Women, in general, are fond of dressing up and getting dolled up for special occasions. On the day of their wedding, brides wish to look their best as they are set to marry the love of their life. Aside from a beautiful wedding dress, brides also need a bridal look that brings out their natural beauty and personality. One professional makeup artist who has mastered the art of bridal makeup is Kiran Tiwari of Beauty Crafts by Kiran.
Kiran has been in the industry for three years. After graduating from a makeup school, Kiran immediately booked different makeup projects, which included two wedding assignments. From there, Kiran's clientele steadily grew.
When working with brides, Kiran understands that each client has her own set of bridal beauty needs--this is why Kiran makes an effort to get to know her brides. "I need to communicate well with my client [in order to know] their demands," explains Kiran. She sees to it that each client undergoes a trial makeup session, as doing so allows her to familiarize herself with their facial features and determine the perfect makeup products that suit the bride. Whether the bride prefers a classic look or dares to go for glamorous one, Kiran delivers.
Moreover, Kiran takes into consideration the cultural and religious elements of a wedding when styling her brides. Kiran shares, "For the usual Christian or Catholic wedding here in the Philippines, I love to [keep the look] simple, and elegant. I focus on highlighting and contouring. I also love to do classic [bridal] eye makeup, [which features] a gold or pink satin finish on the lids and browns for the crease. For my Indian and Arabian brides, I usually use red, gold and black, which are traditionally used for Indian and Arabian weddings. I go for dark eyebrows and dark eyeliners or match the eyeshadow with the color of the bride's Lehenga-style saree (a kind of Indian dress)."
To ensure quality makeup services, Kiran regularly goes abroad to attend makeup workshops, and scout the latest cosmetic products and trends. As she constantly works on improving her cosmetic expertise, Kiran gives her brides the best makeup service they deserve on their big day.
