Happy Birthday @waqar_makeup . 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. Not many will know that you were my first make up artist ten years ago and we have shared this wondrous journey together. On sets I remember that I would be quiet and just observe – you were the only person that I would open up to. From those days you have been my rock and I cannot thank you enough for being there whenever I have needed you. You have literally seen me grow up into the person I am today. Above all else thank you for just being you! ♥️ Have a great day and a great year – shine today tomm and forever ! Love you loads ! ?? #WaqarHussain #HappyBirthday #sendingloveandlight ?

“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.

Repost from @fahadcitrus using @RepostRegramApp – Sometimes life gets so busy that we forget about the most important events and people in our lives. But these people are always there whenever we need them the most. One such person in my life is @waqar_makeup who is more than a friend to me. He stood by me when I went through the toughest phase in my professional life last year. He was that one friend who helped me find God and taught me how life can change for the better only if we have strong faith in Allah. Today on your birthday, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being my pillar of strength, lending an ear when noone else listened, giving me a shoulder to cry on when everyone else disappeared and most of all thank you for being such an honest, genuine and caring friend who helped me heal and become a better person. I love you brother…. Happy Birthday meri jaan Waqar ❤️❤️❤️
