Let’s talk beauty.

Hello and welcome to my magical world of beauty! My infatuation and love for makeup began with my mom’s Revlon lipstick at the young age of 3. I loved how beautiful it made my mom look and realized how makeup was a tool for women to feel empowered in their own skin. Fresh out of high school at the age of 18, I had already become the designated makeup artist for my friends and family. Through their support and word of mouth, I began PayalMUA…and the rest is history.

Shoutout to the following brands and media outlets I’ve had the honor of working with as a professional makeup artist.

The Gossip

Last April one of my best girls gifted me with the amazing talents of Payal for my wedding. She did both my hair and makeup and made me look AND feel amazing on one of the most stressful days of my life! I couldn't have asked for a better companion during that time. She kept me calm and made sure I was happy every step of the way. Supremely professional (she has an amazing kit!) and incredibly friendly, Payal put me at ease. I had already seen her talents displayed in photos taken of my friends, but my wedding photos came out amazing. I looked.. So... ethereal lol!

Payal was so wonderful to work with! Payal was incredible in getting very close to the look I had in mind for my mehndi. She was extremely flexible and stayed true to my wish for having minimal makeup over my skin. For both occasions, she arrived timely, leaving ample time for any change of plans. I mostly loved the delightful conversations we shared during the makeup as well as the trials preceding D-day! She is so passionate about the work she does and motivational to all around her.

"Payal not only made me look stunning on both my sangeet and wedding day she is the utmost professional. Always early so that I wasn't waiting on her, going the extra mile by staying back for touch ups, providing tips on how to make my look last, etc. I enjoyed working with her so much I have told my sister and friends to use her for their upcoming weddings or events. Her pricing is fair, her work is impeccable, and she is a joy to be around. She is Philly's best kept secret!"

-Sonia Dewan , Bridal Client

"There are no words to use to describe how amazing Payal MUA is!! She is 100% professional, on time, and always carries a positive vibe. It is easy to get a hold of her, she'll always respond! I was beyond ecstatic with both my wedding and reception look! I would recommend her services to any bride. Plus, her team is also amazing... my bridesmaids lived their hair and make up!"
