Owner/Lead Makeup Artist
In high school I started working in the cosmetic retail industry and I continued to do so while studying in college and university. Over the years I have gained more than 10 years of cosmetic retail experience, where I received training from various companies in the industry. This gave me access to the top trends, products and brands first hand. In early 2017, I decided to venture off on my own and that's when Prerna & Co. was established.
1. Always Learn: Regardless of years of extensive industry knowledge and experience, I make it a point to consistently learn and grow as an artist. I am always taking one-on-one classes with other well-known artists and/or spend hours online researching.
2. Always Provide Quality: My aesthetic for makeup is to concentrate on what looks good on a person based on their; features, unique needs and preferences rather than just being trendy. I am very detail oriented and spend ample time on each client. My client’s happiness is my ultimate goal.
BRANDS I USE:
Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel, Too Faced, Tarte, Make Up For Ever, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, Nars, MAC, Becca, Hourglass, Kett Cosmetics

"Prerna was a dream to work with! Not only was she professional, she was very personable and charismatic. I felt as if I had known her for years - even though it was our first meeting. I was drawn to her work through her Instagram portfolio and was fascinated by her client's before and after photos. Though I had searched and looked through many MUA accounts to do my wedding makeup, Prerna's work portrayed exactly what I was looking for... "a classic glam" bridal look. She and her associate MUA also did the makeup look for my entire bridal party, MOB and MOG. They all looked nothing short of amazing! The MUAs had timers and were very punctual and time efficient to make sure every bridesmaid was completed in an equally timed manner. The products they used were all brand name and customized to specifically suit each of my bridal party's skin - both in tone and in texture. Prerna is a perfectionist who pays very close attention to every detail and will not settle for less than the best for her clients. She welcomes all requests and encourages her clients' honest opinion of her work. She is more than willing to make adjustments to a makeup look to keep her clients' happy and looking flawless. She even lets you know the exact products she used and advises on techniques for application as well as skin care. Her experience, background and natural talent is undeniable; and her being beautiful inside and out is a definite bonus. Thank you Prerna for all your hard work and for making my wedding day absolutely perfect!"

I got my makeup done from Prerna for my parent’s 25th anniversary party, and saying she did a good job would be an understatement. I hadn’t gotten my makeup done professionally in almost 7 years, because I had a bad experience the last time that I did, so naturally I was a bit hesitant. One of my good friends recommended Prerna to both me and my cousin. I had seen Prerna’s work on my friend, which I really liked – so I was more at ease when I decided to book her for this party.
I don’t know much about makeup, so I didn’t have any specific instructions for her. I just didn’t want to look too overdone or “cakey” – so I told her to do what she thought would look best (and I’m glad I did). Makeup artists definitely do know what would suit their clients best, so I’m glad that I didn’t try to have control over the look that she wanted to create. I have very evident dark eye circles which needed colour correcting and I couldn’t even have imagined them looking as good and natural as they did once she was done.
The makeup stayed in place all night long – all throughout an intense dance performance, clothing changes, and more dancing after that. My makeup looked fresh and in place all the way up until 5AM the next day when I was finally ready to wash it off (I wore it from 3PM to 5AM the next day).
I like that she takes her time with her clients and nothing is rushed – she makes you feel super comfortable and is easy and nice to talk to. She did an awesome job on me and my cousin. I will definitely be booking her again for future events, and have already recommended her to family and close friends.
