Hi, I’m Anita Pillai and I am the founder of Asian Bride Makeup. My sense of style and beauty comes from my mixed heritage. Being a British born Indian with parental influences from vibrant Rajasthan and marital inspirations from the cultural South of India – Kerala, my blend of elegance, heritage and chic have all contributed to the creation of Asian Bride Makeup.
As an International makeup artist and hairstylist, I have a true passion for creating flawless makeup and hair creations. I have enjoyed specialising in bridal, editorial and fashion looks with my love of makeup artistry to deliver trend-setting and chic styles.
As well as working with celebrities and brides internationally, I have been fortunate to be a regular feature in leading wedding magazines such as BRIDES, KHUSH & ASIANA, as well as being featured on Colors Asian TV channel and be the artist of choice for musicians and actresses for their features.
Asian Bride Makeup was created with core values to provide a service for the ‘Everyday Woman’. We want to celebrate all tones and textures of skin, and thrive on giving our clients the feeling of confidence through enhancement of their individual beauty.
We demonstrate passion and professionalism by using pioneering makeup techniques to exceed the standard service. We also endeavour to use safe, ethical and environmentally friendly brands where possible.
Anita Pillai specialises in delivering spectacular wedding makeup and hair, offering a professional stress-free service for all bridal needs. We recognise the potential in every bride and work with her to ensure that she feels like THE most important person on her special day.
We pride ourselves in providing outstanding bridal care, making every bride feel and look amazing, whatever the occasion. At Asian Bride Makeup we appreciate each bride is an individual and we work with her to deliver a lovely natural look whilst keeping a classy and elegant finish.
THE ABM TEAM
Over the years we have trained many women to become talented artists. Some of these artists have joined the Asian Bride Makeup team as freelance artists and provide hair and makeup services for bridal and group bookings.
All of our artists understand our core values and use top branded products to create the magical look that will give the desired finish for their client.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT
After beautifying clients for over 8 years in the bridal make-up and commercial fashion industries, Anita has expanded Asian Bride Makeup to an Academy status and teaches creative makeup & hair artistry, suitable for bridals and fashion bookings.
We are not just an Asian Bridal Academy. In the multi-diverse world that we live in today, we teach our students editorial and bridal looks that would be suitable for both Asian and non-Asian clients. We also encompass key beauty and fashion trends that has influenced what clients ask for and prepare them mentally for becoming freelance artists by providing business knowledge.
