Hello and welcome to my magical world of beauty! My infatuation and love for makeup began with my mom’s Revlon lipstick at the young age of 3. I loved how beautiful it made my mom look and realized how makeup was a tool for women to feel empowered in their own skin. Fresh out of high school at the age of 18, I had already become the designated makeup artist for my friends and family. Through their support and word of mouth, I began PayalMUA…and the rest is history.

I currently work full-time as a professional makeup artist and beauty blogger catering to women of all backgrounds for their special occasions and life milestones as well as on-set for both print and digital fashion editorials.

While I’m based in Philadelphia, I’m available for hire to work internationally.


Shoutout to the following brands and media outlets I’ve had the honor of working with as a professional makeup artist.


My passion and dedication for the craft of makeup and beauty have allowed me to experience working in the bridal, editorial, and fashion worlds with brands such as Stila, Benefit Cosmetics, Seventeen Magazine, HoliChic by Megha, India Boulevard, and more.
