Excerpts from our exclusive interview with her:
Q1) Tell us a little bit about your your journey & How you find your inner talent, please;
I was a makeup lover since childhood, always loved decking up. So passionate! . But i never realized this during my academic phase. I completed my masters & PGDM but when it was my turn to get myself a job i couldn’t make up my mind, everything was turning out to be so tough. I finally realized am not a 9 to 5 person. A war was always on in my head. Meanwhile I flew to Pune for my cousin’s engagement .She was decked up beautifully and i couldn’t resist myself asking. She told me she got her makeup done from a Makeup Artist. Her words hit me hard. As i saw things that was close to my heart. I realized I SHOULD BRING MY PASSION AND CAREER TOGETHER.
I started up with my research. Checking out different makeup artists across India ,finding the best one to learn from. but I was still stuck with AMRIT KAUR ,the makeup artist who decked up my cousin , no doubt she is one of the best in India . And the most interesting part was when iI enquired about her classes, I got to know it was after 7 days!!! I decided ‘ THIS IS IT ” …
I Learned makeup from her and got awarded………
I came back.. I was so confident with my makeup skills but somewhere this confidence was lacking with hairstyling.
Again i flew to Delhi to learn from one of the finest hairstylist AMIT KUMAR..
And finally everything was at place .. i started up with POOJA ARORA ARTISTRY ..
