Sandhya Shekar‘s is a professional makeup artist.
Sandhya’s passion for hair and makeup started at a very young age, from stealing her mother’s make up 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 makeup a shot.
She started off professionally on her own in mid 2009 and has since become one of the most well known names in the industry.
Her client list includes magazines like Vogue, Elle, Harper‘s Bazaar, Grazia, GQ, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan to name a few.
She’s worked on innumerable print campaigns, television commercials and with some of the biggest names in Bollywood.
Her clientele includes Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, Jacqueline Fernandes, Aditi Rao Hydari and Parineeti Chopra among others.
She is also responsible for some of the most iconic looks of Deepika Padukone at the Cannes Film Festival and the MET Gala.
The industry recognized her excellence by awarding her Vogue Makeup Artist of the Year 2018 and Elle Artist of the Year 2016.
Sandhya is always looking for new and exciting projects to work on.
Needless to say her mother still has no idea where all her makeup disappeared over the years.
