Origins & Founder

A pioneer and celebrity makeup artist of over 20 years, Khuraira Musa is founder and creator of Khuraira Cosmetics, a luxury, full-color cosmetics line for women of all ages, color and skin condition.

Khuraira educates women in the art of the looking flawless. Not only does she make them look beautiful on the outside, she makes them feel good on the inside by being a friend and a confidante. Her business philosophy demonstrates why every woman looks forward to an appointment with her, and why she has created a cult-like loyalty among her clients over the years. One of her clients once said as a play on words to the adage, “Beauty isn’t in the eye of the beholder; beauty is in the hands of Khuraira.”

Khuraira’s distinct style and expertise keeps her in demand. Working her magical touch, she has applied her innovative makeup techniques to some of Hollywood’s most coveted and high profile personalities, including Mandy Moore, Brandy, Linda Evans, Paula Abdul, Suzanne Douglas, Kirstie Alley, Natalie Cole, Dr. Susan Rice, Andrea Stassou, Wendy Federman. Khuraira’s bridal work with Trista Rehn, the BacheloretteABC Television Wedding of the Decade – has earned rave industry reviews.Khuraira Cosmetics - Bellanaija - June2014004

Khuraira Cosmetics are routinely featured in leading consumer magazines and media outlets, including People, Vanity Fair, In Style, Elle, Essence, Latina, Star, OK, Upscale, TLC, Telemundo, and on TV shopping “ShopNBC”.

Khuraira is grateful for her chance at success in America, which is a far cry from her humble African beginnings. Her life began in an orphanage in northern Nigeria after losing her mother at birth. She was later adopted by an aunt with little means and spent her childhood in a mud shack with no electricity and no running water. As a child, makeup was an outlet that offered a creative means to paint a view beyond her bleak surroundings. Khuraria used leaves to create henna colors for makeup. She was inspired at how the colors were so rich, opaque and filled with pigment.

Khuraira relocated to the United States to pursue her education and passion of makeup. This quickly led to a career working alongside makeup industry icons, such as Trish McEvoy and Laura Mercier. As a valuable member of Trish McEvoy’s national team, Khuraira traveled the world teaching women about the hottest makeup trends as well as helping them create their unique individual looks.

Later, as a national makeup artist with Laura Mercier and one of Laura’s personal assistants, Khuraira trained makeup artists in the art of achieving a flawless look every time.

In time and with vast experience, Khuraira decided to start her own color cosmetics brand. She saw an opportunity for a true makeup line for all women. Khuraira wanted to not only solve for beauty problems such as dark circles or discoloration on areas of the face and lips, but she was also inspired from concerned women who wanted to combine makeup with skincare that was quick, easy and long-lasting while still creating a flawless look every time. And so Khuraira created her own line and opened a boutique storefront to help create solutions for these women regardless of age, ethnicity or skin condition.

Khuraira’s humble beginnings are at the root of her cause-related endeavors to help make the world flawless one face at a time. Khuraira Cosmetics supports breast cancer survivors, sickle cell anemia, and education for African children.
