Generally, I am not a make-up person as I barely get my face done except I am attending an event. Even at that, I make sure the make-up is lightly done so that I am not searching for my face or maybe I am not just daring enough to go on an adventure with make-up. However, I do admire a good make-up that is skillfully done and someday, I wish to have a photo shoot done with lots of colors on my face.

She majors in air brushing and she is super good at it. When she did bring out someone at the conference who had acne on her face, she made this lady up and by the time she was done, all I could say was ‘Flawless’! Trust that her booth was full by the end of her presentation.

This is a woman who says her work has been turned down in the past. Who says your time won’t come? Who says you can’t be better? Who says there is no hope for you? Who says your breakthrough is not around the corner? Well, tell that person to visit the blog to read Khuraira’s Story here.
She seems to know what she is doing otherwise, there is no way a brand like L’oreal would appoint her their Make-up and Artistic director. She conducts their master classes and those who have attended her classes seem pleased with what she does. She also does makeup for quite a number of magazines in Nigeria.

However, I have seen her do her thing at one of the Genevieve Magazine Make-Up shoot and I love her style. For everyone, there is a unique style and blend. I do love her work.
This is one MUA who I look forward to handling my wedding look. I do not know if I can afford her but I am sure that she is the one I want to handle the job. I see her work all the time on instagram and the way she talks about her clients shows that she doesn’t just do face, she does people.

That is, she creates a personal relationship with her clients which is important if you are going to be doing my wedding look. You need to thoroughly understand what I like and be patient in understanding that I have a personality. If you are going to throw something new my way, you need to give me some heads up. I just love the natural look she creates. If her instagram pictures were not enough proof, I know someone whose traditional wedding makeup she handled.
