“My name is Rekha and I am a VLCC certified makeup artist. Like most of the girls, I had an interest in makeup from a young age and then it turned into my passion and hobby.
During my teenage days, I always dreamed about a career in the Makeup field and I used to be the favorite makeup artist for my friends and family members. But I wasn’t able to take up makeup as a profession right away as my parents wanted me to complete my studies and take up a bank job.
Then I got married and was busy with my family and daughter, but my passion for makeup did not die and I badly wanted to pursue my passion. So I decided to speak to my husband about it. My husband supported me and got me enrolled into VLCC to take up a professional makeup course, and that’s how I got trained practically and theoretically to use international brands like Krylon, Mac, Makeup Studio, Makeup Revolution, Temptu, and Bobby Brown.
Initially, I was searching for a job in the makeup industry as a makeup artist but then I decided to start my own venture called ‘Shimmering Makeover’. Slowly I started getting makeup offers from clients for their weddings, engagement parties, baby showers, etc . And then one fine day Ms. Gayathri from TBG gave me a great opportunity to join TBG and to be a part of this esteemed and reputed company.
I have faith that TBG will surely take me to the next level in my work. I’m really thankful to Mrs. Rani Moses, Mrs. Sharanya and Mrs. Gayathri for believing in me and giving me this great opportunity to showcase my talent. My ambition is to create my own name in this makeup field with all your blessings.
Thank you, one and all.”
