10 Questions

Could you tell us about your hometown and any other places that hold a place in your heart?

Songkhla province holds a special place in my heart, especially my hometown, with its iconic Tinsulanonda Bridge, stretching majestically over the waters. It's a region with beautiful sights like Koh Yor, the serene Samila Beach, the pristine Sai Kaew Beach, and Rat & Cat Island. But beyond my hometown, Phuket holds a unique significance for me. I like the vibrant blend of rich cultural heritage and lively nightlife that characterizes life here.

When did you first move to Phuket and why?

I relocated to Phuket in 2004 to pursue my university degree in beauty and underwent specialized training here.

What inspired your choice of becoming a Hair & Makeup artist?

My journey into the world of hair and makeup artistry started from admiration of various forms of art, but my true inspiration lies in the transformative power of cosmetics and styling. I find joy in the process of enhancing natural beauty and creating unique looks that reflect individual personalities. This fascination with beauty and fashion led me to pursue a career where I could channel my creativity into making people feel confident and beautiful.

How would you describe your beauty philosophy in one sentence?

"Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance" by Coco Chanel. It’s a philosophy that resonates with me and many makeup artists who prioritize enhancing natural beauty rather than masking it with excessive products.

Are there any hair and makeup icons or artists who have influenced your style and approach?

Coco Chanel. Her signature style was characterized by simplicity, timeless elegance, and a focus on practicality.

Can you describe one of your favorite bridal looks you've created?

One of my favorite bridal looks that I've created is a soft smokey eye. It's a timeless and versatile look that adds a touch of drama while still maintaining an air of elegance and sophistication. For this look, I started by prepping the skin with a hydrating primer to create a smooth canvas. Then, I used a lightweight foundation to even out the skin tone and concealer to brighten any areas of darkness. I set the base with a translucent powder to ensure long-lasting wear. Moving on to the eyes, I began by applying a neutral matte eyeshadow as a transition shade in the crease to add depth and dimension. Next, I used a soft charcoal or taupe shade to create the smoky effect, focusing on blending the color seamlessly for a seamless gradient. To intensify the look, I applied a slightly darker shade on the outer corners of the eyes and along the lower lash line, blending it softly to create a cohesive look. I then added a touch of shimmer on the inner corners of the eyes to brighten and add dimension. For the lashes, I curled them before applying several coats of lengthening and volumizing mascara to create full, fluttery lashes. Optionally, false lashes can be added for extra drama. To complete the look, I softly defined the brows and added a hint of color to the cheeks with a natural-looking blush. Finally, I applied a soft nude or pink lipstick to complement the eyes and enhance the bride's natural beauty. The result is a stunning bridal look that enhances the eyes while still looking soft and romantic, perfect for any bride looking for a classic yet modern makeup style on her special day.

What is the most challenging part of your work?

The most challenging part of my work is often creating makeup looks for Indian brides. Indian bridal makeup often involves working with diverse skin tones, textures, and features. It requires careful selection of products and techniques to ensure a flawless and long-lasting finish that complements the bride's unique complexion and facial structure. Also, Indian weddings are grand affairs that often span multiple days and events, each with its own makeup requirements and challenges. From the vibrant colors of the Mehendi ceremony to the opulence of the wedding day, each occasion calls for a distinct makeup look that captures the essence of the celebration.

How do you stay up-to-date with the latest fashion trends?

Staying up-to-date with the latest fashion trends is crucial for any makeup artist, as it helps to keep my work fresh, relevant, and in-demand. I use various digital platforms to stay informed and inspired by the ever-evolving world of fashion e.g. Pinterest and TikTok. Hello Magazine is another excellent source of inspiration, providing me with access to the latest celebrity red carpet looks, editorials, and beauty features. I keep a close eye on celebrity makeup artists' work, as they often set the tone for upcoming trends and innovations in the industry.

Is there any new innovative technique or material that you have recently experimented with?

In my makeup kit, I always ensure to have a couple of must-have beauty products that I rely on for achieving flawless looks. Charlotte Tilbury products are a must in my kit. Charlotte Tilbury is renowned for her luxurious and high-quality makeup formulations that effortlessly enhance natural beauty. From her iconic Magic Cream moisturizer to her versatile eyeshadow palettes and long-lasting lipsticks, her products never disappoint. Additionally, La Prairie skincare products are another essential of my kit. I rely on La Prairie's skincare products to prep the skin before makeup application, ensuring a smooth and radiant canvas for flawless makeup application. Their serums, moisturizers, and eye creams are particularly effective at nourishing and revitalizing the skin, providing a perfect base for makeup that lasts throughout the day.

What advice do you give to brides when choosing their wedding day hair and makeup?

When advising brides on their wedding day hair and makeup, I always suggest considering the weather and the atmosphere of the wedding venue. It's important to choose styles that will withstand the elements and complement the overall theme of the wedding. For example, if it's going to be hot and humid, opting for a hairstyle that can withstand heat and humidity, such as an updo or braided style, is advisable. Additionally, brides should consider the overall atmosphere and theme of their wedding when selecting their hair and makeup looks. The style of the wedding dress, the venue, and the time of day all play a significant role in determining the most suitable hair and makeup styles. For instance, a romantic, outdoor garden wedding may call for soft, ethereal makeup and loose, flowing curls, while a glamorous evening affair in a ballroom may warrant a more polished and sophisticated look with sleek updos and statement makeup.
