TOIFA -DUBAI 2016 (My experience as a MAKEUP ARITST )
Glamorous celebrities, amazing protocols, glittery dresses with a fine selection of stone and crystals wrapped around them walking on the red carpet of Bollywood’s biggest awards, TOIFA – DUBAI 2016. Yes! I witnessed it all and my special thanks to ZHAUS who gave me an opportunity to be a part of their wonderful team and who happens to be an exclusive STYLING partner of TOIFA – DUBAI 2016.
Makeup is my obsession. It requires a lot of perfection and indeed a lot of creativity. We all try to be best, in order to achieve the best! Indeed, my experience at TOIFA – DUBAI 2016 was something I always thought achieving. Let me share my wonderful experience with you guys!!
TOIFA – DUBAI 2016 (RAMP WALK – JUMEIRA BEACH HOTEL)
DAY 1 – MARCH 17TH 2016
Just Imagine a Crazy! Busy Day with loads of Models and Celebrities around you! Over 30 Models + Designers + Show Stoppers + Singers (Divided by) 2 Makeup Artist only = A lot of pressure yet worth taking. It was a theme based makeover! Nude Eyes with Winged Liner, defined highlight cheeks followed by glossy nude lips. Sounds challenging yeah? All of them needed to be ready for a Ramp Walk and we were given less than 5 hours to get the job done. Let me point you all that getting more than 30 people ready in 5 hours are good enough and any makeup artist with a good speed and practice can do that! However, here in this case speed along with extra PERFECTION was required, as we were giving the makeovers to the world’s hottest superstars of Bollywood. (Salute to all the team of ZHAUS for a great team work.)
Being a freelancer, I simply focus on getting a job done within a decided time period. Hence, I prefer, 1 client at a time enabling me to get the job done in a desired manner. However, at TOIFA – DUBAI 2016; I have learned through ZHAUS, how to deal with tremendous amount of clients within a short period of time, yet with a great PERFECTION! I also had a wonderful experience to work with the best team members of ZHAUS.

DAY 2 – MARCH 18TH 2016
Day was quite busy as well however there were a lot more makeup artist available hence the pressure of work was equally distributed .i dolled up some models ,celebrities and singers .and some how I enjoyed more this time as I get to spent more time on an individual as compare to the first day .Not only this I got to know that Mr Chunky Panday still a very humorous person who got stuck in the elevator did not know how to get to 36 floor hence we have made him learnt that he simply needed to punch the card on the censor of the elevator and press 3 and 6 . This would take him to the 36 floor how simple was that 😛
