Since the fashion industry has recently been blooming in the region, Identity has decided to select and acknowledge an individual who has influenced fashion in the Middle East every month. We find this to be a great opportunity to inspire Middle Eastern fashion individuals, from fashion designers, to models, photographers, stylists, bloggers, and everyone in between.


Dolly Yanny is an Egyptian Make-up artist you’ve definitely been hearing about lately. She has managed to become quite popular and well renowned for her creative work, getting involved in so many fashion events and photo-shoots in a very short time.

At 18 years of age, this inspiring young woman was talented enough to direct everyone’s attention to her magical touch on her clients’ faces. From bridal makeup, creative and artistic make-up to Halloween make-up, Dolly has perfected them all.

Dolly became a certified makeup artist after having completed a make-up course in Dubai and attending several other workshops, the latest of which was instructed by make-up guru, Samer Khouzami. 

On the side, Dolly also took part in a few TV ads, modeled in a couple of fashion photo-shoots for well-known brands and was a speaker at a number of events. She has participated in Dash Beauty Con, where she worked on a make-up show. She has also sponsored Cairo Couture Collection season 3.

Happy vibes, happy vibes with Tommy Hilfiger. #TommyHilfigerCairo ✨
