A local makeup artist is helping your beauty shine with her wedding makeup and new tutorial classes. Read on for more.
Wedding days are stressful between hair, makeup, photos, and the celebration. However, they don’t have to be with Shivali Gaba Makeup Artistry.
Shivali Gaba Makeup Artistry offers makeup services for brides, but it’s about much more than just doing makeup for business owner Shivali Gaba.
“Often wedding days are stressful, rushed, and all about timelines,” she says. “But for the 30-40 minutes that the bride is in my chair, my goal is to bring her calm and make her feel like the most beautiful woman, who is about to have the best day of her life.”
This small makeup business takes on 30 clients a year and is headed by Gaba herself. She’s been the one-woman show behind it all for 7 years and aims to make a small difference for every woman she crosses paths with. “I have been and always will be a very hands-on artist,” she adds.
While her heart belongs to wedding, Gaba says there’s nothing more that she loves than teaching women how to do makeup themselves so they have the tools they need to feel their best whenever, wherever.
That’s why she started offering lessons and classes on Sundays, which can be paired with makeup merchandising.
“I will spend time with you at Ulta or Sephora to play with products to find what works best for you,” she explains. “This includes foundation matching, basic skincare consults, and technique training.”
She says that what makes her business unique is that she doesn’t look for the imperfections in clients. “I see beautiful smiles and glimmering eyes and all the things that make a woman beautiful,” she says. “This helps me focus on what is amazing about you and highlight that.”
Makeup is personal, and Gaba helps the beauty of all clients shine with her “your kind of beautiful” approach that she provides.
In addition to makeup tutorials and consults, she also offers pro courses for aspiring makeup artists.
All-in-all, she wants to help everyone shine – whether they’re the client or the artist. She says that anyone who is interested in one-on-one time or getting a group of girls together for an evening of bonding in a masterclass can reach out to her directly via email.
