Hi! Im Nabilah, professional makeup artist and beauty influencer from Cape Town, South Africa. Im currently based in Zagreb, Croatia for the last 5 years with my husband and 3 year old son. I have my degree in Graphic and Communication Design from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and have freelanced working in media agencies in Cape Town and Doha, Qatar. While I was studying I did commercial and high end modelling part time and this is where I developed my love for makeup! I learnt many tips of tricks from International and celebrity makeup artists during my time as a model.
As a previous graphic designer Im an incredibly visual and meticulous person so it seemed natural for me to pursue a career in one of my long time passions. I studied at JL Style Academy, one of the most prestigious makeup schools in Zagreb under the guidance of Lucija Juros in beauty and bridal makeup artistry. I learnt so much and loved it! I definitely knew I made the right decision to follow my passion. I love making woman look and feel beautiful. I believe makeup should enhance a woman beauty in the best way possible instead of covering it up. Skin is my favourite part of makeup as I believe its the base to looking flawless. I love clean lines and a polished and sophisticated edge.Currently, Im also the designated makeup and beauty columnist for Index Rouge, one of the largest portals in beauty, makeup, fashion and lifestyle in Croatia.
Personally, for me, makeup is not a mask, its art, a form of expression. I only use professional grade makeup, my favourites include, Mac, Smasbox, Becca, Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, Makeup Forever, Makeup Designory, Urban Decay, Estee Lauder, and Bobbi Brown.
For an experienced makeup artist for all your makeup and beauty needs please d not hesitate to contact me, looking forward to meeting you all and painting your faces!
