A bright student, very enthusiastic and down to earth, Amiirah Sheriff decided she would work in this industry at the age of 18 years old and thus started a Diploma in Beauty therapy. A 3 year course during which she started working on a part time basis to fuel her aptitudes. Amiirah always believed that practice makes perfect, so she seized an opportunity and aimed higher by taking a make-up course and sacrificed another 3 years of her life in enhancing her talents by working in close collaboration with a Pakistani makeup expert who helped her become a real master in make-up. She made her debut as an amateur and ended up as a professional.

Amiirah Sheriff loves fashion and photoshoots. She wanted to mix fashion and glamorous make-up. So she organized her first Extravaganza show in December 2013, followed by Glamour show in May 2014, another Barbie show in December 2014 and a spectacular Bridal show in May 2015.

Despite being very humble, Amiirah Sheriff is also very popular over the net. She has been listed as the official make up artist in Miss Global International and is currently working on a new project, the cover magazine for a Wedding Mag.
