Unlike most makeup artists who held a makeup brush before they held a pen, my story is a little different.
I spent majority of my life trying to do things that I felt were more traditionally accepted but I didn't enjoy at all. I always knew that I loved hair and makeup but never really thought I could make a career out of something most would presume just a hobby. It wasn't until I got a bit older that I decided to pursue what I truly love. In 2005 I started my career as a self-taught hair and makeup artist. As time went on, I furthered my expertise by attending cosmetology school in New York as well as formal hair and dressing in India. As I grow in the bridal industry, continuing my education is important to me. I have attended workshops by renowned celebrity artists such as Martin Parsons, Lizzie Liros, Scott Barnes and Kevin James Bennett. I have also taken classes by social media guru’s Dress Your Face, Theresa Francine and Lara C. Kay. As well as various workshops held by the brands Temptu, Mac and Make Up For Ever.
Makeup and hair was always a passion of mine and now I gladly call it my profession as well. I specialize in bridal hair and makeup, inclusive to all aspects of hairstyling, hair extensions, airbrush foundation, eyelash application and Indian bridal dressing.

Heena did my make up for my sister’s wedding and she was absolutely amazing!! She was professional, experienced and talented. I have sensitive skin and cystic acne and was able to cover all my acne scars without make me look cakey or clownish. You can tell she has experience with diverse clientele because she was able to match my skin tone.Sent on 02/28/2019
Her talent is matched by her professionalism. She was calm on a hectic day and never lost her cool! Additionally she was able to match everyone’s tastes. Whether they wanted a heavy full face, or a more natural look- she was able to achieve it. Thank you so much Heena! -Jane

Heena is the absolute best at what she does. I was starting to get discouraged after completing two trials with other artists for my wedding. After meeting Heena, she really listened to what I wanted, my problem areas, and understood my more natural style. My trial was everything I hoped it would be. She also did hair and makeup for my bridal shower and I had never gotten so many compliments before!Sent on 03/04/2019
On wedding day, Heena and her team were calm and collected. I loved everything about my look - from foundation, to lashes, to lip color. The best part was that I looked like a heightened version of myself. My bridal party consisted of girls from many different backgrounds, skin tones, and styles. Heena was able to cater to each girl and personalize their look. Everyone looked stunning! We stayed on time and I never felt stressed during the whole process. I felt absolutely beautiful walking down the aisle. Thank you Heena!

Heena - words can’t express my gratitude towards you! You were extremely patient, kind, and made me feel so comfortable when I came in for my trial. I knew from that experience alone that I would be okay on my big day. My hair and makeup were everything I ever dreamed of and I felt like a queen when everything came together. Heena went above and beyond for me, working around our tight morning schedule and adjusting to accommodate us, all stress free! I could’nt have picked a better MUA and team! Thanks, Heena. -Sheedhal Mathew (New Hyde Park)Sent on 04/08/2018
