3 key make-up tips

  • For base makeup your face should be clean. The foundation you use should be of good quality and should match your skin tone. Apply primer before using foundation, it will make your makeup last longer. After base make-up, don’t forget tone shedding (highlight and contour)
  • Shape your eyebrows nicely. This will frame your face which will do justice to your entire make-up.
  • Blend your makeup well.

Career as makeup artist

Makeup is my passion. After I completed my make-up training, I used my skills as a volunteer for some time. People liked my work and my network started growing slowly. After that I was called to work for magazines, ads, movies, music videos, shows and beauty pageants. Now I have my own makeup studio ‘Reveal’ at Nag Pokhari. This is the career I’ve chosen and I enjoy my work. I have been in the Nepali glamour field for eight years and it feels like this time passed in a blink.

If there’s just one cosmetic product you could use…

Makeup is a package. One cannot fulfill the package with any single product.

One brand you believe in

There are lots of brands. I try almost all that are available in the market. Every brand has its own specialty. One brand that I believe in and am currently using is Reizvoll. It is good and inexpensive. Products are lab tested, of international quality, and are easily available in the market.
