    I LOVE this blog!!!! I got ready at Sabs and Natasha for my shadi and walima and I loved the makeup of the both days but Natasha’s makeup looked amazing in pictures and a bit over done in real life while Sabs was the opposite.

    Great list! I recently got married and these were the names that kept coming up again and again when I was researching make up artists. However, I ended up going to Shaheen Saeed and she did an exceptional job. Shes humble and definitely knows what she’s doing. I’ve never seen a bride by her that hasn’t looked amazing

    It would be awesome if you could do a list of Lahore’s best. In the last two years Ive gone to Alle Nora’s and Madeehas for two different weddings (3 days each at each salon) and was really not impressed with their makeup. I felt like they go for a really white look even on party makeup even though i have quiet a bronze complexion. My sister and cousin are getting married at the end of the year. It would be awesome to know what other places in Lahore are of good service and quality.

    Not having lived in Karachi for almost 20 years, I was at a loss when we decided to get married in Karachi. I refused to try any of the big commercial places for fear of a chalky white bridal look.. After researching with local people, I finally decided to go with Wajid Khan for my wedding and Shaheen Saeed for the valima. I loved both looks with Wajid going a more natural route (exactly what I wanted) but hair and makeup were both done in 45 mins with the makeup FLAWLESS and I didn’t have to worry about touchups, and he did my dupatta so well I felt like I was floating. I reallly loved it!
    Shaheen’s eye makeup was AMAZING.. but I felt a little caked although it did look wonderful in pictures. The dupatta was an epic fail as I had a really heavy one and they didn’t pin it properly (resulting in a migraine within an hour!) so I had to re pin myself. Also, Shaheen’s is a little overwhelming as she is very particular about how everything is done. However, she has done multiple events in my family and everyone has been incredibly pleased with the results!
    Overall, a great experience with both and my pictures were amazing!
