my story

About me

Hi, I’m Nilu (pronounced knee-loo) - a BABTAC certified professional makeup artist, brow threading and tinting expert.

Originally from the island of Fiji, and living in Maynooth, Co. Kildare - I travel all over Dublin, Kildare, Meath and Wicklow for event and wedding makeup artistry.

My speciality is makeup for Asian Indian (Hindu) and Muslim weddings, which have a lot of bright intense colours, creating very different looks and styles from the traditional white dress we’re used to in Ireland.

So there’s a few things we need to think about for this style of wedding makeup:

make-up just for you

My Process

So there’s a few things I need to think about for this style of wedding makeup:

Eyes

Before I start to think about makeup, I have to prepare brows and lashes. I offer threading to all my brides a few days before the wedding, and if you want extra lash length with more volume, I can do a one-by-one mink application at the same time.On the day I'll add some drama by perfectly painting on shape-enhancing flicks with gel liner and fine brushes, then adding bold colour with eyeshadow to complement your costume.

Skin

The key is to create a flawless, natural looking complexion by focusing on building the base with very light layers of primer and foundation, using blotting paper to remove moisture between each application.Then I create a perfect photo finish by carefully applying concealer below the eyes, and add drama with highlights to the cheekbones and temples. I lightly powder to ensure the t-zone stays matte under flash photography, and finish with setting spray so your makeup stays in place ALL day and night.

Lips

To get a balanced overall look, lips are done last after you’ve fully dressed and put on your jewellery. Asian wedding costumes use bold colours with bright yellows, deep greens and scarlet reds, so you need to wear strong colour on the lips that pops.A glossy lip finish will complement your smooth, matte complexion and create extra highlighting for the camera. I layer and compress the lip colour to keep it in place, then dust translucent powder around the lips to prevent feathering.

Whether your desire is to be naturally elegant or stunningly glamorous,

I promise to create a look that beautifully enhances your best features and works in perfect harmony for your wedding.
