About Patranila

pronunciation | (pah-trah-KNEE-lah)

Hi Lovely, I’m glad you’re here! If you’ve been a reader since the beginning, you may remember that this little corner of the web was called My Beautifully Brilliant Life. It was an eclectic mix of things I found beautiful and brilliant. As my life has changed this space has evolved into The Patranila Project — a beauty and lifestyle space with occasional glimpses of my life as an actress, director and producer.

I’m a native New Yorker, beauty consultant and self-proclaimed natural hair guru with a penchant for choosing the perfect lip gloss. I help friends (and strangers) choose the best products to enhance their own unique beauty. If you’d like to book a session, virtual or IRL, please send an email to me at hello@thepatranilaproject.com. When I’m not working my day jobs, I’m forever on the hunt for great products, experiences and people that are both pretty and smart.


Thanks for stopping by and letting me share a few of my favorite things with you! If you’d like to reach out, please send an email to Hello@ThePatranilaProject.com and be sure to sign up for my monthly Pretty Smart Newsletter AND my FREE 5-Day Mini Beauty Boot Camp where beauty begins as an inside job!

You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. Instagram is my jam!
