About Muthoni Njoba

Muthoni Njoba has been passionate about being a Make-up Artist since she was 9 years old. In 2006 after completing her undergraduate Degree in Communications, Media, Culture & Psychology at Oxford Brookes University, England, she moved back home eager to pursue a career in Make-up. Given the chance she was able to work as an intern to the late Hassan Maburuk (the leading Make-up Artist in Kenya at the time) and from that experience, once she built an established name for herself, she has dedicated herself to passing on the knowledge and give other upcoming Make-up Artists the same opportunity Hassan gave her.

Now she is one of the foremost make-up artists in Kenya catering to the needs of Magazines, Advertisements/Commercials, Catwalks, Bridal parties, Board Members and Celebrity/Personality appearances. Muthoni Njoba has had the opportunity to work in Tanzania, Ethopia, South Sudan, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Dubai, England and New York all while being Kenyan based.

After working 3 years as a full time self-taught freelance Make-up Artist, she finally fulfilled her lifelong dream in 2013 which was to attend Make-up school at the prestigious Academy of Freelance Make-up in Soho, London (www.aofmakeup.com). She attained a Certificate in Freelance Make-up. In February 2015 Muthoni Njoba became the first Kenyan Make-up Artist to be assigned as the Lead Brand Ambassador of an International cosmetic brand. This makes her the 3rd Make-up Artist, in all of Africa, recruited by L'Oreal to be the Brand Ambassador and Official Make-up Artist of Maybelline New York Kenya.

May 2015 she returned to AOFM yet again this time to complete an Advanced Certificate in Freelance Make-up. In February 2016 Muthoni Njoba was invited by Maybelline New York to work backstage at New York Fashion. She worked on models for fashion designers such as Jason Wu, DKNY, Jonathan Simkhai, Opening Ceremony, Baja East, Public School, Marrisa Webb, Brock, Beauffile and Ji Oh. This was a great achievement for her being the very first Kenyan make-up artist to be flown from Nairobi to New York to work at Fashion Week.
