Khuraira Make-up Boutique Celebrating 10 year Anniversary!!!

Khuraira cosmetics would like to thank its clients throughout the tri-state area and around the world for supporting this company. It was started by a woman who was given the priceless opportunity to come to the United States from Africa for an education.  The Khuraira flagship store in Tenafly, NJ opened for make-up services in December 2005.   Khuraira Cosmetics make-up line was launched in 2008. Today, 10 years later, Khuraira’s cosmetics and skin care products are sold globally. The products are sold at the flagship store in Tenafly, in upscale boutiques, hotels and spas nationally and internationally, on the website, and sold out on a TV shopping network.  Some of Khuraira’s products have been featured in national beauty magazines and endorsed by Oprah Winfrey.  Khuraira Musa is a recipient of many awards such as: Count Me In Business Story, UN Humanitarian Award, and My Business Story featured by American Express and Google.  A portion of the product and service sales are used to benefit a school that Khuraira Musa founded, Zainab Memorial School in her hometown, in Jos, Nigeria to help educate underprivileged children.


In 2012, Khuraira Musa created and launched a K-Pro Airbrush System. This product is used to train professional make-up artists in the United States at the Parisian Beauty Academy, a Paul Mitchell Partner School in Hackensack, NJ and in Nigeria. Providing women with a skill to further their ability to earn money for themselves has been a successful initiative.  In 2016, the K-Pro Airbrush training program will be available at Khuraira’s flagship store in Tenafly.


To celebrate and thank the community for supporting us to grow our business, please join us on Sunday, December 20th, 2015 at our flagship boutique between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. for refreshments and a special gift.  29 ½ Washington Street, Tenafly, NJ.  201-227-1135.

4 Fresh Looks for Spring

Spring and fall are the two times during the year to clean out your makeup bag. With spring right around the corner, you might as well get started.

Look over your entire collection of what worked for the winter season and start with changing your foundation for the new spring season. You could page through your favorite magazines for new trends in lip colors, eyes shadows and cheek definition. But I’ll save you the effort.

Here are 4 fresh looks for spring that you can play and have fun with while at the office and into the night.

Spring Look #1: Barely There 

This is a very neutral, barely-there look. It’s a beautiful clean canvas for the face that embraces soft eye colors with a hint of definition. This should be the foundation of your day look.


Spring Look #2: Fantasy Girl

This sexy, smokey eye look is still en vogue and has lashes that are ready for the town. It’s easy to go from basic day girl to fantasy girl in less than 5 minutes.


Spring Look #3: Bombshell Girl

Don’t be afraid of color. Love color and it will love you back. In fact, you’ll be rewarded with gawking looks from across the room while you don greenish, gold eye shadows and soft pink lipsticks.


Spring Look #4: Ebony Princess

A clean, flawless face accented with soft bronze colors for the eyes and pinkish orange lip colors will capture the attention of all.


What’s your favorite look?

Khuraira Honored IWD14

Khuraira Honored at International Women’s Day 2014

I’m very excited and humbled to share with you some great news. Recently, I was honored at the International Women’s Day on March 7 in New York City by the Society of Foreign Consuls. It was a day filled with celebrating women leaders in our communities as well as recognizing our charitable efforts.

Cause initiatives supported by Khuraira Cosmetics include breast cancer survivors, sickle cell anemia, and education programs for African youth.

Cause: Breast Cancer Survivors

Khuraira Supports Breast Cancer AwarenessKhuraira supports three main causes: breast cancer, sickle cell anemia and education for African youth. Khuraira is a founder of “Spoil Me Pink,” a charitable organization that offers an exclusive and free program at Khuraira’s boutique store once a month for breast cancer survivors or those currently battling breast cancer a day to escape the trials of treatment and its effects by having a chance to enhance their new selves in a fun and positive way.

Cause: Sickle Cell Anemia

Khuraira also works to raise awareness of the horrible disease sickle cell anemia, which has been part her life since she was a child. Growing up in Nigeria, Khuraira witnessed her cousins and friends constantly battle this affliction. Khuraira, who now lives in America, suffered a similar fate when her 8-year son was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. After nearly loosing him from complications and recognizing the global issue of the disease, she knew it was time, her duty if you will, to do something. Efforts to date include fund raising, being active in media and social media on the topic, as well as plans to start a foundation in her son’s honor.

