When a bride selects you as an artist on her big day, she trusts you with an important part to play, the day which she always dreamt of. It's an opportunity and duty altogether to give her what she's seeking from you.
Winning awards and hearts of people especially, he continued to create a benchmark and made sure that more and more people can reveal the artistic side of them, so he guides his students through his own experiences and help them to unveil the artist within them.
He shares, ' I think in my academy we make sure that the class is very friendly filled with openness and transparency. I always tell them to ask whatever you want to, clear every seeming doubt and just believe in yourself and I've actually observed a lot of people who joined with no basic skills and graduating as a Professional. Meeting and greeting them after years and realising that they admire you as their Mentor. For me Mentor is a big word. '
Where people used to see makeup artist from years now was whole different than today. It has not only generated employment and earning opportunities to people but it's a respectable work too. 'When I joined as a makeup artist my parents were not really supportive, they used to see makeup was a woman oriented career option, but now it's all opposite, we have alot of examples today, who being male have contributed tremendously in the industry', says Shahid.
