Meet Prakruthi Ananth, Makeup Artist

Prakruthi Ananth is a hugely talented make up artist from Chennai who I wholeheartedly recommend, and I’m not just saying this because I had her for my own wedding 😉 Read our feature on her to know more about her style of working and what makes her stand apart from other makeup artists. {Interview from Feb ’15, updated November ’15}


How did you start out?

I’d always liked MAC as a company and when I found that there was a job opening, I jumped at the chance. I worked with MAC as a Make up artist and then a manager for about 2 years. That’s when I found that not only did I have a flair for it; I truly began to LOVE my work. That’s where #Prakatwork came from too, because at work is where I’m most happy.

What do you love about weddings?

Oh, Everything! The love, laughter, tears, outfits, selfies, FOOD, everything! But I guess my favorite thing would have to be the moments leading up to the Bride and Groom seeing each other on their wedding day. And I’m fortunate enough to be a part of those ‘getting dressed’ moments and am able to witness first hand the excitement, nervousness and happiness. It’s the favorite part of my job as well.

What would you say sets you apart/or what would you say is your specialty?

During the make up trials, I talk to my brides and get to know their wishes and unique characteristics. So when I’m working on them, I try to bring forth my bride’s or model’s individuality through the look; make the makeup an extension of their personality if you will. I’d like to think that’s what sets me apart.

Prakruthi does makeup, and her mom, Seetha does Saree draping and Hair Styling, so if you’re looking to be transformed into a princess for your wedding day, you should definitely contact this fabulous mother daughter duo! Contact them at:
