ARCHANA MOHAN - PROFESSIONAL, FREELANCE BRIDAL MAKE-UP ARTIST IN KOCHI
Archana Mohan is a professional, freelance bridal make-up artist based in Kochi, Kerala, India. Make-up is THE biggest passion in her life, and she calls herself lucky enough to do what she loves most for a living. She ventured into the world of make-up as a professional in 2016, and has worked with 100+ brides during the past three years. Her long list of extremely satisfied brides speaks volumes about the quality of her work.
A B.Tech Graduate from one of the top engineering colleges in Kerala, Archana’s passion for make-up started as a teenager. Even as she began her career has an Engineer with a leading Multinational Company in Technopark, Trivandrum, after completing her B.Tech, Archana yearned to follow her true calling… to become a make-up artist.
The dream became true – when she finally decided to say good bye to her day job to devote all her time to follow her dreams. She spent several months during the next few months pursuing a melange of courses – both online and offline, on the different aspects of make-up. She went on to acquire international certifications in Air Brush make-up, and hairstyling, in the mean time. All her efforts paid off, and today she is one among the most sought-after make-up artists in Kochi, and in Kerala! While she is not making brides beautiful, she enjoys spending time with her husband – Hari, and their cat-babies – Ikru, and Boo.

Archana is a makeover artist whom you can trust blindly as she is too good in her skills, people with her level of skills are very hard to find.
Most important part of her work is – Her confidence, belief and ready for any last moment changes in the plan which are inevitable in any marriage.
And seeing yourself in the reflection , and satisfied of being the way you wanted to present yourself makes every efforts worth, you helped me to get there!
Thank you so much. Kudos to her, Great work buddy !! Keep it up

Thank you so much chechi for making me pretty & confident on my big day… u r such a sweetheart!
Archana did a party makeup for me and I must say she has done a wonderful job. She is highly talented and completely dedicated to bring the best of you on your special day. You are awesome.
Archana brings out the best of you. She is a pro in bridal makeup. Friendly, considerate and open to suggestions (though you will rarely need to suggest anything with her around). Another thing is she is swift with her brush. The best part is she will not make it hectic for you. I think the most relaxed part of my wedding day was the make-up session with her.

Archana did an outdoor photoshoot makeup for me, simple and natural. For the first time my fiancé loved the makeup on me. No complaints at all. Keep up the good work love
Leah Thomas, Adoor
Archana had done my makeup on my Engagement day .She understood exactly what I wanted and she was able to figure out what I would be comfortable in. Conveying what I wanted and making me feel comfortable in my skin was a piece of cake for her. My wavy and stubborn hair was put in messy curls and that really complimented my look. My makeup was on point and wasn’t cakey even after all of the outdoor shoot and endless smiles and tears. She has a good eye and her creativity just made be even more beautiful . I am really proud of how far along she has come .
My big day was made even more beautiful by this pretty lady artist. Thanks a lot dear. U r just awesome.

I chose Archana to be my makeup artist for my big day. We were able to build a good rapport between us ever since I contacted her first. She was very professional and pleasant and focuses on every little detail on what the client wants. She exactly understood what I want and did a beautiful job on me on wedding day. The best thing I liked about her work is she makes you look very real and natural and ofcourse beautiful.☺️☺️ Thank you so much for making me look my best.

Archana did bridal make up for me on my wedding day. I think she was the best choice I could have made to do it. Not only did she make me look fabulous with her Mac make up, but was kind enough to accommodate all my suggestions. I wanted a natural looking make up and that’s exactly what I got. I got many compliments for the same, all thanks to her. She is very customer friendly and has a brilliant make up case for better lighting during make up.
Thank you Archana

You Are Beautiful
“I am a dark/wheatish skinned person. If you live in India, you would know how dark skinned people (especially women) are considered as bad omen. I grew up hearing people mocking me about the colour of my skin. I have heard from people around me about how nobody would marry me because I’m dark skinned. More than a decade later, the scars of these wounds still hurt – at times. And, that’s one of the reasons why I decided to choose this profession. For me, make-up is not a method to ‘white-wash’ a dark person! It is a method to bring out the inner beauty of a person. My life experiences made me understand the truth that every person is beautiful. And that is what I do – when I dress you up on your big day. I know for a fact that – you are beautiful. And I bring out the beauty in you.” – Archana Mohan
