We are very excited to bring you some questions which may answer a lot of your queries. Hope you all enjoy it. <3
NM: What made you decide to choose makeup as your field?
PK: Well I was always into makeup, ever since I was a small kid. I used to smell my mother’s lipsticks because I used to love the smell of it (I am obsessed with makeup in very creepy way I know) :p
I used to enjoy doing others makeup and hair even though I wasn’t a professional back then but I used to love how a person completely transforms with makeup and that made me want to choose this field cause I can never get tired of doing everyone’s makeup. It’s not just makeup products that I love, I love doing it and every bit of it. <3
NM: Today’s woman is busier than ever. What is the easiest/quickest way to turn a day/work look into something that works for night out?
PK: If you know me you would know how crazy I am about dark lipsticks and I love dark lipsticks on everyone. I believe that lipstick is the most important part of makeup. Even if you don’t have anything else on and just a lipstick you still look fabulous. But if you have everything else on and not a lipstick, it kind of looks incomplete. So if someone wants to change their daytime look into night and they don’t have the time to do something extraordinary they can always switch to dark lip color to make the night more glamorous.
NM: What are your favorite Fall/Winter 2016 beauty trends?
PK: I absolutely love fall/winter beauty trends. They are mostly about warm shades on the eyes and bold, plum or maroon lip colors. Basically the vampy looks. And they are my absolute favourite. I recently did a fall look as well which was copper glittery eyes with that dark burgundy lip and that bronzed face. <3
NM: Some trends can feel a bit out-there for the average woman. Especially style-conscious women of “a certain age” who wish to remain current but fear looking as if they’re trying too hard. What are some comfort-zone-friendly ways to rock the latest trends?
PK: To be honest when it comes to makeup I don’t really think trends or fashions matter. Makeup is fun and I think anyone should do whatever they like and whatever they are comfortable with. As I always say there are no rules to makeup just do what you think looks great. No technique or no makeup is wrong or right. Makeup is fun and just have fun with it.
NM: Speaking of age appropriateness, let’s consider the flip-side. In this day and age of Toddlers & Tiaras and 20-something-looking tweens, is there an age you, as a makeup-artist, consider too soon for girls to begin wearing makeup on a regular basis?
PK: That’s a very difficult question to answer cause I was always into makeup but I wasn’t allowed to put makeup on until I was 19. But I am from a different generation. Now things have changed. We have inspirations like Kylie Jenner who is just 19 and has her own makeup line. So I am honestly no one to tell.
Besides a little makeup doesn’t hurt anyone. 😉
NM: Any tips on how girls can achieve a look that is both “cool” and parent-friendly?
PK: There are tons of makeup looks that are both parent-friendly and cool at the same time. For instance, a fresh glowy skin paired with a winged liner, soft blush and soft lips looks absolutely stunning and is also not that extraordinary.
NM: What three makeup item should no woman leave home without?
PK: I think concealer, lipstick and a face compact.
These are the basic things you need for touch ups or to do your no makeup, makeup look.
NM: Who have you not worked on that you’d kill to get into your chair?
PK: I have a huge list of celebrities, to be honest. But I would love to do Mehreen Syed’s makeup. I think she has such gorgeous features and I always imagine doing her makeup in my mind. 😀
NM: Can you tell us about a memorable moment you had while doing make-up?
PK: My first ever paid makeup client. I can never forget that moment. I was so scared from the inside, but was all chill on the outside. I am sure she probably didn’t even notice but I was just so scared and crying like a baby from inside. I thought I will mess it up, and I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it. But everything turned out to be great and my client was really happy, and I think that was the only time when I actually got scared of doing makeup.
NM: What does it take to be successful in your industry?
PK: It’s not just our industry but for every practical field or every industry I think what matters the most is practice.
“Practice makes man perfect” I know it’s a very cliche saying but it’s very true and I genuinely believe in this. There are times when you might fail but that shouldn’t stop you from doing what you love. As they say, if you can dream it you can do it.
NM: Are there any new exciting shows or projects that you are working on or lined up in the near future?
PK: I do have a lot of stuff planned. Specially for the year 2017. I can’t talk about it right now but I just hope everything works out as planned.
NM: Your Experience with Vogue Amour?
PK: I loved it. Thank you so much for having me here. I am so glad to be part of Vogue Amour family. 🙂
