Hi to all the brides out there who are looking to hire a Makeup Artist for their big day ! You have come to the right choice and this girl is a Miracle. I knew Sukanya through Instagram as me and my friends have been following her since 2 years now. I've always been fascinated with the kind of makeup she does and also her voice always gave me a good vibe at least on Instagram. The day I decided regarding my wedding date, I 1st called up Sukanya and made sure she's available and Instantly paid her the advance so that she reserves the time slot for me. Since our 1st call, Sukanya has been extremely patient and sweet. Since it was a Destination wedding in Goa that too in the month of Jan, I knew i wouldn't get time to have a trial with her as traveling would be difficult just for a trial session and never even got a chance of meeting her face to face. Sukanya understood my concern and made a Video call to know more about me, my skin type, my hair length, and that's how she made sure she discussed the look with me. Just to add to this, she also suggested me some pre-bridal routines to keep my skin healthy and suggested me the cream products ever for which i cannot thank her enough. Though she always took a lot of time to revert back to my Whats app texts, she made sure that she replies atleast in 2-3 days time. I always heard that MUA need atleast 3-4hrs to make a bride ready. But Sukanya is a Magician!!!! On the wedding day, she arrived 20min before the time and made me ready within 2.5 hrs. She used all good International Brands to do my makeup. I got a lot of time to take up all my bridal portraits and pictures with my husband. She managed to keep her calm even during the times all my family entered the room and created a chaos ;P She and her Assistant gave me the perfect look i always desired to have. She made me look like a Star and I couldn't believe that i can ever look so gorgeous. This girl not only did my makeup effortlessly, but also gave me confidence in carrying it. Sukanya ! I would love to Thank you for being my MUA on my big day. Thank you for making me Spectacular in all the pictures and making me feel like a diva on my wedding day. You are not just a Beautiful Artist, you are a Magician and such a humble human being. Your vibes around gave me and my mom a positive aura. You are worth every Penny <3 I would blindly suggest Sukanya over any other Makeup Artist.She is not just a Professional Artist but a kindest soul you can always have on your big day. Wish you a lot of luck in your future and always stay the same as you are.

I am from Chennai, i have no idea about any make up artist from other places. I was getting married at belguam which is close to goa. When I was trying to find make up artist In Belgaum. I really couldn’t find any one from belguam, so after very long research I found Sukanya profile in insta, I though since goa is closer I can opt for her instead flying makeup artist from Chennai. When I looked at her profile I was really excited and I really want to pick her for my wedding. I immediately called her without any hesitation, she was really nice and welcoming in our first conversation, I felt so comfortable and she was also available so I decided to book her. Her rates are also good. I booked her for 2 events for haldi and wedding ceremony. We both discussed about my looks in phone week before my wedding. I really loved her attitude and she gives what you you expect and want for your special day. She was really comfortable and also I really liked her team very fast and passionate. I was really happy with my looks. I will surely recommend her from my friends and family. Very professional and neat. She is one of the best makeup artist I have come across so far. Thank you so much for make me feel special and keep growing and all the best.

My wife chose Sukanya for our wedding makeover. I really can't believe that she looked natural and beautiful at the same time. She received many compliments for her overall bridal look. Definitely recommending Sukanya to others!

Every bride is anxious about her look on her wedding day, and so was I until I had a chat with Sukanya. She understood my look over the call and there was absolutely no need for a trail either. She did a fabulous job of getting me ready on time, not just that she delivered quality within the timeframe and the perfect look as desired. She is a very talented makeup artist, don't think twice before you book her, not just that her rates are decent and the quality of products is excellent and lasted through the day no touch up was even required, I kid you not.

