“For as long as I can remember myself, art has always been an inseparable part of my being and my identity. From the range of creations, I was naturally attracted to the art of makeup. It is a colorful world that gives manifestation to humanity, emotions, expressions, desires and the expression of the “true self”. When makeup joins the ensemble of these human traits, I feel that closure has been achieved in the human form and a sense of perfection, security and enlightenment is created.”
“Professional makeup is a creative world that each time leads me into a spectacular journey of beauty that touches the emotions of people and that brings out their inner spark. The ability to discover a person through the use of a makeup brush, two hands and amulti-colored makeup, gives me an ultimate feeling of excitement.”
Smily’s first institutional knowledge of make-up artistry and hair styling came under Ms Samantha Kochhar, at PIVOT POINT, New Delhi , where she learnt advanced make-up techniques . It was the beginning of her “never stop learning “ career as a make-up artist & hair stylist .In the subsequent years ,she did numerous make-up & hair workshops with Kori Waliya , Natures , L’oreal& others to improve upon her knowledge.To get a broader perspective of the art, she also went to London for an NVQ Level 2 course certified by the City & Guilds International, London.The first true professional recognition of Smily’s work came when she was awarded with the 2009-Pan India MAGIC HANDS AWARD from VLCC Healthcare Ltd. for the best make-up artist & hair stylist after which she never turned back.
She also went to Mumbai for a course in advanced make-up artistry at PANKAKE under the expert guidance of Puneet (former National Head Trainer of MAC, India and personal Makeup Artist of Anushka Sharma). It helped her to get herself better acquainted with Bollywood make-ups in a much better way. During her career spanning over more than 12 years, Smily has been doing numerous ramp makeups, fashion shoots, portfolio shoots and bridal makeups. From her sense of commitment and enormous love of the field she has always encouraged her clients to present her with both positive and negative feedbacks as she firmly believes that only both can help you to truly improve your work in a constant fashion.
