My name is Karpagam Ravi, and I am a bridal makeup artist. I own an artistry brand called Purplebleed Makeup by KP, which I started 4 years ago.
Since my school days, I used to follow a couple of international makeup artist blogs and practice it on myself. This is how I started, and I am very proud to say that I am a self-taught makeup artist. One thing I learned by following these blogs is how these artists do makeup, hairstyling and draping by themselves.
I have done 80+ weddings and I have never had even a helper to do it. I did all the styling by myself, and in some of the weddings, I did makeup for the bridesmaids too.
A few years back, I found that bridal makeup is an expensive one and not affordable for all. So I started charging the least and I still charge my clients very nominal rates. Now, I update myself on a daily basis and I make sure I maintain my standard in the makeup I do for each and every client.
