A double major in chemistry and food technology, Bianca Louzado initially wanted to set up a wellness center. Soon, she realized she wanted to try different things. She went on to become a model, a VJ, and even a flight attendant.
Her father played an instrumental role in her becoming a makeup artist. “My late father asked me, “You love makeup so much, why you don’t look at that segment?” Thus, began Bianca’s journey of honing her makeup skills. Over time, she learned from over 50 renowned artists, including Pati Dubroff, Mario Dedivanovic, Alex Box, Bobbi Brown, and many others.
Today, her clientele includes names like Priyanka Chopra, Dia Mirza, Sachin Tendulkar, and Sania Mirza.

It must not have been an easy task to create a special place for you in the beauty world. Share input that sets you apart in the world of beauty and make-up.
Not many make-up artists had adopted the no-make-up makeup look trend on a bride.
I started using nude lipsticks on brides in 2010 when everyone would say “Why does Bianca use nude lip colours on a bride, who uses nude lipsticks on a bride?! Hence being able to change the mindset that a bride has to wear only red lips or bright coloured lipsticks and look brighter than her skin tone is something that I knew I had to change.
What sets me apart is that I do not have managers answering my calls and I want to have a direct connection with my bride and be able to give her first-hand information rather than having it go via a manager
I hate using run-of-the-mill hair accessories and making a bride look over-accessorized
It must have been a challenge to convince your family that you wanted to pursue a career in the field of make-up and beauty. Share your initial challenges and how you overcame them
I stepped into the entertainment industry in 1999 as a VJ with the music Channel; CHANNEL V. Post that I was modeling and then was a flight attendant with an international carrier. I flew for a decade and then the job felt a bit monotonous, I knew I had something in store for me but I couldn’t put my finger on it.
It was my late dad who was watching TV with me one day and suddenly drew my attention to the fact that I was good at art and also had that knack for doing lovely make-up on my friends and that I could pursue makeup. It was my parents who paid for my first make-up course, my make-up kit, and my make-up products. I am ever so grateful that they were so liberal and allowed me to have the freedom to choose a career that was my passion.
