10 Badass Muslim Beauty Bloggers & Makeup Artists You Should Have Been Following, Like, Yesterday

In celebration of Muslim Women's Day, I've rounded up some of my absolute FAVE Muslim beauty bloggers and MUAs. From a banging smokey eye to a snatched contour, there are some ultra-talented Muslim makeup bloggers and artists that we should be supporting all day every day.

These Muslim beauty sensations are helping to break down stereotypes and redefine the faces of beauty. Although we're super happy that the beauty world has been taking small steps to better inclusion, there's still so much more to be done — we love that these lovely ladies are diversifying the beauty landscape (although it is not and should never have been their responsibility).

Nura Afia

This beauty blogger and Youtuber was named an ambassador for CoverGirl's So Lashy! BlastPro Mascara campaign and became the first woman to appear wearing a hijab in one of their campaigns. Nura Afia told Refinery29, "I hope [this campaign] will show Muslim women that brands care about us as consumers and we're important, especially hijabis. [We] can be featured on TV, [we] can be featured on billboards in Times Square. [We] can be represented." We sure hope so too!

Tamanna Roashan

Want to step up your contour game? Tamanna is your gal. Known as Dress Your Face, this beauty educator has tutorials and makeup classes on contouring, smokey eyes and more.

Amena

Amena is a beauty blogger and YouTuber with a seriously impressive portfolio. Not only is she the founder of Pearl Daisy, a Hijab company, but also a co-founder of Ardere Cosmetics. She was also featured in L’Oréal's True Match campaign. It's safe to say that she is killing it in the beauty scene.

Habiba Da Silva

This 22-year-old beauty vlogger created a collection of hijabs for diverse skin tones and designed for both men and women! Talk about breaking down norms and increasing inclusion. Talking about her Hijab Line, she told BuzzFeed News, “I wanted to do something where everybody was [included] and I wanted to showcase different people together. I wanted to break the barrier of having too many companies who just used lighter-skin models.”
