Best Bridal Makeup Artist in Hyderabad

Remember last year, when a clueless delhi girl (aka me) was running helter skelter around Hyderabad trying to find a Bridal Makeup Artist in Hyderabad that could match the talents of the Delhi ones?? Well that girl , armed with 1 year full of research, sessions of gossiping with Hyderabad ladies and having experienced tons of these artists before hand is now ready with her list of the  Bridal Makeup Artists in Hyderabad. With my SIL’s wedding coming up, we shall be paying some of these a visit  again and if you are tuned to the SIL’s Bridal Files you will know what is going on in that front

You can now find all our favourite picks from Hyderbad along with prices and reviews and their work on (our new wedding website)

Tamanna Rooz:  Tamanna Rooz may not be a name you have heard of before, but according to me, she is probably one of the best Hyderabad has to offer.  We added her to our Wed ME Good recommended makeup artist list right away. Makeup that is modern, simple, elegant and yet still Bridal without the usual bling bling- im cursing myself  for not having found her for my own wedding. She is affordable too, and her style transitions between north indian and south indian so its not very specific. For people like me, a north Indian getting married in Hyderabad, she would have been perfect.

Contact : See her work and contact info on Wed Me Good here

Price: I think around 25k for bridal. 

 Seros by Edward and Zing: Subtle, natural style makeup- again very very good specially if you are a south Indian Bride for sure. A lot of really pretty, fresh South Indian brides -perfect for subtle makeup for morning weddings.

Contact: View their profile and prices on WMG

Price: 15000 for Zing, and 25,000 for Edward


Prashant Makeup Artist: I am so glad to have discovered prashants work. With  a depth of knowledge of the south indian bride, his makeup is polished, subtle and understated . The elaborate hair do’s with the natural soft tones of makeup are exactly what I was looking for

Contact: View profile and prices on wedmegood

Sara at Blush Salon: More affordable than a lot of other makeup artists, and one whose work is beautiful. Subtle, polished and creative with her looks without going OTT. She did one of the brides in Wed Me Good- Sindhura whose makeup was absolutely stunning. Just contoured eyes and pink lips for mehendi, and soft and simple peachy pink makeup for the morning wedding

Contact: Please google her for wedmegood link

Tanuja- Bubbles Salon: Tanuja from Bubbles Salon is another name heard in the circuits and she is supposed to be absolutely fabulous. I have seen some Tanuja brides and i think they look lovely- bridal, polished, beautiful and not OTT!  She was actually my  first choice during my wedding in Hyderabad, but she was pregnant at the time and her due date was only a week after my wedding. I couldnt risk having her go into labour while starting to apply my eyeshadow (Can you imagine- your MUA’s water breaking with one eye done!!!) She is slightly expensive though!

Contact:Bubbles Hair & Beauty Salon in Jubilee Hills
Price: I think around 20K for bridal

Sachin : Sachin is a name i heard over and over again in Hyderabad as being one of the makeup artists to the stars! His prices are very expensive (in excess of 30K i think) and he is supposed to be THE BEST makeup artist in Hyderabad, and his work is definitely really good, if you can afford it .

Contact: None now, check back later will update if i find

Price: Super Expensive

Doris (Doris Salon Secunderabad): Dorris was my makeup artist, and  i think she did a really good job for my engagement atleast. The wedding, i think went a little over board but honestly from the kind of trials i had in Hyderabad- she was a major saving grace. The one thing Dorris does VERY well, is actually hair. For hair, i think she is one of the best stylists i know period- not just in Hyderabad, but in any city iv travelled to. She comes up with ideas and suggestions and she has these pretty hair accessories as well!!! Her rates are reasonable and she travels to your hotel or preferred location. Her parlour is slightly shady and very non fancy looking i admit-which is what gave me apprehensions in the beginning  but she does do a good job.

Contact: 5 ,Vaishnavi Laxmi Estates Himayat Nagar ,Kharkhana, Secunderabad

Price: Rs 12000/- Per event

Annie from Lakme Salon Himayat Nagar: If you are having a morning wedding and want a basic, simple look- specially South Indian Style then Annie is another one iv been recommended. She does do Simple, Basic makeup so those of you with the slightly more glitzy taste my pass up.

