The Best Bridal Makeup Artists in Mumbai : Top 10

by mehak on October 22, 2013

in Bridal Blog, Bridal Makeup, Bridal Makeup Artist Mumbai

So I scouted Delhi for the best ones and gave you my top list over here – Bridal Makeup Artists in Delhi. Then we turned to Hyderabad as my Sister in law was planning her wedding, and gave you our list there. We now move to Mumbai, where there seems to be precious little written about, considering what a big wedding destination that city is (also the city of my SIL’s reception!) ! A lot of these great makeup artists don’t seem to have Facebook pages or websites which made finding them super difficult, so I thank all you real brides from Mumbai who wrote in recommending them! I personally believe that Mumbai has some of the best makeup artists that India has to offer (maybe because its where the glamour industry is). But each of these names are people I would love to get my makeup done from!

Each of these makeup artists come recommended by Brides from Mumbai who have written in to us sharing their photos and experiences. You can view a consolidated list of all the Bridal Makeup Artists I personally recommend along with sample of their work on Wed Me Good.

For those who can pay about 30k and above for Bridal Makeup :-

Ojas Rajani

Ojas Rajani : Probably one of the best known names and definitely quite expensive but if you can afford it, hire Ojas Rajani for turning you into a super stunning diva on your wedding day. She is a makeup artist to Aishwarya Rai and I absolutely love how she keeps her brides looking bridal yet still fun. Some of our Real Brides have been done by Ojas Rajani, and each of them are unique (One even had a modern kitten flick for her wedding). Glowing fresh skin, with heavy dark eyes is her forte!

Price – 50,000

Amrita Sanghavi : If you want to look effortlessly beautiful with makeup that subtly enhances your features, she is the one you should go to. Two brides wrote in to me, almost up in arms about why Amrita was missing from our list. I looked at some of Amrita’s work and was definitely kicking myself for not having put her sooner. Gorgeous and glow-y, her brides look so put together. Also on dusky girls I have seen some makeup artists just ruin it, but Amrita’s brides (specially the duskier ones) look like Indian goddesses! She offers free trials, airbrush makeup services and also travels to the venue.

Price – 40,000

Meghna Bhutani : A name I came across when brides wrote in about her specifically, and after taking a look I know she does do a good job ! She says, “I don’t do typical bridal work but like to combine the bridal traditional look with a more contemporary one. I make sure the bride looks like herself on her wedding day as I do not believe she’ll look recognizable with layers of makeup”

Price – 30,000

For those who can pay about 20k for Bridal Makeup :-

Fatima Soomar

Fatima Soomar : I’ve seen a lot of her brides in person and they are lovely – simple, clean and beautiful. Her makeup style is girly, fresh and youthful ! She’s extremely talented and works to show off your best features. Fatima offers paid trials and also travels to the venue.

Price – 22,000

Kajol R Paswwan : Another well known name in the business, she has a huge number of positive reviews on Wedmegood which is always a good sign. She tries to understand her client’s thoughts and works to highlight their best features.

Price – 25,000

Recinda Martis : Another  name that has made a big mark in the Mumbai bridal makeup scene, but one that needs to be known even more. Definitely one of those talented makeup artists that make a bride look bridal without overdoing the makeup bit ! I absolutely adore her style, the subtle but polished base, the natural tones used and the lovely pops of coral that make her brides look contemporary but still innately Indian.

Price – 25,000

Maya Mehta

Maya R Mehta : Her makeup is subtle and polished without breaking the bank and she is a name you can count on for brides of various different cultures as well. She is so versatile in giving different kinds of looks. Huge fan of her work and once you take one look at her profile you will know why she made it to our list.

Price – 20,000

For those who can pay about 15k for Bridal makeup :-

wmg074

Into Candid Photography

Divya Shetty : A hugely talented makeup artist and one I absolutely recommend to everyone !! She is a great person to be around plus also does some of the most gorgeous, natural but effortlessly pretty makeup. Very current too – no dark maroon lipsticks here ! She is also one of the rare ones who doesn’t double her rates for outstation travel !

Price – 18,000

Aditi Mehra : For the price she charges, Aditi is a superstar ! She understands that new-age brides don’t want over the top makeup looks and successfully adds glow to the skin without going overboard.

Price – 16,000

Shamita Gogia : She believes in the adage – Less is more when it comes to makeup and tries her best to use eco-friendly and cruelty free products as far as possible. LOVE. Totally Recommend. Take a look at her brides and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Price – 18,000

can you do something like this for ahmedabad or jodhpur mehak? or some makeup artists who travel to the wedding destination if paid for travelling?

Ashima October 22, 2013 at 3:01 pm

There are some more names I would recommend for brides in Bombay. They all have Facebook pages and are quite prompt in responding.
Jharna Shah – You can look up her work on Facebook. She has her own studio in Juhu and travels to the location also! She is quite affordable and her make up style is also subtle and natural
Amrita Sanghavi – She is one of the most popular bridal makeup artist in Bombay and her work often gets featured on Wedding Sutra. Her rates are slightly on the higher side but she will definitely make you look like a princess on your D Day.
Cherag Bambboat – He is a celebrity makeup artist and his work is absolutely fantastic. He is extremely popular with the South Bombay brides and is also on the higher side in terms of pricing. But I would definitely recommend him if someone is looking for subtle and elegant make up. His make up is like MAGIC!

Ojas is worth recommending! Have tried and seen his work. Also another dekho is Malika Bhat. Typically, these guys need to be booked a year in advance.

Jaipur is a tough one!
The only MUA I’v read or heard about is Jassi Chhabra in Jaipur. She also runs a salon named Shades a skin & hair care.

FP page: https://www.facebook.com/jassi.chhabra.3

Until Mahek dusn’t come up with a bridal 101 Jaipur, all brides getting married there will have to take along mua’s from other cities. :P

PS: Im in d same rut..will be getting married next year in march in Delhi or Jaipur. Sigh :-/

Hi, the list is great but most of these makeup artists are very expensive to hire. Can you please suggest me a bridal makeup artist for my wedding under 10K range? Any help would be much appreciated.
