THE FOUNDERS

NINA

Founder and Creative Director

Nina Ubhi | Makeup Artist

As one of the region’s most influential makeup artists, Nina Ubhi’s signature style, meticulous attention to detail and entrepreneurial spirit has built her an internationally renowned beauty empire.

With over a decade of experience and a team of dedicated industry professionals behind her, Nina provides picture-perfect makeup services to an elite, global clientele, and runs expert masterclasses where she reveals her trade secrets and techniques to achieving flawless, iconic looks.

Born in London, Nina grew up with a passion for art and creativity at a young age. Her love for beauty and makeup came later, when she was scouted for a modelling job as a teenager. “I was fascinated by the idea that the face could be painted like an artistic masterpiece. In every shoot though, I was never happy with the final look, so I used to sneak backstage and change things up, adding my own twist on it perfecting every detail”.

As well as a self-taught and published makeup artist, Nina worked for large beauty brands such as Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden and Kanebo and was also a magazine Beauty Editor where she collaborated with countless brands and celebrities for high fashion editorials. After launching her own brand, she became the official sponsor of one of the UK’s largest bridal show and grew her business to inspire others to be fearless and forward-thinking with their approach to beauty.
