Shrutilaya – Makeup and Hair Artist
- Posted on in Makeup Artists
Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to be an artist. My life revolved around brushes, crayons, pencils and colours. I always knew I wanted to do something creative, and I worked towards that.
I studied Design and majored in Fashion Design at University, but soon found that it wasn’t creative enough for me. I needed to work with my hands, creating lines, textures and shapes.
When I discovered makeup, I realized it had everything I was looking for – creativity, working with brushes and most importantly enhancing a person’s natural beauty.
After graduating from University, I worked on a lot of projects as a freelance makeup artist, and once I realized that I would love nothing more than to be a Makeup Artist for the rest of my life, I packed my bags and moved to London to study Makeup and Hair at the Delamar Academy in Ealing Studios where I trained in Fashion and Editorial Makeup, Special Effects Makeup, Basic Prosthetics, Bodypainting and Airbrushing. I also trained in Hair – Cutting and barbering, Styling, Wigs, Wedding Hair and Period hair and Makeup.
My philosophy when it comes to Beauty Makeup is enhancing, not hiding. I believe we need to look like the best version of ourselves, and the easiest way to do that is enhancing our best features.
