Toronto Best Indian Wedding Makeup Artists

First and foremost, we are writing this blog based on our experience with working with some of the best makeup and hair artists in Toronto and as photographers, we are basing this article on the following things:

  1. How makeup and hair did by these artists look in images.
  2. How they handle Dupatta for Indian weddings
  3. How great they are with their service (communication, follow-ups and educating clients)

After photographing over 170 Indian weddings across different parts of the world, we know the immense role makeup artists play in Indian weddings. Getting an Indian bride ready requires knowledge not only on makeup but on dupatta setting and a lot of different variables.

Here is Some Knowledge on Makeup and Hair for Indian Wedding Brides

Picture vs Reality

There are a couple of things to be mindful of before making your final vendor selection. Makeup and hair can really look different in pictures than in reality. Some brides prefer that makeup looks good in pictures though it may look a little cakey in reality. Other brides may prefer that their makeup looks very neat but it may come off very subtle in images.

Keep in mind both these options are a personal choice; when you see magazine images they are highly retouched. Magazines are dealing with a select few images so it possible to retouch one image for 4 hours before it’s printed. On the contrary, we are working with more than 1400 images so in weddings, photographers do not retouch every image to that detail. We, at our studio, take about 5-10 portraits per bride and retouch them to large canvas details. Therefore it’s your choice as the bride to see what works the best for you. You may want to discuss this with your makeup artist.

Dupatta Setting  

One big part of Indian bridal needs is the dupatta setting also known as the Indian veil; trust us, this really can make or break the look sometimes. We always recommend Sikh and Hindu brides to always have dupatta border thinner for their wedding ceremony so that it sits well on the head. We suggest that you discuss the different placements you can do or prefer for your dupatta with your makeup and hair team once you have the outfits and jewellery.

How Much Time Do Makeup Artists Need

Keep in mind that an Indian bridal look can take upto 3 hours depending on the hair and makeup style you have selected and can also vary depending by artists. Also note that time may not include the dupatta setting time. Therefore, always have this conversation with the makeup artist before and be sure to coordinate timings with your photographer.

To ensure, we as photographers, get enough time for bridal portraits, family pictures and dupatta photos for a Sikh or Hindu Indian Wedding, we need about 90 minutes with the bride before she has to step out of her house.

For example, if you are planning to leave a 8:15 am for your Sikh ceremony, get your makeup artist to have you fully ready by 6:30 am.

How to find a makeup artist for Indian Weddings

Ask a Past Bride About her Experience

Although, this may not be the most accurate way it’s always a good idea to connect with one or two previous brides or ask other vendors like photographers their experience of working with different makeup artists.

Finally here are some of the best Indian makeup artist that we have worked in the past. Keep in mind all these makeup artists are great and you will be in great hands working with all these companies.
