I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist! Kulsum is definitely the best MUA that Bangalore, and even India, has! She was extremely professional, punctual and so nice. She took all my suggestions and interests in mind, and even tried some new things she had never done before with some of my looks :-). Her prices also were very reasonable and comparable to some of the other MUAs in the city. I highly recommend any bride to go to her for a trial. Trust me - you won't regret it!Source

What Kulsum did was magic. I have always been very conscious of my cheeks and feel like a look really chubby in photos. But not on my wedding day. Every picture felt picture perfect. The way she sculpted my face made me look like a part of a fairytale! Thank you Kulsum!

Kulsum is a very good makeup artist and has a good hand on what she does. She dressed me up for my phera and my reception, and had a senior artist do my make up for the sangeet. I loved her work and the makeup was amazing! Especially the phera. Definitely a 5-star for the phera makeup. For the reception I felt like she rushed it (it was also late so not completely her fault), but I also felt like she was already done for the day. The reason I am giving her a 3.5 is that she does not handle delays well and is not very quick in responding to your messages before the wedding. I have heard about makeup artists giving brides tips to prep and helping them get ready for the big day. Kulsum did not do any of that. I live in the US and there was a lot of time difference that I had to deal with to contact all the vendors for the wedding, and it was very painful to get in touch with Kulsum. One thing that annoyed me the most was, when we booked her for my wedding, she had given me a different write up for charges and on the day of the events she sent me a different write up. She never mentioned delays when I booked her but she did send me a msg when I was a couple hours late for my sangeet make up. I feel like when you have a large scale wedding it is inevitable but to have delays. She charged me about Rs.1500 for every hour, which was at the end of the day fine but the way she kept sending me msgs that there will be a delay charge was literally very frustrating. I think, every person in a wedding related business must value a brides emotions and must deal with few situations (especially delays) very professionally. Also, honesty and transparency about the bills is of uttermost importance. I only wish she handled things more professionally and was nicer with me, when I was the bride and she was there to help me with my makeup!

Kulsum is an amazing make up artist and I love the look she gave me for my wedding and reception. She understands a person's face and accordingly suggests. However my only regret was I had mentioned several times that I am a kerala bride and I would require the gold setting as well, which was done in a very haphazard manner. Her assistant just started putting the chains one on top of the other without any setting, which was quite upsetting but I had no other choice.Had they mentioned before that they did not know how it has to be done I would have taken someone else. But nonetheless atleast the make up compensated for that. Thanks

Being a North Indian I was really scared how my makeup would be in south especially because I don’t do a lot of makeup rather heavy makeup doesn’t suit me, just then someone recommended my sister Kulsum parvez I just saw her work and was amazed by her work she makes her brides look like doll at the wedding. Same happened to me I was praised by everyone on my wedding day my pics have come soooo beautiful, her makeup is sooo natural and nice that u won’t feel cakey or anything in front of your guests. You will look equally gorgeous naturally as you will be in camera. Highly highly recommend her for you big day.

There isn’t enough space to capture all the wonderful work of Kulsum and her team!! I only met Kulsum once before my wedding and I had an excellent trial run done which was so amazing!! Suddenly before my wedding I changed my sari color and never had a chance to meet Kulsum till the day of the wedding. She just looked at the sari and all I said was, “I want a natural elegant look.” And that’s it...she created a magical look that was the showstopper for my wedding!! She also gave me a fantastic hairstyle which was so spectacular and neat the entire day! I loved everything about the way I looked that day! All thanks to Kulsum! She is the sweetest and the most polite person you would ever meet. It’s difficult to find people like that these days. If you ever need a makeup artist, then first you must call Kulsum before anyone else!! Trust me she does magic!! Thank you, Kulsum!! You are the best!!

Kulsum understands a persons face and accordingly does the make up. She doesn't over do it. She's fast. I was very happy with all the looks she gave me. Her eye make up is classy. Overall shes a brilliant person and an even better make up artist.

Kulsum has been an amazing make up artist to work with. She has a great eye for color and her unique but subtle blends were just the combination I wanted. She was very respectful to my needs and when the time came to perform, she responded in sync with my mindset. It was her calm demeanour that made me stress free and I highly recommended this talented young artist!

Flying down to India from Canada for my brother in law's wedding, I was very nervous about who was do my makeup. Kulsum was recommended to me as an exceptional makeup artist. From the moment, I met Kulsum on my trial day and every event after that I was only impressed by her work, level of professionalism, and the warmth she brought. Her attention to detail is impeccable which resulted only in perfection. It's been almost three years from the time I first met her only to return to learn the tricks of the trade through her classes. Wish you all the success Kulsum, you deserve every bit of it!

