With a passion of photography at hand, Kainat Munir delved into the world of aesthetics as a makeup artist few years back. In love with colours and finding challenges an easy task, Kainat has created a niche of her own.
In her interview with Fashion Collection, she talks about the latest trends and skincare routines to follow.
Fashion Collection: How and when did you start your journey of becoming a makeup artist?
Kainat Munir: I am quite fascinated by colours and the application of them. It really intrigues me how colours can change appearances and persona of a person. This is my main inspiration to enter this field.
Fashion Collection: How would you define your style statement?
Kainat Munir: I do not follow any particular style statement and tries to adapt to a suitable style which is comfortable and stylish at the same time.
Fashion Collection: If you were not a makeup artist, what else would you do?
Kainat Munir: I love to capture images so I guess I would have been a photographer.
Fashion Collection: What are some comfort-zone-friendly makeup trends to follow?
Kainat Munir: At the end, it is all about comfort. If one is not comfortable with the style, it would definitely reflect poorly on a person’s personality. The safest bet is go with a simple look with not too much heavy makeup.
Fashion Collection: What has been the biggest challenge of your career?
Kainat Munir: As such there is no biggest challenge I had faced yet. I think my biggest challenge would be to satisfy myself. When I finish work, many times I want to keep improving till I get the best result and that is a challenge indeed.
Fashion Collection: What is the future of your brand/label?/where do you see your brand in the coming years?
Kainat Munir: Currently I am still working with one of the best brands and my aim is to think and plan to make this brand a success in the coming years.
Fashion Collection: What is your favourite celebrity makeup look and why?
Kainat Munir: I love the work of Dannal Azam from Lebanon. His work is not only creative but he also jells well with his clients.
Fashion Collection: How do you stay abreast with latest beauty trends?
Kainat Munir: Although a lot is readily available on the internet, it is imperative to participate in workshops and stay in connection with the industry to share knowledge about latest trends and ideas.
Fashion Collection: What is your personal skincare routine?
Kainat Munir: In my opinion, taking care of one’s skin is not tedious at all. I do not follow any rigorous routine however I make sure that my skin looks fresh all the time. For that, I drink a lot of water, cleanse my face thoroughly before I go to bed and apply sun block before stepping out of the house.
Fashion Collection: If you could change the world, what would you do?
Kainat Munir: Before changing the world, I would like to change myself for the better as the change starts with us.
Fashion Collection: Which 4 famous personalities would you seat at your dinner table?
Kainat Munir: Dannal Azam, Karishma Kapoor, Salman Khan and Imran khan
Fashion Collection: What advice would you give to your younger self?
Kainat Munir: I would like to suggest myself to take everything as it is as nothing is perfect in this world. Furthermore, to bring tolerance for imperfection.
Fashion Collection: What angers you most at work?
Kainat Munir: It really angers me to see people who are not sincere with their work.
Fashion Collection: Describe yourself in three words.
Kainat Munir: Honest, hard worker and persistent.
