Zakiyah (Shani) Murchison here guys!

I am an international professional makeup artist and groomer, with a passion that extends beyond my makeup brushes. Over the past 8 years, I’ve dedicated myself to honing my craft, collaborating with incredible clients and brands along the way. 

My journey is steered by a deep-rooted commitment to proficiency in working across diverse skin types and tones, unwavering professionalism, representation and inclusivity. I’m dedicated to instilling confidence and a sense of security in my clients, providing services and techniques uniquely tailored to each individual.

What truly inspires me about makeup artistry is its fluidity, transformative nature, and inherent excitement. I love that my work allows me to be fully immersed in the ever-evolving culture of makeup. It’s not just art; it’s a representation of my skills as an artist and, equally importantly, a reflection of my clients.

Throughout my journey, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with exceptional brands and talent across various realms, including Red carpet events, Editorials, Commercials, Campaigns, Music Video shoots, and Celebrity Press Junkets. Notable figures I’ve worked with include John Boyega, Ozwald Boateng, WizKid, Dina Asher Smith, Perri Shakes Edward, Angie Martinez, Paapa Essiedu, Precious Mustapha, Melissa Holdbrook-Akposoe, and Zaria Simone. My work has been featured in renowned publications such as British Vogue, British GQ, The Gentleman’s Journal, The Sunday Times Style Magazine, and more.

Among the brands I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with are Flannels, Aveeno, Ren Skincare, Dyson, eBay, Spotify and Netflix contributing to a diverse portfolio of experiences and achievements.

Self admittedly, I am a perfectionist who prioritises efficiency, while placing utmost importance on attention to detail, comfort, and understanding throughout my process. Whether working independently or collaboratively, I embrace a holistic approach to ensure the overall success of my clients.

I'n lucky enough to do what I love and in doing so, I get to meet the most wonderful people. I look forward to connecting and working with many more!
