After years of working as a model within the industry, Sonia decided to pursue her true passion for make-up and this is where her journey as a professional hair and make-up artist began. Sonia has had the privilege of being personally trained by industry leading make-up artist Lubna Rafiq and by industry leading hair stylist Aamir Naveed. She has also received product specific training from well known make-up brands such as MAC Pro and Illamasqua.
“My passion for make-up stretches back to a very young age. Make-up is inspirational – and enhances a person’s natural beauty. I love the feeling of making someone feel confident and beautiful because inner beauty and outer beauty work in synchronization.”
Sonia has an eye for perfection, striving to ensure that her clients receive that flawless finish both in photos and in person. She believes in providing a highly personal yet professional service to all of her clients – whether that be for your big day or any other special occasion.
“As well as achieving natural yet beautiful looks, I love to use my creative flair to experiment with unique new concepts”.
Apart from working with her clients for bridal and occasional make-up, Sonia also works as a hair and make-up artist within the fashion, beauty and media industry. She has been part of the official hair and make-up team for Miss India UK London and also the official fashion show make-up artist for the Prestige Wedding Fair at Englemere, Ascot. Sonia was part of the official hair and make-up team for a Bollywood episode of the E4 hit TV show, Made in Chelsea.
Sonia uses only professional and high quality make up brands including MAC, Nars, Illamasqua, Bobbi Brown, YSL and Kryolan.
