India’s Top 5 Bridal Makeup Artists for Every Style
Whether you’re a hardcore make-up junkie or one who only believes in the modest liner-and-lip gloss ritual for every damned occasion, if it’s your much-awaited wedding day (or your BFF’s), you got to up your game of getting dressed and rocking that look with killer make-up. After all, this is the day where all of the lights will be on you, girl!
While you’ll spend countless feet-numbing days to try on that perfect designer lehenga, make-up comes in at the last moment.

Look for your kinda make-up artist well in advance and book the day to get your pretty self-pampered right before you hit the spotlight! The artists are right here, and yes, there’s one for every kinda style.
Here’s a list of the top 5
Ambika Pillai (Delhi NCR)
An award-winning artist who’s worked with many Bollywood celebrities, she’s a very well-known name in Delhi and Mumbai. She’s known to transform brides on their D-day with her amazing makeup as well as hair styling techniques. From heavy makeup for that typical bride look to the minimalist yet classy style suitable for parties and engagements, Ambika has created looks for many a bride and her girlies. She’s difficult to get during wedding seasons, so you need to book her services well in advance, to avoid last-minute panic and pancake faces (uh-oh).
Chandni Singh (Delhi)
Perfect for ladies who like the fresh and dewy look without going over the top with makeup, Chandni is an easy-going and super friendly makeup professional in Delhi. She makes her clients look all-natural and glowing by creating the perfect base, something that girls like you and me can never do in a lifetime! She’s based out of New Delhi and can be booked from her own website for a complete makeover – from hair and makeup to draping and nail art.
Daniel Bauer (Mumbai)
One of the most sought after artists of India, Daniel has worked for Bollywood divas like Aishwarya Rai, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut and Kareena Kapoor – creating looks for movie promotions, red carpet appearances as well as advertisements. That being said, he still finds time for real-life brides, preparing glamorous divas for a perfect picture-ready day under the lights. He’s also been featured in top magazines like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, which explains why you need to book him atleast 6-months in advance.
Sireesha Tella (Hyderabad)
Consistently ranked among the top makeup artists in India, Sireesha Tella is one artist who has seen the brides and cultures of all the different regions of the country. She’s been a part of the Rajput style destination weddings in Udaipur and Jaipur, lavish Punjabi weddings in Northern India, charismatic and culture-rich Bengali weddings, the elegant South Indian weddings and even the weddings held outside of India.
Her versatility is what makes her the favorite of all brides-to-be. Coming from the royal city of Hyderabad, she creates an absolute sophisticated and royal look for all her clients by giving the skin a fresh glow and creating beautiful cat eyes with a lot of shimmer. Owing to her popularity, she gets booked almost 7-8 months in advance.
Vidya Tikari (New Delhi)
Yet another popular makeup artist who can completely transform your looks in an artistic manner, Vidya seeks to put her subjects somewhere in the middle of being outrightly glittery and minimalistic. Her creative style has transformed many a plain Jane to a drool-worthy diva. Based out of New Delhi, she has also decked up the likes of Madhuri Dixit, Bipasha Basu and Deepika Padukone.
