Da Makeup Lab is an exclusive makeup studio specializing in makeup, hair and prosthetics, located in Versova, Mumbai and was incorporated on 30th July 2013.
Preetisheel Singh D’Souza and Mark Troy D’Souza are the founders of the Da Makeup Lab and are extremely proud of their venture that brings about more awareness on the use of prosthetic makeup in India. Right from character designing and basic hairstyles and makeup, to the creation of wigs, props and complex prosthetic appliances, this Lab has got it all covered.
Da Makeup Lab is extremely happy with the brands they’ve worked with and have displayed their skills on a wide variety of projects spanning film, television, TVC’s, web series that includes working with some of the leading industry organizations and artists across the country. With a proficient and fun team to work with, Da makeup lab promises to give their best and help connect the vision of the creative experts from various sectors, to a roadmap for execution and delivery.
Considering the very challenge of implementing prosthetic makeup in India, due to the lack of FX material supplies, Da Makeup Lab which is India’s first makeup and prosthetic studio, proves to be a one stop solution. The founders believe in using the power of makeup to transform an actor into a character and take utmost pride in their company that makes it possible. With a great fervour for creating realistic makeup and drawing inspiration from the world around to creating something extraordinary, this makeup studio helps you bring your imagination to life.
While Mark has a lot of experience in the VFX and animation industry, Preetisheel has always had a childhood fascination for developing creatures and characters and making them look believable through makeup that are otherwise difficult to achieve, which evolved into a passion for special effects makeup artistry later in life.
Preetisheel’s experience in the film and television industry has helped her master the art of beauty, special effects makeup and has already made her a favourite amongst the people she’s worked with. Her use of prosthetics has earned her acclamation amongst industry veterans who now completely trust her work and are willing to bank upon her with their prestigious projects.
Preetisheel has received a lot of recognition and awards for her work in “Haider” (IIFA) and “Nanak Shah Fakir” (National Award 2016) in the Best Makeup and Prosthetics category and BFJA 2018 award for Best Make-up and Hair for “Rangoon”.
