Iman Zaidi is a celebrity makeup artist and educator from Hyderabad. She is not only an extremely talented makeup artist / hair designer, but also a social worker who educates girls about hygiene and beauty. She is much loved by orphanage girls because she looks after the best gifts for them. Her gifts along with health care products include fancy hair accessories and cute items that encourage young minds to adopt a hygienic lifestyle. She was named for her prodigious contribution to the beauty industry by the Global Scholars Foundation. A foundation that recognizes the efforts and talents of select individuals and organizations. The field of beauty is widespread on a large scale but it is rare that professionals in this sector are recognized for their hard work and talent.
“Hollywood makeup artists are always in the news for their talent and creativity. They are valued and have the opportunity to represent their countries through their work. It is rare to see Indian makeup artists given the opportunity to represent their work on an international platform. Whether it’s the Cannes film festival or the Met gala, Indian artists, while extremely talented, are nowhere mentioned. I want to work harder and make a name for my country in the makeup industry. ”Enthuses Iman Zaidi
