Dimplle S Bathija is known for doing makeup at high-end weddings in Mumbai, destination weddings in India and abroad like Bangkok, Hongkong, Bali, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur & Dubai. Let’s know more about this journey from Dimplle herself!
1. Tell me something about yourself and your company
Hi, I am a celebrity makeup artist, Dimplle S Bathija from Mumbai and I started my makeup journey assisting Cory Walia also internationally trained from Bobbi Brown and trained under Pakistani makeup artist Annie Shah from London with more than 18 years of experience.
Amongst all the looks that I create, Bridal makeup is my personal favorite. It gives me immense pleasure to add glamour to the brides on their big days. I have worked with the reputed names of the industry like Urvashi Rautela, Giorgia Andriani, Anusha Dandekar, Karishma Sharma, Natasha Stankovic, Arpita Khan, Navneet Kaur Dhillon, Noyonita Lodh, and many more.
I believe in using only high-end makeup brands like MAC, Bobby Brown, Makeup Forever, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Chanel, Armani, etc. I always believe in updating myself with the current trends of makeup, hence I also trained and got certified by Brazilian Makeup Artists like Alessandro Alcantara and Raphael Oliver.
2. What’s your Competition advantage and Why can’t it be Copied?
When I started makeup there was exclusivity, and now there are way too many people doing makeup on various budgets. For me, competition doesn’t exist as I feel you get what you are destined for and if your work is good you will always be on the top list.
I believe in creating different looks on my brides depending on their outfit and jewelry keeping the wedding theme in mind. Your makeup can never be copied, everyone’s hand at makeup is different. So one cannot achieve the same look, the finish will always be different.
3. What Challenges / Obstacles did you face in your Journey so Far?
So Luckily I never saw any challenges until Covid took over, I was way too blessed to have a very smooth journey as my work spread through word of mouth and recommendations from one Bride to Another.
Also now Social Media is a great platform to showcase your work and Creativity so it’s easier to reach out to people and a lot of wedding portals listed me as the top 10 makeup artists of Mumbai.
4. What are your Expansion Plans?
I look forward to expanding and launching my own makeup brand and establishing a makeup masterclass globally.
5. Tell our audience more about your Failures? How should one Bounce Back?
I don’t believe in failures as I believe in hard work and I am a go-getter… But one should always be up to the mark and keep up with the current ongoing trends of makeup and keep creating good content on Social Media and connect with your clients and work associates that’s a good way to Bonce Back.
6. How Do you Define Success?
Success is believing in oneself and being passionate about what you do. Success has no limit as there is a saying that only the sky is the limit. So keep striving hard and never give up.
7. What would you advise to someone Starting up and particularly To Women Entrepreneurs?
My advice to someone starting up would be to learn from the best and get well trained and practice makes you perfect. So make sure to practice a lot before u start doing work professionally, so there are no trials and errors and have a good social media presence.
