I just turned the BIG 4 0, and I have to say that I’m more blessed than ever before. Being able to wake up every day, and do what I’m most passionate about in life-make women feel beautiful and confident- is one of the most rewarding blessings in my life. When I was younger, I never thought it would be possible for me to make a living off of working in the beauty industry, especially coming from an Indian background where having a ‘profession’ in finance, law or medicine was expected. Deciding that I wanted something different for my life, that I couldn’t ignore the creative itch within, was the first step to the rest of my life.
Now fast forward 15 years, and I’ve painted the faces of some of most beautiful women in the world, like Priyanka Chopra and Shahana Goswami, appeared in countless press from Marie Claire India to PopSugar Beauty, opened a brand new studio in the heart of Manhattan dedicated to brown skin beauty, expanded my KC-Makeup team and I’m launching a series of Masterclasses to help women that look like me…Indian, South Asian and Persian, realize their beauty.
At 40 I feel nothing but thankful. Thankful to my parents, sister and brother for their undying support, my #KCbrides and #KCclients that have come back to me time and time again AND referred me to their friends & family, and finally my Buddhist faith, which through daily chanting fuels my soul with positivity, gives me an overwhelming sense of peace and sets a blueprint for the manner in which I strive to live my life.
So what are my tips for how I’ve kept my face looking 20, despite adding another to decades to my age?!?!…See below.
