When I look back at my photos, I find it very hard to believe my luck, on finding Simran and booking her for my wedding day make up. I have only good things to say. Believe it or not, I have been so grateful for her skills that I think about her every two days, haha - and I got married in March this year. The day I got my make up trial done by Simran, I knew I was in safe hands. From my first interaction with Simran to my latest, she has been amazingly professional, kind, honest, patient, flexible and also very non-judgmental. She has a very solution-based approach which I am quite thankful for. While getting ready my blouse?s zip got jammed. Before I could panic, Simran had a solution to stitch it up for me at the end of the make up. Really, that was exactly the kind of support required on such an important day. Apart from all this, she was very proactive with communication, being on time and dealing with money. One more thing: I somehow managed to convince my mom to get her make up done by Simran as well. Now, my mom has not touched make up in her life - so she was very worried and very conscious. I can?t even express in words how beautiful, yet simple and natural my mom looked on my wedding day. Really proud of my decision to trust Simran with such an important task. Simran doesn?t turn you into another person, rather she enhances the existing beauty and ensures the final look is natural but sophisticated at the same time. I don?t think I have met anyone yet, who has seen the photos or attended the wedding and hasn?t commented positively on the makeup. And my mom?s make up was a pleasant surprise for everyone - something that will be remembered and talked about for many many years :) Can?t recommend Simran enough for anyone. I don?t see any reason for not picking her over any other person. She is someone you can trust 100%, no questions asked. You will not be disappointed, you have my word.

Simran is amazing!! She worked her magic on me for my Mehendi and Cocktail. She’s completely passionate about what she does and her work speaks for itself. She made me feel comfortable and is an extremely kind person. Thank you for making me look gorgeous!! Love you.

Simran is awesome, there's no other word for it. She did the perfect makeup that stayed through a long summer day, and went perfectly with both my outfits. I always wanted makeup that made my skin glow and highlight my features but not look like I have put on a lot of makeup, and Simran got it just right. She is very approachable and happy to discuss ideas before the D-day, and makes you feel super comfortable and stress-free through the whole time she's with you. Keep up the great work, girl!

Since, I prefer subtle makeup, I was a little skeptical about this decision. I went with the WMG recommendation and booked Simran Kalra for the Delhi functions and Rehat Brar for the cocktail in Ludhiana. I absolutely loved my mehendi look, subtle, light and suited to my personality. While the wedding makeup can be a little overwhelming, if I had a choice, I wouldn't change a thing.Source

My MUA Simran for Mehendi and Reception dinner was recommended by my bestie. I?m very a minimal bride when it comes to makeup and my sensibilities matched with Simran..she?s such a lovely person and really listens to you..also we had so much to talk about so getting ready was a ball. Rehat did my reception makeup. She did such an amazing job. I gave her reference pic with smoky brown eyes and she gave me the exact same look!Source

I couldn't have been happier with my makeup on my wedding and mehendi. Simran has a very subtle style that makes you look like a prettier version of yourself. She is amazing for brides who haven't used too much makeup in the past or don't like heavy look. She goes with styles that suit your personality and is extremely flexible with what you are looking at. Also, she's extremely patient in stressful situation and has her way of handling a bridezilla! Thanks a ton Simran!

There is no one better when it comes to makeup. Simran knows her work and does it well. She gave me two completely different looks for both my functions - one focussing on dramatic eyes and the other on bold lips- and both looked incredible. It really shows the wide skill set she has. An added plus is that she stays completely calm and makes the bride feel comfortable - trust me, it is a great thing to have spend time with someone who relaxes you rather than stresses you ahead of your big day. Last, but not the least, she uses the best of products that stay on for a long, long time. Thank you, Simran, for making my wedding extra special

She knows her job hands down. She is a professional and will make sure that u are completely satisfied with your look. She made me look beautiful is all I can say. She keeps it simple and classy. I highly recommend her for her sense of makeup the quality products and for being absolutely calm which is very assuring. Keep doing great Simran.

Simran is a such an amazing artist and a really nice person too. She understands exactly what you want and makes sure you get the perfect look from the makeup to hair, nails and the small details. The products she uses are top notch and she has a really good team of hairstylists. She gave me a beautiful hairstyle perfect for my mehendi and if natural makeup is what you want, then simran is your go to person. Getting ready from her was a ball and i would definitely recommend her to everyone!

