What made you want to become a makeup artist?
My passion. One day I just decided that I want to live by what I love to do so I took the step… and voila here I am today.

What do you love about what you do?
Everything! From the very beginning like meeting people, understanding their needs, transforming them… gorgeous or ugly by makeup, I love it all.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get inspiration from day to day life. It could be anything… my surroundings, people, nature, objects, etc.

Brand favourite…
I love Himalaya Products. I buy in good numbers while travelling and now even my foreign friends love it! In makeup I can’t decide on just any one product.

One product you can’t work without…
I keep experimenting. I can skip others but Giffarine is a must for me wherever I go.

Top makeup tips
Right makeup base and blending makeup well is very important but most importantly understand one’s desire or need.
