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. A lot has changed since then and 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. You can view the list here- Bridal Makeup Artists in Delhi . 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.I am also working on an updated post with what i feel about each of those artists and will update this page when its done.
For those willing to spend more than Rs 20,000 per function on Bridal Makeup:
- Chandni singh Bridal Makeup
- Anu Kaushik
- 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
- 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.

- 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

- Aakriti Kochhar
I discovered Aakriti after brides wrote in to me saying about the great work she was doing. I took one look at her stuff and she really did do a fab job on a lot of brides! I love that her brides look ‘bridal’ but not overdone ! Know what I mean?
Price: Rs 20,000 for Bridal

- 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

Price : Rs 15000
- 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.

- Sakshi Sagar
You dont get too many good makeup artists charging less than 10k these days 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
- Michele Montez
If you like makeup to be soft, subtle and elegant, look no further than Michele Montez. She is a very talented Makeup artist, relatively new on the Delhi Scene as compared to the heavyweights who exist currently. Her style of makeup is soft and pretty-perfect for engagements, cocktails , receptions and if you want to be a subtle bride then even for bridals. Some girls might find her style a bit too subtle and understated for bridal, but overall she makes every bride look good and thats what matters. She is also the relatively affordable one in Delhi
Price: 11000/- for Bridal, 9000/- for Engagement etc
