Global Make-up Artist Nariman takes us through his rock glam look for band, The Darkness!
Can you tell us about the chosen look? What was the inspiration for it?
My photoshoot with The Darkness for their new studio album release. Their music, album cover & style inspired me
What products did you use to create the look?
I prepped the skin with Huda Beauty skincare & Glow Coco Hydrating Mist. I used Armani Beauty concealers & luminous foundation to create an even/radiant base. I brushed the brows and used Huda Beauty bombbrow pencil which is as thin as a needle to create super fine, hair stroke finish look. And only on Justin I wanted a super soft sexy dark plum eyes… I used Huda Beauty ‘Warm Brown’ Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette to create this look, super versatile Palette, MUST HAVE IN EVERY MAKEUP BAG! I finished the look with Dr.Lipp Original Nipple Balm for their lips, eyebrows & any area I wanted sheen/radiance.
Any tips for anyone at home wanting to recreate a similar look?
Make sure your skin is hydrated by using Sisley Paris Official Black Rose Mask.
- Hydration IS THE KEY to achieve a flawless skin/look!
- Eyebrow & Eyeshadow Palette as mentioned above
- Dr.Lipp nipple balm
I have only used the famous Original Nipple Balm and what I love about it is super versatile, I have used it for lips, cheeks, eyelids, eyebrows… any area I like to give glow/radiance/beach look!

Who is your dream client?
What is a day in the life like for you?
First thing I have to have my Italian ground coffee sent directly from Italy by my mother-in-law then I do my HIIT session with Joe Wicks – The Body Coach, he is THE BEST! I check my emails/Instagram page to upload my latest work/fun reel videos. I LOVE flowers, so if I have a day off I love to look for white roses. If I have to see a client then I always pack my bags and off on the road… I also LOVE cooking, as a Persian man I try to experiment with new flavours/ingredients as my Mum is my rock & my personal chef… we talk about food & cooking like minimum 5 times a day.
What is the best piece of beauty advice you ever received and what is the best piece you could give?
Beauty advice ever received by THE LEGENDARY MAKEUP ARTIST MR. SHU UEMURA which I was privileged & honoured to have met on several occasions:
‘Beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin…’ Beauty advice I could give you is: BE KIND to your skin and try NOT TO SMOKE!
