A career change from Investment Banker to Make-up Artist … Binndi Survana tells us all about it!

In her own words, Binndi tells us all about her experience here at Delamar Academy and her resulting career in India. 



When I decided to switch careers from being an Investment Banker to a Makeup Artist, it was quite a gamble! I wasn’t sure how things would work. Though I was always fascinated with makeup, I was quite raw at it especially from the professional point of view. All I knew was, if I am changing my career at this point I have to learn from the best; I started looking up for makeup academies not only in India but across the globe. After thorough research, Delamar topped my list in every possible aspect.

After my telephone and skype interview, I was constantly in touch with Monika from Delamar who would always promptly answer the hundreds of questions I had about the academy: the course, its content, future prospects, etc.

During my course, I not only received guidance in building up my kit with some of the premium world class products but got to learn the tips, tricks and techniques from some of the best tutors in the world – who have worked on Game of Thrones, movies like Cinderella and on fashion icons like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. In addition to that I also had opportunities to attend masterclasses by artists of the top makeup brands like Kevyn Aucoin, NARS, etc.

Immediately post graduation, I got an opportunity to work with one of the best makeup artists in the industry, Bianca Louzado who also trained at Delamar and is now one of the top make-up artists in India (you can see her Instagram here), for FBB Femina Miss India 2017. I have also worked on several projects including Lakme Fashion Week, Mrs Maharashtra, etc. within just a few months post graduation. I have also conducted trainings on personal makeup and grooming for models for international pageants.

Choosing Delamar turned out to be one of the best career decisions for me and there has been absolutely no looking back ever since I decided to go for it! Special thanks Monika who kept me motivated even after graduation, my tutors Joanne, Shama, Holly, Nikki and my lovely classmates who provided constant support and motivation to me at all times. I have assisted Bianca Loudazo and worked on big teams full of Delamar graduate since. 

For anyone who needs any kind of information on the course, kit, classroom or just anything about the academy, I’ll be more than happy to help! You can reach out to me on binndisuvarna@gmail.com