Khuraira Supports Sickle Cell Anemia

As featured in The New York Times in 2011, pictured are Riley Dews, 4, left, and Tracy Dews, 8, who are brothers and who were both born with sickle cell anemia. Managing their disease has become a routine part of their family life.

Cause: African Youth Education

Khuraira’s passion for educating children in her Nigerian village is in honor to her aunt, who truly believes in the power of education. Khuraira’s aunt used her very last dollar to make sure that Khuraira was educated in fulfillment of her promise to a nun, who told her that the best thing she could do for her Orphan niece was to make sure she was educated.

After Khuraira’s aunt passed away in 2012, Khuraira promised to honor her by opening a school in her name: Hajia Zainab Umar Memorial School. Currently, there are 40 pupils of two classes of kindergarten and first grade, and Khuraira is planning to add more every year.

Khuraira Supports African Youth EducationThis award is not just for me, but for all you who shop with Khuraira Cosmetics. It’s because of you – your patronage – that my business is able to support these causes, which are so near and dear to my heart.

I want to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping change people’s lives.

New York, March 6, 2014 – Khuraira Cosmetics is pleased to announce that its founder, Khuraira Musa, has been selected to be honored by the Society for foreign Consuls at the Global Centenary of International Women’s Day (IWD).

This year’s IWD celebration will be held on Friday, March 7th, 2014 at Consulate General of Republic of Poland, 233 Madison Avenue (Corner of 37th St.), New York, NY 10016.

IWD is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. The Society strives to promote good relations between the NYC Consular Corps and our hosts, New York City and the United States of America. This explains why invitations have been extended to celebrate along with fellow women Consuls Generals and nationals who have made difference here in New York at a special reception kindly hosted by the Consul General of the Republic of Poland Hon. Ewa Junczyk-Ziomecka.

A pioneer and celebrity makeup artist of over 20 years, Khuraira Musa is founder and creator of Khuraira Cosmetics, a luxury, full-color cosmetics line for women of all ages, color and skin condition. Established in 2008, Khuraira Cosmetics operates as a boutique, flagship store in Tenafly, NJ & online at; product is also available at select upscale boutiques nationwide and globally.

“I am thrilled to be receiving this award because my life-long dream in creating Khuraira Cosmetics is all about bettering the life of women and young girls,” said Khuraira, who is married and mother of five children. “Makeup application is certainly an integral part of it, but just as important is creating a revenue stream for women to live full professional lives, especially young girls who can develop a trade skill to support themselves.

“I’d like to thank the Society for recognizing the difference my company is making to educate and empower women, not just here in NYC and America, but also back in my native country Nigeria.”

Added Khuraira, “Receiving this award is a further validation that my profit and purpose maximization endeavors are aligned and on the right path. With a mission to educate and empower women and young girls, my message to them is that it doesn’t matter where you come from if you have a vision and work hard, all things are possible.”

The aim of IWD is to honor the works of suffragettes, celebrate women’s success and remind of inequalities still to be redressed.

The society arranges useful forums and briefings with local, state and federal authorities and regular charitable and social events for members and guests.

Khuraira blends skincare treatment into her makeup line, which when combined with her high-quality makeup tools, delivers that smooth, sought-after look with long-lasting effects. The range’s hero item is its Khuraira Dark Circle Primer with advanced orange correcting technology, which instantly neutralizes blue undertones of dark circles. A leading pioneer of airbrush makeup and a true master at the art of its application, Khuraira developed a K-PRO airbrush makeup system that beauty insiders say is one of the best on the market today.

Khuraira Cosmetics Seductive Valentines Day Look

Be Flawless for Your Loved Ones This Valentine’s Day

Ladies! V-day is about 360 degree love. So ladies… hear this on Valentine’s Day: Let’s be flawless for the ones we love, for the love that we have for ourselves, and in return basque in love’s sunlit warmth and appreciation!

Valentine’s Day represents a special kind of love. It’s a day to take a moment and appreciate your loved ones with little treats. Here are some tips!

