Applying Henna on hands and feets is known as Mehndi and it is a very old custom and ancient art form, Indian weddings are incomplete without Mehandi ceremony, whereas makeup is also an art that beautifies your world.

Rafiya Rouf, a Mehandi and Makeup artist, born on 15 July ,1997, she had done BCA from Iqbal Institute of Technology and Management, Srinagar, now she is pursuing MSC in Information Technology from Kashmir University. She belongs to a middle class family and lives in Bemina Srinagar. She is really fond of Mehandi and Makeup. Since childhood she was interested in Mehandi and Makeup so she started her first experience as artist in mid 2020. It was here that she realized that she wanted to pursue her career in this field. She went on to study through practical experience, learning through trail and errors and self learning. She had done many bridal makeovers in these 2 years.

She had done Mehandi of her first bride on 13 June, 2020 in Srinagar, everyone loved it and appreciated it. Everyone acquired if she did it professionally and that time she thought in Kashmir where job opportunities are limited due to lack of private sector but there are new ways to start up and becoming an artist. She was getting calls from people she even didn’t know saying they loved her mehandi. So she started taking bookings and she started pursuing it more dedication.

Thankfully, my family is very supportive and broad minded they always encouraged me, they all are happy that i am doing something that I love. In the Kashmir Valley where taking up Mehandi and Makeup as a profession is still looked down due to social structure, but there are still girls who try their luck and go beyond the convention. If you believe in yourself no one is going to stop you. There will be some people who will criticize you and there will also be people who will believe in you. So just focus on your dreams. It gives me immense satisfaction that I am doing what I love to do.
