Even as she began her career has an Engineer with a leading Multinational Company in Technopark, Trivandrum, after completing her B.Tech, Archana yearned to follow her true calling… to become a make-up artist.
The dream became true – when she finally decided to say good bye to her day job to devote all her time to follow her dreams. She spent several months during the next few months pursuing a melange of courses – both online and offline, on the different aspects of make-up.
