Taking the Road Less Travelled

Beauty is all about being confident in your skin, staunchly believes make-up artist, Ginni Moudgill

 “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world,” aptly stated Harriet Tubman and the trailblazing journey of make-up artist, Ginni Maoudgill stands testament to the same.

Twelve years old Ginni used to play with various shades and textures of lipsticks and eye shadows to see how they complemented each other and match them to different outfits, which sparked creativity in her at a very young age. As time passed, she never missed a chance to do make-up on her friends and fellow mates, participating in plays and performances to see how she could play with make-up techniques on different features.

“It amazed me to see how make-up transformed someone’s face. Being very good in academics I was never encouraged to take up this field professionally. So, I pursued my Bachelors of Commerce in accounts honours followed by a Management degree but, I was still pursuing my passion on weekends and holidays by attending various make-up workshops, reading books by legendary make-up artists like Bobbi Brown and Kevin Aucoin, acquiring knowledge under my aunt’s make-up studio, and doing make-up for friends and relatives on weddings. Make-up was always my passion and nothing could stop me from pursuing it eventually,” shared Ginni with a confident smile on her face.

What are some of the highlights of your trailblazing journey?

Throughout the most part of my journey, I was self-taught but it was when my husband finally supported me to pursue my passion professionally that I went to the eminent international make-up school “London College of Make-up”. I also got a chance to learn from the phenomenal Bollywood make-up artist, Namrata Soni. I started freelancing soon after that and by God’s grace, I got a lot of appreciation & support. However, I would say that this is just the beginning!
