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

Puja was my MUA for Engagement and wedding too.On engagement day she dolled me up so gorgeous that she was already confirmed for wedding on my engagement day itself. Also wedding day she made me look so beautiful and elegant. I Would like to mention this she was just having 1/2 hour for my reception look and was so tensed But Puja was so calm and again dolled me in just 1/2 hour. Thank-you Puja and team for all your efforts and kindness.

Absolutely Superb!!! Puja and her team is really good at their work and definitely a professional. We have worked with many make up artist in the past but none of them came close to Puja. I and my mom received many compliments for the make up. We recommend Puja very highly!

Loved her work. She and her team helped me with my makeup for my Engagement party. She did a subtle makeup which looked super clean. Even the hair styling was very neat and tidy. Her entire team is extremely patient and thoroughly know their art. Also what I want to admire the most is how comfortable she made me on my special day, making sure my small requests are taken care. Definitely recommend her work. She can be trusted blindly!

I met Puja almost 3 years back at a Friend's wedding. Back then I was skeptical to get makeover done by anyone, being a Marwari and a Fashion Designer I always knew what I wanted and I was facing challenge to express that to makeup artists. In Puja, after the first look that she did for me at Apeksha's wedding, I was clear she is going to be the one for my wedding. I was instantly in lover with her work! Since Apeksha's wedding, Puja has done multiple looks for me for my roka, my sister-in-law's wedding and my wedding. Apart from me, my entire family is in love with her. What's best and unique about Puja, 1. She gets what you want without even expressing. She will always make you stand out. Not once have I felt that this is inappropriate or not of my choice. 2. I can completely trust her with my family or anyone, infact my Mom being so nit-picky feels safe with her! My Chachi is also someone who hates getting makeover.. but Puja literally made them fall in love with makeovers! 3. I never have to question her integrity with respect to work, money, products, her team, her timing! Everything is just perfect. She and her team are always before time. We end up having extra time to take shots because of her organised skills! On my wedding day, I got dressed up by 3 PM.. and uptil 1 AM in the night my entire looks was intact! I was looking so fresh, the makeup stayed on without any issues, I didnt even have to touch up once. Thats all that a bride needs! For me I always look forward to ocassions so that I can get dressed by her! I am eagerly for waiting for someone to get married in my family.. just to get dolled up by her! And one last thing! she takes away all the stress! and you will find a friend in her who will make things super smooth for you on your d day!!! Wishing you lots of luck Puja!

I had a malayali and tamil brahmin style of wedding. Pooja had an in depth knowledge of the rituals and hence was aware of styling. This helped me a lot. Timing was crucial in our weddings and she was fast and spot on with the details. Her products are good and long lasting. Just ensure you book her in advance otherwise your dates can clash and you will have to compromise.she is a busy MUA.
