Meet Bianca Louzado, one of the most highly-regarded celebrity makeup artists on the beauty and fashion circuit today. Having honed her skills for over a decade with internationally-renowned makeup artists, Ms Louzado noticed a glaring gap in hygiene in use of beauty tools and makeup products. This motivated her to conceptualise the country’s first-ever, cosmetic-sanitising label, Code Beauty.
The onset of COVID-19 has provided her label a big push, given the concern over hygiene and sanitisation following the pandemic. With uniquely-formulated cosmetic sanitisers, anti-bacterial cosmetic sanitising wipes and hand-poured cleansing balms for brushes and sponges, Mumbai-based Code Beauty ensures that beauty and hygiene need not be mutually exclusive. In an enlightening chat with Sharmila Chand, Ms Louzado shares her strengths, weaknesses, hobbies and other interesting details.
