About Jaspreet Ghai Kapoor
The Make-Up Lounge is an endeavor by Jaspreet Ghai Kapoor to fulfil every woman’s dream to look and feel beautiful. A dream that she saw for herself ever since she was a child. She always enjoyed experimenting with make-up and ready to give all her friends a makeover. While on trips with family she would always be found in the make-up sections trying her hands on every new makeup product.
Hospitality interested her and she completed her graduation from Institute of Hotel Management, Aurangabad. She worked with the Taj Group for a while and tended to guests at banquets, that’s when she realized there’s such a huge scope in India for Hair and Make-Up and this time she decided to chase her passion seriously. She headed to Mumbai and enrolled herself in a professional make up artistry course with ‘Fat-Mu’. She stood out in her batch and was offered a job in the academy. She got to assist her mentors and worked along with them for TV commercials and print ads like Garnier Fructis, Bru, Vaseline, GQ, Vogue and Dove to name a few. Her work was greatly appreciated and she realized she could start on her own and moved back to Delhi to start the ‘Make-up Lounge’.
Jaspreet’s vision for Makeup-Lounge was to build a place that would focus exclusively on Makeup and Hairstyling and not get diluted with other run of the mill salon services. Her passion to offer the best to her clients took her to London to the ‘Delamer Academy’ where she specialized in hair styling and later to New York where she earned herself an advanced certificate course in beauty and fashion from ‘Make-up Forever Academy’. While there, she also specialized in editorial and runway makeup. It's not just Jaspreet’s qualifications that speak of her - it's her experience that speaks on her behalf. Her clientele grew and included the likes of Asin, Nushrat of the ‘Pyar ka Punchnama’ fame, famous fashion photographer Vikram Bawa, Hemant Sud among many others. She did make-up for the movie Mirza, TV ads like Cadbury, Oreo, Colgate, City Next and her name and credibility in the industry grew manifolds.
Life as a ‘Make-up’ Artist
At the make-up Lounge Jaspreet continues to work with brides turning their anxiousness to prettiness, conducts workshops for working women, homemakers and anyone who wants to look and feel confident. She also maintains a chair at Delhi's premier fashion institute ‘NIFT’ as a guest faculty.
For Jaspreet, it’s not just about applying make-up but also making sure that her clients feels comfortable in how they look and leave happy & satisfied. She loves her job and finds it very rewarding and creatively satisfying. She travels all over the world and makes sure that she visits all the local beauty shops, absorbs trends & techniques and is upto date with global beauty industry.
Jaspreet takes immense pleasure in celebrating this beautiful journey of making everyone feel special so that they stand out in the crowd. Whatever your style be soft, edgy, classy, dramatic, glamourous she has all on her palette.
