Abibat Durosimi

Abibat may not know what she’s in for, but Taste of Style is thrilled that she has agreed to be on our panel of celebrity judges this year!

Abibat is a Natural Hair & Makeup Expert with over 15 years of experience. She has been a key makeup artist for performers such as Prince, Misty Copeland, Nicole Scherzinger, Esperanza Spalding, and Liv Warfield.  Her artistry has been featured in TIME Magazine, Essence, Oregon Bride, Portland Bride & Groom Magazine, Disorder Magazine (UK), and more.  In her spare time she has encouraged adversity in diverse beauty in the NW as a Beauty Influencer on Afternoon Live at KATU. 

Apart from making her clients and followers look and feel good, she’s a single mother of two incredible children. In 2017, she built an amazing venture called BLOOM BEAUTY COLLECTIVE, where an incredible group of creative entrepreneurs in the Pacific Northwest mentors and encourages living a holistic lifestyle that focuses on beauty, fitness, nutrition, and mental wellness.  In 2018, BLOOM Runway was created: a production and management boutique agency that curates artistic events while connecting BBC members with on-going assignments to encourage true entrepreneurship in the arts.
