The Most Inspiring Muslim Beauty Gurus From Around the World

At Byrdie HQ, it's our MO to celebrate beauty from every corner of the world. The beauty customs of different cultures are unique and steeped in history, and by learning about them, we're able to expand our own perspectives (not to mention pick up a life-changing new tip or two). That's why we're proclaiming this week Global Beauty Week and paying special homage to women far and wide, from Thailand to Russia and beyond. Each day, we'll honour the beauty practices, trends, and traditions of our sisters around the globe—complex, intriguing, and versatile as they are. Enjoy!

When Covergirl named Muslim beauty blogger Nura Afia as an ambassador, we rejoiced. A quick scroll through her Instagram feed, and it’s clear why she was chosen; her account is a gold mine of product recommendations, transformations, and the full-glam makeup looks she’s known for. But Afia isn’t the only Muslim blogger filling our feeds with serious beauty inspiration. In honour of Global Beauty Week, we’re sharing a list of our favourite Muslim beauty gurus from across the pond (or just across the border) who are breaking boundaries and teaching all of us a thing or two about beauty.
