to cake face...
My name is Leila Chauhan and I am the founder and the lead hair and makeup artist at Leila Hair And Makeup Artist Ltd. I started working within the wedding industry in 2011 and it was quite by accident! I was getting constant requests to do hair and make up for family and friends. I then decided to bite the bullet, take the leap and make it my full-time career. I can honestly say it's the best decision I have ever made!! I have always loved how hair and makeup can make you feel, talk, and carry yourself. The confidence it can give you can be life changing and is unique for each person. Since starting I have worked on advertising campaigns, London Fashion Week, TV, and music video productions across all genres.
I am very fortunate to say ‘I love my job’ it has allowed me to do what I love on a day-to-day basis and meet so many fantastic people. Seeing my work in national publications makes me beam with pride it also gives me the drive to want to achieve more.
My personal approach and techniques enhance each client’s style and own natural beauty, which reflects my motto: SAY NO TO CAKE FACE.
My previous jobs have always revolved around people. I understand how important it is for a client to feel valued. As a business owner, I take great pride in offering my clients an experience tailored specifically to their needs. I take in to account what my client wants and I use my experience and expertise to support them from start to finish. Most of my bookings have been achieved through word of mouth recommendations which I am extremely proud of! There is no better compliment than someone taking time out to tell people how good you made them look and feel!
