Award winning celeb make up artist Amrit Kaur and founder of the premier training institute The Make Up School based in Pune and Delhi is a woman on a mission as beautiful as it is powerful: exploring the potential of make up as a viable profession that contributes to women’s empowerment and doing away with the ‘frivolous’ tag attached to it.

When Amrit Kaur puts the finishing touches on a bride’s beautiful face and hair style, she knows she has not only made the lady gorgeous on the most important day of her life, but created a memory forever.
Look closer- beneath each stroke of the make-up artiste’s colourful palate is a world of grit, hard work and determination-especially to do away with the stereotypes attached to make up. “People, especially in India, tend to look at make up as a frivolous pastime, meant only for the rich and the pampered,” shares Amrit. “But that’s far from true. Good make up is an art and science-and a wonderful way of enhancing God given beauty, irrespective of one’s age and status, thereby adding to a woman’s confidence quotient.”
