Makeup Artist Deepti Mohindar on the Initial Challenges She Faced in Her Career as a Beginner


Deepti Mohindar is a popular makeup artist in India who owns a salon called Studio MeCHE. She is a media student who developed an interest in makeup during her college days. For 14 years, Deepti has become a trustworthy name, especially for bridal makeup. She worked hard, learned every brush technique and thoroughly understood how to blend everything perfectly.

Make-up artist Deepti Mohindar reveals that from a third-person point of view, doing makeup seems fun and easy. But to be the best and perfect with it requires a lot of patience. One has to be calm and patient while handling clients. Her patience, determination and zeal helped her become popular in 2007 when she introduced airbrush makeup. She was even hired as an airbrush makeup trainer by VLCC back then.

Deepti saw the works of some talented makeup artists and self-taught other important makeup skills. Being from a media background to a makeup artist to owning a salon has been quite a roller coaster ride. There were challenges, but Deepti’s dreams were bigger and stronger that every obstacle.

When asked what challenges she faced during her journey, in the beginning, Deepti Mohinder shares, “Thankfully, when I started my career as a makeup artist, there were few like me, and specially in Kolkata. So getting work was not difficult. But yes, handling clients and tantrums were definitely challenging. No institute teaches you how to handle such clients. But we learn to tackle them in our way.”

Along with being a phenomenal makeup artist, Deepti is also a doting wife and mother. She has 2 girls, currently studying in school. Thanks to Deepti’s talent, her phone is almost always buzzing with messages and calls from clients for an appointment. She feels good to see how many people trust her work and want to collaborate with her for some special occasions in their lives.
