For many beauty lovers, YouTube make-up tutorials are already a guilty pleasure. But now with most folks stuck at home and wondering how to while away the hours, it’s the perfect time for all of us to amp up that make-up game. It’s pretty amazing that we can access make-up tips like how to expertly apply winged liner or quick make-up routines 24 hours a day. And that’s thanks to the amazing make-up artists who are happy to share their secrets. However, considering there are countless videos on YouTube, it can be difficult to make a choice, so to get you started we are highlighting one of our favourite regional influencers, Dina Akesbi.
The highly innovative Moroccan make-up artist and beauty influencer joined the YouTube tutorial club, where she has nearly 67,000 subscribers, in 2017. Dubai-based Akesbi is also known for presenting the beauty show No Filter on Al Aan TV. You can admire the make-up pro’s gorgeous looks on social networking sites like Instagram, where she has 1.2 million followers, Snapchat and Facebook too.
Akesbi worked as a model before entering the beauty sphere. She has also worked as a Senior Make-up Artist and Sales Representative for M.A.C Cosmetics. “Success for me isn't a destination, it's a journey,” Akesbi states on Instagram. The sweet-looking beauty has certainly covered a lot of terrain and is now considered a top regional player in the industry. She represented the Middle East, along with some of the other renowned Arab make-up artists like Hindash, Nora Bo Awadh and Bouba, during Make Up For Ever’s global Artists Rock event last year, which celebrated the brand’s make-up artists collective.
Recently, Akesbi has collaborated with Clio Beauty on the Dina Akesbi Collection. The make-up guru came up with two lash styles, which will take you from day to night, for the London-based lash company owned by another beauty influencer, Jacqueline Clio.
