Shaan Mu Expert Make-up Artist @ Aashni & Co Wedding Show

 

Aashni & Co

Shaan MuSomerset House, played host to the top South Asian fashion and beauty experts for the much anticipated Aashni + Co Wedding Show in London.  Among all the embellishments, jewellery and lavish designs, Bride Icon caught up with the celebrity makeup artist Shaan Mu.  This cheeky chappie with a sparkling personality promotes a mega clientele list ranging from Bollywood stars such as Shraddha Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez to becoming a YouTube sensation in a short span of time with his outstanding expert beauty tips and masterclass tutorials.

 

Shaan Mu (Muttathil) began his career as a BSc fashion designer, and insists it all happened as a mistake!   No mistake when a chance offer to do a hair and makeup styling course in Delhi changed the direction of his career forever.  After becoming top of the class in cosmetics, he was certain, this is what he wanted to set out to do.  His career as a makeup artist began in 2006 unknown to the world of cosmetics, but 12 years later he holds a proud and gratifying catalogue of being part of 47 Bollywood movies, including 1 Telegu film and 1 international film.

 

We asked Shaan how it felt to be beautifying some of the most elite Bollywood stars and celebrities in the world!  Being the ever so professional he feels so blessed, appreciative and loves that he has been given such an opportunity.  No doubt saying it’s also been a struggle consisting of a lot of hard work.  However, by acquiring quite the business mindset, he has earned himself the recognition that he deserves as an accomplished makeup artist.  Shaan acknowledges being in the film industry is not easy and even super stars have to go through their tough times.  After struggling for years Shaan has reached the place he wants to be – although we think the world is still his oyster!

 

Shaan MuAs for brides, Shaan is clear on bridal looks and creativity, although he will advise and share his ideas on what would look good for a bride – he will always ensure the brides have their say, especially if they were after a particular look – recognising this is her day.  This celebrity makeup expert is a follower of trends and keeps up with them, but not necessarily all the time.  He would prefer as a beauty expert to mainly highlight their faces, especially around the eyes, lips and cheeks – the holy grail to the art of beauty!

 

 

Bride Icon couldn’t resist asking Shaan who would be the ideal icon that he would love to create a superior look for and, of course, internationally it had to be Kim Kardashian, who he says is a superb businesswoman in her own right.  Nonetheless, there is no doubt his heart is set on Rekha the Bollwood film idol who he considers a beautiful soul both inside and out would be the epitome of his career – we hope it happens Shaan!  We would like to say a huge thank you to Shaan for taking the time out to speak to Bride Icon at the Aashni & Co Wedding Show in London.
