I believe in myself. I believe in my talent. I believe in my passion. I believe I am blessed. And more than anything, I believe in my MAGIC.
I am Anju Dargani, a Professional Traditional and Airbrush Makeup Artist. I discovered my passion for makeup 7 years ago in Dubai. I was so drawn to the makeup of the local Arab women there, that I wanted to learn how to do it. I took it as a sign from God to start my career as a Makeup Artist.
I started off by taking a Basic Makeup course at the School of Fashion and Arts (SOFA). Working on my model during my graduation photoshoot, felt like magic. That’s when I decided on my business name, “Magic by Anj Dargani”. Even till today, whenever I work on a client, I feel, see and experience MAGIC.
After the basic class, I didn’t stop. I took course after course to further develop my makeup skills. I graduated from Beauty and Fashion Makeup, Airbrush Makeup and Hairstyling Course at HD Makeup Studio and Academy and then after a year I took up Bridal Makeup and advanced Beauty, Photography and High Fashion Makeup for Professional Makeup Artists at Maquillage Professionel. My thirst for knowledge still exists until today. I keep myself updated with the latest makeup trends through workshops, YouTube and by taking online makeup classes.
I am versatile. I love giving my clients a different look all the time. I especially love working on their eyes, as I feel eyes are the most expressive part of the face. I always make sure my work is neat and clean. I never let a client leave their chair until both the client and I are happy with the look.
I do all types of makeup — bridal makeup, debut makeup, makeup for fashion shows, kid’s makeup, makeup for print ads or advertisements and party makeup.
I am blessed to have worked with a range of celebrities, from beauty queens to TV show hosts, such as Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Phoemela Baranda, Isabel Roces, Sandra Seifert, Ginger Conejero and Sheena Vera Cruz. Once in awhile, I am featured as a Guest Makeup Artist for Mac Cosmetics, Rockwell.
I love blogging as well. I used to blog for www.glam-diary.com, you could still view all my beauty blog posts there. I also teach Basic Makeup classes.
I do Traditional Makeup and Airbrush Makeup. Traditional is the conventional way of applying foundation makeup through a brush or a sponge. Where in Airbrush is the latest trend now. It utilizes a airbrush compressor, airbrush gun and airbrush foundation. The foundation is applied through the gun which sprays the foundation evenly all over the face. Through this you achieve a smoother and long lasting makeup.
