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!

Aby is a Makeup Goddess!
To all the ladies out there who are on the verge of deciding whether or not to hire Aby, let me ask you one question.. ‘WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ?!?!’ Am pretty sure you’ve seen her work online and are in love with it already. You know you want to hire her, so why waste time by second guessing yourself?
I got married in February of this year and Aby did my hair and makeup. And can I just say, she did a phenomenal job. She worked with me from day 1 to perfectly curate the two looks for my ceremony and reception that I felt comfortable with. For the morning ceremony, we went with a subtle look with glowy skin and simple bun for hair-do whereas for the evening reception, we still went with glowy skin BUT with grey smoky eyes and wavy hair. I loved both the looks! And the best part, I didn’t have to touch up my makeup at all, other than just blotting some oil from my face.
And ladies, get this-- she will work with you as early as 3 months prior to the occasion date to make sure your hair and skin is at its ultimate best on the day of. Based on the skin/hair type you have, she will recommend home remedies, diet changes and/or natural products to get to that beauty goal. She will ACTUALLY listen to what you have to say and bring your makeup/hair vision to life. She will take her time to make you look perfect for your big day/occasion.
I personally believe that makeup is to accentuate features you already have. The purpose of makeup products was never meant to make you look like a completely different person. And Aby believes in that!! She will do her magic on you, but YOU will still look like YOU. You will look glamorous after she is done, but you will still recognize yourself in the mirror, which for me was a big deal .
I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone who is seeking a makeup/hair artist. I am a happy customer, and will work with her every chance I get.

The experience was amazing!!
My experience with Abhilasha on my wedding day was absolutely amazing!! This is the first time in my life I'm writing a review for anything but felt compelled to write something. I was very very hesitant about getting my makeup done as I don't like to wear alot of makeup. Abhilasha had that covered- she was extremely receptive to what I felt comfortable wearing and did not push me in any direction. I loved the way my makeup looked on my wedding day and this is coming from someone who doesn't like to wear makeup. Because I trusted her I ended up wearing more than I ever have and it looked great! Mostly I felt completely like myself, which I felt she captured with an art. She did a great job with my hair as well.
There is something about Abhilasha that is so easy going yet so caring. I felt throughout the process as if I had a family member in my corner. I only had to make the decision to work with her and she so kindly took care of the rest. Abhilasha is truly gifted at what she does and she can make however faint a vision you make have of yourself on your wedding day a reality because she has a unique eye for hair and makeup.
