ABOUT BENISH KHAN
Growing up in Kashmir I was surrounded by natural beauty and this transpired my passion of experimenting with colour and makeup. I learned to appreciate a spectrum of colours and mixing them together intrigued me.
I believe that every woman is beautiful and makeup can be used to enhance that beauty. Colour and makeup application are just part of the process. I love working with a person’s natural beauty and love the joyous expressions on my client’s face upon the reveal of their new look. I never realized that with a single brush stroke, I could boost someone’s self esteem and make them appreciate their features even more. It was this that pushed me to join a professional makeup institution and learn the tricks of the trade.
After graduating from Artists Within Makeup Academy in 2010, I worked for MAC Cosmetics in Calgary, Alberta and expanded my knowledge of various makeup products, techniques, and styles. I then founded Glow Makeup in 2011, as a freelance makeup artist. This calling opened doors for me to use my creativity and work with various well-established models, stylists and photographers in the fashion industry.
I soon found myself doing backstage makeup at fashion shows, collaborating with local artists at photo shoots and having my work appear in various magazines such as Zele, Fave and Institute. In addition, I have obtained certifications in makeup from Dress Your Face (DYF) and the Samer Khouzami.
I continuously strive to improve and learn the latest trends in makeup artistry adding new expertise to my skill set and level of creativity.
So now that you know about me, I would love to learn about you and your beautiful journey.

Recently, I had Benish Khan of Glow Makeup do my makeup and hair for a special occasion. Benish was very professional, understanding and creative. She listened to my requests for certain shades and also offered her advice and recommendations on what shades would complement my skin tone. The makeup was absolutely flawless and very natural looking. In addition, Benish was willing to share a few tips on how I could achieve the look on my own. The pictures taken at the event turned out perfect and I received numerous compliments on my makeup and on the photographs.

"Hey Benish, I honestly don't really do make-up often, so I was afraid of it being overdone, but Benish you gave me exactly what I needed with a very simple look! I really enjoyed having my make up done by you and honestly can say your postive attitude was very calming for a stressful day for me. Thanks again I felt amazing and I can't thank you enough for the work!"
