Lets just say that all the A-listers want his magic touch. Recently, we sat down with Omayr Waqar, the lux-style nominated make-up and hair stylist. He dished out on his passion and style essentials. Read the interview after the picture break

1.What made you get into makeup and styling?

I always had passion for fashion. Had to choose between makeup or designing so I chose makeup because there’s a designer under every rock these days.

2.Is there a certain type of aesthetic you follow?

Yes, I like less foundation. But good amount of highlight and contour.

3.Why do major celebrities want to work with you?

Well apart from good work one does need to have a good personality and that’s what they like about me. Also they love clean brushes and good products and they find that in my kit.

4.What’s your personal style statement?

Well I don’t go over board while styling myself. I like clean looks. Less is good. I like colours but I don’t go crazy on styling.


5.An accessory you cannot leave your home without?

Sunglasses. Unless it’s night, then nothing. Not an accessory person.

6.What does style mean to you?

Style to me means anything that looks nice on you. People, they so hard to style themselves and copy others but look bad. Style has to be something you are comfortable in and that you do for your satisfaction not for others to comment on.