Contact:  Lakme Salon Shop No. G-4, A & M Trade Centre,3-6-561, Himayat Nagar, Hyderabad – 50002

Price: Standard Lakme rates

Saloni rathore July 24, 2013 at 2:16 am

Hey mehak,
I love love love your blog! Even I’m from Delhi (recently moved to hyd after Saadi), so I was in the same boat last year….. I was suggested this makeup artist called prashant ( info on fb prashant makeup artist)…… By my designer …. And he’s sooooo good …..please review him he’s super affordable under 7k for makeup …. And he does a phenomenal job ….very natural looking makeup…. However he’s not the best with hair so I would recommend him for makeup only….. He does for shoots and films…. That’s how the designer recommended …… Oh speaking of the designer….. You have to check her out….. Fairly new on the scene her names Nataasha munnangi… She has this cute studio on rd no 1 banjara hills….. She’s affordable and sooooo good …..not much info on her fb ….. But her stores amazing deinetly worth checking out …..:)

Hi Mehak!!

Can you please suggest some MUA’s in Bangalore as well….I have no clue and need to get a start of wedding preps :D
Thank you


Sindhu July 25, 2013 at 10:27 am

Oh man! I wish this post happened way back in January. :P


Sindhu July 25, 2013 at 11:03 am

Chennai: There is a lady Sunita singh who does a fantastic job, particularly for south indian brides. she is relatively expensive but i hired her assistant, (had her come down to hyd, where I live) who honestly, i loved as well.

Bangalore: I hear Sabrina suhail is good. She charges around 15k. She was booked for the date I wanted, so i’m hiring someone else. will review once it’s over.

Hyderabad: Sara owns a parlour in nampally but comes to the location on the day of. Heard about her from a few friends. I was pretty happy with the trial so booked her for the pre wedding functions. She is super friendly and easy to deal with. on the day of, I hired someone else. His name is sandy. Have not had a trial but i saw his work on a friend and loved it. His style is more fashion than traditional, but that was what I was going for on that day anyway. He is more expensive than I would have budgeted for, but I guess you get what you pay for. He is pretty friendly too, and so far, pretty approachable. will review after the wedding.

The mac artists are pretty good too, but then you need separate hair stylist.


mehak July 25, 2013 at 11:48 am

Thanks for the help sindhura!


Sindhura Talluri July 30, 2013 at 12:12 am

You’re welcome. :)


Supria July 25, 2013 at 2:16 pm

Sindhu, can you pass on the contact details for Sunita singh please?

For my reception I had makeup done by Nithya from the Naturals bridal studio in Khader Nawaz khan road, she seemed ok at first but with time my hair do started coming off and my sari was not pinned up properly which started falling off too :P

I have heard from friends that Anoushka salon in T. Nagar do a great job with airbrush makeup and the green trends in Mogappair are pretty good too.


Sindhura Talluri July 30, 2013 at 12:10 am

Hi Supria. Sunita singh 9962797336


Mallika July 25, 2013 at 8:24 pm

Thank you Sindhu!! :D very helpful


Sindhura Talluri July 30, 2013 at 12:07 am

You’re welcome!


aisha September 14, 2013 at 12:39 pm

sindhu ! plz give is more details about sara..wer exactly is her parlour at nampally ? would love visiting ! as der are very fw options in hyd :(
plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz help


Sindhura September 27, 2013 at 9:44 am

9849432810 thats sarah’s number. She charges 9500 for the wedding and 6500-8500 for the other events depending on what style you want. 3500 for mother/sister/aunt/friend of bride. I was really really surprised since she did a really good job for that price. There are a few others who do just as well but charge well above 15k. Also i just sat back and gave her a pic of what i wanted and it turned out pretty close.
On the day of the wedding i had makeup done twice. Once for the pre wedding reception and once for the late night/early morn muhurat since i needed a complete change of style. Reception was done by sandy. Ultimately it turned out really good but i had to hold a hand mirror and keep telling him where he missed patches of foundation and where i could see scars through. He also did a very patchy job at first. So glad i had that mirror. At 20k, i would expect a lot better. At the end it turned out fine so i didnt freak out as much.


Neha July 25, 2013 at 11:18 am

Hi! I just came across your blog when I was doing a google search on Hyderabadi make up artists. This post makes me feel so much better about a wedding in Hyderabad! I live in US, and there are amazing desi bridal MUA’s here. Unfortunately my wedding is taking place in Hyd :( I never thought Hyd would have a makeup artist anything close to the ones in US. But just checked out Tamanna’s page and she is not bad at all!

Thanks :-)


Natasha September 30, 2013 at 4:27 pm

Pls share Kavita’s number


Gayathri October 5, 2013 at 8:54 am

Vijayawadabride October 9, 2013 at 4:52 am

Hi Mehak,

Your blog is super good and i loved it. I booked shilpa jains by seeing her name specified in your blog. But unfortunately she dropped today saying that she cant travel to Guntur(place where my engagement and wedding is held) and returned the advance. But I cant blame her its all because of telangana agitation going on. So I am looking for good bridal makeup artists preferably locals in Vijayawada or Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. Can you help me by suggesting one?

