About The Artist

Leiya Phinao Ningshen - National Artist, MAC Cosmetics India

Has been with MAC cosmetic for 14+ years. Her style of makeup is feminine and natural, drawing inspiration from modern aesthetics seen in the world’s greatest fashion shows, art, cinema, and makeup trends from different countries. Leiya got drawn to MAC’s commitment to Inclusivity and diversity; She’s been pivotal in leading Artistry at Mac.


Leiya believes that makeup should enhance your natural beauty. She loves the luminescent, natural skin juxtaposed against a strong eye or lip, allowing the wearer’s personality to shine.


Her work continues to grow through her minimal and natural radiant makeup looks. She has worked on shows like Dubai fashion week, Paris fashion week and Milan fashion week.  For her clients, she tries to enhance their natural features and bring out their true identities.


She swears by MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix + spray which is used to prime the skin before applying makeup for instant hydration. Studio fix powder plus foundation for a photo ready finish and everyday perfect nude lipstick in Velvet teddy.
