You're insistent that people look at you and scream “maybe she is born with it” but your make-up skills don't help back the claim. So let the professionals of The Powder Room step in and help. Launched by Hina and Manee (who earlier ran 1010, The Nail Spa), The Powder Room pegs itself as Delhi’s first mobile makeup and hair styling service – or you can just call it an upscale version of the hair-makeup-sari lady who you call over when you have a wedding to attend. Still, pretty useful.
Handing out make-overs in the comfort of your home, these beauty god mothers specialise in luxury hair and makeup services that are customized to any event you think of – parties, dates, weddings. An extensive look-book for hair and makeup is backed by a claim that as long as you have a picture of a favourite celebrity look, they will replicate it for you.
With the wedding season about to turn Delhi into one giant beat of dhol, we suggest you have a look at The Powder Room's special bridal services. They offer packages for the bride along with her family and friends, which include mid-event touch-ups. Products used are high-end, like Mac, Temptu Airbrush, Bobby Brown and Chanel.
Other services include mini makeovers, lavish lashes, brow tinting (Les Mascara-bles?), draping (sarees and lehengas), manicures, pedicures. Also on the cards is a fully functional massage service, where they’ll come with oils and table, and all you have to do is put your feet up and relax. Much more glam than your usual maalishwaali.