I got my wedding make up done by Simran. She is perfect at what she does and creates magic, I was so comfortable with her on my wedding day and kept all my ideas in her mind while dressing me up. Since it was an Anand Karaj, she gave a perfect morning look, couldn't have asked for anything better! Thank you again, Simran! Would love to get makeup done by you in future :)

If you want a natural, dewy, glowy look for your big day, Simran is your girl! She has a knack of putting you right at ease from the first meeting and I booked her right away for all my wedding functions. Before the events, I shared with her my outfits and the looks that I wanted and she was super receptive and excited about them! She is super professional and punctual, only uses the best and most premium products, listens to what her clients want and then delivers spot on every time! She is an incredibly sweet person with a very calming presence and is absolutely wonderful to work with! My makeup for all my events was flawless and I felt like the absolute best version of myself! The best part was how well it stayed on throughout the night and how good it looked in the pictures. Thank you for making me look and feel beautiful on the most special days of my life Simran!

Simran quite literally saved my wedding day since she was requested to do my make up only a few hours before my morning wedding and she was there right in time! I am so glad I trusted her and also sad that I didn’t know about her earlier else I would’ve booked her for all other functions! Her work is subtle and brilliant. She understood what I wanted in minutes and gave me exactly that so effortlessly! She uses super quality products and has excellent application skills which made my skin glow through the day and a few hours of the night too. Although the look that we went for was a simple winged liner and bold red lips, it required a lot of patience and accuracy. Simran did it so well and professionally! Thank you Simran for being a part of my wedding! You are absolutely super at what you do! Keep shining :)

From childhood to adolescense we girls fantasize on many things, no matter if its day or night we love fantasizing and the most common one ofcourse "to be a PERFECT BRIDE". This long awaited expectation of looking perfect on your D-DAY makes you nervous too. But many thanks to god that he sent simran to me for that occasion. She made my fantacies true. I couldn't have asked for more. She made me look beautiful with my natural looks rather overdoing it. She not only made my day but fulfilled my long cherished dream. I will always be proud of my decision to choose her for the most special day if my life. She truly is godsent for me. Many many thanks to you Simran. XOXO!

I give Simran 11/10 for her makeup! She did my engagement make up and I can't thank her enough for how she dolled me up. Since I am a no makeup person, I was really nervous about how make up would look on me but she made me believe in her and I'm glad I did! She has been a blessing! I wish her lots and lots of success! She deserves it all :) If you are getting married and need the best make up artist who can be a great friend too, Simran is the one you need! Thank you once again Simran

My makeup artist was recommended by Wendell Rodricks and I didn't need to think twice before hiring her. She also really pushed me to use airbrush makeup which was so awesome. It was lightweight, sweat proof and totally worth the extra money.

I took a trial from Simran and she was just amazing during the trial. I was so positive about having her as my MUA. But all of the changed once I saw the end result of my Bridal Makeup. She used a Chanel base on one half of my face during my trials and indicated how if she gave more coverage using Krylon, it would look cakey. On the day of the wedding, most of the base makeup was done using Krylon. The makeup cracked along my laugh lines within half an hour, while I was comfortably sitting in my hotel room. The lipstick bled and the nailpaint smudged, I could have lived with all of this. But the hairstyle she chose for me, ruined my whole look. I have less hair in the front and during the trials she assured me that she would handle this. However, her attitude during the wedding day was very different. I repeatedly told her that i didnt like my hair(very flat) and that it was not what we discussed. But she did not do anything about it and was adamant that this was the best she could do. Everyone who saw me that day and saw my pictures has commented that for 25,000 (+2000 trial) that is a really bad hairstyle. I wish I had spent a little extra and gone with tejasvini.

Right from our first ever talks, she exactly knew what I wanted. A very young talented girl who goes through and through in understanding you and making you feel so comfortable on your big day. She made sure I was comfortable with the make up and helped me get all my accessories in order too! She made me feel so confident about my looks and I completely trusted her on selecting the looks for me !

Simran is absolutely amazing. She understood exactly what looks I wanted, gave me her suggestions & made me look gorgeous. I am not a makeup person but she simply let me be myself with the makeup, which is what I feel is of paramount importance. I definitely owe her all the compliments. Way to go Simran! All the very best! You deserve a big THANKIALISAUROUS.

