Shalini Vadhera

Celebrity Makeup Artist Shalini Vadhera cannot remember a time when she hasn’t been fascinated by the world of beauty. And this fascination has always reached far beyond her own home.

As a first-generation Indian-American, Shalini is no stranger to trips around the globe, with new cultures and histories constantly on her horizon. During her frequent visits to relatives, she would spend hours watching Indian women line their eyes with kohl; wondering at the flawless skin touted by the women of Singapore Airlines and the luxurious hair of Middle Eastern beauties. She began to question—what were the secrets to all of this beauty? It was this international exposure that sparked an enchantment with the beauty techniques of various cultures, and the seed of her lifework was planted.

A self-professed beauty junkie and a celebrity makeup artist by trade, Shalini knew that she had uncovered something. Something that every woman should know—that beauty can be found everywhere. She wanted to bring the fruits of her travels—pearls of beauty wisdom and discoveries of exotic ingredients—to women everywhere.

And Global Goddess Beauty was born—the skincare and makeup line that helps create awareness of different cultures and countries and all the great beauty secrets they have to offer. With exciting and unique ingredients, combined with fascinating time-tested techniques from generations of women around the globe, Global Goddess Beauty brings the entire world to every woman’s doorstep and is available at Sephora and on QVC.

Shalini continues to bring this global knowledge to her own television presence as an internationally recognized celebrity makeup artist and global beauty expert for several networks and cosmetics companies.

While completing a degree in international business, Shalini was given the opportunity to work as a makeup artist on NBC Studio’s "The Tonight Show." After numerous celebrity requests, she went on to work with CBS Studios, Disney Studios, "Hollywood Squares," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Survivor Reunions" and "Dancing with the Stars". Shalini has also made frequent appearances as a celebrity beauty expert on CBS’s "The Early Show," VH-1’s "How the Stars Get Hot", E!’s "Style Star," Lifetime's "Head To Toe," TBS’s "Movie and a Makeover," "Before and Afternoon Movies," "Soap Talk," "The Isaac Mizrahi Show," and "Smart Solutions" on HGTV. Her most recent work includes an appearance as a multi-cultural beauty expert on "Life and Style" and Entertainment Tonight’s "Celebrity Weddings Unveiled" as Hollywood’s leading makeup artist.

A skilled speaker, Shalini was the Revlon spokesperson for the 2004 Academy Awards, The Olay spokesperson for their Clarity launch, and was the national spokesperson for Lola Cosmetics on QVC. She recently worked with ChapStick on its 2006 Make Under campaign.

Shalini also does extensive work as a celebrity makeup artist, boasting a lengthy and impressive client list that includes Alec Baldwin, Brooke Burke, Cybil Shepherd, Simon Cowell, Tyson Beckford, Ty Pennington, and the cast of "The Bold and Beautiful." She was recently named "Best Beauty Expert" by San Diego magazine.
