Meet make up artist Rashi Sobti from Delhi!
Rashi has been in the business for two years now, and when we asked her what inspired her to take up make up as a profession, she said” After doing regular jobs for more than ten years just like everyone I wanted to do something on my own. I was an artist in school and did fairly well with painting and drawings. Infact I do have a graduate diploma in commercial arts passed with a first division. But definitely I had never realised the potential of my good drawing hand until I met the man I am in love with!. He encouraged and literally convinced me to go ahead when I was thinking of survival already between 1000 existing makeup artists in Delhi alone. I was so scared to even invest my leftover savings to learn and to build a kit of all those expensive brands. He just didn’t convince me with the stats and my potential that he saw while I was doing my own makeup infront of him one day, but also funded my entire course and my first kit which was not a small amount. Life has changed 360 degrees because of him!”, okay this is just so much awh!!! *love struck*
“I don’t do transformations!. I don’t underestimate a woman’s natural beauty and prove the world that I have transformed her into a fairy because of my makeup. My work only enhances feautures, I keep my skin base work as close as possible to naturally”, it’s refreshing to meet make up artists like this isn’t it?

What kind of make up look do you enjoy the most ?
“Bridal ofcourse , I love seeing how the red lipstick automatically suits every girl on her big day when she would have either ran away from it or found it too loud. The whole magic of red from ruby woo on the lips to the bindi and down till the outfit is a dream. And then ofcourse the bold black smokey eyes, as my friends and regular clients say I am good at!”
Rashi was trained by her dear friend and makeup artist Isha Khanna. In just one year, she has worked with over 50 clients including brides, party make up already and makeup for family members.
