There’s something uniquely satisfying about being a makeup artist. The hours are crazy, it’s a long process of trial, experience and effort to gain recognition and yet… and yet it’s incredibly fulfilling.
Ask any bride and you’ll soon understand the importance – and the impact – professional makeup can have on their day. I am a part of making every bride feel unique, stunningly, gloriously beautiful and confident on a day they will never forget.
I first launched my studio in Leicester over 10 years ago, and worked on a number of magazine shoots and editorial work. This was how I was found and approached by MAC Cosmetics, who I’d worked with for 10 years (left august 2018), developing my skills and qualifications until I was the highest qualified makeup artist for MAC in Leicester, and recognised as a brand product specialist.
Since January 2017, my studio has expanded, both in services and size, and now offers an accredited training school for future artists. I personally work with every bride, but bring a team of personally picked specialists with me for larger groups and projects.
I believe in helping you to accent and enhance your natural features and beauty, interpreting your requests and personal style to find the perfect look – glamourous, chic, natural, vibrant or exotic.
I provide the best in quality for makeup products and service – my aim is to make you feel your most stunning, most beautiful you!! – whether you’re a bridal or non-bridal client.
Additionally, in 2020, I’m proud that the announcements were continuous with;

Manisha, I am so glad and happy that I found you and that you have been able to do
my hair and makeup on many occasions. Thank you so much for the amazing work you
continue to provide.
Besides being a beautiful woman you are blessed with multiple talents and the kindest
heart. You have a steady hand and combining with the stroke of blending and the use of
colours of an artist and experiences, you see the beauty and shape of each individual needs
to make the finish of your work almost if not perfect.
Your ability to listen and understand your clients feelings and needs during the process is
You have not just been someone who I call for hair and makeup but also for facials and
skincare advice. You’re an all rounder.
Thank you for providing the amazing service you do and thank for continuing to just be
Stay Blessed xxx
Manisha is honestly the most friendliest hair and mua I’ve met. I have never had the
best experiences when getting hair and makeup done. There’s always something that I feel
they didn’t listen to me or they said they could do but can’t or I ended up thinking I just
don’t have the features to look nice like the women in other pics. So, when it came to
booking for my wedding, I was so worried but Manisha made me feel instantly comfortable.
She knew in her mind what would make me look amazing more than I did. I let her work her
magic and it was the best choice I made. I felt beautiful. My makeup didn’t budge and
neither did my hair. She is relevant, kind, understanding and actually listens to your likes
and dislikes. Thank you, Manisha, for making me feel beautiful on the best day of my life.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything. From the
moment of enquiring to the end of my wedding occasions you have provided so much
support and the best service. I knew from the moment of enquiring that I wouldn’t need to
look anywhere else. I’d seen how fabulous your work was and also the quality of service and
information given on the initial contact, made me realise I’d be making the right choice. You
always provided in depth detail in each of our discussions/messages, saving the need for
back and forth messages right from the start. This made me realise again that you knew
exactly what you were doing, providing reassurance and confidence that I could count on
you. I felt that you always listened to what I wanted and gave the right advice where
needed. You were kind, approachable and honest from day one, which is really important
for someone to feel comfortable when allowing you to be part of their big day. You were
able to create the exact looks I’d hoped for, if not better. So thank you again for everything
and making me feel so special on my big day/events. I would always recommend you to
anyone who would ask about hair and make up, because you made my vision come true of
what I’d imagined I’d look like. Couldn’t thank you enough. Rakhee