I have had very few great make up experiences, and It would always get very nerve racking for me just to think of how it will be for me especially when it will be my D day. Simran was able to erase all my apprehensions.. ALL..
25 May 2017
Simran is absolutely fantastic!! She did my sister, mum's and my make-up 3 years ago and when I fixed up my wedding dates, I blocked Simran's without a doubt!! She made all of us look like 'ourselves' at all functions!! As the bride my look for both functions were completely different. I was not very sure of what I wanted and I completely trusted Simran with my look, and no disappointment there!! As a sardarni being dressed up as a Bengali bride I was apprehensive and not very sure of how would I look and how to drape my saree etc.. not only did she make me look gorgeous.. also calmed my nerves and didnt rush through anything!! I would recommend Simran to anyone looking for a stylish yet minimalist artist who will make sure that you look like yourself and not have layers and layers of make on!!
25 May 2017
Simran is the best! I would whole- heartedly recommend her to anyone. I went for a trial and without a second thought, booked her for the wedding. My only regret till date is to not get her to do the make up on other functions. Simran makes you look exactly how you have dreamt of looking on your wedding day. She also works with the hair stylist to give you the perfect hair style. I can trust her with my eyes shut, literally- I was completely relaxed and almost asleep during the make up knowing I would love the look. I also took make up lessons from her, which are super helpful.

Simran is beyond fantastic! I used her services for my wedding 3 years ago and now when my sister was getting married, it had to be Simran! She's super professional and tailors her styles very well according to the function and your own requirements. For each function, my mum, sister and I had different looks and also the ones we were very pleased with! If you are after someone who enhances your beauty without caking on 10 kilos Simran is your girl! Keep up the great work Simran!

Simran did a fantastic job with my sister on her pre function and wedding day, as well as for me (sister of the bride ) and for our mother. Her makeup looks flawless, yet natural. She takes great effort in ensuring that her client is comfortable. We would highly recommend Simran for any function , and DEFINITELY for the wedding. If you're looking for someone who will create a stress free environment and give you nothing but the best on your special day, then Simran is the perfect person for the job!

A thorough professional added with the fact that she is super easy to work with. She is the BEST makeup artist to have by your side on the biggest day(s) of your life. I was super lucky to have her right from the start i.e. the engagement where she gave me a super soft and dewey look. In the days leading up to the wedding we exchanged notes on the different hairstyles and looks we can create for the different functions. She also arranged for sort of a trial with her team to discuss the looks in detail, all the while ensuring nothing gets repeated. The best part about Simran is she will understand your face, skin and features to make you look the best that you can. She will not just a copy and paste a hairstyle/ a smokey that looks good on picture on someone else. She was an absolute perfectionist standing on her teams head and guiding the draping and hair person whenever it was needed. More than an artist she was also a big support system during the wedding and is now a good friend. Ps. I also took personal makeup classes from her during my engagement period and got her recommendation for what to buy for my trousseau. Totally recommend that to all the Bride to be's out there.

She is just FABULOUS. She made me look exactly how I had wanted and in fact it was even better than I had imagined. I dont use makeup and was really worried about me not looking like myself at my wedding. The beauty of her work is that she knows exactly how to make you look your best with the right focus on your best features. She is extremely professional and with her being your makeup artist, you can just lay back and relax, She will do a better job that you would expect :)
27 March 2017
With not such a great experience in the past, I was very skeptical of how my make up would turn out on the most special day of my life. Simran was recommended to me by my sister who had seen her work online and that's how I decided to work with her and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I never ended up doing a trial with her as I was very busy with the wedding preparations, but she had such great reviews that I completely trusted her. She did an absolutely flawless job with my wedding makeup- subtle, natural and long lasting. She is very patient, listens to all your requests and ensures that you are fully satisfied, stress free and calm throughout the getting-ready period. Simran is incredibly amazing and every bride's dream make up artist and I highly recommend her to every bride to be :)

I found simran's page on facebook and instantly loved her work. She's one of the few who understands the art of subtle make up. She is extremely professional and, with her positive energy, she's just the kind of person you'd want around when you have a million other things to stress about! what I love is that she doesn't compromise on the quality of the products she uses. I absolutely love what she did for me on my wedding functions and would highly recommend her to all.

Simran did a spectacular job! A thorough professional who will look at the details. She wouldn't say done till the time you are satisfied. She makes you look like a better version of you!

Simran- A stellar makeup artist! Her passion, professionalism and makeup skills will make it all worth it. Opt for her if you want to look the most stunning version of yourself. I am not into makeup and prefer a subtle and elegant make up style, I sure was in the best hands on my D-Day. Simran's understated makeup style enhances your features in the best possible way, you still look like yourself and not loaded with layers of makeup. If you want to be classy and elegant bride- Simran is your goto artist. She always takes your opinion into consideration, she uses premium quality high end products and her magic on you to make you the most beautiful bride ever. Her way is- enhance your beauty keeping your personality in mind! Highly recommended, you can't thank her enough! Thanks a lot Simran!!

