By  | 
Yashika’s background in makeup artistry began years ago when she decided to quit her cushy marketing job and turn to what she loved doing best: makeup. And thus was born one of the top bridal/party makeup artists in Pune! Since its creation 5 years ago, Yashika’s Artistry has been a part of many events big and small. Yashika and her team offer onsite and travelling makeup services for weddings in and around Pune. Find out more about Yashika in this week’s supplier spotlight section..

1) How did you start in this field? Where did you train?

I have always loved makeup and used to try my hand on my family and friends, despite not being trained. After working in the marketing sector for 4 years, I realized that I was not enjoying my work and really wanted to take my love for makeup as a profession. That’s when I took up professional makeup training. I did my first course from a small institute in Pune. Since staring my career, I  have done several makeup and hair courses as there is so much to learn in this industry. One simply has to keep oneself  updated with latest makeup/hair-styling techniques and trends and that’s what I strive for.

2) Please tell our readers about the award you received recently?

I was listed as one of the top 5 makeup artists in Pune by edition.

3) Can you walk us through a typical bridal consultation? How do you approach brides’s specific concerns about skin and hair?

Every bride has different skin and hair type as well as different choices of makeup. So it is very important to first understand what each client wants or is looking for. After that, I endeavor to understand her skin and hair type.  We have a detailed discussion with each bride and try to match her expectations with what we can execute, depending on her skin and hair type. At the same time, we also give suggestions based on new trends and techniques in the field today. Of course, our top priority is their choice and comfort level. I mainly help clients understand their skin and hair type and what will/won’t suit them so that they can use those tips in the future when they do their own makeup. Apart from that, we also counsel brides on their pre-bridal skin care routines so they can prepare for their big day.

4) What are latest trends in wedding makeup for 2017-18 weddings?

Brides these days are very bold but most also prefer pastel colors which are always in vogue. Many brides are seen opting for pink, peachy lehengas. As far as makeup goes, many prefer the contemporary smokey look. Then there are brides who still like to go for traditional looks with dark maroon lehengas and classic hairstyles. Many have started opting for High definition makeup suitable for the HD cameras and an airbrushed look that guarantees flawless skin.

5) What are approximate rates for bridal packages?

Rates for bridal packages start from 12,000 INR for HD and INR 14,000 for airbrush.

6) What products do you use? What are the three tools in your makeup kit that you never leave home without?

I use all high end professional makeup products to name a few: Mac, Makeup Forever, Tarte, ABH, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Too Faced, Becca, Temptu, Benefit and more. The three tools I need are my brushes, a good moisturizer for all skin types (so that the base looks good) and wet wipes to make sure nothing gets messy. I give utmost importance to hygiene and cleanliness while doing makeup.

7) Any advice for brides to be when it comes to selecting a bridal makeup artist?

Always select an artist after detailed discussion with them as to what look you want, what are your problem areas, and so on. An artist who can understand these issues and help you overcome them is the best choice. Always ask for reference pictures of their past clients so you can assess whether they suit your requirements. Never blindly copy trends on the Internet; you can use those pictures as a reference but what looks good online may not always look good on you. So its very important to get a trial done.
