Express September 28, 2011


Beauticians from all over Punjab took part in the city’s first bridal makeup contest organised at the Rawalpindi Arts Council on Tuesday.

Thirty different beauty parlours from across the province participated in the competition; each contestant presented one bride, who was then prepped up and adorned by the skilled beauticians using the most recent trends in bridal makeover. The make-up competition was followed by a ramp walk, in which famous makeup artists - Kami, Nusrat Rehmana and Naseem Raja - were appointed as judges.

The first two positions went to beauty parlours from Rawalpindi after their brides were declared “most perfectly and beautifully made-up”.

The initiative was undertaken by Rashid Beautician College of Arts Rawalpindi to encourage the work of young makeup artists from the middle and lower-middle class.

Beautician is an emerging profession that many young girls are inclined towards and are receiving training for in professional institutes, said Amina Khan, a model at the competition. She said the profession suits women in Pakistan.

A student of the Rashid College at the event, Shahida Bibi, said she aspires to open a beauty parlour to help her become financially independent and support her family.

PML-N MNA Malik Shakeel Awan, the chief guest, appreciated the efforts of the young beauticians and said the government will support the artists to start their independent business.