  • Red roses for your spouse. (Yes, send your man some buds!)
  • Celebrate the love of your parents for bringing you into this world and doing their best to raise you. Call them or send them a sweet and sincere note!
  • Give a shout out to your friends with a text or phone call; treat them to their favorite coffee or sweet. (Or pick up the tab at lunch!)
  • For your children, take some extra time and appreciate all the things they do right and give them a pass for life’s  little slip ups.

Most importantly, Valentine’s Day is about creating brand new and sweet memories while gathering together and recollecting your powerful and positive experiences of the past. Playing “Remember When” is a wonderful small talk game as well as trying new things, which create fresh new experiences.

Lastly, because I live in the world of makeup, I must confess that Valentine’s Day is about enhancing features you have and love with the right makeup. You can even create a seductive look for your spouse after your children have gone to bed. I totally recommend a traditional red or pink look for that sassy yet wholesome natural look.

And no matter what, take some time to love yourself. You’re worth it!

Khuraira Cosmetics Dark Circle Primer Remove Botox Bruise Around Lips

Botox Bruise Blues: How to Remove Bruising Around Lips

You’ve got a huge event coming up, like a wedding to attend or the social event of the season. You want to look your best and feel more youthful, so you’ve decided on Botox treatment in order to touch up and plump up. And now you’re crossing your fingers there will be minimal to no Botox bruise issues.

If your Botox treatment is a complete success, that’s fantastic. But what happens when Botox beauty goes wrong and you’ve now got the Botox Bruise Blues?

Regular concealer coverage is certainly an option, but it really won’t do the trick, especially as a long-lasting solution. Enter our dark circle primer complex with orange correcting technology, which was featured in “InStyle Wedding,” August 2008 and in Essence Magazine 2012 as a top pick.

Khuraira Dark Circle Complex Primer is an advanced dermatological treatment that is proven to significantly diminish the appearance of not only dark circles under eyes and discolorations, but also Botox bruise issues. What’s more, our dark circle complex primer is smooth and it moisturizes the delicate skin, allowing for any concealer to stay put to create a flawless finish.

How to Remove Botox Bruise Issues

Step 1: Using a concealer brush, apply a small amount of our Khuraira Dark Circle Complex Primer to neutralize the Botox bruise. Our orange-correcting technology diffuses the blue undertones.

Step 2: Go over newly primed area and pad it with our Khuraira Invisible Touch Up Powder, which was featured on OPRAH Season 25 and The Next Chapter: Touch Up Powder of Choice. This step locks in the primer with a colorless touch up.

Step 3: It’s time to even out the skin tone with the right concealer. Apply our Khuraira Dual Camouflage Concealer to custom blend your flawless finish. Available in light, medium and dark, our Camo Concealer is highly pigmented and is great for total, long-lasting coverage.

Step 4: Do one more application of the Invisible Powder to finish the look.

That’s it! Depending on how much bruising there is around the lips, the whole process should take about 5 minutes.

When it’s all said and done, some believe that the Botox Bruise Blues are unavoidable. We like to believe in miracles and that’s what you’ll get when you follow these easy steps!

Bye Bye Dark Circles Under Eyes, Hello Flawless

No one wants dark circles under eyes. But sometimes genetics or an active lifestyle wears you down and your face is worse for wear.

There is hope. And it starts with our Dark Circle Under Eyes Primer. Yes, it is orange. Which makes it uniquely positioned as the only product on the market today that neutralizes the blue undertone.

5 Easy Application Tips to Remove Dark Circles Under Eyes

  1. To apply, just do a few strokes with the Dark Circle Primer with a tiny concealer brush, blend it into your palm to break it down and warm it up.
  2. Then start on the inside where it is usually darkest then work it out. You can use your finger to tap over the orange to help blend it through.
  3. Find a concealer that best matches your skin tone to apply over the dark circle primer. (I always recommend putting a concealer over the primer, instead of wearing the orange dark circle primer alone.)
  4. Our Age Control Concealer is enriched with peptides, vitamin e, and aloe. The concealer is highly moisturizing. And if you have lines, the peptides in the concealer will help plump the lines.
  5. Last but not least is the Invisible Powder. This powder is truly invisible. This powder will not emphasize lines because it has no pigment. It also helps smooth out the skin. This white powder is for everyone including men. For television, weddings, or everyday anyone can use it.

So there you have it! Say bye bye to dark circles under eyes, say hello to feeling flawless!
