Sarah is a life long lover of chocolate, licensed professional counselor and a multi-disciplined artist (couldn't just pick one). While doing her masters in counseling psychology she was also working as a makeup & henna artist as well as doing event photography. After her psychotherapy internship was completed, she attended makeup school in Hollywood to learn more about artistry. In 2009 she created The Transformation Studio: a wellness and beauty center. A year later, she started a beauty line called Chamak "sparkle," as an homage to the South Asian culture and art and was delighted to see it growing steadily. In 2010 she started teaching professional makeup artistry classes Chamak Beauty Academy. The Chamak concept evolved into a lifestyle brand including ready to wear cosmetics, organic skincare including a popular custom blending service where clients come to make custom made products tailored to their skincolor, skin type, personality and style.
Though, before any of her other artistic passions began, her first love was cooking and baking sweets. Sarah's mom, Nayyar is an amazing cook and passed down her love for culinary art to her two daughters. Also, Nayyar comes from three generations of jam/jelly making expertise. We are pleased to feature her delicious jams in some of our chocolate flavors. After creating Chamak Cosmetics, Sarah decided to expand the line to also showcase gourmet confections inspired by her culture. In August 2015, after the demand from customers for a stand alone store was hard to ignore, Sarah opened Chamak Cosmetics & Chocolates: shop, beauty lab. lounge.
