I always had it against makeups. It's always a hit or miss for me or other people too. My perspective changed when I had Gargi do my makeup for my wedding. When she was working, I felt like my face was the canvas and she was the painter. Her craft and meticulousness brought a beauty I didn't know I had. Even though she's a pro, she doesn't have that sort of stiffness that title entails. She was funny, warm and endearing, which quickly put me at ease. When she worked, I never felt that I was just a client, but was treated as though I was a long time friend. Keep at it Gargi. You truly are wonderful!!!

In a nutshell, I couldn't have asked for a better make-up artist. I'm based overseas and got married in India so I was very nervous about booking someone based on reviews. I first met Gargi during our make-up trial (just 4 days before the wedding) and from the second she started working on me, I had complete faith that she would do an amazing job. She has a nice natural style, practices good hygiene and ofcourse has a very kind and fun-loving energy. On the wedding day, she really did go above and beyond - helping with my hair amd jewellery as we were running late. I got so many compliments on the makeup and hair looks. Plus, everyone who met Gargi - loved her as well.

I reached out to Gargi after having a terrible experience with another makeup artist and I was cautious this time. However, Gargi turned out to be an awesome professional who kept things straight from the beginning. She called for a trial at the earliest possible so that we can start working on different looks required for my two functions. After the trial, we discussed different looks on whatsapp, along with my hair do. For both my functions, she was at the venue before time to have some buffer for setting up her lights, equipments, etc. I had absolutely a lovely time working with her! Everyone loved her work and a lot of my friends even asked for her contact. One thing to mention here is, Gargi gives you all her time, doesn't work on schedule basis trying to fit multiple appointments that might rush her. This is something that is extremely valuable in her profession and she addresses her clients concerns above everything else! Go for Gargi, she keeps you calm while working on you and makes you feel at ease right before the big day starts!

I would 100% recommend Gargi for any events. She did my makeup for both my reception and muhurtham. She went beyond expectations during the event to make sure that I was able to stay calm, through simple favors like helping my friend drape her dupatta and buying extra roses for my hair. Prior to the event, she was very communicative in discussing potential options and setting up a trial. Even after the first trial, once we found that a certain part of the makeup wasn't working well, she invited me for a second trial to ensure that we were ready for the events, and was very considerate about specific details that I was concerned about. The looks she created were exactly what I wanted. Would highly recommend!

Gargi did my makeup for the muhurtam and the reception. And, she did a great job! I had booked her without doing a trial first so I was a little bit nervous about the final look. When we scheduled a trial just two weeks before the wedding, I was immediately put at ease since Gargi was so friendly and open to suggestions. I loved how she also offered her opinions without being pushy. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early, set up her station and was extremely patient. She uses premium make up products, maintains a clean working space and tools and is an absolute pleasant person to have around on your wedding day. I highly recommend her services!

I can't thank her enough for making me look better than how I imagined. If you are choosing her as your makeup artist for your big day then let me tell you, you are in safe hands!! She doesn't do anything too much or too less. She will find the perfect balance! During the trial I told her what I wanted and she understood it and did exactly that Infact better than that! Also, the another important thing about the bridal makeup is the whole experience and I had an amazing one. She was like a friend, discussing things, calming me down during my anxiety outbreaks, pampering me and making me feel it really is my day! I am really happy that I chose her. Thanks a ton Gargi!

I had seen Gargi's work at a friend's wedding and loved the look! Thankfully she was available for my wedding even though it was last minute. She is very professional and is open to hearing to what idea you have in mind and suggests what would look the best for you. The makeup was natural, not over the top, just right for the occasion. She is chill and it was calming having her around.

