Aby was so amazing and made my wedding morning absolutely great! She is so flexible and did such an astounding job on my makeup. Words can’t describe how amazing her work is. My entire makeup and hair look lasted for well over 12 hours with red lipstick! I was astounded. Not only did my own make up have such great longevity so did all my bridesmaids! She is so talented. Do not hesitate to hire her!

The fairy godmother for my fairytale wedding!
Where to begin with the amazing Abhilasha Singh?!? First off, I was plan all, do all bride. About six months before my wedding I had the venue, the dress, the food, decorations, florist, decorations and everything in between picked out and finalized. Except, of course, the dreaded makeup artist and hair stylist. I consider myself to be fairly girly/feminine, but I do not like the way I look in heavy make-up... at all! I cried after having my make-up done for my engagement party because I did not feel the least bit pretty. And, coming from a fairly traditional Lebanese household, my mom and sister had high expectations that I wear about 10 lbs of makeup!
Abhilasha returned my call and follow-up with me after I went missing for a good month (I had some health stuff to deal with). After she got back on my radar, I know I was pretty late in the game and needed to book someone fast. She was so kind on the phone and after briefly explaining my vision over the phone on my lunch break while traveling for work, she reiterated what I said and THEN SOME! A few months later, I went by her place for the trial. You know how every woman wants her "ah ha" moment when she tries on her wedding dress?!? Screw the wedding dress, Abhilasha made me feel like a bride in jeans and a white tank top! I mean, wow!!! She is so unbelievably skillful with foundation and skin. I've never seen anything like it. I felt like a celebrity with my hair and extensions, which came part of the package.
Leading up to the first look and/or ceremony, you spend the most amount of time with your make-up artist and hair stylist and photographer. I loved being around Abhilasha so much I want to be friends! She is witty, professional, charming, and so freaking good at what she does. Wedding day was organized down to the last second. Mostly because of me, but also because she knew what needed to get done. She brought a few of her girls with her to do my bridesmaids hair and makeup and they did a great job.
Everyone was in awe at my makeup and they could not get over how spectacular my hair looked. I had a grand wedding with a Lebanese zaffe entrance and needed my hair and makeup to stand out, but not over shadow the dress and venue. I felt like myself 100% and that was the most important thing to me. But, I felt the most beautiful I ever have in my life.
Abhilasha was worth every cent and then some. She traveled from San Francisco to Monterey, CA and helped make my fairy tale wedding a dream come true. I recommend her over and over again.

Perfect makeup for my perfect day
Aby is one of the kind. Her skills and experience are typically only available on the movie or TV sets. Aby’s overall beauty knowledge on the process and how things work together are unprecedented. She transformed my hairstyle - flat hair colored highlights and cut to a fresh, up to date look. She also styled me for my special day by giving me a makeover with make up that was understated yet, emphasized my eyes and features and gave me that glam look. She has selected for the makeup tones that looked natural yet gave me confidence and held through the day. Being a fair-skin and blond I always avoided a strong dark makeup but what Aby selected was simply perfect.
We are really lucky to have Aby in San Francisco.
