Annie herself provides services mostly to the brides only so the brides can have her undivided attention on the biggest day of their life. She also tends to get fully booked up with brides up to a year in advance; therefore, she presents her team of senior artists to provide hair and makeup services to the friends, family and guests who wish to look glamorous for the big occasion.
Individually trained and handpicked, Annie’s team consist of highly talented and creative makeup artists/hairstylists who work with her regularly whether it is a catwalk show, photo-shoot or a wedding event.
Annie and her team are hugely passionate about weddings and brides.

If you are looking for a hair and makeup artist for your Destination Wedding, then you have come to the right place! Annie has provided services to countless brides at numerous beautiful destinations including Mauritius, Dominican Republic, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Portugal, France, Switzerland and many others. No wonder she is the first choice of most Asian Brides who are looking to tie the knot abroad!
From her extensive experience at various destinations, Annie knows how to adapt the makeup style to beat the heat and humidity. She picks the right products for the right climate to ensure makeup longevity. In her opinion, it is advisable to use products with a powder base versus a cream base for a beach wedding because they're better at withstanding humidity. She also recommends building up base products such as skincare, primer and foundation in thin layers instead of piling up too much in one go. And of course, she carries various magic products in her makeup arsenal that give full coverage but look and feel light.
Just as you don't want your makeup melting in the warm tropical weather, you cannot afford your wedding day hair to look like a giant frizz ball. To keep hair looking its very best and to beat humidity, Annie carries various quick fix anti-frizz products in her hair kit. She also advises brides to schedule a few deep conditioning hair treatments in the months leading up to their big day.
Annie is an allrounder! She will not only do your hair and makeup but also set your jewellery and drape your lehenga & dupatta to absolute perfection. Dupatta draping is such an essential service for all South Asian brides, and if styled correctly, it can amp your entire wedding look! Annie will immaculately style your dupatta (or two as is the current trend); she is well versed in all south Asian styles such as Gujarati, Bollywood, Pakistani and old school Lucknow or Hyderabad styles. She is one of the few hair and makeup artists around who also excel in saree draping service.
