Sandhya Shekar

MAKEUP ARTIST

Sandhya's passion for Hair and Make up started at a very young age, from when she was a child stealing her mother's make up while she was away, to experiment on herself and her friends who would go back home to horrified parents who would find their 7 year olds with smudgy red lipstick and multi coloured nails. With painting her face with water colors to staining her cheeks with beetroot she had tried and tested it all.

After working in the financial world for a while she gave up banking to give Make up a shot .She started off professionally on her own in 2010 and has since become one of the most well known names in the Industry. Her client list includes magazines like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Grazia, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Verve etc. She's worked on innumerable print campaigns and television commercials and also worked with the some of the biggest names in Bollywood, although recently what she's excited about the most is her latest and most famous client, hollywood actress Rosario Dawson, who she worked with during her recent visit to India.

Sandhya is always looking for new and exciting projects to work on.
Needless to say her mother still has no idea where all her make up disappeared over the years.
