Marwa Barahiem

Middle East Arabic Trainer, Max Factor Makeup Academy

The beauty world is full of potential and the Max Factor Makeup Academy equipped me with the professional skills I needed to realize this potential. Anyone who wants to make a name for themselves as a makeup artist will find it rewarding to enroll.


With a degree in Computer Science and Management Technology, Marwa Barahiem is not your regular Professional Makeup Artist. Working at a big oil and gas company while taking up the Max Factor Makeup Academy course, Marwa had to work day and night to prove herself and make a name for herself in such a competitive domain.

And she has. After getting her first professional certification in makeup artistry by celebrity makeup artist and partner of MaxFactor Makeup Academy Samira Olfat, Marwa went on to receive more certification and even more training from the experts in Hollywood with the likes of Mario Dedivanovic and Make Up Designory. Her artistry skills elevated her name in the industry to work with many of elite photographers, fashion designers, celebrities, T.V. presenters and influential figures.

From the catwalks of top fashion designers, to photoshoots for the region and Eastern Europe’s leading magazines: Zahrat Al Khaleej, Grazia Middle East, Ahlan and Ash Magazine – Fashion Zone, to her exposure in video clips and working with a lot of Arab celebrity singers, directors and models, Marwa Barahiem has become a name everyone in the show business industry knows. Because of her expertise  and wide range of experience, some of the biggest makeup brands trusted her to carry their product. Some of these brands include Max Factor, Arcancil Paris, Wow, Wojooh and Sephora.

Naturally talented with makeup artistry, Marwa started out teaching herself and learning on her own but also believes that talent should be enriched through training and learning. Because of this, she has contributed to the educational sector of the beauty industry. Marwa has recorded a series of videos for Max Factor Arabia’s staff internal trainings as well as for Wojooh’s website and Youtube channel.
