The Ultimate Guide to beauty - by Anjana Gosai

The World's first comprehesive beauty guide for Asian women.

Few make-up artists can lay claim to Aysha’s wealth of experience. Make-up artist to celebrities and stunning brides, she draws on over 10 years of experience in the industry, having been a MAC make-up artist and a familiar figure at catwalk shows, Bollywood film sets and TV shows.

What’s the secret to Aysha’s stellar success? Apart from being a leading light in style, she views her work as an art-form, seeking to transform and elevate to a higher form of beauty. It’s not just about applying make-up either – drawing upon a reservoir of industry experience, she is a guru on skincare and styling tips.

Like all top artists, her trademark look defines her art. Learning at the hub of the world’s leading make-up counters, she has developed a signature of distinctive eyes and dewy skin, wrapped in a package that draws inspiration from contemporary Hollywood glamour. Using elite brands such as Mac, Dior, Nars and Chanel, her work will leave any customer looking highly polished, particularly when finished off with an intricate or simple hair-do.

Impressively, her hair skills are all self-taught, with a heavy emphasis on western styles. “I specialise in hair,” she says, “and I’m always trying to create new, exciting things for my clients.”

Working from her plush studio in London for consultations and make-up classes, Aysha’s superb skills have seen her book clients nationally and internationally. Her work is regularly showcased in leading magazines such as OK!, Asiana Wedding, Asiana and Viya, and her stands are always a hub of activity at some of the UK’s top bridal shows.


Aysha isn’t called a celebrity make-up artist for nothing – she’s worked with some of the biggest and the best. Is it her calm demeanour or electrifying make-up skills that makes her a favourite among the rich and famous? Perhaps an irresistible combination of both. What’s telling is that unlike other flash-in-the-pan artists, Aysha is asked for repeatedly by satisfied celebrities – just ask Mahima Chaudhry and Salman Khan. Take a peek at just some of the VIPs who’ve been at the receiving end of Aysha’s magical brush:

Zoe Ball, Sophie Anderton, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Meera Syal, Mahima Chaudhry, Sohail Khan, Jamelia, Girls Aloud, Arjun Rampal, Kim Wild, Jordan, Rekha, Sri Devi, Pooja Shah, Preity Zinta, Bipasha Basu, H Dhami, Rishi Rich

Bridal services

Stylish, elegant and professional – three words that encapsulate the bridal experience Aysha provides. For the bride who wants to be the most exquisite person in the room – the radiant centre of attention – you need the best. You need Aysha.

From the moment you have your trial at her elegant studio in London, where you’ll flick through Aysha’s extensive portfolio and lookbook for inspirational ideas, she instantly puts you at ease as you chat to her about possible hairstyles and make-up looks...

Quintessential traditional, fusion styles, glamorous evening palettes and modern civil ceremony chic are all in Aysha’s repertoire as an experienced make-up artist who uses her years in the business to create a stunning set of looks designed specifically for you. Of course, Aysha understands that the bridal look goes beyond the make-up and hair – once you’re settled in for your trial, she can offer endless tips on skincare specialists, accessory companies and will be able to dress and pin your outfit on the day.

As any wedding expert can tell you however, make-up and hair count for nothing if your artist doesn’t have the punctuality and reliability to make your day run smoothly. If there’s one word that is synonymous with Aysha’s name (as many colleagues and clients can attest) it is that she is reliable. After all, your day is about making each moment perfect, and no one understands that better than Aysha.

Other services

Apart from being a leading name in the bridal industry for hair and make-up, Aysha is also the first port of call for many women looking for that ultra-special finish. Whether it’s for a prom, ball, landmark birthday party or special event, either she or a member of her elite team will create your dream look.

The team currently consists of Aysha, senior make-up artist Naila and two other members of staff – Halima and Sonia. Aysha says: “I usually get booked up a year in advance especially for weddings, so it’s great to have a team that I have personally trained, to be my ambassadors.”


Whether she’s doing a celebrity or a bride, Aysha’s ethos is that she doesn’t want mediocrity for her clients, but for them to look their absolute best.

• The standard make-up trial lasts for 1 hour and involves full bridal make-up and an approximate idea of the hairstyle. A great opportunity to brainstorm with Aysha about various bridal looks and to reach an understanding of what you feel will make you look stunning.

• The full dress rehearsal is a brilliant innovation for the meticulous bride. Lasting 2 and a half hours, for a higher fee, it involves full bridal make-up, outfit and hairstyle.


Good news for budding make-up artists or women who just want to learn new make-up techniques – Aysha offers one-to-one lessons in her chic studio in London. Passing on invaluable tips from her years working as a professional artist, you can learn from the best. As it is a bespoke experience, prices will be given on application, depending on the intensity and time span of the course.
