Monsoon Salon Collaborates with Vidya Tikari
Monsoon Salon & Spa has collaborated with Vidya Tikari, one of the most-sought-after makeup artists in India. She will be the face of makeup at Monsoon now. As an expert, she will train, strategise and look after day to day operations at Monsoon’s spacious nine outlets across Delhi-NCR to make the service a standardised one in terms of quality, verity pricing etc.
Known for her professionalism and versatility, Vidya is an expert in managing fashion week madness to wedding season rush. She has also created stunning and exquisite looks for Bollywood celebrities like Madhuri Dixit, Sushmita Sen, Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone, etc. for over two decades. With subtle yet sure strokes, she can take you into completely different realms — from smoky to well-defined, understated to high drama.
Born in Calcutta, now Kolkata, Vidya comes with over two decades of experience in the makeup industry. Though she grew up in Papua Guinea, where her father had moved for work, she was very focused about her future career: Makeup artist. As Vidya puts it in her own words, ‘ever since I was 5 years old I knew I wanted to do something related to makeup’.
Vidya moved back to India in 1991 with her family and soon started practicing full time as a makeup artist. Since then, it was never looking back for the prolific artist.
Recognizing her talent, Vidya Tikari Studio was chosen to glam up all the Grid Girls at the first Indian Grand Prix event. It was also selected to do the makeup and hair-styling at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Delhi Commonwealth Games 2010. She and her team did the same for about 9,000 performers, a feat acknowledged in the Limca Book of Records 2011.
That’s not all. Vidya has also worked with every major photographer starting from Prabuddha Das Gupta to Bharat Sikka, and designer from Tarun Tahiliani to Suneet Varma. Her work also appears in all leading fashion and lifestyle magazines.