I first saw Simran's work when she did my friend's bridal make up 2 years back and have been following her work on Instagram since then. I genuinely wanted Simran to be my MUA for my big day and I'm glad I could block her dates in time :) I loved the following things in her work which surely makes her outshine the lot : 1) non cakey base My complexion is not an easy one to blend but she nailed it !!! 2) that 'perfect' lip shade I have always seen brides wearing bright red lips with red lehenga.. which becomes too much to handle in pictures but Simran definitely knows how to mellow down the red right! 3) edgy eye make up MUAs seldom experiment with different colour Kajal (other than black) on water line for the brides but Simran gave me a broad streak of emerald green kajal matching with the Jwellery and I can't thank her enough post seeing my wedding pics. Yay! For that extra glam quotient! Hey Simran - everyday I think to myself (at least once or twice or may be more ;))-what a gorgeous bride I made !! All thanks to you :) All the best.

I have experienced the work of 3 make-up artists so far and Simran is by far the best! She did my wedding make up (glad I saved her for the main event). I was having a breakout during my wedding so it was definitely a challenge to work with that. She used just the right amount of make-up and it remained intact till the end. The best part was that she listened to all my concerns and came up with ways to make me feel comfortable. For example, I did not want a bun that would make me look older than I am and she made sure that my hairstyle looked smart and suited my face. She also voiced out her opinion when she felt that something will not look right. I trusted her opinion on a lot of things and they all turned out to be right! Other than make up, her team did a fantastic job with draping. I did not have to worry about adjusting my dupatta from time to time. I was very, very happy with her work and attitude.
19 July 2016
Loved Simran's work quality, products, efficiency, flexibility, pricing and professionalism. She made me and my sister look stunning when it mattered the most! I would trust her blindly and do highly recommend her work to my friends and family. Great going!

Having stumbled across Simran is one of those things that I thank the advent of Internet for (No kidding). She proved to be an 'angel in disguise' for me. I am the kind of person whose idea of make-up is a lipstick and kajal at the most. So naturally, when my marriage was fixed, I was fanatic about getting the right make-up artist whom I could trust blindly. This coupled with the fact that I had already had 2 not-so-satisfying experiences with 2 different make-up artists (at renowned chains of salons in Delhi) made me all the more apprehensive about it all. That is when I stumbled across Simran's pages. Looking at her work, I felt I could relate to the kind of make-up she did. And without a doubt, selecting her for my wedding day make-up was probably the best decision I took. I do not understand make-up, but the one thing that I was absolutely sure about was that I did not want to look plastic or cakey or an over-done version of myself. I wanted to be recognised as who I am and not a plastered doll... And that is precisely what she did. Your wedding day look is very important as it stays with you forever. You look back at it from time to time. And Simran clearly understands that. She made me look my own best with just the 'right' amount of make-up. My wedding look was very simple, classy and elegant and I got tons of compliments for the same. I have never been this satisfied with 'make-up' ever. Having said that, I would specially like to add here that Simran is a thorough professional who knows what she is doing. She really knows her technique. She is a wonderful person to interact with and is very cooperative in trying to understand what you want for yourself. To summarize, she is definitely a keeper and is going to be my de-facto make-up artist for all important events of my life! :)

Simran did my wedding make up . Actually she's a complete artist , she made it so simple for me as I just told her I trust you so you just play with your colors and pallet . From the engagement to the wedding all was just perfect ! I saw her work at my family friends wedding which was exactly a year before mine . November being the perfect month I think my half of the worries were gone as I just simply loved her work when I saw it . And I had just decided that Simran will be doing my make up , hair . Her entire team of people she gets / has with her are really good esp they understand you structure and do the hair and make up that Simran does is so correct to your understanding and likeness ! . The main thing is that she's really efficient and yet professional which is the best and main key to have when it comes to doing such kind of a job . I just didn't have to stress with her which was the main thing for a bride to have her make up sorted and with her it was :-) . So being an artist my self all I can say she is a perfectionist which is a best quality I love about her . I will and keep giving her reference to all the girls gonna or getting married . Keep it up Simran . And soon will do another round of make up :-)

