All eyes turn, as the bride walks into the wedding hall, looking resplendent, draped in a designer sari, decked in fine jewellery, intricate henna patterns decorate her hands and feet and sweet-smelling flowers adorn her tresses.

She makes the perfect entry, looking no less than a princess. She smiles radiantly, her eyes sparkle like the glittering diamonds she wears. Everyone marvels at how stunning she looks. The transformation of the girl next door into this goddess-like being is remarkable – she looks gorgeous. And why not, it's her day, she is the bride.

And then the bride's eyes dart, searching for someone and as if on cue, someone from the people surrounding her leans forward lending an ear and almost instantly adjusts the drape of the bride's sari, dabs her face and smoothens her hair…

"Yar ava??" asks one of the guests. "Atu ta? makeup artist" responds someone else.

Ah, the makeup artist, the most important individual in the bride's entourage. Makeup artists work behind the scenes, using great dexterity and skill to bring about amazing transformation, in the bride. Makeup artists what would bride's do without them!

South Indian weddings have seen a sea of change. While on the one hand, they remain rooted to customs and traditions, on the other they have imbibed traditions and customs alien to theirs. You know what I'm talking about – the sangeet and the mehndi and the pre-wedding cocktails, five-star receptions and destination weddings etc. Amidst all this the deep cultural and traditional connect remains intact, demanding (well almost) that the bride dresses in a conventional way.

Like most Indian weddings, South Indian weddings are a long-drawn affair, with rituals and celebrations stretching into many days. It's fun, everyone has a blast, but the bride has to look her best, through all the exhausting days. Traditional rituals go hand-in-hand with traditional wear, which means heavy saris, jewellery and makeup. It also means long, tiring days, and the added stress of looking beautiful through it all. This is where the makeup artist steps in. It is they who make it possible for the bride to look radiant.

I introduce to you some of the best makeup artists in Chennai. Someone you can trust to make you look spectacular on your special occasion.
