Since the age of 12 I used to look at magazines or music videos and try and re-create the look on myself or others. I have always loved make up, and art. Vithya with her own makeup and hair.

Coming from a traditional Tamil family, becoming a beautician or anything creative was not an option, so I went to University and graduated with a combined honours degree in Biology and Psychology. I wanted to become a clinical Psychologist, instead I went to London College of Fashion where I pursued my dreams as a Hair and Make Up artist.

It took me nearly 6 years to make a name for myself. I am self-employed now and specialise in Bridal make up mainly. I am proud to say that I am an established artist within the Tamil community all over Europe. I worked for M.A.C cosmetics for nearly 3 years, and also did various projects with the National Portrait Gallery, British Airways, OK Magazine, Nintendo, Next Retail, short movies, and even did make up on Tamil celebrities like Simbu, and DD (Coffee with DD),Sneha and Prasanna.

I love my job; it is so rewarding. I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for my fans on Facebook (www.facebook.com/vithyamakeup) and Instagram (@vithyahairandmakeup). They are all so good to me! My future plan would be to get into the movie industry, so fingers crossed!
