The new league of makeup artists who make it big are those who not only challenge the normative but also excel in creating experience through their skills. Sonia Nazir is one such example. Her latest work has made her quite a sought-after name, and that’s why we can bet she’s definitely a next big thing of the industry.

 

Sunil Nawab

A name that is understated yet packed with brilliance, Sunil Nawab has time and again proven he’s as unique as it can get. He’s had a few nominations recently under his belt, and we believe the next few months or so would be enough to push him into the big league of talented makeup artists!

 

 

Models

 

Maha Tahirani

A dusky doe-eyed model with a look to her that makes her unique, Maha Tahirani has truly managed to carve a niche for herself in the last year or so. Not only has she been able to be a part of some commercial work but also remain active on the runway and editorials enough to be recognised and commended for it!

 

Sarah Zulfiqar

Mohtaram

Only a few fashion houses have been able to find their footing as swiftly as Mohtaram and it shows. Not only is the menswear brand pioneering new looks for the market, but they are also constantly reinventing and innovating things for men. They are truly a brand we believe who deserves to get the fame they have gotten.

 

9Lines

A pop culture enthusiast’s dream come true, 9Lines has been a constant game-changer when it comes to street fashion. They have a chic yet rebellious ethos and that makes for collections that have their own unique personalities to them. Nothing can be better than that, in our opinion.

A select few designers are able to prove their prowess in design and fashion like Annus Abrar has, and that’s why he’s constantly been a favourite for the new age of clientele. His ensembles are the perfect mix of the traditional and the new, making him the go-to person in the new wave of fashion designers and couturiers.
