Nandini! She did an amazing job as my makeup artist! She dressed me up for all my functions..and made me look like a princess! One of the most vital needs for a bride who is going crazy in her wedding functions is to have a makeup artist who is calm and can work well along with all the stuff that is happening around the bride! And Nandini's nature is very very accomodating in all aspects! Since the initial stages of wedding planning She discussed looks and hairstyles keeping in mind my various outfits and functions She booked various haristylists according to the hairstyle we planned. Confirmed all venues and times and also arrived on time! Was very very cooperative with everything that came up! Nandini was very professional and well planned in her approach. During my trial she suggested some tips for better skin and hair. I'm very thankful to her for that! Now let's come to the most important part The Makeup!!!! Her makeup was totally amazing! 1. Let me start with the eyes They were my favourite part Nandini's eye makeup stands out from all the other makeup artists out there It's fabulous! Though i've been super scared of eye lash curlers and false eye lashes and basically just anything on my eye, she was very patient with me and managed to do amazing eye makeup inspite of all my 'nakhras' 2. My skin is very sensitive..and she chose products accordingly. Inspite of four days of continuous functions and makeup, my skin continued to glow and did not react. 3. She ensured i look the best of my natural self! She did put enough makeup for me to not look washed out by the end of the funtions, but at the same time perfect for me to look my very own self! Her makeup is what the bride requires combined with what the bride truly is! 4. Texture The texture of her makeup is just perfect! Flawless and natural, and a touch of blush for the princess look! 5. A correct product and shade of lipstick is very important for a bride to look her besst throughout the event. And she chose just that! 6. Last but not the least, Though she's a makeup artist She has amazing knowledge regarding hair styling too! Her inputs during my hair styling played a major role in my overall look! Thank you Nandini for making the most memorable days of my life even more memorable! I love looking back at the pictures and videos and admiring my self haha! Honestly, i'm very satisfied with how i looked on the most important day of my life! And not just met, everyone around me feels the same too! I've got a lot of compliments! And i'll forever be grateful to you!

Nandini Advani MUA is one of the fine talents in the makeup & grooming industry and has excelled exceptionally with her technique in just a very short span. Her dedication towards the art of beauty/ makeup is phenomenal as she keeps herself abreast with trends - international & Indian. Her forte i.e. bridal makeup ranges from simple to astonishing transformations that is sure to make any bride beam with beauty on the most important day of her life. I have personally been groomed by her on a few occasions with people wanting the know the person behind my beautiful transformation. There is so much ease working with her as she pays attention to what you're looking for & gives you just the right look you deserve. To all the women out there "If there is one person who can bring out the beautiful you, it has to be Nandini Advani :* :)

Nandini has done a brilliant job as my make up artist. Being very professional, yet a down to earth personality she has done this job with a lot of patience! :p I had 8 functions and she gave 8 different looks which was very difficult! she believed that I will look fabulous in a particular hairstyle/makeup which I thought probably wouldn't suit me.. But she was right I must say! with a flawless makeup, Nandini, you have helped me look perfect in my fairy tale wedding!! Thank you!! :)

Nandini’s work proved that I made a right choice when I had finalised her as my make up artist for my engagement and wedding. Both the looks were completely different just like what was discussed. Time frame management was also spot on. What I also appreciated was her reverting back to me informing me about the extra money I had paid her by mistake in between the chaos of photographers and guests; this just showed her good work ethics.

Nandini is by far one of the best makeup artists in Bombay. She is very professional in her work. I still remember on my wedding day she was infact there at the location before time. Also there were sudden unforseen problems with the blouse of my lehenga which made me very panicky. I still remember how she took care of the situation with her positivity which gave me confidence that things will get sorted and made me really calm and composed. The make up done by her was superb. It exceeded all my expectations. The kind of products she used were excellent. It wasnt overdone at all that you generally see in the case of every other bride. Her forte is that she enhances the natural features of her brides through makeup making them look very elegant.i would recommend nandini to all the brides out there. Apart from her excellent makeup skills she has a very professional , warm, light hearted and patient personality which makes it all the more good value for money. Thank you so much nandini for making my wedding makeup a dream come true , more than what I had always imagined since my childhood. Keep up the good work. Wish you loads of luck and success.

Nandini is a delight to work with. Punctual, efficient and extremely warm. I was happy with my natural look for my Mehendi. Her accompanying hairstylist, Mini, also does a fab job!

Nandini did my makeup for my sangeet day and I wish I had retained her for all of my wedding events! She was fantastic to say the least. She takes care of every minute detail on your face and also explains what she is doing, so you know you are in professional experienced hands. Literally every single person complimented me on my look. I can't thank Nandini enough for the fabulous job done!

After going through so many profiles in wed me good for make up artist for my big day i finally chose Nandini Advani. Picture references, ratings and reviews really helped me shortlist. I was very specific with the south Indian bridal look I wanted and Nandini completely understood my requirements. A through professional with plethora of knowledge about Make-up, grooming, saree draping and hairstyle. She made me look absolutely flawless. Hairstyle and saree was on point. She will not compromise on anything if you have a certain look in mind and will definitely exceed your expectations. The reactions and compliments I received :) wow!! am still basking on that afterglow. Over and above her profession she is an extremely warm person. Admist the wedding chaos she remained unfazed and kept me calm as well. If you have Nandini for any of your event just let her do her job and see the magic.

Nandini did my makeup for the two days of wedding. She did a lengthy consultation, followed up regarding outfits and put us in touch with a great hair stylist as well. She was punctual, extremely considerate of my taste and very open about what worked and what didn't for my skin. Overall, I was in great hands and would recommend her to anyone for a variety of occasions.
