The Power of Powdering: Tamanna Rooz

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.

Tamanna Rooz

There aren’t too many names that pop up in one’s head if one’s thinking of bridal makeup in the city – and Tamanna Rooz happens to be among the top of the list. After having graduated from the London School of Makeup, she has now opened her own academy in order to change the style of education in this field.

Purely driven by passion, this lovely lady works round the clock only to have her clients walking out with a smile. Here’s more from her…

What made you pick this career?

Honestly, I was an artist at heart since childhood. Painting was my first love and I would spend hours being around cosmetic counters. But professionally it all started around 7 years ago. I made people feel good with my makeup and that in return, made me feel good. Now it is an unbelievable passion where I feel incomplete if I do not do one makeup a day.

Must have makeup tools…

A Shu Uemera eyelash curler, Trish McEvoy kajal and my Osis hair spray.

What is the reason you work?
I work as a Makeup-Artist because I feel it’s my calling …

Motto you live by?
To give wings to the talent around me.

Do you work for passion or money?
I would today say it’s pure passion. I feel, there are four phases in the life of an any professional: one is being recognised so you work for people to know you for your craft, then comes money where you enjoy the power of money as it gives you a sense of security. Third is when you have enough recognition and money, so you crave for fame. Then comes the fourth, which is where I am. I have kind of achieved what my initial goals were and now what excites me is to give back. I want every woman to enjoy this ride that I have had and hence I’m enjoying being a teacher. Hence the answer is Passion.
