The Barat queen. Every Barat makeup is ironically done by Madeeha’s. One of the finest artists and with the most satisfied customers, Madeeha’s is everyone’s favorite. Overall, the bridal packages offered are good. Madeeha’s signature makeup look costs around Rs.50,ooo . The makeup looks involve subtle eye makeup, great hair styling mostly with flowers added in too and the dupatta setting is absolute perfect.

Drawback: Since Barat involves shades of red and maroon mostly, the final look has the possibility of turning out either great or completely disastrous. While Madeeha’s makes sure that you do not end up looking like a disaster, but most of the times the bride ends up looking  30 years older than her age (thanks to the bold makeup).

So Excellent techniques with imported cosmetics and years of experience give you Amina Raja.

Drawback: The package. Mostly brides are interested in Packages that include a Professional Photography session in it as well. Being new, Amina Raja is still work-in-progress. Plus, some brides are not comfortable paying Rs.95,000 to a newbie.

If you feel that all these Bridal makeup artists are charging a lot, then i must state a fact here :

Bridal Makeup services in Lahore are being offered at twice the price of what they are being offered in other cities.

While a Makeup Package in Karachi ranges from Rs.20,000-35,000, the starting price in Lahore is Rs.50,000. But this is because of the package and other services included in it. Whatever is the case, Brides in Lahore, when it comes to bridal makeup, the only thing that you should be concerned about is the overall experience. Makeup is being offered not just in these signature salons, but at many other salons. But what makes these names stand out from the general crowd is how they treat their clients.
