As you prepare for your wedding, you’ll want to remember that there is no standardised package across the industry. Some makeup artists are able to provide a full package that covers hair, makeup, and saree draping for all the different ceremonies over the stretch of a few days, while others don’t. Do remember to ask your makeup artist beforehand!

Shradha Agarwal of ShradhaProStylist shares: “The important thing is that you need to communicate with your makeup artist so that she knows who you are! This way, she can work with you to help make you look like the best version of yourself, where your personality shines through.”

Without further ado, here are 24 of the best Indian bridal makeup artists in Singapore that brides love and trust for the biggest days of their lives. (They’re listed alphabetically, in no order of merit!)  Scroll through to see portfolios and rates!
