) is a theater kid at heart. she sang choir, played the oboe and the clarinet and loved cirque du soleil. “my mom and i would do a lot of community theater, and one of my favorite parts was the dress rehearsals and actually performing, because i got to play in my mom’s makeup,” she says. so when the 23-year-old started doing makeup tutorials, she wanted to incorporate that same love of performing onstage.
just like any great show, muslimah’s makeup tutorials start with pre-production: choreographing to the music, timing all the transitions and rehearsing the final reveal. “all the choreography, that’s all strategized and written down before i even film,” she says. “there’s just a whole bunch of notes on all the looks that i’ve done. it’s like a game plan.”
the final touch to creating a showstopping makeup tutorial, muslimah says, is to “just have fun and live your fantasy.”