Best decision picking Sukanya for my wedding make up and hair. I'm from London and got married in Goa in Feb 2020 and wasn't able to have any trials so i was really nervous about how my make up and hair would turn out. Sukanya made me feel at ease, she was friendly and reassuring. She used great products and knew exactly what she was doing and i was super happy with both my looks especially my wedding look. I don't normally like bright bold colours but it was suggested by Sukanya and i absolutely loved it! I would 100% recommend :) Thank you once again Sukanya xxx

One of the best decisions I’ve made choosing Makeover by Sukanya. I don’t normally wear make up at all and was nervous choosing a MUA who would know the best for me. Must say this girl is amazing with her skills and confidence. She made me feel look beautiful. I loved everything she did, just what I wanted elegant and natural look. She is worth every bride’s trust for their special day. One of the best highlights of the day! the confidence she gave a person who never worn make up before. Couldn’t thank you enough!!! Highly recommend MUA Makeover by Sukanya

Worst make-up artist ever. My biggest mistake was to choose Sukanya and go ahead with her services especially since I experienced bad attitude from her after I met her to discuss my look in the month of November. Since I didn't know much about make-up I was expecting her to guide me through things instead she asked me why am I so confused. I felt it would be better to get a trial done which she then said she doesn't do trials although when she first sent me her rates before I booked her, trail make-up along with charges for the same were on the list. Anyhow since I felt more comfortable doing a trial I insisted she give me one to which she replied that if I don't have confidence in her work she will give me a trial. She took it personally when in reality I wanted a trial so I can be confident of my look. Also she said she doesn't do a trial for hairstyles. After the trial too she was barely available to discuss the look and what changes I wanted. I was very tempted to change her at that point but considering I had already given her a down payment (Rs. 5000) and paid for trial makeup (Rs. 6000) I felt it would be a waste to change her at this late point only 2 months before my wedding. That was a big mistake and will be a life long regret. The time decided for her to come on my wedding day was 9:30 am. Later she tells me that she has another bride before me and will first send her hairstylist and she will come later. This was not told to me at the time of booking but in the month of November. The hairstylist comes an hour late at 10:30 am. As a bride you expect everything to go smoothly on your wedding day and especially for the people delivering services to be professional. After waking up early on a day which is going to be a long one as a bride I had to sit and wait for them. Totally unacceptable. Then the hairstylist rushes through my hair do but there is still no sign of Sukanya. After my hair is done I had to wait half an hour twiddling my thumbs waiting for Sukanya to arrive. When we tried calling her she said she will be there soon and later she stopped answering. She finally reached at 11:55 and I started my make-up so late. Moreover she didn't apologize for her tardiness. She in fact justified herself saying that if we do the makeup early it won't stay for long. When in reality it's the bride's choice of when she wants her makeup to be done. n she wants her makeup to be done. Also she didn't remember anything about the makeup look done at the trail and I had to keep reminding her of what to do. After the makeup was done I didn't even get a chance to look at myself properly in the mirror as I was so late and so stressed out cause of her. Thanks to her my entire schedule got delayed and I was unable to take the lovely photos I had wanted on my wedding day and neither was I able to give the video message for my husband to be cause of her. After hiring an expensive photographer, videographer and booking a sea view room at Cidade de Goa for the photo shoot I was unable to get the time to do it all thanks to her. She has been the most unreliable, unprofessional person I have ever worked with. Also the person with the most attitude. Also since the hairstylist rushed through my hair do it all started coming apart an hour later and post the church my hair was in a big mess, it looked like a bird's nest. My bridesmaids had to pin it back together and make it look less of a mess. Photos attached below. If any bride is considering taking Sukanya I advise them to proceed cautiously, unless you are okay with an unprofessional make-up artist who has big time attitude and if you are okay going through stress on your wedding day. Lastly I would like to inform all of you out there that Sukanya went to the extent of posting a fake review in my name with a 5 star rating. I have never come across such an unethical person before. When she knew a bad review was coming she tried to put a 5 star review first using my name to confuse people. This is totally immoral behaviour from her. Please beware of the good reviews on her page, they could also be fake like the one she posted by impersonating me which was put up to mislead potential new clients. Check the photo attached to see the fake good review with 5 stars posted by her. After contacting Wedmegood and telling them it is a fake review, Sukanya had to take the review down so you will not find it on her page anymore. Thank you Wedmegood for assisting me with this.

Doll. Princess. Angel. Fairy. These are few of the many compliments that I received on my Sangeet/Engagement and Wedding day. The compliments kept coming even days after the wedding. Sukanya and her team were a blessing to me. My hair and makeup for both days were so much better that what I had hoped for. Sukanya is so professional and comforting. They took care of every little detail that i had in my mind for my hair and makeup. Can’t thank them enough.❤️
