Forever fascinated by the world of colour, art and fashion as a child, Vithya’s passion lead her into the vibrant world of makeup where she learnt to master the art of creating the picture perfect blushing bride.
A self-taught artist at large, Vithya first picked up the basics at the University of Arts, London College of Fashion and later advanced her skills with a course with Pink Orchid Studio in Toronto, Canada.
Her first brush with professional makeup was at MAC Cosmetics, Harvey Nichols, where she trained for 3 years before carving her niche in the Asian Bridal hair and makeup industry.
Over the course of 9 years her work has caught the attention of many, opening up avenues to showcase her talent on numerous fronts, including work for Vijay TV Awards, c0-hosting the show Nadana Rajas on IBC Tamil TV, attending as guest judge for Deepam TV, and also giving career talks at schools and events. Her work has been published in UK’s top Asian Bridal Magazine KHUSH, and interviews and articles on the likes of Huffington Post Canada.
She has worked with many South Indian movie stars including Nayanthara, Udhayanidhi, Simbu, Vidyu Raman, star couple Sneha and Prasana, Amy Jackson, Director Bharathyraja, TV host DD, and Big Boss star Raiza Wilson, among others.
Vithya has recently embarked on conducting Masterclasses, where she demonstrates Bridal looks and teaches the techniques and skills involved to create these looks. She is the first Tamil makeup artist to teach these classes internationally. Vithya hosted successful classes in London, Chennai, Zürich, Kuala Lumpur, and has classes lined up in Toronto and Sydney this year, and recently had the honour of doing an Asian Bridal Masterclass for Bobbi Brown in their flagship store in Covent Garden, London.
A new venture for her is YouTube, being a vlogger with over 100K subscribers. Her most popular video, a Saree draping tutorial, has over 4 million views.
Vithya is currently based in Pinner, London, and caters to clients all over the world.
