• Indian Bridal Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist

  • Indian women have special challenges to consider when choosing the perfect makeup for a wedding or special occasion. Skin tones can be uneven and the characteristically darker shades of the skin can prove difficult to match with the proper cosmetics, if makeup application is done by unskilled hands.

    Melinda is highly experienced in working with all skin types and tones and understands the challenges Indian women face when it comes to proper makeup application. The techniques used by Melinda for Indian women will vary depending on the occasion, but Indian bridal makeup should be the perfect blend of dramatic and natural.

    Here are some photos from Melinda's recent work:

  • How Melinda Works

    The key to achieving the best Indian wedding makeup results lies in the contouring of the bride's natural features – a process that's often overlooked by makeup artists. Having darker skin can sometimes make the skin tone appear uneven - especially under the eyes or around the chin. Using foundation/concealer shading around the eyes and chin can sometimes cause the skin to appear grey; this simply means that the covering might not be doing its job properly. Melinda can help with color correcting techniques to create a brighter beautiful look.

    Indian Wedding Events

    Indian weddings and pre-wedding ceremonies tend to be elaborate events with lavish attire and lots of body jewelry and paint. If proper care is not taken with makeup application by a professional Indian wedding makeup artist, the bride's attire and accessories could become the focal point for her guests – when all eyes should be on her.
