I love taking photos, and I love sharing them with you – so here’s my photo story on what goes down backstage at Fashion Forward.
Even though fashion & beauty go hand in hand, I’m not a big ”fan” of attending fashion shows. I’d rather see what’s going on backstage and how the beauty looks are being brought to life. I do have to acknowledge the fact that we’ve got some amazing local fashion talent in the UAE. In this post you’ll find all the beauty looks from this season’s Fashion Forward DXB!
As a make-up junkie, its hard to choose a favourite product. If there’s something in the make-up market that I love, its palettes! As a make-up artist and for someone that travels a lot, palettes are my holy grail in life! You have everything you need in one palette, its light weighted and its compact. I’ve lined up some of my FAVOURITE neutral palettes at the moment because, a woman can never have too many neutral palettes!
I’ve recently attended a multi branded Sephora event where we got introduced to the latest launches available at Sephora. They fly in the spokesperson of each brand from all over the world and they talk us through the new products and launches. After every Sephora event, they provide everyone with a massive goodie bag filled with all the latest products. I’ve lined up some of the new launches that are available at Sephora across the Middle East including brands like: Anastasia Beverly Hills, Starskin, Nails Inc. and many more!
I’ve visited the the Ritz Carlton hotel in Abu Dhabi many, many times! However, for some reason I never got the chance to visit the ESPA. I tried the Advanced Radiance Facial (of 90 min) which is a recent new treatment introduced in the spa. Obviously, the products that were used during the facial are personalised and selected according to your skin type. Before my facial, I got the chance to meet Susan Harmworth who is the founder and CEO of ESPA. I was shocked to find out that she’s already in her 70’s because of her great energy and amazing (almost wrinkles) skin, she looks in her 50’s. This was the main reason for me to be so excited to try out their facial and skincare products. I mean, she’s the living proof that her products work amazing!
I was recently invited by the tourism of Thailand agency to visit Bangkok for the first time! I’ve been to Thailand before but never to Bangkok so I wanted to make the most out of my trip by visiting as many places as possible within 4 days. I had an absolute amazing time and I’m already planning my next trip to Thailand because once you’ve been to Thailand, you become addicted! There’s so much to do in Bangkok from shopping, sight seeing to eating amazing local Thai food! I can talk for hours and hours about Bangkok and Thailand in general so I’ve lined up some of the must things to do and some of my favourite spots in Bangkok.
It’s that time of the year again where beauty brands are launching their Fall collection. I actually received these Dior products only today and it’s one of the first Fall collections that I’ve received so far. I haven’t gotten into the products yet but I can’t wait to start playing with them!
MAKE UP FOR EVER has recently launched an entire new range of lip glosses, the ”Artist Plexi Glass”. As we’ve noticed in the past year, the brand has really stepped up the quality and variety of their products. I’m really excited about this new collection of glosses, the quality is great and the shades are to-die-for!
It’s always exciting when Tom Ford launches a new collection. The new Soleil Collection features some interesting and gorgeous products including the metallic powder & cream eyeshadow in one. The collection has been available since August 15 at Tom Ford counters across the Middle East.
The long awaited Louboutin lipsticks have finally launched globally and recently in Dubai as well, starting from September 13th. This makes it Christian Louboutin’s 2nd beauty launch after the launch of the nail lacquers last year. Obviously the first shade comes in the iconic ”Rouge Louboutin” which is also the exact same shade as the red Louboutin soles.
