Chandni Singh. The most sought-after makeup artist in Delhi. The baap, no wait, Queen of Wedding Makeup. The one who brides want so badly that they will change their wedding date if she’s already booked on theirs (true story! Well, partially!)
Remember the review I did on MUA Shruti Sharma? I had gotten my hair and makeup done by her for my cousin’s Sangeet, which took place this September. My cousin – Rashi – was the bride, and she looked absolutely stunning on both the functions – her Sangeet & Wedding. She’s a natural beauty, and the hair and makeup just added a touch of glamour to it. I asked her to take some time out of her busy B-school schedule (yes, she got married in the middle of her MBA!) and write a review on her MUA – Supriti Batra.
A reader of thedelhibride, Mansi, got engaged this June in New Delhi. She went to Ambika Pillai’s Punjabi Bagh salon to get her engagement hair & makeup done. They charge INR 7,000 for a Junior MUA and INR 12,000 for a Senior MUA (excluding taxes). Mansi chose a Junior Artist, and her experience at the salon was quite good. This is her review of the makeup artist, the hairstylist and Continue reading “Vendor Review: MUA Jr. Artist at Ambika Pillai Punjabi Bagh”
Yet another review by the super helpful, and very pretty bride – Sahiba! All her wedding functions took place at the beautiful Westin Sohna Resort and Spa (Sohna-Gurgaon, not to be confused with the Westin Hotel in Gurgaon). I’ve also been here for a weekend stay with the family last year and I’ll give you my 2 cents on the property at the end of the post. First though, read what the bride had to say, in her review of The Westin Sohna Resort Continue reading “Vendor Review: The Westin Sohna Resort and Spa”
Remember the pretty bride, Sahiba, who shared pictures and details of her gorgeous wedding outfits with us recently? If you hadn’t noticed already, the decor at her wedding was equally fabulous. I got you plenty of pictures of the decor from all her functions, and also managed to get Sahiba to do a quick review of her decorator – Harkrishan Singh of Elements.
“I can’t say enough good things about our decorator! He was so hands on and took care of every litte detail. My mum is into interior design so she’s very picky and he completely blew us away. I showed him things that I liked during his presentations from previous weddings and he really understood our taste and what we were going for each function.”
“For the mehendi, I wanted it to be super colorful and funky so he used churras hanging in the trees and these really vibrant umbrellas for the tables. I told him how I wanted the swing which he made perfectly.” Editor’s note: I am in love with that swing as well! It’s FABULOUS!
You’ve seen the pictures. And I’ve got only positive feedback about my makeup! Then again, do brides ever get negative comments on how they are looking?
I got my Sangeet, Wedding and Reception makeup from Mona at b:blunt, Greater Kailash 2, New Delhi. They charge INR 9,000* for smaller functions, and INR 14,500* for the big ones – if you come to GK2 to get your makeup done. If you want them to travel to your venue, you pay double. *figures and facts true as of October, 2012
