Makeup is an art and like any other art form, it is purely a figment of the artist’s imagination. In fact, recently makeup artists have become quite creative with their makeup brushes to create concept looks that are fun and quirky. From fake blood and fangs to immortal characters, these artistic looks are very detail oriented. Though this type of makeup may not be necessarily wearable or practical, you can always opt for an out-of-the-box look for a special occasion. Needless to mention, the talent, skill and innovation of these makeup artists are simply mind-blowing. You may love it or hate it, but it’s so hard to look away and ignore. Here are some super creative makeup looks that are done by some talented makeup artists in Chennai. Scroll down to check if your favourite makeup artist in Chennai features in our list!
Yep, it’s that time of year when the affairs get spooky as the night draws in! With the popularity of Halloween growing in India in recent years, the makeup artists in Chennai have used the occasion as a perfect canvas to exhibit their talents. For example, ace makeup artist Roshni Ravi (Insta handle: makeupbyroshniiravi) and hairstylist Sainidhi Kidambi (Insta handle: sainidhikidambi) have come up with several innovative concepts this Halloween season. The “bejewelled dead” look by them is no doubt scary but also sexy, don’t you think?
Coco is makeup artist Vishnupriya’s (Insta handle: vishualizemua) favourite animated movie and she just upped the Halloween fun with her creation of Mama Imelda from the Land of the Dead. And looks like she did complete justice to Mama Imelda’s character!
Makeup artist Prakruthi Anand’s (Insta handle: prakatwork ) got into the right spirit of Halloween with her Joker makeup inspired by the creepy, yet popular character, Joker from Batman. No wonder she is regarded as one of the top makeup artists in Chennai with a huge fan following on Instagram.
Looking for the most unexpected Halloween makeup ideas? How about a scary torn/ripped/slashed face? Well, makeup and prosthetic artist Sneha (Insta handle: snehamnj) from Chennai is an expert! Below are some of the chilling examples of her creative and dramatic makeup.
Sringa (Insta handle: kabooki_mua)is probably one of the most creative makeup artists of her generation. She manages to find the right balance between originality and surprising textures. Her below creation of a slashed face looks so natural and disturbing as it is meant to be!
Sringa’s depiction of Smiling Joker from the Marvel/DC is apparently her favourite creation. Look closely, the joker suit is actually body paint. We like the attention she has given to smaller details like forehead wrinkles, decayed teeth, narrow jawline.
1950’s was the golden age for fashion and style. When you think of make-up styles from this era, you think of vintage beauty with classic red or bubblegum pink lips and cat eyes. The duo, Roshni Ravi and Sainidhi Kidambi, love to play around with colours and experiment with different looks. And time and again they have proved their talent and originality through their bold makeup and dramatic designs. Their reproduction of a retro-look from the 1950’s instantly transforms you that period. It is refreshing and yes, authentic!
Yet another perky creation by Prakruti Anand inspired from the retro styles wants us to go back to this time. The bright and bubbly look is absolutely summer apt!
Theme based makeup is quite in vogue these days. And some of the makeup artists in Chennai in the business have dished out creative theme based makeups.
Prakruti Anand is among the youngest makeup artists in Chennai. Her skills are quite evident from her endless feed of special effects and character makeup. Here is her award-winning makeup “Zip It”.
Fancy a gorgeous and sparkly mermaid? The highly acclaimed and versatile makeup artist Kavita Shekar’s (Insta handle: makeupartistrybykavithasekar ) attempt to create an ethereal mermaid is sure to stir some waves.
When a talent squad from the city, Ratikha Venugopal (Insta handle: flauntbyratikha, ratikhavenugopal) and Anusha Swamy (Insta handle: anushaswamy ), team up to conceptualize and create a punk-inspired look, the result has to be nothing less than stunning!
Makeup artist Sneha loves to interpret and create stunning artistic displays on face and body as on a canvas. And her amazing work is all over the internet.
We all love fun-fares and carnivals and Sringa of Kabooki Makeup Artistry in Chennai has gone a step ahead and created a look dedicated to the theme carnival. Very thoughtful, right?
Some characters are purely immortal, whether they are popular movie characters or heroes from history! Not to mention, their styles and personality traits are everlasting and celebrated by millions across the globe. And our talented taskforce from Chennai is no different. We came across some fantastic recreations of iconic characters that left us spellbound.
Harley Quinn’s (Suicide Squad fame) psychotic style is a bedazzling in many ways. MUA Ratikha has used a detailed hand in making sure her recreation of Harley Quinn is absolutely perfect. Ratikha is a regular at Comic Con Contests and her recreations of DC characters have won her both, applause and awards.
Watching actress Keerthi Suresh depicting actress Savithri in Mahanati was such an eye candy. Well-known bridal makeup artist in Chennai, Anitha Sridhar’s (Insta handle: anithasridharmakeup) Mahanati inspired makeup with pouted lips, winged lashes and mid-parted hairstyles is a winner all the way.
Here is another tribute of actress Savithri by makeup artist Sringa.
Egypt’s most famous pharaoh, Cleopatra, stands out amidst history. She is famous for many reasons and one of them is her powerful fashion sense. And we love the way makeup artist Rachel Smith has successfully created a dramatic Cleopatra-inspired makeup look.
Samantha Jagan (Insta handle: samanthajagan ), the founder of premium unisex beauty salon Wink, is a beauty influencer in her own right. It’s not surprising that her Instagram boasts over 10,000 followers. She is certainly no stranger to pushing boundaries at work. But her Maleficent, the evil sorcerers, inspired makeup with horn-shaped hair, intense red lips, and a strong chiselled face is intriguing.
Vishnupriya’s below creation of Hindu deity Lakshmi personifies the goddess of prosperity and generosity in every aspect. The warmth and purity in the look remarkably resemble the image of Goddess Lakshmi.
The creative makeup of the fearsome black Goddess Kali (the Dark Mother) by Vishnu Priya is striking, unarguably!Chennai based celebrity makeup artist Rachel (Insta handle: rachelstylesmith) and owner of Salon Rachels Stylesmith can work wonders with a few strokes and pigments. Her creation of the super powerful deity, Goddess Durga, is flawless and manifests her invincible image and triumph of good over evil.
