Alhamdulillah I found exactly what I was looking for in Samina Malik. She’s the best mentor, life coach I could ever ask for. She genuinely cares, gives me her undivided attention, and offers on point specific advice in all areas of my life. She’s truly an answer to my duas and one of the biggest blessings I have.
Samina is the quintessential makeup and styling fairy godmother. She has a friendly demeanour that puts even the most awkward makeup novice at ease.
Wish I'd done something like this at age 20 so I didn't have to go through all these years of blundering through eye makeup and that mysterious 'smokey-eye'!

My friend sought a make-up lesson from Sam, spending 4-hours with her and walked away with a look that prompted her friends to say “wow, you have never looked better."
Her ability to understand a situation quickly is amazing and she can spontaneously feel where there is disharmony or what to do to mend a relationship or feel more empowered. I am so lucky to have met her and would recommend her to anyone in need of advice in difficult life situations or at a life turning point.
I value all my customers as each have a unique need and want. I enjoy the diversity of every single face I have worked on, and all the various jobs I have done over the years working with real women - mothers, photographers, directors, celebrities, models.. Here a just a few for you to read ...
Samina is a very dear person to me. She helped me with my problems by listening and giving me wonderful helpful advice when I was at my lowest. It has been so valuable to have her in my life and to be able to contact her when I needed someone to listen.

To say that Samina is a Girl’s Best friend, Fairy Godmother and Makeup Stylist Extraordinaire is an understatement, doesn’t quite capture the gift that is Samina. She’s so much more… she is part beauty magician, part hypnotist, part therapist and an all-around transformer. Sam was recommended to me by a friend who “doesn’t wear make-up.” My friend sought a make-up lesson from Samina and ended up spending 4-hours with Samina and walked away with a look that prompted her friends to say “wow, you have never looked better: happier or healthier; what did you do; facial, drinking more water, laser treatment? You look vibrant, polished.” (no one said, “wow, you are wearing a lot of make-up” because you couldn’t tell she had any on). Like my friend, I had no idea how to put on make-up. But unlike my friend, I wore make-up Monday through Friday (for work), one could say that I liked makeup, but I know now that I had no idea what I was doing, a difficulty compounded by Singapore’s humidity. So, I thought, let’s see what Samina can do for me… I walked away transformed. I realize now that I knew nothing; she taught me so much. What’s so great about Samina is that she doesn’t represent one brand, but she knows them all, she knows the latest advances, which brands have the best products, the best brushes, the best tips and tricks, contouring, etc. What I liked most about Samina is how much she cares about her clients; this is a labour of love for her, she seeks to understand her clients’ objectives, their lifestyle, and teaches them how to do their make-up (and take their overall style up a notch). And, she works around her client’s challenges (time-strapped professional women who have no time in the morning; transitioning make-up from day to evening; keeping makeup looking fresh during a frenetic high-stress 16-hour-day without needing powder or touch-ups, etc. or a drawer full of make-up and not knowing how to use it!). Anyone and everyone who has worked with Samina remains friends with Samina “for life.” She is an amazing source of positivity and encouragement; she radiates beauty and love. My session with Samina was so successful that I had my entire team meet with Samina for a lesson and transformation. Samina is amazing and if you haven’t met with her already, you have no idea what you are missing. Sara Paz Global Director of Marketing CÉ LA VI www.celavi.com Makup Coaching Client
I have been looking for and making dua for a female Muslim role model for a long time. I wanted someone who I could look up to in so many ways, namely in day to day life with my children, husband, career and even starting up a small business - while upholding Islamic principles. Even though I had received good counsel over the years from various types of people, there was no Muslim woman role model who I felt was FULLY relatable and who genuinely understood what it’s like to be a practicing Muslim woman in the West, actively contributing to society. I wear hijab, raise a family, try to keep up career and business ambitions all at the same time, and so I deeply aspired for someone that could keep me progressing in these areas of life and be able to really get me to the next level - not let me get stagnant, not let me get in my own way, and not let me just watch my life go by! Trust me I know that’s a tall order! Alhamdulillah I found exactly what I was looking for in Samina Malik. She’s the best mentor, life coach I could ever ask for. She genuinely cares, gives me her undivided attention, and offers on point specific advice in all areas of my life. She’s truly an answer to my duas and one of the biggest blessings I have. I’ve been able to improve in my small business, career, fashion, general daily upkeep of my house, my deen, and even my personal self care. The incremental improvements in everything have allowed me to really upgrade my standard of life and live life to the fullest. Whenever I have a hurdle that makes me feel stuck or makes me feel like I may not bring my “best self”, I turn to Samina for advice and she has always come through with the direction I needed, that adheres to Islamic principles as well. How absolutely wonderful - Alhamdulillah! Saadia F Life Coach Client
