Originally a Miami-based celebrity stylist with Jamaican roots, KEYSHIA KA’OIR got her modeling start in late 2009 when Director Paul Coy Allen cast her for a starring role as “Lisa”, the jealous ex-wife in the Timbaland & Drake mini-movie /music video, “Say Something”. Soon after, the hustler and model known as “Keyshia Dior“, embarked on a 2010 whirlwind push which led to modeling features in countless music videos, covers on several national magazines and culminated with winning nationwide recognition as the 2010 XXL Magazine Model of the Year.
As a model, “Keyshia Dior” used every experience as a learning opportunity for both personal and professional growth. After a outstanding 2010, she succeeded in solidifying her personal brand as a model and fashion trendsetter known for her smile, hair and edgy style….. But “Keyshia Dior” had MORE in store!…. After realizing she was still “hand-making” the popular “blue lipstick” she was known for, the budding businesswoman decided to follow her entrepreneurial spirit and answer the call of her fans by commercially creating an exclusive assortment of bright colored lipsticks for herself & her loyal #DiorDoll fanbase.
So in 2011, the growing mogul known as Keyshia Dior, formally changed her name to “KEYSHIA KA’OIR“ to stand behind her brand and launch the vibrant new makeup company…. KA’OIR COSMETICS. Keyshia’s original goal was to to bring together women of all shades and all complexions with a cosmetic line that embodied her confidence and featured a stunning array of colors. The fun KA’OIR makeup colors soon become a beautiful complement to ANY confident woman who had the strength to be herself and work hard for the dreams she believed in.
KEYSHIA KA’OIR is a name that you want to keep an eye on. She is hot, multi-dimensional and focused on greatness.
