He's worked with the world's top models, designers and magazines. But who does the makeup king scroll through on Instagram?
Ahmed Ismail, aka Kiki, has been slaying the makeup scene in Cairo for the past few months. Hot off the heels of a stint in New York, where he worked with the likes of, ahem, Care Delevigne and Stella McCartney, the makeup magician has been making waves in our city, working with everyone from model maven Tara Emad to bridal couture queen Yasmine Yeya, and documenting his cosmetic travels on his Instagram @kikiismailmakeup all the while. But when he’s not busy posting images of his transformed subjects, what accounts does he religiously check out on Instagram?
