The Artists I Admire... - Zaynab.Com

One of my all time favourite Make-Up Guru’s is Kevyn Aucoin – the man was a legend at such a young age. His passion was addictive much like my own I think 😉 his story is equally intriguing.. such a shame he left us too early. The books he published have become the ultimate makeup bibles and for me he was transformation King !!


Tariq Amin is most definitely one of the pillars of Pakistan’s Fashion Industry. He has been a part of the industry for the past 25 years. Admired by many for his work and hated by many for his candid remarks this man has transformed many a face. He was ‘edgy’ before most people even understood what it meant to be edgy! He came into limelight when he did Benazir Bhutto’s makeup for her wedding and then subsequently being featured in Vogue. Needless to say I am a huge fan and have drawn many an inspiration from the maestro in my formative years as an artist.


Sam Fine – is exactly that ‘FINE’ and is probably the definitive name when it comes to make-up for African American Women. Changing the way women of colour were made up. Favoured by SuperModel Iman as well as a host of other A-Listers. I have been an avid admirer for over a decade. Finally darker skinned women were looking warm and golden rather than grey and chalky. The man looks like nothing short of a movie star himself and is probably one of the most forthcoming Artists on Social Media… He never tires of passing on his advice to clients and artists alike. Love his women of colour transformations. The Fashion Scene owes this Guru a lot!!!
