Couldn't have picked a better name for my wedding day makeup. The professionalism and taste were exactly aligned to how I had imagined my look to be, in fact better. I was initially apprehensive about it, because this needed travel to Abhijit's studio which is a good 45 minutes away from my place in Kolkata. But it was really worth it.

I don't know how he claims to be a makeup artist, ruined my best friends special day with his mediocre hands. I have seen his name come up on many lists but hearing the bad experience of so many users, I am sure it's due to SEO hacking. Please remove this from from this platform. Worst makeup artist of Kolkata

Worst experience. I had booked him for all my functions. On my wedding day he made me look horrible. The make up was like it was a party make up and the hair! Pathetic!

The WORST experience of the entire course of my wedding celebrations was when I got my makeup and hair done by abhijit for one of the smaller (luckily) functions! He walked in casually about an hour late without so much as an apology either from him or his equally incompetent and rude staff! Apart from that he was constantly just talking (bitching) about certain tollywood celebrities and producers while trying to ask me questions which were absolutely NONE of his business (What I got as wedding trousseau (specifically what brands- I mean just do you job?!!!) He caked me up so bad, I looked like the lead ghost from a horror movie but kept insisting that it would eventually set ! (It really didn't) and just wouldn't listen when I protested! This wasn't even the worst of it! While doing my hair, he was consulting with other brides to be when I had booked him for that slot ! The result? Limp and damp hair that made it look as though I had just oiled it! Cakey and patchy makeup and a beautiful lehenga made to look like trash simply because of the way he had draped it ! This man is the most incompetent, overrated, unprofessional and shameless "makeup artist" (If you can remotely call him that) there is ! And it's a travesty that this is the level of disservice I got after paying good money (absolutely down the drain) to him! Suffice to say it wouldn't be an exaggeration that a local salon artist would be a better makeup artist, heck my dog could probably do better ! I had prior to this appointment, paid an advance to him for my wedding reception appointment , which I obviously didn't keep despite the hefty payment already remitted ! This is a public service announcement more than anything else, to all those looking for a good hmu artist in kolkata, you'd be much better off with Prasenjit or Nabin das both of whom are not only WAY more talented, but also much more professional (I've worked with them both) To abhijit , all I wonder is how he sleeps at night knowing he is such a SHAM!

He showed up 1 hour 45 mins late for my engagement make up and made me miss my muhurat. After showing up so late he tried to speed through my hair and makeup which resulted in the look not turning out very good. Made me cry bucket loads of anxious tears before my engagement due to his late arrival

I’m not very comfortable with makeup n like to keep things very basic... and Abhijit Da did completely that... he knows what will suit you best... so my advice to the brides is sit back and witness the magic that he does.

Trusting his wizardry completely for my destination wedding. He made me feel super comfortable even at the first meeting!

The only thing that matters is enjoying your own wedding and being present in the moment. Everything else can be taken care of. A lot of credit goes to Abhijit Chanda, my makeup artist, for making me look exactly how I imagined.

Abhijit is truly a magician and working with him was an experience in itself. He does exactly what you wish for, for your special day! I loved all the looks that he gave me for my wedding.

I was lucky to find him through wedmegood. He is a Darling both as a person and as a professional. When i first met him for a trial makeup, i instantly loved the magic of his brush. He made me look what i am rather than what i am not. I gave him the freedom to work his magic on me and loved the way i looked.Source

Abhijit Chanda is expert in Bengali brides and is truly one of the best. He has experience of over 2500 brides. Bookings are really hard during wedding season so you have to make sure to make prior arrangements and avoid last time bookings. The charges are around 30000 inr but if you want airbrush makeup, the charges are a little extra. Read more about Abhijit Chanda on my blog, Vanity No Apologies.
