Born and raised in Delhi, Amrita Arora and Sonia Kaur are makeup artists who stated their company Makeup Artistry by Amrita and Sonia. Their journey so far has been splendid and unimaginable at the same time. Nobody thought that once the star athletes of school time, commerce graduates and later interior designers, would end up being successful makeup artists now. The credit goes to their dad and their husbands who knew that somewhere they had creative hand and talented mind working actively. Thus, they supplied the much-needed push and encouraged them to do something new. Finally, they both end up being makeup artists.
Inspired by international makeup artists, they started off by watching YouTube and starting following many artists like Jefree Star, Nikkie, Saleha Abbassi, Jacklyn hills, Marimaria makeup, and many more.
They believe that it has been a smooth journey so far hope that it will continue to remain smooth sailing ahead. At the same time, they learned international style makeup to create fusion. So naturally to provide the best of the facilities, they wanted the products to be international. That’s when they encountered a major challenge. The challenge was to figure out where to get these products from like makeup forever, Estee Lauder, Giorgio Armani, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Benefit, Jefree Star, the Balm, Urban Decay, etc. And finally, they started importing it from the USA. Sephora too helped and started giving the most desirable makeups to their clients with their gorgeous vanity.
Their goal is to create the best international techniques and makeups are not followed by everyone. They do keep in mind to create a fusion of international as well as Indian, be it makeup, attire or jewellery. These ladies know the latest trends in action
