Great skin is always the best route to good makeup. Less is more in a hot and humid weather. Keep your face matte, as it will get oily. Also, use waterproof products when necessary.
What would you like to say to aspiring make up artists?
Have a good attitude. You’ll meet all kinds of people. Be helpful. And don’t put down other artists. We are all a part of the same industry. Training and experience go a long way, so keep learning.
Gayathri, what inspired you to be a makeup artist?
I love how looking good is such a simple act, and can add volumes of confidence to a woman. I love to see the expression on my client’s face after a makeover session, and hearing them say they never thought they could look so good. I believe every woman can look beautiful.
Awesome. Tell us about your journey to becoming a makeup artist.
It was a natural transition. I went from Fashion Styling, to Wardrobe Styling, and then to Makeup and Hair. Basically, I think I’ve gone the whole cycle in learning how to complete the whole image of a woman, and some men (laughs).
How do you think makeup brings out a woman’s confidence?
Looking good, however simple it is, always adds a feeling of confidence to every woman. It’s simple- A bright lipstick can immediately make someone feel like a million bucks, and a soft nude lip colour can instantly make someone feel put together.
How was your experience working with other #SheensWomen on the recent photoshoots?
Every woman is special in her own way. I loved seeing confident women supporting and helping other women.
