“My teachers always taught me to dream big, speak with conviction and make people believe in my dream and lastly work hard to make it happen.”
Q. How did the idea for your business come about ?
A. “Beauty is power, and makeup helps enhance it” I truly believe in this. For me makeup is more than just a tool to look good. I believe makeup can transform a person, it can transform moods and boost one’s confidence. Makeup can do magic for it does not just make the face look beautiful but it has the power to change your whole personality and attitude.
Ever since I was a little girl was fascinated with makeup. My knack to think and experiment outside the box led me to my first professional training in the art of doing makeup. After gaining some meaningful experience from the experts in the industry I decided to share this skill with other women who loved makeup the way I did. That is how ‘Makeovers by Simran’ started.
