It was my wedding day and I had to wear a lot of makeup because helloo I am talking about a typical Punjabi/desi wedding here.
It had been a task, seriously, it was not easy to find that one makeup artist who would not paint my face with all the colors plus glitters, the makeup where the skin of my face will match with the skin of my hands.
After wandering around half of the city (Lahore), I met THE ONE.
How did I find her?
Funny story, but when I met her, turned out she was the same person who did my sister’s makeup on her wedding day. lolz
I went to this parlor, Madeeha’s in DHA, and as soon as I started checking out their portfolio, I knew in my heart I will be getting ready from here.
After talking to their representative, I booked for their senior makeup artist with final checks from Madeeha herself.
Their makeup is flawless, trust me, definitely your dress and jewelry have an impression too on your face, and you need a makeup that would contrast with everything you wear, a makeup that won’t stand out, they had that thing which made me select them for my big day bearing in mind all the concerns I had.
The best thing about Madeeha’s is, their makeup packages, with nominal prices providing extra ordinary makeup look. While in other top class makeup salons like Allenora, Amna Raja, New look, Maram & Abroo, you might get good makeup with double the cost.
The day had arrived and I went to parlor.
Here’s a tip: Save few pictures of your favorite makeup looks in your phone, show it your makeup artist so she knows what are looking for. Do that for hairstyles too.
I had done that too.
I met my makeup artist Shamsa, and she asked me what kind of makeup I am looking for, I told her about all my fears of looking like a plastic doll with too much foundation and colorful makeup, showed her some pictures I had saved in my phone.
As soon as she started, I knew she had amazing knowledge about makeup and she knew exactly what do with my face. After every step, she would ask me if I am liking it or if I want something different, not everyone does that.
She was so honest with her work, and I could feel how she wanted me to look best on my wedding day. This made me feel so comfortable, because you got to have this trust on someone to paint your face that too on your big day. I was more than happy to trust her.
And here comes the bride.
I suppose you can trust her and Madeeha’s too.
I must say, she is one the finest makeup artists Madeeha’s have.
To all my girls getting married this season, do check Madeeha’s saloon before getting your booking done anywhere else. It will save your money too with that same (or above) standard you are looking for.