I found Gargi through WMG and instantly wanted to connect with her. Something about her work made me feel that I would be in good hands on my big day and Iâm glad it was one of the best wedding decisions made! Gargi is a thorough professional right from the trial at her place. She takes time and effort to understand what youâre looking for and is very easy to talk to and very receptive to feedback. Sheâs punctual and was there at the venue for both my muhurtham and reception well ahead of time. Sheâs very well organised and calm and composed. She did an amazing job for both my looks. She worked magic for my reception look as I was two hours late to the venue stuck in traffic. She did an amazing makeover in the limited time she had and canât thank her enough for that! Her accomplice Rani was also very good in saree draping especially considering the limited time I had to change. All in all it was a wonderful experience with Gargi and Iâm very glad that I did not have second thoughts in choosing her!

Hi Gargi, I know this is super long overdue. Words cannot explain how beautiful you made me feel on my wedding day.. it was everything I wanted and more. My make up and hair looked amazing! I loved the way you handled make up and you used the best products.. and I had no skin problems after the wedding.. this was a huge concern for me :) It was a joy to watch you do my makeup and I was heartbroken when I had to remove it end of the day hahahaha! Your passion, professionalism and how amazingly organised and clean you are inspired and impressed me.. all the way it was a win win for me.. Thank you so much! Lots of love to you ð

Gargi is a class apart, she is truly an artist and her passion towards make up is comes alive through her work. It's been a wonderful experience since the trials. Her ability to customize color tone etc according to the bride is something unique. She is very organised and her make up kits are prepped for super model material. Moreover she is a wonderful person to have by your side in your big day!

Gargi is honestly the best Mua you can have around on the day of your event. She is on time, efficient, and really a calming presence to have around. She makes sure you are having fun and really living in the moment while she does your make up. The one thing that my fiance and I loved about her is that she really is into make up because it's a passion and not a "job" for her, and that shows in the end results as well. She never once said no to any of my requests and took all my feedback into consideration and made it all work well in the end. I was really also fascinated by all the branded products she has, she makes sure nothing will damage your skin and is very gentle. I loved having her for my engagement, can't recommend her enough!!!! So glad I booked her already for all my other events :D

I absolutely loved Gargi's work! I booked Gargi for a wedding reception (for the bride) with no time for trial (believe me, I only spoke to her once on the phone followed by a couple of whats app conversations) and perhaps a leap of faith.. and I'm so glad I chose her! She was warm and professional.. and make the whose experience so stress free. The make up was natural and perfect for the occasion. I would totally recommend her to any one looking for a make up artist.

I did a trial with Gargi during which we discussed the look and shades needed and she was very understanding about My preferences and adapted her style well to that. She was on time and professional and we loved the final work on the wedding day! Thankyou so much for understanding the necessity of a coorg bride and giving me a beautiful look for my wedding !

Gargi creates magic with her make up and Made me look like a dream. Especially cause all I wanted was basic nude make up and she still made me look so glamorous. Gargi, I am so glad you were the one who did my make up. It felt like I had a friend around me the whole time and continue to do what you do, as a model and wedding planner I have worked with many MUA but none so unique like you combined with the skill of creating magic with make up and a great person. Wishing you all the success ♥️

I will highly recommend Gargi. I was beyond happy with my makeup and hair. She was on time, organised and professional. She understood my look and we got connected because we shared the same frequency. I wanted my look to be minimalist and elegant. She did the makeup exactly the way I wanted even the saree draping was apt. I am so happy with the way I looked in person and in photos. Gargi aims to understand and cater to the needs and wants. She has sophisticated sense of beauty, style and judgement that all brides want a style that truly withstand the passage of time. Thanks so much Gargi. To all the brides, trust Gargi and let her take the lead.

