A new breed of influencers that have a positive impact on many people’s everyday lives has been produced by the growth of Instagram and other short video platforms like TikTok. This has caused a boom in the number of new beauty stars who use their work to influence their audience and trends.
Even though this area is congested, a select few have emerged from the edges and found a niche for themselves. They have not only established a reputation for themselves, but they have also created prosperous enterprises that enable people to recognise them wherever in the world.
In order to discover what she did best, an 18-year-old girl flew from Germany to Kosovo in the Balkans in 2009.
Dafin Neziri has proven her critics wrong and carved out a niche for herself thanks to her fervent determination and desire to maximise her resources.
Neziri earned her Makeup Designory (MUD) certification as a makeup artist while finishing her studies at Rochester Institute of Technology for Management, Public Policy, and Media in Kosovo.
As she continued to rise, she eventually entered the field of entrepreneurship and established her own business, Dafin GmbH, which is situated in Germany.
She is based in Germany and serves clients all around the world. Particularly in the area, her workshops and makeup applications are in high demand. Neziri received the 2022 Golden Mask for Makeup Art Award in Düsseldorf, Germany, for her contributions.
Neziri has collaborated with numerous companies, such as Huda Beauty, Sephora, Douglas, and Fenty. She has also applied cosmetics for well-known celebrities like Catherine McBroom, Amanda Cerny, and American singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha.
She has previously collaborated with Huda Kattan, an American-Iraqi cosmetics artist and beauty blogger.
Among her clients are celebrities from Europe and Asia. Neziri’s creations have appeared in numerous worldwide gatherings, advertising campaigns, and music videos.
Neziri recently cooperated on a project with Huda Beauty and actress Nadine Nassib Njeim in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, then later with Bebe Rexha and Amanda Cerny on a picture shoot in Los Angeles, California. Patrick Ta, a makeup artist, participated in her Masterclass, which was sponsored by Universal World Conventions & Exhibitions Dubai and held on March 22 at the Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai.
But what drives her behaviour?
Neziri cited her inspiration as the desire to make others happy by encouraging them to be their best selves. She also stated that her aim in life is to make others smile.
Neziri enjoys that her creative outlet gives her the opportunity to share her love of beauty with others. Makeup is her passion.
Neziri appears to have her sights set on being a significant player in the skincare industry while others are still trying to figure it all out. She sees this as a means of expressing her creativity and believes that self-care should be a priority in everyone’s life.
She claims that all of us are attractive whether or not we wear cosmetics. However, cosmetics offers us the ability to enhance and love our best qualities. I get the chance to make others smile every day, and that has been my compass, showing me that this is the proper course for my life.
In 2016, Dafin launched the Dafin Makeup Academy with this concept in mind. The Kosovo Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology and the National Qualification Authority both accredited the institute, making it the first makeup school in the nation to do so.
The institute has achieved great success thus far and is one of the most well-known brands in the area.
Neziri claimed in an interview that the platform gives her the opportunity to impart a creative and passionate style of art to other makeup artists who share her interests.
Every year, she instructs more than 500 aspiring students in cosmetics methods. She teaches everything at her academy, from methods to practise, and as a result, she welcomes pupils from all over the world.
Her academy emphasises both the theoretical and practical sides of cosmetics in addition to the theoretical. Dafin’s programme covers everything, from the proper tools to colour combinations.
Dafin’s massive reach and popularity on social media platforms are a striking example of her achievement. Her TikTok account has over 1.2 Million followers, compared to 785K for her Instagram account. Over 25.5 million individuals worldwide have loved her material overall.
She hopes to attract even more pupils to her academy, from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures. Although fame has been her constant companion, she wants to be remembered as a dedicated worker who sacrificed all for her work.
