of many make-up artists and somehow they make a bride look like a ‘Rangoli’ on her wedding day. But Chandni is class apart. Her make-up is subtle & elegant. The hairstyles she does always always suit the bride’s face & goes with her attire.
The number of compliments I received on both the days made my skin glow even more on my special days. :)
After getting make-up done from her, I am never going to any other artist for any occasion. That’s for sure!

Hey Everyone,

I read Mehek’s blog and tried Vidya Tikari for my Roka, Shalini Singh for Sagan and Chandni Singh for Wedding function(s). I was little let down by Shalini’s work. I felt I was looking much more pretty on my other two functions. Chandni and Vidya did great work and I was happy with my make up done by them. Chandni has a more a subtle style and she provides a very personalized attention. She understands what you are looking out for and works accordingly. The problem with this is that many times we may not know what may look best on us. After all we are not used to looking bridal :). So if you know what exactly you are looking out for definitely go for Chandni. Vidya and her Assistants follow a more typical approach where in you are provided with catalogs/magazines to choose hair styles, hair accessories, bindis, hair wash etc.. One may also get lucky but getting a hair style change if you are not happy with the one that is already done. I never took any make up trials so I didn’t had much idea what look I exactly wanted so if that is the case then may be one can try a more typical (factory like, as someone said) for a smaller function and then go for a more sophisticated/personalized make up artist subsequently.

Great website. Met Shallu Chandla through this and really happy with the experience. I was looking for somebody to do my makeup for the most important day of my life. I could not believe the way the entire experienced turned out to be. I knew I will look nice on the D day but the way she transformed me was amazing. Not only people appreciated me ……which anybody would do to a bride to make her feel nice but when they were checking on who has done the makeup I could make out they are honest in their opinion. Thanks Shallu.
Checkout her work on http://www.shalluchandla.in

Great website. Though, the information provided here didn’t do any good to me. I hired Chandni singh for my wedding which was held on Oct.2013. She shattered my dream of looking Fab on my D’Day. She made me cakey and all my natural features went away. I was looking completely different of what i am.

My memorable moment got ruined bcoz i followed others opinion. So, i would suggest every to-be-bride to experience yourself rather than chasing the world.

Hi there. WELL I have gone through my list time & again of all the brides/ clients i got dressed in october & your name, Shruti Bhatia, does not figure anywhere. This is a fake review. I challenge her to present images of the same. ms Bhatia incase you thought I would be clueless about you, pls note I handle my appointment diary myself & speak to all clients personally.

Hi Mehak/All

I need someone for engagement/wedding makeup for Feb 14. The event will be in Jaipur therefore I am struggling to find some one there. My budget is around 20k for each function so its also difficult to find some one who is willing to travel.

Any ideas? I am looking for someone who can really focus on the eyesm give me an arabic style look with the flick. The issue is finding someone who does it very neatly. I want the rest of my face to look very natural and radiant.

Thanks
Pragati

Hi Mehak!
Congratulations (belated) on your wedding and this amazing blog!! I love it !! This blog might just save me from becoming a BrideZilla hahah! :P My engagement ceremony is in Jan and I have been trying to finalize a makeup artist.. (I don’t live in India -but I used to).
I went through the extensive list of all these artists..and I can’t seem to pick one. I actually like KritiDs’s work (pictures). Does anyone here have any reviews what so ever?

She recently even won an award for Best creativity in Bridal makeup category from Karishma Kapoor.

Also, some of you mentioned that she travels to the location.. are you sure about that?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a ton gorgeous ladies :D :D !!

Hello everyone

Its a wonderful platform to take care of all your queries related to your wedding day look.My wedding was on 12 th december … it helped me in finding the best.For everyone who is still on with their search and if you are in delhi /ncr then dont think about distance from the venue n all … just go n book chandni singh for the D day … she is simply the best … if you know what you want or even if you dont, she understand your personality type n taste n does it accordingly … for me it was awsome,she made the day special…. go for it girls. All the best :)

Hii PRAGATI,
And Everyone..:-)

Here I am sharing my experience with you as I am not from Delhi and I was looking for a makeup Artist who can travel to my Wedding venue at Jaipur. I booked Poonam Rawat for my Engagement function by leads I found here only. though It was risk to block someone like this but by the Grace of GOD I am lucky and found AMAZINNGG Result by her. I am thankful to mehak as well who create this wonderful blog to help people who are particulate about their Bridal Look. Thank you Poonam :-) I would like to take your services again in my wedding too.

I think there are already quite a few good reviews about Chandni Singh here & mine is another positive feedback. Totally loved my bridal session with her. I have a problem skin like a really dark forehead & lip area & I think she covered it brilliantly. Another thing that totally got me is her punctuality,I was a morning bride & she was there dot 6am. Her salon was impressive, big ,clean & an extremely attentive staff.

Hi ,

Had a wonderful experience with about faces (which is not really expensive when it comes to bridal ) but the best part is about their dedication and worth of money speciallly for that BIG DAY , i got married dec 2013 and yes they really made it one of the INDEED best looks , they make up lasted for good 10 hours or more , you could reach out to Shanu : 09999688503 , or richa @9811728585 atleast i can assure they are better than any of the salons in delhi and best part is they come home and do it and not a rush rush things with other brands in the market

Hi everyone,

Firstly, thankyou for updating all the info…this blog is really beneficial for ppl looking for best MUA.
I just got married on 14th Feb, i booked Shallu Chandla (got lead from this blog) for my wedding & pre-wedding functions, she did absolutely FABULOUS job…she made me look stunning yet natural. she understand your needs & does her work accordingly, she is sweet, friendly and provides 100% personal attention. I got countless compliments for my makeup & hairstyle that she did. I would recommend Shallu to all who are looking for elegant & natural makeup. She is very reasonable and comes to your venue….. I just loved her work, would never go to any other MUA.

Thanks
