A Message from HOD sales from SetMyWed

My mother has been my icon of strength! Right from my childhood, my mother has been the biggest source of inspiration. It is through her I imbibe virtues like strength and perseverance. She taught me the fact that there is absolutely no alternative to discipline.

My leadership style has been honed over a while and is a culmination of these learnings. I believe communication is the cornerstone for an organization’s success and thus the leadership mantra that I adhere to is to keep a clear communication channel with the team I work with. Constructive feedback plays a vital role in the growth of an employee and thus by proving this form of guidance, I am trying to nurture the young impressionable minds and leaders of tomorrow.

Being Passionate and a Never Give Up attitude is the key to success. You have to be passionate about what you do, feel the purpose and when you set to achieve a goal, don’t give up. Life will throw challenges at you, you will make mistakes. It is important to accept and learn from them and never give up! And always remember if you are different you will stand out 🙂

“In whatever you do, you’re not going to stand out unless you think big and have truly original ideas. That comes from tapping into your creativity, not obsessing over what everyone else is doing.”

Your message to women on women’s day

Every woman is beautiful in her way. Her soul is filled with emotions and is full of happiness. It makes her unique from the rest. It doesn’t matter what your age is, your color is or your shape is. All we have is a unique story of our own to tell. We are a dynamic mixture of all sorts of things.

So be bold; be sensual! Forget all the sorrows and be the best version of yourself.

 

Garima Baranwal Makeup Artist

How did you start working? – Makeup and beauty was always my passion since I entered college. In my college days, I started to learn the basics of these through the internet, later, I joined a salon in my hometown where I started learning and practicing the basic concepts of makeup. However, in between, I got married and a year later had a baby. I devoted the initial few years to take good care of my baby but the candle of Makeup always remains ignited deep within me. Once my baby turned 5 years, I had decided to start the makeup again. A few years ago, I got myself professionally trained and certified as a Makeup artist and started practicing as a freelance Makeup Artist. Since then, I have dolled around 200 brides to their aesthetic best on their special day and the journey continues to progress…

Your difficulties in starting your journey and turning Points

It is never an easy job to start your career at a stage when you have a family to take care of. Initially, things look quite difficult as I have to enter an already competitive market where people don’t want to risk their special day with a lesser-known artist. For the initial few weeks I don’t have any work and I just saw other makeup artists doing a series of brides.

However, as said, if you have passion, enthusiasm, and patience, you can turn things around. Slowly, I got my first bridal, then 2nd, then 3rd, and so on. I always prefer to take only 1 bridal in a day as I intend to do my best to make that day special for her. In Makeup, it’s always quality who wins.

6 your achievements – I was awarded as ‘ Best Makeup Artist in Chandigarh Tricity’ by Bollywood celebrity ‘ Urvashi Rautella’.

 

Your message to women on woman’s Day

My message to all pretty women is to never let the candle of your passion to stop, keep it always ignited in your heart. There is no age or time to start anything new just what you want counts. We all have a family to support but it’s the job of the family too to support us in achieving our passion. Just we need to keep progressing inch by inch to our passion and never stop till we realise it.

 

Makeovers By Zeel 

How did you start working?

Pursuing a creative career was my downright instinct and was imbibed in the bones. And as much as I wasn’t interested in working 9-5, it was solely the reason for my motivation to do something different.

My vision is to reinstate every woman’s confidence through my Make-up & Hair artistry……

Make-up is not just a profession, it is my compassion, which defines being ‘ZEEL SHAH’. Dolling up women for their special days is my ultimate definition of success.

With a mission to add charm to every woman’s elegance, I have wandered tirelessly to be able to master the artistry to turn my brides into the epitome of spellbound beauty. My 6 years of enthralling experience as a PRO Make-up & Hair Artist has facilitated me further to aspire for creating diverse yet perfect looks for my clients.

I believe in accentuating the natural beauty of a bride and letting her shine in her truest form. I help the bride express herself through her makeup whether she prefers more of an elegant and subtle look or an imperial and bold look. I try to set your heart ablaze with happiness and joy over the spectacular makeup look created for your gorgeous face!

Your difficulties in starting your journey and turning points.

