"My passion in life is discovering the exotic," says celebrity makeup artist Shalini Vadhera, whose Global Goddess Beauty line has taken the world by storm since its exclusive 2006 launch in Sephora stores. Within one year, it has enjoyed unparalleled popularity, with a cult following of her Coconut Amla Hair Oil and reaching #1 status for her Exotic Eyes Blackest Black Mascara at Victoria's Secret.
The sights and sounds of her personal journeys echo in each captivating notion behind Global Goddess, an exotic yet elegant palette of skincare and makeup that has drawn overwhelming success. The playful colors of the pink city of Jaipur; the rush of a desert sunrise over the Serengeti; the peaceful serenity behind the bashful glance of a geisha. All are captured within the intriguing combination of Vadhera's global inspiration, mixed with textures and scents that transport the senses.
This triumph over her own adventures emanates through each hand-chosen ingredient in this luxurious line, giving way to sought-after products that enchant. "Life is a journey. Finding ways to help women look good and feel good is the best part," says Vadhera. Global Goddess affords every woman this uplifting self-awareness.
Her international exposure garnered through a love of travel and an overseas family sparked an enchantment with the beauty techniques of various cultures, and it was here that the seed of Vadhera's lifework was planted.
"I've have always been inspired by the secrets behind the beauties across the globe," she remembers, as she is struck with memories of watching Indian women line their eyes with kohl; longing for the flawless skin touted by the women of Singapore Airlines and the luxurious hair of Middle Eastern beauties. "I wanted to bring these secrets within reach."
Today Vadhera continues to pave her way through the competitive beauty arena, combining her global savvy with an intense passion for the unique and striking, calling every twist and turn of industry an adventure of its own.
Educated with an international business degree, Vadhera has attracted the attention of A-List celebrities and popular entertainment outlets, where she shares her knowledge and inspiration through spokesperson and television work, guest hosting, and special appearances. She recently captivated audiences of ABCs The View and NBC's THE TODAY SHOW. She is currently working with NBC Universal to develop a show based on her celebrated book "Passport to Beauty-Secrets and Tips From Around The World for Becoming A Global Goddess" [St. Martin's Press, May 2006], which hit #1 on Health and Beauty lists two days after it's release. It is this sought-after status that has led Vadhera to be named the iVillage.com spokesperson, Host of Makeover Centrals About Face and "Global and Gorgeous" by The NY POST.
Global Goddess Beauty is sold at retailers worldwide, online at www.globalgoddessbeauty.com and on QVC internationally.
