Collection: Headblush Glitta

HEY BABE!

I’m Sofaya Hussein (she/her), a self-taught makeup artist, and Headblush/Headblush Glitta are my big, bright, sparkly babies.

My mission is to make makeup creative and fun so that YOU look and feel fantastic. For me, makeup has nothing to do with expectation and everything to do with expression.

I live in Brighton with my partner Tom and flatmate Jules super close to the beach. You can mostly find me watching YouTube in bed, Instagramming in my happy place (the bath) and stopping random cats on the street for a cuddle.

I love: stupidly big earrings, any garment that has flip-sequin fabric, mashed potatoes, Beyonce, copy editing, cheese (it’s so good), being a shoulder to cry on, weird coloured lipstick and analysing just about every film and TV show from an intersectional feminist standpoint.

I hate: the patriarchy, liquorice, flip flops, cheese (it makes me fart), people who leave litter on the beach, cleaning, going out out (pubs and clubs just ain’t my thang), mocktails that cost as much as a cocktail and people who touch my hair without permission.

From there, I learnt how to translate ideas in my head onto peoples bodies and got a feel for applying makeup on faces other than my own.

Whilst writing my stupidly long dissertation for my Gender Studies MA in 2015 (30,000 words is no joke), creative makeup was my outlet. Soon I began the Headblush Instagram account and as my technique developed so did my love for breaking the rules of neutral makeup. Nothing about putting neutral-coloured lotions and potions on my face seemed at all natural, I thought, so why not pick the brightest colours in the palette?

In 2016 I started taking on clients, mostly friends, local music artists and those who found me through Instagram. Over the years I have been lucky to build a wonderful online following, work with many of my clients and collaborate with other creatives. I have a few Headblush Makeup projects in mind for the future, so keep your eyes peeled…
