Banu has worked for numerous well known stars in the south like Suriya, Vikram, and Thalaiva Rajnikant.

Another makeup artist who has a magical wand for a brush is Christien. The astute artist imported from Hollywood worked for hours on Big B to transform into Abhishek Bachchan’s son in the movie Paa. “The Passion of the Christ” was another movie that shows the magic cast by Tinsely who is also known for applying 2D and 3D make up, named ‘Tinsley Transfers’ after him.
The Mumbai based makeup artist has been a part of Bollywood since the early 70s. He knows the magic of transforming actors into the character they are portraying in front of the camera.

The top makeup artist in Bollywood who has given a new dimension to the beauty of Rani Mukherji, Preety Zinta and Kareena Kapoor is Mickey Contractor. Now back in the day, makeup artists in Bollywood were not allowed to do hair, and so Mickey had to fight a lot of gender discrimination. With over three decades of experience under his belt, he is the champion in his game and works on his own terms.
One of Bollywood’s famous makeup artist, you must have seen on Sonakshi Sinha’s Instagram posts more than often. The Sinha girl doesn’t trust anyone other than Sheetal when it comes to hair.

Kajol was spectacular in her come back movie Fanaa. Now we aren’t saying Kajol is not gorgeous already, but it was the pixie dust Mallika sprinkled on the actress that made her give all the young actress a run for their monies. If you are a beauty lover, don’t miss to give Mallika’s Instagram a follow.
Bollywood couldn’t thank this globetrotter more for settling down in here after having worked across countries like United States to United Kingdom to Australia. He has chosen Bombay as his resident and Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone are his top fans.
With her unique and exceptional style this make-up artist in Bollywood has left the likes of Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha, and Sonam Kapoor fangirling on her instead. Her talent is put on full show on mag covers and ad films in addition to movies. In Om Shanti Om she did an unparalleled job in giving Deeika Padukone a retro look.
