Jatinder Grewal, who hails from Nottingham, travels the world transforming Asian brides for their wedding days.

On Friday (24 November), students on the Level 2 Diploma in Theatrical and Media Make-up welcomed Jatinder and his model Aman to the college where he showed them how to apply professional make-up fit for an Asian bride.

He detailed the range of shades for an Asian skin, the types of brushes he uses for the flawless finish and went through the palette of shades which suit a glamourous wedding theme.

John Theobald-Bee, 17, said: “I really enjoyed this session today. It’s broadened my horizons towards make-up. I’ve learnt more about the various kinds of styles, ethnic make-up trends and made me understand and appreciate different aspects of make-up and how to apply brighter colours which are suited to a vibrant wedding theme.

“I feel more confident now if I was asked to apply wedding make-up for an Asian client.”

Jatinder, 22, has been in the industry for six years. He is self-taught and is well-known for his You Tube tutorials.

He said: “It’s a fantastic industry to be in. I first started practicing on my friends when I was sixteen and then I started to do bridal make-up and hair.

“I’m very lucky that I get to travel world-wide for my clients’ weddings. So far I’ve been to Italy, Monaco, Toronto, Vancouver and India and I’ll be off to Dubai and Thailand soon.

“This is the first time I’ve led a tutorial for students and it’s been a privilege and honour to be at West Notts College and show them how to work with this style of make-up.”

Jatinder completed a bridal look on his model Aman and also showed students the traditional Asian bridal jewellery such as the kalire on the wrist, the tikka pendant worn down the hair parting and the passa which is clipped into the hair and worn down the left temple.
