Hello, Thank you so much for stopping by! I am elated to show off my new website with a fresh new look. Although Makeup Expressions has been around for a while, the Blog is a new addition that I am SO excited for. I can't wait to share all my tips, tricks, client features and so much more.
For those that don't know me, my name is Rimpal and I am the Founder, Makeup Artist and Driving force behind Makeup Expressions. Here are some questions I am asked most often:
How long have you been doing Makeup for?
The real answer to this is as far back as I can remember. No joke, I have vivid memories of sneaking makeup to school in elementary and at recess to apply it on my friends, LOL. I spent most of my childhood playing "hair stylist & makeup artist" with my sisters, painting all over their faces! Having 3 of them I could always convince at least one of them to be my canvas.
Now if you don't count my early training years, I've been doing Makeup professionally for 9 years.
Where did you go to School?
I am actually primarily self taught. I do firmly believe that learning is lifelong and with that my promise to myself is I will never stop learning. I take pride in keeping up to date on the latest trends, techniques and products. I am continuously attending seminars, taking classes and working on creative projects in order to learn as much as I can and provide the best services possible as an artist. My most recent training pursuit brought me all the way to LA to learn one-on-one in an intensive course with world renowned artist, Tamanna Roashan of Dress Your Face.
Who has been the biggest influence in your life?
My Maternal Grandfather. I owe all of my artistic abilities to him. As an artist and architect himself he taught me so much about colors, sketching, painting, brushes and well a whole ton about life! Watching him draw and paint was my absolute favorite thing to do - I'm sure he didn't appreciate the 10,000 questions I had but always took the time to answer them with care and detail. I am forever indebted to him for seeing the artistic abilities in me and nurturing them.
What is your favorite part about your job?
All the wonderful clients that I get to meet on a daily basis. There truly is no better feeling then knowing you are trusted by someone on the most important days of their lives. After I am done makeup on a client and I pass them my mirror to have a look and they love what they see is why I do what I do.

SOME FUN FACTS:
I love weddings and anything wedding related. I love making faces beautiful. I love that every woman has natural beauty. I love to laugh, really loud & talk a lot. I am madly in love with a man who I know is my soulmate. I have no doubt makeup is what I was born to do. I believe styling hair and doing makeup is an art. I have the best family. Although I love weddings I hope to elope one day. I love that every wedding is unique, and every bride is lovely. I love that I still cry at most booking when Mom and Dad see their daughter as a bride for the first time… and hope for this forever.
