Read on to know how she entered the glamorous world of make-up to make her way to being the most talked about Make-up artist.



Amrita, initially saw herself being a successful businesswoman who would take over her father’s company, her parents also believed that, it was where she would find a good future. She then pursued her MBA and started to work alongside her father. As time passed by she realised that she wasn’t meant for the job. It was 2007 when she decided to give that up and took a big leap into the world of Makeup. She then took up  an advance professional Make-up course. After some grinding interviews she got through M.A.C cosmetics as an artist. Amrita received immense exposure and learned a lot during her time in M.A.C. Moving higher up the learning curve, Amrita then knew she was ready to start off on her own. In 2009 she started freelancing and she has been pursuing her passion ever since.

Amrita’s work has been featured in several magazines. Being the lead make-up artist for cover girls & for various magazine photo shoots, you’ll find her work in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Femina, Peoples, Grazia, Stylespeak etc. She then moved on to the entertainment industry and that was her entry into the glitzy world of movies and television. To name a few movies that she’s worked on –  Ek main aur Ek tu, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, Tezz, Love Breakup Zindagi , Shirin Farhad ki to Nikal Padi , Jolly LLB. Amrita is known for her excellence in bridal make-up and we can tell she has made countless happy brides. Amrita also has her own website. Give Amrita some make-up and she’ll make you look like a million bucks.

The FAB BAG Crew is amazed by how she makes the best use of make-up to create magic. Her make-up is subtle, elegant and classy. We met Amrita and she is a bundle of joy. Here’s snippets of our chat with her:
