A lot of times it so happens that a particular makeup artist is very good and well known, so much that we go to them because someone had advised us. However, when the make up is done and the final result comes out, though we look pretty and all, yet somehow it doesn’t suit well to our personality- we feel that something is just not going well with our personality, maybe the hair have been made into a puff which doesn’t go well with our face or maybe it is the jewellery that is too heavy and doesn’t compliment our otherwise innocent childlike face as well. Though to others we look pretty and the makeup well enhances the overall look, yet the glow in the personality, the individuality which should have been there doesn’t come out so well.. A lot of times trouble comes in the bridal haven because instead of the main owner because of whom the salon or bridal makeup artistry provider was chosen, it is the assistants who are doing the makeup. Well, one could say that they are equally trained as well but the kind of work that a maestro could have done, definitely the assistants cannot. The solution thus lies in choosing someone who would do your makeup themselves, just the way that you would have expected. Puja Thakkar, an experienced and established bridal makeup artist based out of Mumbai is one such.
The brands Puja uses include (but are not limited to) MAC, Anastasia and Kryolan among others. Her specialisation lies in
Her standard bridal packages are inclusive of (other than the makeup), hair styling of choice, draping, nail polish change, makeup extensions and false eyelashes.

Puja also offers a paid trial of the services should that be required and in case the booking is made post the trial, the value for the trial is adjusted with the overall package cost.

I had a amazing experience with Puja & her team for my wedding. I had seen her work in a friends wedding & decided to go ahead with her for my the day. Puja & her team are very professional, on time, organised, & exactly understood my brief for my both the looks. Puja & her team did a fantastic job on my look by keeping it very minimal just the way I expected it to be, also helping my mom get her look ready. Thank you so much Puja & her team. Highly recommended. 😊

A friend or mine suggested Puja and I am so glad I took that suggestion. She did an amazing job with my bridal look. As a Christian bride I didn't want any loud make up or bright colours so she made sure she got the idea of what I wanted and what would kind of look would be best with the dress I was wearing. She's easy to talk to so the make session was fun and not to forget everyone complimented me on nailing the perfect bridal look. Having a good make up artist is really important so that you look the best version of yourself. I looked good I felt good and I absolutely enjoyed my wedding day. To all the Brides looking for a make up artist Puja is your perfect choice you will not regret anything.

Puja did a brilliant job for me! She travelled to the not-so-east-to-locate venue at brink hours and was there before time! She patiently waited for all the chaos to end that could happen right before I started getting ready. She readily got on her toes and did her magic! I got tremendous compliments from all the guests and family members as well as non-attendees of the function. Both, the wedding look and the reception look were dreamy! Amazing and highly recommended for your big day!

Puja and her team dolled me up for my big day and I was extremely impressed by the team effort. Puja was very well versed and worked exactly around my hair and makeup requirements. For someone who barely wears any makeup, I was concerned about it turning out too loud, but Puja ensured that she worked around enhancing my natural skin tone instead of slapping unnecessary layers. Her team was equally hands-on and did not compromise on creating my desired final look despite having a short gap between two events. They also did a fantastic job with my mother’s makeup and sister’s hair. I can vouch for their service and highly recommend Puja and her team for your big day ☺️☺️

It is every bride's biggest dream to look as dolled up with the touch of subtlety and a sense of natural tone on their big day!. I was a bride from Kerala who had her engagement in Navi Mumbai and was quite new to the city to know any makeup artists. One of my friend had done her reception makeup with Puja and through her i got her contact. Of all the things that went well on my big day , Puja doing my makeup was by far the top of the list. I had a very specific look in my mind which emphasized on subtlety and Puja blew my mind with her work! She nailed my south indian look to such sheer perfection that even to this day i keep getting calls praising how i looked on that day. She patiently listened to all my requests and kept reassuring me that she will redo the whole makeup If i felt it wasn't what I had in mind. There was a small issue where my flowers for my hair was missed out while arranging and Puja was the one who called up her florist and got flowers arranged for me. To all the bride's who may stumble on my review, you can 100% trust her to let her do her magic on you!. Her makeup is subtle yet elegant that you would find it difficult to not steal occasionally glances of yourself in the mirror. She also gets extra points for being extremely punctual and kind and for being such an approachable person.

Thank you Puja for all the valuable efforts you took for making my wedding moments beautiful :) Puja was so calm to explain me everything in detail about all the Bridal makeup services she offered, even when our collaboration was not confirmed. She understood my requirements of going in for subtle glowing look for my wedding and reception well. She even made me comfortable to wear lenses for the first time in my life on my wedding day!! Really Puja, words aren’t enough to thank you for making me feel special and for enhancing my happiness.

Very happy with puja and her team. I hired her services for my engagement and wedding ceremony. I saw her work in my friend's wedding which I liked and went ahead for my wedding as well. Puja and her team are very professional , on time and well organised, she understood what I wanted and did incredible job. Everyone loved her work. Keep up the good work and all the best 👍
