Mickey Contractor is a legend in the makeup industry.. Sure, you know Mickey does makeup, but his name is actually Mehernosh Contractor and he first started out wanting to do hair!! A coincidental run-in with legendary actress Helen, where she advised him to assist a makeup artist, led him to where he is today.At 150k followers strong on Instagram, Contractor's hands have been behind many iconic Bollywood beauty looks you've seen on the big screen, including Kajol and Rani Mukerji in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Karisma Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit in Dil To Pagal Hai, Preity Zinta in Kal Ho Na Ho, Kareena Kapoor Khan in 2001 hit Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (he even won an IIFA Award for Best Makeup for this one) and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil(2016). Most recently, he has worked with Kapoor Khan for Veere Di Wedding, where her looks were deeply appreciated and picked on as trends.Also, Mickey has worked on countless magazine covers and editorials. While his first was Vogue India December 2008 cover shoot with Kareena Kapoor Khan, he worked on covers with Deepika Padukone, Kajol and Jacqueline Fernandez; Madhuri Dixit Nene in 2011; Mehr Rampal, Kajol and Alia Bhatt in 2012; Parineeti Chopra in the next year; with Jacqueline Fernandez in 2015; along with cover shoots with Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Navya Naveli Nanda in their first ever shoot together in 2017, and Nita Ambani in the anniversary issue.
With some legendary work behind him, making Mickey Contractor MAC’s Director Of Makeup Artistry in India was a no-brainer! All the products in his collection are dedicated to Indian skin. This way you don’t need to worry about them suiting your face .As the Indian film industry’s most revered makeup artists, as the director of makeup artistry for M.A.C India, as the only makeup artist in the world to bring out his eponymous range with M.A.C, not once but twice. Given that he is also the first event ambassador M.A.C cosmetics has ever had. It’s truly phenomenal to see the sheer amount of splendid work this artist has done over the years.
