Pre wedding shoot makeup, bridal trends and much more

SE - Please tell  ShaadiElephant about your journey as a Makeup  artist .

Ruchi - Like many other teens, I was also passionate for makeup since that time. Makeup fascinated me since at an early age and my love for makeup continued to grow with each passing year. My learning and exploration in makeup world started with YouTube, Web learnings, blogs study, and lots and lots of experiments.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist

Believe me it completely came true for me. Got opportunity to stay and learn in the land of opportunities – US and I started with my focused career pursuit from there. Spent hours and hours over days and weekends in makeup temples – Sephora, MAC, ULTA and others. My international exposure further continued with my journey to Canada and UK.

Post coming back to India, I learned hair styling secrets from Seema V Jerajani. Learning continued with wonderful opportunities to serve patrons from corporate and individual world through different assignments for Bridal, Shoots, Corporate events, and other theme projects.

Journey ongoing……

SE - What are the top  Bridal trends this season ?

Ruchi - Red and Gold colours are all time favourite of Brides but this year their love is noticed towards Blue and Pink colours as well. To compliment the same, eye shadow colours followed the trend.

Besides, I would say glitters and highlighting were the talk of the town this season.

SE - Which products do you  use for Bridal makeup ?

Ruchi - There is no single brand that provides all perfect solution for every skin type. A mix bucket of renowned international brands suffice the needs.

Some of the major brands in my kit are:  Makeup Forever - HD, NARS, KAT VON D, Anastasia Beverly Hill, Urban Decay, Tartee, MAC, Benefit, Two Faced, Stilla etc.

SE – How about makeup for the Pre-wedding shoot?

Ruchi - This is the latest trend of the season!! This gives comfortable time to bride and groom to get ready and have a memorable shoot before the hustle-bustle of marriage starts .

Though it depends on client needs, but most requirements are of soothing, casual and natural make overs. Hair styling is done on the same line with little or no accessories.

SE - What do you love the  most about being a makeup artist ?

Ruchi - Love my job every time I see the delighted expression on my client`s face post the makeover.

SE - What is the  biggest highlight of your career ?
