Happy Saturday! I have a special treat on the blog today. Yesterday I was invited at the opening ceremony of Natasha’s Makeup Artistry’s new branch. And I had the pleasure interviewing the fabulous Natasha, a makeup artist from Peshawar. She is an amazing makeup artist with many skills under her sleeve. She is an inspiration for everyone who truly wants to follow their dreams and work in the creative field. This girl is an incredible talent and an immensely kind person.
Interview With Natasha Hassan Khan of Natasha’s Makeup Artistry!
- What inspired you to want to be a makeup artist?
I have always been around make-up. When I was very young my oldest sister use to use me and one of my cousins to try out makeup looks on. Makeup is my Passion. I have always been obsessed with makeup and creating the different looks. I use to just do it for myself on before, but now I am lucky enough to have a wonderful platform of my own where I have beautiful people and beautiful models to express my ideas on.
- How did you get into what you are doing, and why do you do what you do?
Well, I have always, always loved makeup. My sister and my mom are the ones who got me into it. Exposure to the world of makeup with my first mentor has healed and opened up my world, which I am truly thankful for. Since makeup is my true passion and also I had a platform already, I thought why not to join it rather than working for someone else somewhere. I feel an inexplicable sense of joy to make someone’s day, to have the person walk out with more confidence knowing that they are beautiful. And most importantly my own satisfaction matters to me more than the clients’. That spurs me to do my best for them, giving makeup and hairstyles at Natasha’s that truly enhances their features, as well as having them feel special and well taken care of. I can be as creative as I want and often work does not feel like work, with the day filled with laughter, happiness and satisfaction at end of the day.
- What tips would you give to aspiring makeup artist?
In this industry it is competitive and tough to get a break. There are a lot of people who don’t succeed in it because they just give up. Following your dreams and not giving up is the key to a successful career. I just follow my dreams and my passion. My advice would be to follow your dreams and do whatever you are interested in. Have passion for what you do and stay persistent especially in the beauty industry as the competition is high. Work hard.
- Who is your role model?
My mother. She inspires me a little everyday. She is the women who can do anything in the world. Beside being a super mom, she an amazing and talented hair stylist. I got this all from my mother.
- What are the five words that would describe you the best?
Hardworking, open-minded, Passionate, a carefree person and dedicated.
- What did you want to be when you were a child?
At the very beginning I wanted to be a Sports girl! In fact, I am good at sports. But time changes, and here I’m as a makeup artist.
- What would be your alternative for your profession?
I cannot imagine myself doing anything else. I have my dream job, hobby, passion,
all in one. I feel so good working, doing makeups all day at Natasha’s Makeup Artistry that even the dullest days become good and happening. But anyways, an alternative would be either sports or another creative profession.
- What are the biggest challenge makeup artists have to face?
The biggest challenge in my opinion is that makeup artists are required to remain up to date with new trends and fashion. The fashion industry evolves on daily basis and the expertise has to be upgraded accordingly.
- What are your future plans?
As, I joined my mom recently, its been two years now. My future plans are to definitely take Natasha’s Makeup Artistry even higher. Also, I’m going to USA for cosmetology course for one year to master in this field. Later in future I plan on to start beauty classes so more people can benefit and gain knowledge on beauty and how to take care of themselves better.
- What is your advice to any youngsters who want to follow their dreams?
I would advice all the young girls to follow their dreams no matter what others say! If you feel that THIS is it, then just do it. Also, to fulfil your dreams and achieve all the goals you have to work hard. Every line has its ups and downs but if you are passionate and you are working hard, you will find the most breath-taking view at some point of the journey, and then another wave awaits. Do what makes you feel alive, believe in yourself, follow your dreams and never ever give up. It makes me very happy to see girls now a days working around and being independent.