I had booked Kuslum for my sangeet function in Bangalore.We had a meeting once before the actual function to decide the look for the day (shimmery eyes and messy bun) and I must say it turned out to be exactly like how I had imagined it to be. She did a fab job with both the makeup and the hair.I got a lot of compliments for the look and would recommend her to every bride to be.

Kulsum was such a blessing! Every time I look at my wedding photos, I feel overjoyed and I can't thank her enough. Considering the fact that I was a Christian bride, I was particular that my makeup be subtle and natural and that is exactly what Kulsum made sure as well. She is not just a fantastic makeup artist but also a lovely person. She takes time out to know her brides and their requirements. I would recommend her to any to-be bride. Trust me, you will not be disappointed :)

Kulsum is a fantastic make up artist. I was strongly recommended to hire her for my daughter's wedding and am delighted with my choice. She is super friendly, makes the bride very comfortable and created glam looks (bride and me) for each and every event exactly the way we wanted it. Huge thanks to you Kulsum for making us all so happy.

I am not sure if words can truly express how great I think kulsum is. She exceeded my expectations in every way and went far and beyond. From our first meeting I felt so comfortable with her and I just knew she would be amazing! I decided to book her to stay with me until after the pictures and I have to say it was the best decision I had made. On the day of my wedding she showed up early smiling with excitement! Her bubbly personality and caring nature instantly eased my nerves. She was my best friend of the day. I couldn't have dreamed of anything better than what she did. She is absolutely wonderful and has an amazing talent for what she does! She is a godsend to every bride! I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you kulsum!

<p>Marriage! This one word event in every girls life can send jitters to the most confident of all.. And I was one of them, biggest worry of the Big day for a Bride is nothing but her outlook, her dress, her jewellery and the most important of all is "Makeup" which decides the final look of every bride, from HOW to WOW!! And then I met Kulsum, my saviour, her confidence, her skill, her past record and her pleasing personality, simply made me close my eyes and go with her for the biggest day of my life and guess what, I was right!! She's truly someone who can make anybody's dream turn into reality! Kulsum you are truly a Genius and I could certainly vouch for you even in the deepest of my sleep!! Some would say "worth every penny spent", I would say "worth every minute you spent on me!!"</p>

After 2 months of discussion about the look for my big day with Kulsum, the moment finally arrived where she made me look a stunning bride! I absolutely admire kulsums eye for detail at make up and the patience to ensure perfection to the core. I have been a happy satisfied bride with the way kulsum transformed me. It was a smooth blend of modern make up with the touch of a traditional Muslim bride and kulsum finished it to perfection and the best part is her friendly personality that really made me comfortable to work with her. Keep up the good work kulsum and you got a fan here!

Kulsum understood exactly what I wanted when I asked for a simple, fresh and elegant look for all my wedding events. Always prompt on time, even at 4 am, Kulsum made me look the best on my special days. She is fun and very easy to talk to, which is great when you have to spend two to three hours sitting on a chair, during those tense moments. She helped ease my nerves with fun conversations! Thanks Kulsum!

That's exactly how I felt when I got ready for my reception. Kulsum made me a chic and a funky bride though I was dressed in my traditional kanchivaram silk saree. The ease with which she applies and enhances the make up amazed me. We had discussions about the hair and got the perfect match by the evening. She was very friendly and is a great person to work with. She made my evening tension free. Love you for your attitude and work Kulsum. Keep rocking Sowmya

Kulsum provides a highly professional service and is so creative. Was very pleased with the amazing job that she did of my hair and makeup. She came out to the hotel and was so easy to get along with and made me feel relaxed, got along with my family and friends. On the day my make up was flawless, she is extremely talented and ensures the look matches your face shape. I would highly recommend Kulsum for any bride in the future. In short ??lovely lady to be a part of your special day?

Am a zero makeup person like a total tomboy. Kulsum made sure I looked gorgeous for both my wedding and my reception. For my wedding at 4 pm she gave me a lovely suttle look and for my evening reception she made me glow like an angel, she highlighted my eyes blue as per my dress color and her makeup lasted all night even after my dancing . Definetly recommend her for bridal makeups. No over doo , amazing coverups and very innovative. My hair was done beautifully gave me a disney princess look as per what my friend told, and evening a high tie up look which looked amazing. Thanks for making my wedding memorable Kulsum. Cheers!!!