I planned my Delhi wedding sitting oversees, since didn?t have much store hopping to do, I had all the time in the world to scout for a makeup artist, . I started my search at least 11 months prior to the wedding date :D and left no stone unturned to find 'The Right' makeup artist. My photographer threw few options (including Simran), but still the Curious Mary I am and the time I had, I went through 2 dozen profiles, and thousands of testimonial photographs. Of course, I was confused. The first time I texted Simran, she was very responsive and humble, enough for me to proceed with my Pros and Cons analysis--- So i made a list, Pros- 1. She had outstanding reviews online and was featured in best bridal makeup artists in Delhi listings. 2. Since I didn?t have the luxury of going for a trial, I based my search significantly on their bridal photographs and isn't that what we want, look fab in pics??? And holy camoly, her brides do look ravishing!!! What I loved the most was that all of her brides looked naturally beautiful and completely different from one another. They all looked the 'Prettiest version of THEMSELVES'- Something that was Very Imp to me. 3. She was charging half of what the other name brands were asking. 4. She was recommended by my photographer Tarun Chawla (a maestro himself), so he couldn?t blame my makeup for bad photographs (just in case):D 5. She was offering to do my makeup at her home. So I had the assurance that she will give me the time I deserve and wouldn?t be in any rush. I was very stubborn on not wanting to go to even the best makeup parlor in Delhi because I was getting married on the busiest day of December and worried that artists will not even have time to listen to what I wanted or change my makeup if I didn?t like something. Cons- 1. She was not coming to the venue for the makeup, my initial preference but somehow her place was not far from where I was getting married. I guess this doesn?t count as a con then... Now If I recommend her. I would say ditch the pointers above, one reason you should go to her, she will make you look just like you had imagined. I absolutely loved her makeup and always thank her in my head when I look at my wedding pics. I got so many complements on my makeup (especially my eye makeup which I consider my best feature) and her makeup didn?t budge even until after the pheras. I got many inquiries for the makeup artist from the guests and now my sister is also getting her bridal makeup done from her. Sign her up and thank me later :-)

Simran Kalra is the most talented Make-up artist I know. She knows exactly what the right shades are for your skin whether it is concealing or contouring. She transformed my face and used the shades that would completely suit my skin tone. I loved how refined I looked at my wedding all thanks to her. She makes you look so natural. I recommended her to 2 of my other friends who were getting married and they were equally pleased by her. I would not go by with anyone else for my make-up.

Being a Kerala bride and getting married to a Punjabi- in a traditional Kerala-style day wedding in Delhi was, as you can imagine, full of apprehensions- and getting the bridal look right was the biggest concern. Simran made this possible to an extent that I still get praises for how I looked at my wedding. I wanted a not-too-cakey natural look- which she ensured. The make-up was perfect for the bright winter afternoon with bold lips and very soft smoky eyes- complete with hair adorned with jasmines and jewellery stitched on to my cream and gold saree (which btw she did as well). So- not only was the make-up exactly as I had wanted, Simran also ensured that I get the entire look while also maintaining my stress levels! She also did my make-up for the Mehndi (bright eyes-subtle lips) and the Cocktail (smoky eyes, bright lips and face). She is open to listening to what you want which is also great. Would certainly recommend her if you want a natural yet perfectly refined look for your big day!

Simran Kalra was recommended to me by a friend for my bridal make up. I was really happy that I looked very natural and not made up at all. She understood exactly what i wanted and kept my look very natural. I highly recommend her to every bride. My sisters and me were very happy and received a lot of compliments on our natural make up :).. Thanks a ton Simran.

I cannot recommend Simran Kalra enough. We went to school together so I guess the fact we knew each others' style did make things easier for me. I wanted a natural look so we kept a very minimal base for my functions. I was very happy with the end result. She understands faces and since we had a trial a few months before, there was zero stress. Source

I first met Simran for my sister's wedding. She made sure each of us had a different look for wedding functions and looked our best. She knows what would would for your face and what would not. Since then for every wedding she made us( my mom, sister and me)look our best within the comfort of our home.I highly recommend her to every bride who wants to look most dazzling on their special day.

Simran was very clear about whated to do. She gave me smokey eyes and nude lips which everyone said looked fab on me and I have honestly never tried them before, but after the look I am convinced I need to have smokey eyes for atleast one event .

I finalized my wedding make up artist on a friend's recommendation as I didn't have enough time to get a trial make up and hairdo sessions done. I can't begin to tell how satisfied I was with her services. I reached late to her place against the booked time on both the days, like every other bride, after a long series of day events. I had a deadline by which I had to get ready and leave her place, but despite the time crunch, she got me ready in-time on both the days of sangeet and wedding. And the best thing? I couldn't have been happier with the make up. She made me look my best with very subtle colors and keeping it all minimal. She is absolutely talented, a perfectionist, doesn't over-do, very professional and extremely efficient, does everything right the first time. I would recommend her over and over again to everyone who is feeling lost amongst the plethora of options available.
