" Be your own FASHIONISTA,
It all began in his early twenties when he completed a degree in Makeup & Tattoo at the YWCA College and began working behind-the-scenes in TV, theater shows and music videos. What better way to explore one’s talents than behind stage curtains? His signature was obvious in his makeup looks. Stars loved him and the audience applauded his efforts in admiration, especially when it came to his work in music videos, which received ample exposure. Fady reached new heights when he began introducing his advertising campaigns and photoshoots to the public. Nothing short of innovative, creative, modern and downright beautiful, the shots resulted from the collective efforts of the best production team out there. He surpassed his time.
Besides his involvement in show business, Fady spent eight years of his career heading the Makeup Department in one of the most prestigious hair salons in the region. There, he worked with celebrities, beauty icons, VIP clients as well as everyday sensible women. Once he began his work, every subject was transformed into a blank canvas, a muse whom he would magically transform.
Fady’s dream of opening his eponymous salon finally came to life in 2008 when Fady Kataya Beauty Lounge was born. This step established him as both a creative sensation as well as a leader in the makeup industry. Generations of striving makeup artists would look up to him and learn from his techniques. Over the years, his salon has hosted rising talents whom he believed in, mentored and later encouraged to find their own paths and create beauty in their own ways.
His extensive experience in the world of beauty has made him a go-to influencer, sought after by international makeup brands and trusted by clients and fans alike. Among the stars Fady has worked with over the past years are Nancy Ajram, Yara, Nawal al Kuwaitiya, Ahlam, Amal Maher, Nicole Saba, Madeleine Matar, Carole Samaha, Aline Khalaf, and many more.