While on the hunt for a makeup artist, I was recommended Gargi by a friend, and can still recall on how we connected over the very first conversation, where we agreed, that good make-up is not lightening one's skin tone & about how important it is to retain your natural features. Being a tamil iyer bride, there was a certain traditional & earthy look I was going for. Gargi understood my fear of not wanting to be over the top dolled-up. It was this understanding of what a client wants and respecting their requirement along with bringing her creative flair on board, that really worked for us. Gargi was my MUA for both my events, reception & muhurtham. Absolutely loved how both the looks turned out, though the evening reception is now my personal favourite. It's a pre requisite for an artist to be good at what they do, but her attention to finer & humane details is what makes Gargi stand out. Highlights from my interaction with her: Professional- Be it the trial at her home, or the final sessions, thoroughly professional. Approachable, skilled & use of good quality products. She called me a week later asking if I was satisfied with the look we achieved. From the start to end, you know that you're working with someone genuine. Punctual- She landed at the venue at 4 30am to start the makeup at 5 am. She was essentially my alarm clock :D Warm person- Despite being sleep deprived & stressed during the ceremony, having her around was a great way to calm down & let go, knowing your face was in good hands. So, brides-to-be, you've arrived at the right place. Drink enough water & allow Gargi do her magic. You'll have a fabulous experience, just like I did :)

All brides want to look absolutely stunning on their wedding day, but finding the right makeup artist who understands your makeup brief is very very hard. I scouted for makeup artists in Bangalore and most of them were either too busy to return my calls/emails or had a set look predefined for me.As a Catholic bride, I was very particular that I wanted a natural classy look and not a very glamorized 'Bollywood' look as seen on Hindu and Muslim brides. My experience with Gargi ,thankfully, was very relaxing and not at all stressful. I met Gargi for a trial, where we discussed my hair and makeup brief and she went about showing me my look as well as options to enhance it. What I like about Gargi is that she listens, doesn't push you to try anything that you're not accustomed to, and she lets you experiment up until the level of your comfort.Case in point being my initial apprehension about wearing false eye leashes, but now I'm so glad I did because it made me feel and look like a glamorous star from the forties and fifties. She is exceptionally skilled with mixing cosmetics for a natural look and is a perfectionist.You will realize your face is in very good hands.She uses very good makeup brands that are long lasting, comes equipped with her entire makeup kit(in case you decide to change your color palette), and personal favorite is that she came on time, was well prepared and hygienically maintains her makeup, brushes and sponges, which is a big plus point for people like me who are particular about hygiene.She was also very receptive to changes that were communicated prior to the wedding date, and accessible on phone and whatsapp . Overall, I was very happy with my makeup experience with Gargi,everyone said I looked good, and I have never felt more beautiful than I did that day. Gargi, Thank you is too small a phrase to express how grateful I am to you for my look on my wedding day.

Gargi did my makeup for my sister's wedding. She did a wonderful job! She did my makeup based on a photograph I had found off the internet and it turned out beautiful. Gargi is also receptive to feedback so if you want to change something here and there, she's perfectly fine with it. She uses good quality products and my makeup lasted for the entire function. I received several compliments on my look thanks to her. I highly recommend her. She's got skills! ;)

Wonderful work by Gargi!!! So natural and appropriate for function looks she gives to people and people starts loving themselves!!!! It doesn't look like make up sometimes that's what I have felt personally... She puts herself in client through creativity with undying enthusiasm and caring!!! Keep it up Gargi!

Gargi is a thorough professional and wonderful human being. I was based in Mumbai while my wedding was in Bangalore. Despite speaking with quite a few Blore MUAs, I wasn't convinced with their pricing/professionalism/products. At the recommendation of my close friend who is a MUA herself, I finally hired Gargi to do my wedding hair and make up and it was the best decision I made. I met her 2 months in advance for the trial wherein she used MAC products, and I was very pleased with the results. Even before meeting, she asked me for photos of the gown, the look I was trying to achieve, the length of my hair and so on. On the wedding day, she was absolutely professional and arrived before time, did a splendid job with my make up and hair, and all my friends and relatives were very happy with the job. She accompanied me to the reception and once again did a great job with my saree draping and change of makeup and hair. She even ensured that I stayed calm through the proceedings. Thanks to Gargi I now have a wonderful wedding album for life! I would definitely recommend her for her services.
