Vendor Review: MUA Chandni Singh

  1. Have heard a lot about Chandni and good to ready your review.

    About the makeup – I totally agree. The face colour does look darker than your usual shade, except in the last picture. Was it the lighting of the room?

    The draping looks clean 🙂 And everything else about the makeup is quite nice.

    Here’s my question – From what I know she charges over 20k for makeup for non-brides as well. Did you find it worth it? I, for one, am not a fan of spending exorbitantly for makeup and hair. But what the heck if it’s worth it on some occasions, right? 🙂


  2. nice one Shinjini.. Chandni Singh is definitely the best from what I hear.. I wish to get my bridal makeup done from her 😐 😛
    and about the color of your skin in these pics, I think the shade of the bronzer is a shade darker than what it should have been.. guess she tried to match it with your tan.. and umm.. there’s too much contouring around the forehead… but then you look perfectly natural in the last pic.. professional makeup is done keeping in mind the fact that the lighting at the venue is going to be a lot more harsh than in the salon, so yeah, that could be the reason..
    you look pretty as always! :*

    oops! such a long rant! 😛


    1. Thanks Ritu! I know, kuchh toh gadbad hai, just can’t pin point what. Somebody on Facebook said it might be because the foundation oxidised and therefore turned a shade darker after I left the salon. But I guess Chandni will be the best person to answer this anyway.


      1. Hi

        Could you also suggest me a good MUA in the range from 6-7 K for wedding & engagement ceremonies.



  3. More than the make-up, I like your saree! 🙂 So pretty. Where’s it from?
    Your make-up does look nice, and I especially like the eye make-up with the liner and kajal. The base colour appears to be a little dark, compared to the neck, but then again, overall it looks nice.

    And yes, I totally agree with you on the washroom! It’s such a mood-spoiler to use dirty washrooms, so hygienic surroundings play an essential part in a salon’s set-up.


  4. First of all I really like your saree….. and I have been following your blog since you started it and your blog is one of blogs that give me inspiration to start my own blog….. I just love your blog……. your saree is so preety but your lehenga outfit from your reception is to die for…… so I am glad that you choose lehenga over this saree…..
    You are looking lovely I really like your eye makeup and you are right chandni singh is queen of wedding makeup.


  5. You look gorgeous!
    and the same thing happened to me when i got my makeup done from other salon,some lakme one.
    The reason is that 1-2 shades lighter should be used on the skin,Because the foundation gets oxidized after some while ,Most probably Mac foundation.

    I have started using 2 shades lighter foundation on me and after a while it looks perfect on me.


  6. Hi Chandni!

    I like your photos.
    You look cute!!
    The foundation problem is because the foundation usually oxidizes on oily skins.(I think you have oily skin.) the under eye makeup is very professionly blended and also the lip color coplimented well.

    It seems you have a good height. If so, why don’t you take chance in modeling.(just my opinion.)
    You have everything that a modle needs, look,figure, features, and height.


  7. Hi!
    Pretty u look 🙂 n thanks for the post!
    I wanted to know which of her senior artists is the best? Since she doesn’t travel out stations for bridals but her senior artists do…
    So..any one who u think can do a good job from her team?


  8. Hi!
    Thanks for the awesome review and u definitely look pretty 🙂
    I was wondering if u can tell me who amongst her senior artists is the best? Since she doesnt travel out stations for bridals but her team members do! Any help would be highly appreciated! Thanks 🙂


  9. Hi..I follow your blog pretty much & went to Chandni Singh for my bridal as well as she came recommended from almost everyone, blogs, friends & work colleagues. I have extreme problem skin as in my my forhead and lip area is almost 3 shades darker than the rest of my face. I feel she did a fantastic job as my skin looked pretty much even and that too on the fairer side & my foundation did not turn grey one bit. I had gone to Looks sector 18, Noida for my pre wedding function & I look like a grey doll. Gross is the word.. She has an eye for detail which is amazing . When I was stepping out she just stopped me & made her staff re fix the dupatta at the back, I feel that goes to say a lot of a person. Also I was a morning bride and she was there dot on time- 6am which again shows how big a professional she is.

    Also when i look at your images here the 1st, 2nd & 4th image look the same & just the 3rd image looks relatively dark ( & i guess they have all been clicked around the same time) so i guess it could just be bad lighting. Just a thought.

    Would i go back to her? Hell yes:)


  10. I had taken a makeup course from Chandni Singh before my wedding because I hadn’t booked a MUA even two months before the event and nobody was available and I really feared that I would have to end up doing my own makeup. Chandni was wonderful and didn’t hold back a bit while teaching me how to do my makeup, what products to use and which specific brand and shades of each product would suit me best- it was incredible. However, even I felt that the foundation she used on me was too dark, but she had told me beforehand that she is a fan of tan look.


    1. Ah, I guess she is a fan of the tan look then 🙂 I guess a client can always tell her they would prefer a not so tan look? And good to see you in the blogosphere! Where have you disappeared?!


  11. Hi Delhibride, (referring as this, coz I don’t know your name),

    But here’s a little query about Chandini Singh’s make up. Help me with the below.

    Doubt 1: Are Chandni Singh studio make up artist are as good as ‘her’.
    Doubt 2: I don’t know, but some other MUA artist put this seed in my head and now I’m confused. That Chandni is really good with Fashion make up and relatively not that great with Bridal or Party Make up, because she specializes in giving dramatic eyes and drama look.. And that’s not which looks good in every party or a wedding.

    Hope you could clear this air. As i’m very confused to whom to book for a wedding happening at my place.


    1. Hi although you have sought the advice of thedelhibride, I thought I will interject and give my inputs for whatever they are worth:
      – I went to Chandni Singh for a bridal makeup course since I seriously doubted that given my delay in engaging a MUA for my wedding, whether I would at all finally find a suitable person since CS was also not available for my wedding date and she was my first choice given her reputation ( I finally did – Aakriti Kochchar).
      – I loved CS as a person and for her generosity in teaching me in such detail, but I thought all the looks she taught me were extremely modellish, very dark eyes and darker bronzed/tanned skin) which was not what I wanted for my wedding personally, though am sure lots of other brides would be perfectly happy with the look.
      – finally I got Aakriti Kochchar both for my engagement and wedding and was very happy with her work, though I wished she had put a little less color on my lips on my wedding day, but she told me specifically that she is doing that so that the wedding pics come out fabulously – and they did.
      Hope my little input helped.


      1. Hi strawberrypulp,

        That’s what I’m equally concerned about. Do you know any other studios or freelance make up artist in delhi/noida for party makeup. Then do reply. Thanks 🙂


  12. Hey shinjini,

    I know I’m about 2 years late🙈 but only just got into this bridal makeup research since I’m getting married in Dec 😊
    Thanks for such amazing reviews and bloggs which I absolutely love! You’ve made my life a billion times easier coz I honestly had no clue where to start from, not living in India doesn’t make it any easier 😕

    Absolutely love your makeup and the sari too. I’m pretty sure I want to book Chandni for the D – day, thanks to your amazing review 😊
    Just one quick question, is there much of a difference between her and the senior MUA? Just in case she’s already booked.

    Thanks again,
