Rumour has it that many A-list celebrities won’t even consider a campaign worth millions, except for one with these men on set. Mahira Khan, Ayesha Omar and Syra Shahroz aren’t the only fans of this elite stylist club but these men are followed by thousands. And why wouldn’t they? These stylists have lives that all of us want to live – full of travel, glamour and selfies with their celebrity bff’s. Below, we list the three of the most popular male make-up stylists that are making waves in the world of fashion and entertainment:
Bangkok is his second home and fashion shoots are his passion. While his specialty lies in bridal make-up, there isn’t any make-up look that he can’t recreate. No wonder he has over 40k followers on Instagram and is constantly on the go.
Khan opened gates to his brand new salon a week ago, where celebrities often mill about in their backstage glory. He has perfected runway looks, magazine shoots, morning show looks (yes, apparently we have a look for those too) and TVC looks.
Nothing gives you the seal of approval like being the trusted make-up artist of Pakistan’s sweetheart Mahira Khan. With over 28,000 followers on Instagram, Adnan Ansari is famous for winning celebrity hearts with his wit, charm, and make-up skills.
Another name that screams perfection is Omayr Waqar – who, by the way, has 22,000 followers on Instagram and 15,000 on Facebook. If you, like us, are a pro at Instagram stalking then you must’ve spotted him rubbing shoulders with celebrities like Ayesha Omar, Mahira Khan, Sanam Saeed, Syra Shahroz et al.
Waqar knows makeup like nobody’s business. Case in point is the recent TVC by Al Karam where Mahira Khan’s look went from barely-there to all-out-there (read: red lips and smokey eye makeup). He’s also a permanent member of the IT crowd. What other proof do you need to know that he is definitely the man? We believe these should be sufficient.
