Wake up to Makeup


For Itchya Karki, makeup was the thing that brought her passion and career together. Managing Director of The Beauty Bar Spa and Salon, she has been trained and working in Canada as a medical aesthetician for some years. She later decided to bring her skills back home and recently started The Beauty Bar.

What made you want to become a makeup artist?
I have always been interested in art. The colour play, is so beautiful and inspiring. To me makeup is an art so when I was in Canada and got the opportunity to learn it, I took it!

What do you love about what you do?
The fact that I own my own beauty salon, having to see my vision become reality each and every day and the happiness that I see in my clients face after they are satisfied are the things I love most about what I do.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from everyday things. The seasons, flowers, colours around me. It could be literally anything.

Product or brand favourite
Wow! Tough one! How am I supposed to choose between so many good products! But if I had to, I think Benefit mascara would be my go to favourite product at the moment.

One product you can’t work without
A good, good moisturizer before I start any kind of makeup and of course sun block.

Top makeup tip
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! Makeup can only do so much. The key to amazing makeup is amazing skin first, so invest in a good quality skin care regime.
