Beauty starts from the inside. Beauty is an inside job. For me it is the unshakable belief that you are fearfully, wonderfully made that you are all together beautiful flaws and all. Makeup is a tool used to polish that which we already have.
Nzilani Kimani is first and foremost a child of God. A vessel to be used for His glory. I am passionate about women, working with women, helping them feel beautiful, helping them to realize the beauty that God has given them, to encourage women to realize that beauty is skin deep. I believe that society has misled women into believing lies about what beauty really is. That beauty is first on the outside then the inside, that makeup is used to deceive, that loving makeup makes you shallow. All these are false. Makeup is art, it’s the process of seeing the transformation a little color, a little foundation, a little care and love can make in the appearance and self-confidence of a woman.
I developed my passion for beauty and makeup at a young age but it wasn’t until years later that my best friend and husband urged me to pursue makeup artistry as a career. I was working at a good reputable organization but I was miserable and unfulfilled. I quit my employment after a lot of soul searching and prayer to fully pursue my love for beauty and cosmetics. In 2014, Nzilani Kimani Makeup Artistry was born. It has been Gods favor all through and I wouldn’t trade my job for anything in the world. I am in awe of how far I have come in such a short time, the experiences, the networks, the ups and downs since I embarked on this journey cannot be compared to anything. I trust that God is taking me even further by His grace.
