Wake up to Makeup


Most people find her to be reserved but when they get to know her, Deena Tuladhar is an easy going and down to earth person. Though she never chose to become a makeup artist, she believes destiny led her to this career and now she is enjoying every bit of it.

What made you want to become a makeup artist?
I have always loved trying new makeup products and experimenting with different looks. I just never thought I would make a career out of it. Time and circumstances led me here and I couldn’t be more grateful. I feel this profession is perfect for me since it allows me creativity and complements my interest in fashion and glamour.

What do you love about what you do?
The favourite part of my work is meeting new clients. Everyone has unique facial features and I enjoy working with the client to make sure that their request and my creative vision come together to put together a look they love. It is so empowering to know that the work I do can help someone else feel good about how they look. And of course, being able to test new products and try new brands is always exciting.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
Everywhere! If I see a piece of art and the colours catch my eye, I’ll take a picture of it and use it for my next idea. Social media is also a great tool to draw inspiration from. There are a few makeup artists who I think are amazing at what they do.

Product or brand favourite
All my products are a mix of different brands from Too Faced to Chanel to Huda Beauty, it is impossible to name a single favourite.

One product you can’t work without
Eyeliner. I wear it almost every day and the one that works best for me is Liquid Last by Mac. It has been my holy grail for the last 10 years. I don’t know what I’d do if they ever decide to discontinue it.

Top makeup tips
Rule no. 1 :Never go to bed with make up on. Skin care is very important, so make sure you are taking care of your skin by using the right products catered to your skin type. When it comes to makeup, if there is a certain look you want to experiment with, go for it. You are your best model and know what looks flatter your features the most.
