The Power of Powdering: Sandy

Our wedding is one event of our life that we plan to have something that looks like forever. From the wedding shoes to a wedding dress, and more, we want everything to be done flawlessly. We want the perfect venue, food, dress, flowers and makeup, because we want our most awaited day to be special. Isn’t it? I’ve always wondered what the fuss was about when it came to being a bride. You pick an outfit, match your shoes, co-ordinate jewellery, hire a makeup artist and you are good to go. But I was missing the point by a mile, until I lived through my best friend’s wedding! It’s easy to find a makeup artist, but tough to find a skilled and talented makeup artist, who would bring everybody’s attention to the beautiful bride. So whilst you are busy with your wedding preparations, we have put together a list of some of the best makeup artists in Hyderabad, in no particular order – to make your life easier. Know them a little before you make your pick.

Sandy

A creative chameleon, Sandy is a perfect example of ‘all good things come in small packages’. He lives and breathes his craft – no wonder his clients repose blind confidence in him and have never been disappointed. This one-man army is not only known for his impeccable work but also his calm and friendly nature – that just makes him a perfect combination to work with. Read on to know more about this powerhouse of energy.

What made you pick this career?

I have been a dancer since my childhood, so I was more inclined towards makeup and used to do my own makeup. So it was naturally in me.

How do you handle competition?

I believe I have never had competition. I always look up to the best work of the other makeup artists. It could be anyone out there – I draw inspiration from them.

Must have makeup tools…

There was a time when I actually worked on someone with no tools! I used my fingers to create the entire look. But I need to have an angular eyeliner and the lip brush.

Your favorite quote? 

Live and let live.

Motto you live by?

To make a person look beautiful, and have them satisfied and happy with my work.

Why do you work?
Because my love for beauty never dies. I like to enhance the features and make the person beautiful and happy. Creating something beautiful is an art worth pursuing, isn’t it?

Do you work for passion or money?
It definitely has to be passion. No matter what happens, at the end of the day I would like to be satisfied with the work I do and then expect people to feel happy about it. Money is also important but it only comes when you put in all your effort.

Dream celebrity to work with?
I would love to work on people in Bollywood – but that is only possible if I ever leave Hyderabad! (smiles) Given an opportunity I’d work on Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Sridevi Kapoor.