When it comes to having a career as a makeup artist, most people would think that it is as simple as painting a face and money would naturally come in. Though that is true, having a consistent face to paint is another challenge in a career as a makeup artist.

I started my career as a makeup artist at the age of 20 along with my studies. This was also one of the difficulties I had so had to cope up with my studies and work simultaneously. I completed my master in Business Administration.

After completing my studies I moved to Mumbai.

So coming from a small town to Mumbai, there lied another difficulty as there were many stumbling blocks on my way to success as there are already plenty of talented individuals competing in this arena.

But as they say, Mumbai is the city of dreams, and moving to Mumbai was the turning point in my life as I got many opportunities to work and learn from the best in the industry.

Your achievements –

After completing my make-up course, I have strived day-night to build up my in-depth make-up knowledge, styling tact’s, different beauty strokes. And to further hone my hand better in Make-up, I have learned styling perfection from the various world-renowned artist: Mr. Marvin Guedes(Brazil), Kamilla Teixeira(Brazil), Seema Jerajani (Mumbai), Michelly Palma, and many other International Makeup educators.

Now as a freelancer professional, I am involved in numerous roles such as makeup designer, makeup and hair consultant, idea creation to makeover rendering artist, resulting in a well-formulated makeover solution. My forte now lies in bridal makeup, creative makeup, fashion makeup, party makeup, celebrity makeup, etc.

My 6 years of enthralling experience as a PRO Make-up & Hair Artist has facilitated me further to aspire for creating diverse yet perfect looks for my clients.

Your message to women on woman’s day 

Believe it or not, the world without women is incomplete. It is not because they are a key to new lives, rather, are the only being who l can make anything possible.

To all the women out there, I would like to say that each day is a challenge and each day is also an opportunity. Grab onto the opportunities and work hard on them and I believe success is not far away.

 

Makeover Destination by Priya

How did you start working?

I am an engineer by education and worked for multiple IT companies for several years. Until a point reached when I wanted to do something that involves creativity and imagination. I loved getting ready and also helping others in doing the same. My friends and family used to take my advice and I loved helping them. That drew the starting line for me.

Your achievements 

Turning my whole career path 180 degrees was not easy. Also, there is already a lot of competition in this field and there are so many established makeup artists in Delhi especially. But I decided to do what I love in the way I wanted.

And everyone is different and unique in their own way so I believe everyone will get their share of work if they keep working for it.

I consider each of my brides as an achievement for me, as I spend a lot of time curating each look personally.

Your message to women on woman’s Day …!

We ladies are thriving in a male dominating society, this speaks for itself a lot about our hard work and determination.

The only thing I want to tell every woman is to support and help any other woman you can. Stop being judgemental to others as there is already lots we need to handle.

 

Decor by Vedika 

How did you start working?

As a kid I was very much interested in drawing and used to draw everyone’s project’s, other classmates and teachers used to make fun of me sometimes saying this girl is gonna fail.. but who cares when you love to make things beautiful… later

I’ve started working as an admin in a german MNC and used to take care of all the events and decorations there, one fine Diwali event and I got a kick that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. These colors, flowers, and beautifying things are what give me a content feeling.

this is what makes me happy…

Your difficulties in starting your journey and turning points

Talking about my journey, surely isn’t an easy one but an experimental one, as a women womb to tomb it’s always a struggle to stand out and work without being judged by society, working late at night, being out of for a couple of days and working on sites, society is so gonna judge your character and morals when you belongs to a middle class, it’s never easy to fit in where I wanted to stand out, my passion towards wedding decor industry kept me going. I’ve failed multiple times, my first startup failed very badly and I was heartbroken, it took me a couple of years to get back to normal and start again.

I am thankful to my clients, friends, and family who believed in me and supported always where I couldn’t believe in myself…

Your achievements 

as far as I am concerned about my achievements, I’ve only considered my clientele as my achievements…

My happy clients and their valuable feedback is something that matters to me the most. I always want to make every event a memorable one for my clients and for myself as well…

A satisfied and happy client is the milestone.

Your message to women on woman’s day

-to the wonderfully amazing ladies out there, it’ll be a tough and hell of a ride, but trust me.. it’ll be worth it… keep hustling…

Wishing you a very happy women’s day to all the amazing women. we are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world…

Be yourself, Be Happy…

A basket full of love
