Meet the bridal make up artist SHEILA ARVIND !
Makeup makeup makeup ! If you think picking your wedding saree/lehenga and jewellery is hard, wait till you have to decide on wedding make up artist! With so many talented artists around the city, you have to be extra patient and not jump at the first artist you find. The most important thing that you have to look for in a wedding MUA is that they should be able to work on you depending on your face structure, the dress, the kind of ceremony and the also depending on how many hours the make up should last.
From among the many many talented artists, this weekend we are going to introduce you to the very talented, namma chennai MUA SHEILA ARVIND ! 😀
I know that is has been long since we did a vendor post, so here we go ! SHEILA ARVIND of KHOLS AND BLUSHES is the founder of KholsAndBlushes and also a beauty blogger. This chennai based make up artist is self trained like many talented artists.
In her words, “My love for makeup bloomed when I started writing for my beauty blog KohlsandBlushesMakeup.com and I dint stop there, I wanted to be a part of the makeup world more than anything else. That is when I quit my full time job as a Image permissions project manager and started off as a self taught makeup artist. I attended a makeup workshop when I started off and gained more knowledge about makeup to better my work, so I constantly started updating myself with the latest techniques and products in the beauty world.
I am happy that today I am an identified makeup artist in Chennai. I update myself constantly on brands and change my preferences from time to time and make sure that the best makeup products and techniques are used in my work. Brands like holy grail, Becca, Smashbox, Tarte Cosmetics, Kat Von D, Too faced cosmetics, The balm, Laura Mercier, Stila, MAC, NARS, Anastasia Beverly Hills, BOBBI BROWN, BENEFIT Cosmetics, Urban Decay, Makeup Forever, Lancome, Gerard Cosmetics, Sigma Beauty, Inglot etc are the ones that I constantly use on my clients “
Her studio is located at Aminjikarai but provides out station services as well and has worked with over 50 brides in the past year alone !
When asked about her favourite look she said, “I have always loved doing smoky eyes with flawless skin and finishing it off with a nude lip. This look compliments almost all the eye shapes and one could always decrease or increase the intensity of the eye and lip according to the event.”
She also proudly added that, “I make sure that even the most full coverage makeup does not look too gaudy. I can make it look like your own skin, not like you wore a mask of makeup. I believe that if you get the base right then automatically the work on top is going to look fabulous.”
Like most of the make up artists her services include hairstyling and saree draping as well.
And the best part is, Sheila does the hair styling herself ! Her hairstyling technique is unique and works on the brides hair to compliment the their face structure.
For bridal makeup sheila charges INR 20,000 if the wedding is in chennai and extra for out station weddings . For the bridesmaids the charge would range from 7000 to 10000 depending on their requirement.
She offers a paid trial before your big day. 😀
Is your big day around the corner ? Weddings in gloomy seasons need bright colours and I’m sure Sheila will help you pick the best look for you this wedding season ! What are you waiting for?! Get calling brides to be ! 😀
