Mehwish Hayat wrote an Instagram birthday tribute to her makeup artist and long-time companion. The Jawani Phir Nahi Aani actor thanked Waqar Hussain for being there with her throughout her decade-long career.
“Be it Actor-in-Law, Load Wedding or countless TVCs you are the secret to making me look beautiful on screen. Your smile always brightens up the dullest day. You are such a positive human being who has injected so much positivity and confidence in me.”
“Waqar Hussain is my rock”
Hayat called Hussain her “rock.” This is because Hayat credits Hussain as her most trusted confidante in the early days of her career. “On sets I remember that I would be quiet and just observe,” the Load Wedding star went on to say, adding that Hussain was the only one she could “open up to” on set.
Waqar commented on the post and thanked his “superstar”, saying that he always enjoyed working for her and had a special bond with her.
Hussain is also a makeup artist for other celebrities like Minal Khan, Iffat Omar, Fahad Hussain and Iqra Aziz.
His Instagram often features selfies with Lollywood stars. It even features iconic looks he has done including the Lux Style Award look for Iqra Aziz. It also features Mehwish Hayat’s various beauty looks throughout her career.
