I suppose it’s no secret by now that Natasha Khalid is my favorite makeup artist out of Pakistan. In just a year, she has managed to completely change the landscape of how makeup artists are perceived in the country. She’s teamed up with the NFK team for a beauty shoot entitled “Beautiful Creatures” which appeared in this week’s Sunday Magazine.
Can you say stunning.
Through her editorial work we have already seen that Natasha isn’t your usual makeup artist, her talent goes far and beyond bridals and the typical runway makeup. This shoot is an ode to Natasha and Hina’s (Natasha’s mom and the hair stylist) love for creative makeup and hair. The otherworldly looks displayed by them take us into a world of unparalleled imagination which show their creative genius. My favorite thing about these looks has to be the use of a variety of textures in each shot. I love the use of powder, pearls, sequins and feathers paired up with crazy hair. The result is gorgeous.
As outlandish as the beauty looks are, they don’t come across as looking garish or “trying too hard” – which is the vibe I often get when I see experimental shoots by local beauty gurus.
