What do all these actors, characters, and films have in common? Well, besides some of them featuring knockout performances, they all boast some magical makeup courtesy the immensely talented Preetisheel Singh. The lady isn’t knew to the world of Bollywood, having done makeup previously for films like Housefull 3, Rangoon, Talwar, Mom, Shivaay, and Haider among others. But, 2018 has been a real turning point in her career, having made a mark with some of the best looks of the year, and emerging as the new got-to makeup artist for Bollywood filmmakers.

Though Preetisheel’s work hasn’t gone unnoticed by moviegoers amidst some of the great performances her makeup and prosthetics rest on, her name has flown under the radar as is the bane of all technicians in the business. However, that’s not the case with her peers, who’re not only in awe of her talent, but some have also credited her with changing the game in the business as far as her profession is concerned.

Preetisheel Singh will next be designing the eighteen different looks for John Abraham in his espionage thriller, Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW), for which she has already begun working with the actor. John informed us that the makeup takes 4 to 5 hours just for application, and the two begin prepping daily for the same as early as 4 in the morning.
