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 (very 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 and elevate their everyday lives. If you’d like to book a beauty session, virtual or IRL, please send an email to me at hello@thepatranilaproject.com. I look forward to hearing from you!


Join 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 and Instagram. Instagram is my jam!

In beauty & brilliance,

xo Patranila
