Hussainy in one sentence – Mezhgan is a true lady and an inspirational individual.
Every day I thank my parents for leaving Afghanistan because God knows what would have happened to us if we stayed there.
The thing I like best about my job is all the people I meet and the way they feel after I do their makeup.
I try to do everything I can to help children and women in Afghanistan.
Anything can be done right with moderation and within the limits.
Mezhgan was born into an upper-class in Afghanistan. Her family owned a successful business and enjoyed very comfortable life (they had a cook, a nanny, a driver and housekeepers). All that ended in 1979 when Soviets envied Afghanistan which resulted in the rise of Taliban…

Always remember that true beauty comes from within.