Thank you in advance,

Deepa September 7, 2014 at 2:04 am

Hi, I have come across a very good Makeup Artisit in Hyderabad, who has just moved in Hyd from Mumbai. I have got my Wedding Makeup Done with in my budget. I really liked the work, it was very natural and not too flashy with best products. I definitely recommend her work for you. Check her website and a Facebook link.
Facebook link: Swatimakeovers


Ayesha November 12, 2014 at 5:32 pm

I’m from US and I visited Hyderabad for my wedding last month, I got my makeup done my Aliya Baig makeup artist.
I’m taking out time to write this coz she is the best person available for this job right now, have heard of many other big wigs in the same industry too but haven’t found any one as accommodating as Aliya is! She was like a fairy god mother to me…my savior, since I been born and brought up in the US I have a very pale skin and blemishes, she did a flawless job and I was glowing without any marks and evry single person complemented for my makeup and it looked absolutely stunning in pictures! I would give her 5***** :)


mehak November 13, 2014 at 5:02 pm

Do let us know her details!


Ayesha November 26, 2014 at 5:03 pm

Sure…her email is : , I got to know about her from her Instagram Id: @makeupByAliyaBaig, hope it helps :)


Tobewed December 27, 2014 at 11:03 pm

All the costs listed here are atleast off by 10000 Rs.
I guess make up is in boom now.. so everyone is saying atlest 30000 or more !!


fairy January 2, 2015 at 11:16 pm

Hey guyz….gud info collected here on this blog…but anybody can plz tell me abt china parlour in banjara hills… it gud and worth????


Saleha March 3, 2015 at 5:31 pm

One of the worst in Hyderabad is ‘that’ parlour painting faces with unhygienic brushes and environment or fingers directly with low quality makeup products. When I was getting married I had my friends recommend me that too. My sister went to get her hair done there and there were 20 brides sitting and she literally walked out without letting them do it after paying for it it was so crowded. I attended another friend’s wedding and literally had to wipe the makeup with the tissue, even I can do better makeup than that. I’m sorry but the hype of many parlours boils my blood.
This list is a great compilation by Mehak but I had to search for another artist in my budget with quality. I have had the opportunity to get Ayesha AK for my wedding , gosh her brush work is believable and I didn’t look like someone else but myself but more beautiful. She made my big day so peaceful and just about me. Worth every penny!

Sure you can get ready in a parlour on your day but the experience you get from an artist is something to treasure for a lifetime.


Ayesha AK April 1, 2015 at 2:28 am

Thank you so much for taking your time to leave a feedback Saleha!

It is not just making your day, but it makes my day as well. The moment I stop for a second, step back to see how gorgeous you all look is what makes my day and I fall in love with my job all over again.

Best Regards,
Ayesha AK
Makeup Artist & Stylist


Hania September 7, 2015 at 4:41 am

Hey saleha good to here you looked all.natural and complete you. I have gone through so many sites. Makeup artist these days completely change your face to the extent that either people don’t recognize you on your wedding day and start commenting huh! Tons of makeup on her face or your hubby won’t recognuze you the next day of your wedding. I so don’t wanna end up that way. Plus the charges these days are abv 15k for a single day.
And hyderabadi wedding just don’t finsih off with one function..
Can you tell me how was your experience with ayesha khan? Was her charges in your budget?You booked her for a singleday or reception, mehndi function too. How much did she charge.
I have probably a year time. So, I don’t wanna contact her just for details.


Roshna Nargis March 18, 2015 at 8:35 pm

Surprised to see Aliya Baig excluded from the list! She’s fab and one of the best. We had almost zeroed in on Tamanna for my sister’s wedding, however after a couple of egoistic (from her side) conversations with her coupled with her tendency to repeat the same look over we thought we have to scout for some fresh blood! We happen to see Aliya’s Insta Account and booked her for my sister’s wedding and for myself (general party makeup). She is a magician with the airbrush! Her studio is impeccable and so is her talent. Definitely the best artist if you are looking for pakistani makeup. I’ve booked her for my wedding in July ’15 and I’m already so so excited!

Mehak – This article needs a refresher for sure.


Lisa March 24, 2015 at 1:51 pm

Sandy is just awesome! Guess you have missed him in ur list. He has done for my wedding and reception and was just great.
