Makeup artist Khuraira has worked for Trish McEvoy, Laura Mercier and the show “The Bachelorette.” (

MANHATTAN — Nigerian-born makeup artist Khuraira Musa knows she chose the right career when she’s stopped on the street and asked about her technique.

“Black and Latino women come up to me and see my skin all evened out and ask, ‘How did you get that?'”

Khuraira — who goes by just her first name — tells the women her skin looks flawless thanks to her eponymous makeup line, which opened its first Manhattan outpost at The Spa at Trump SoHo last week.

The 43-year-old Pomona, NY resident’s mission is to match makeup and skin tone, no matter what the customer’s ethnicity, she said.

“With Khuraira makeup line, I want every woman who walks to our counter to get the right shade for her, whether she’s white, black, Latina or Asian,” she said. “I have colors from Claudia Schiffer to [Sudanese model] Alek Wek.”

In particular, Khuraira said that even high-end makeup brands can look dull and chalky on women with dark skin if they wear the wrong colors.
