Beauty looks from 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!

Why you need these neutral palettes in your life!

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!

Autumn/Winter make-up trends 2015/2016

Recently I attended the annual MAC trends event where the hottest make-up trends for Autumn/Winter 2015/2016  were being showcased. The main trend for next season is all about dressing the face again. From glamorous and statement looks to tribal and animalistic looks. Make-up is being taken to the extreme and it’s about celebrating strong, powerful and influential women. Make-up is back and it’s making an appearance in a diverse and cool way inspired by street style. The edgy and cool make-up looks are being inspired from the streets of London, New York, Paris and Milan. Its not about the actual make-up anymore it’s all about how it influences the hair, clothes and accessories and how it compliments each other.

To-Die-For: Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddes Collection

Why are the best products always a limited edition? Why can’t it just be a part of the permanent collection?! That’s what I thought when I went through this new Bronze Goddes collection by Estée Lauder. For Summer 2015, the brand has released this limited edition collection and it’s to die for! If you’re new to this collection, I would say; start off with the Bronze Goddes bronzers… You’ll thank me later 😉
