As a teenage girl she was always fascinated by the World of Style & Beauty. And while her friends were busy watching television in their spare time, she was more likely to be found with her head inside Fashion Magazines reading up on Designers, Models and Make-up Artists.Her Mother, a Salon Owner, was most definitely her First Source of Inspiration, her Most Positive Influence, and her Biggest Role-Model. Maybe it was the Artistic Genes, maybe it was the Surroundings, but her destiny had been etched since day one. At the tender age of 16, she had already decided that she wanted to pursue Makeup Artistry as her Profession of Choice.
Maliha has always believed in not putting any Half-Baked Amateurish Talents out there, and her conscience wouldn’t allow her to learn at her Clients’ Expense. She took years to train herself at institutes like Robert Fiance Makeup Academy, MAC, L’Oreal, Kryolan, Femina, Lahore Beauty Academy and others. Despite of being an Established Artist, she still attends all the Industry Seminars, Conferences and Trade-Shows, to continuously enhance her Knowledge & Skills.
The ‘Color Theory’ is very important to Maliha when it comes to Makeup, as well as knowing how to Balance Light and Shadow, Highlights and Contours. A Client’s Face makes a Perfect Canvas for Maliha to release all such Creative Energies. Of all things creative, Eye Make-up is Maliha’s favorite one of all, by far.
Maliha’s Main Strength lies in the Even-Toning of the Skin, hiding the Blemishes and Imperfections, and Matching the Foundation perfectly with the Natural Skin-Tone. She believes that the makeup shouldn’t cover the Natural Beauty, but help enhance it, to make her brides look the most beautiful they ever could, on their Wedding Day.
