Currently residing in the beautiful city of Cape Town. I practice as a freelance makeup artist and hair stylist, holding a complete portfolio of experience in the beauty and fashion industry since 2010.
Nimrah is my second name, translating as tiger or lion in Arabic and Persian respectively. I feel that Nimrah stands for my brand as it directly translates into my creative ideology: "I want women to be fierce, to strive for their ambitions and to turn heads as they walk up."
I grew up loving all things creative. After finishing my studies at Kohl Makeup Academy in 2010, I furthered my skillset by doing an advanced airbrush course as well as a hair course.
Post my studies, I joined Mac Cosmetics for two years; thereafter turning to the world of freelance for a year before joining One League Creative Agency.

I am renowned for my distinct ability to create clean, flawless, natural looks whilst also having a flair for the avant-garde.
As an artist of highly adaptive capabilities, I most often enjoy doing beauty, bridal makeup and high fashion editorials.
Makeup and a good set of blending skills have the power of transforming and enhancing- all in the name of confidence and feeling beautiful!
This is my passion, my prowess.
