chat Make-up artist Ayesha Wadiwala on the latest bridal looks
Faces excite her. No matter where she is or what she’s doing, Ayesha Wadiwala is always conjuring up new looks in her mind. “The moment I have thought up a complete look I am restless till I try it out on a model,” she laughs. For somebody who became a make-up artist by accident, Ayesha's client list is rather impressive. It includes actors designers and sportspersons. “It started when one of my close friends was getting married. She asked me to do her bridal make-up. And before I knew it I did 35 bridals in the next few months!” says Ayesha.
Talking about trends, she said, “Today’s Indian bride refuses to have heavy make-up that makes them look artificial on their wedding day.”
Having given more than 250 brides a makeover, she believes bridal make-up is the most challenging. “Some of them are not open to experimenting; some do not want make-up on their face, and there are others who are obsessed with fairness. It’s a task to make them understand that chalky white make-up is not important, what’s important is for the skin to look glowing and healthy.”
