Delhi’s Hottest Bridal Makeup Artists

8 Feb

I’m back!

Pukka. Permanently. Properly.

I’ve missed you guys!!! Yes, I know you’ve sent me many emails, left comments here and Facebook-ed me. Will get through all of it slowly but surely over the course of the next week.

While I was gone, one of the posts I wrote for eStylista got published. And it’s something you’ll hopefully find really useful –  a list of the best MUAs in Delhi! My opinion, obviously.

I’m helping someone out with their roka preparation at the moment (how many of you are getting engaged/married this April?! Seems like it’s going to be heavy wedding month!) and we actually referred to this list to finalise her MUA! So it’s officially been tried and tested, and will hopefully help you find your bridal MUA!

Here’s the link to the post –

Super Blogger: thedelhibride Recommends the City’s Hottest Bridal Makeup Artists

My top recommendations are (in no particular order) – Chandni Singh, Simran Kalra, Tejasvini Chander, Mona of b:blunt (my own wedding MUA) and Supriti Batra.

Let me know if I’ve missed anyone you love – in the comments below!

PS. Attended 2 beautiful weddings last week, and I can’t stop gushing about them! More about them soon!

    Good to see you back again :) ! How about Michelle Montes?
    I am getting married on 4th March (I know hardly any days are left ) but couldn’t finalise my MUA till yet.
    What are chargers for Mona from b blunt !

    Hiee.. I am getting married in April too :) Right now, I am so much confused for my wedding and engagement MUA — Ambika Pillai or Vidya Tikari (at gurgaon location). I have seen Vidya’s talent on few of my friends but did not get a chance to see Ambika’s work. I am looking for both good hairstylist and definitely beautiful makeup.
    On top of everything, I am not located in India and will be coming about two weeks before the D day.
    This is my first ever post on any blog. I hope someone/you can help me figure out one of the most essential part of my wedding.

      Hi! If these are your only 2 options, go for the one whose work you’ve seen in person and liked. If you’ve loved vidya’s work on your friends, book her. But if u want more options, supriti Batra and Tejasvini Chander are good Gurgaon-based options. Check out supriti’s review on this blog, and see tejasvini’s Facebook page for her portfolio.


      • Shwetaa February 12, 2014 at 8:52 pm #

        Thank you for writing to me and helping me figure out my MUA.
        Unfortunately, neither Vidya nor Ambika is at gurgaon location on my wedding day(sad..) and I cant take risk of Delhi Traffic on the D day. Anyways, I talked to Vidya’s senior artist – Michelle and he was very kind and patiently responded to my queries (as I am not located in India).
        Last two questions — Do you/anyone know about the work of Vidya’s any senior artist or senior artist Michelle at gurgaon location?
        What will be your top MUA in the list at Gurgaon?

        Thank you much much!! muahh..

          Hi Shweta,,,
          mY 2 cents..dont do a senior artist..always better to go with the artist themselves.. You might want to check out Simran Kalra- she travels…Sakshi sagar is gurgaon based too…


          • WMG_Wedding Blog February 18, 2014 at 12:26 pm #

            Also check out Plum Gurgaon ! They did makeup for this bride …I think they did a really good job


          • shaina February 24, 2015 at 2:39 pm #

            My personal experience with sakshi sagar was bad.she came an hour early and created panick during haldi ceremony.thats the time when you need to be calm.after that her drapist was not good, dupatta draping was all messed up in two hours.and make up was very average.
            for my shagun kangana kochar was the make up artist she did an amazing job.

    What about Michelle Montes ? Any reviews on her. Personally, I have not seen her work in real !


    • Steffi January 20, 2015 at 4:47 pm #

      Michelle was my make up artist and she did make me look the perfect bride. She is very nice to work with. I had a good experience working with her and would really recommend for brides to be.

    Hi, I have been a follower of your blog and it is indeed insightful. I am getting married on 26th April and have been trying to narrow down on MUA based out of Delhi, preferable who has experience with Muslim Brides in particular. Also, would want feedback on Anjum Bhardwaj, as i liked her work.


    • Saach May 8, 2014 at 12:56 pm #

      Hi Zaiba,

      Do you have any reviews for Anjum Bhardwaj?

    Finally, I asked Shruti Sharma for my wedding MUA. Her work has amazed me :) (blush blush)
    Her makeup was turned the best in me :) Simply loved it . Strongly recommended.

        Hi! I’ve been falling your blog for my wedding due in August. I just got engaged in February and had my hair and make up done by Sakshi Malik! Her work is to die for! I have never looked so gorgeous! I think she definitely deserves a shout out :D

  14. Manu January 23, 2015 at 10:39 pm #

    Please stay away from Supriti Batra. My sister got her engagement make up done from her going by the comments on this blog but she is below average. Her hair stylist is very bad. Please please stay away fron her


  15. Mahima March 30, 2015 at 6:36 pm #

    Hi! I am getting married in Dec this year, the wedding and all other functions would be Noida, wanted to know of good and affordable MUAs in noida, I want to get ready at the studio and not at the venue, so would need names of MUAs in Noida. What I have seen is all MUAs are from Delhi or Gurgaon, I think Anjum Bhardwaj has a studio in Noida, anyone else?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    • thedelhibride May 14, 2015 at 6:29 pm #

      Both are good, but I have experienced Tejasvini’s multiple times so I can personally vouch for her.



  1. Makeup 101: How To Apply Foundation – the right way! | thedelhibride Indian Weddings blog - March 5, 2014

    […] I’m still a makeup novice (though I could’ve fooled you with the amount of makeup gyaan I’m always willing to share!) so I roped in a REAL expert – Tejasvini Chander! She’s a young MUA, though she’s already making waves in the beauty world. And she was on my list of the hottest bridal MUAs in Delhi! […]
