Who is Love Island’s Kazimir? The celebrity make-up artist trying to steal Josh from Georgia

She’s worked with Stormzy and Chris and Kem


With the Islanders split between the villa and Casa Amor AND twelve new contestants sent in to turn heads, carnage seems to be just around the corner and relationships primed to be wrecked.

In the now immortal words of Wes, "it's Love Island not Loyalty Island", it seems that Josh is taking those words on board, as he moves closer to new girl Kazimir despite already being couple up with fan favourite Georgia.

It looks like Kazimir could become a mainstay in the villa, so I guess we better get to know her. Here's everything we know about Kazimir Crossley.

Kazimir is 23 and from London

Kazimir is half Thai, half English

She travelled to Thailand earlier this year as well as other countries in the region.

She has 40k followers on Instagram, where she shows off her travels around the world

She's definitely been to more places than you, with Insta pics from Bali, Thailand, Hong Kong and Ibiza to name a few.

My girl just touched down in BALI #shutdown #bestie #missedyou

Kazimir works as a make-up artist

Kazimir is a professional make-up artist, teaching classes, providing in-store masterclasses at department stores on Oxford Street and also doing the make-up for a variety of celebrity clients, including…

Stormzy

She has worked on at least three Stormzy music videos, including 'Cigarettes and Kush', 'Cold' and 'Big For Your Boots'.

Maya Jama

Kazimir did Maya Jama's make-up for her appearance at the Glamour awards. The TV presenter is also the girlfriend of Stormzy.

Chris and Kem

Kazimir did the make-up for Chris and Kem's 'Little Bit Leave It' music video, arguably the couple that should have won Love Island 2017.

BBC and Greg James

Kazimir's work made it to TV, doing the make-up for BBC One's 'Sounds Like Friday Night' that featured Greg James and Amplify Dot.

You can buy her old clothes and make-up on Depop

Kazimir has 561 followers on Depop and currently has 35 items on sale, although I imagine it's unlikely she'll be able to fulfil purchases while she's on the show.

She also owns her own false lashes company

Kazimir owns a false lashes company called "Kinky Lashes" that produces a range of mink lashes.

She knows the grime artist Dave

After the twelve new Islanders were announced, grime artist 'Dave' tweeted saying he didn't realise Love Island cast real people for the show.

Despite not revealing who he was referring to in his tweet, many people in his replies said it was Kazimir, who Dave also follows on Instagram.

We think she used to work for Christian Louboutin

Okay, we're not entirely sure, but an Instagram post showing Kazimir celebrating passing her driving test (after three years of trying!) shows a congratulations card signed by "Team Louboutin'. Could this mean she used to work for the fashion brand before becoming a freelance make-up artist? We think so.

Omg how cute is my team 😩❤️ thank you guys xx #onlytookme3years #whiptime 🚗💨💨

Kazimir enjoys Thai boxing

A video posted on Instagram shows Kazimir practicing Thai boxing, a hobby she has in common with Wes.

She's volunteered at an orphanage in Vietnam

During her travels earlier this year, Kazimir volunteered at an orphanage near Nha Trang in Vietnam based in the grounds of a temple where all the kids there were left on doorsteps or by the bottom of statues.
