Queries on Makeup Artists

I have been getting a lot of queries recently from young brides to be on who to choose for their makeup on the most important day of their lives!

Ambika Pillai
Vidya Tikari
Susan of Plum Salon seem to be the popular choices for the brides getting married in Delhi!

Well since I have had personal experience at Ambika Pillai (senior artist) and Plum (Junior and Senior Artist)...I am leaning towards Plum. I myself got ready at Plum for my Shagun and Wedding Day and was totally satisfied with the jobs done by them.

But then again...I advise you to meet your makeup artist ahead in time and discuss your colours, looks, hairstyle ideas etc with them. If you can afford to get your make up done from Ambika, Susan, Vidya Themselves instead of the senior junior artists then nothing like it!. It is very important for you to know how you wish to look on your weding day and then try an effectively communicate that to the makeup artist.
Collect pictures and take printouts if you can!

All the best


  1. Ambika did my make up too..ten years ago :-)

  2. Lol! Reminded me of my wedding, eight years back. The make-up artist didn't turn up. So I worked on my face, and guess what, it wasn't bad at all.

    But yes, it's always good to be clear about how one wants to look on their special day.
