Petroleum Jelly has been a beauty must-have for generations. This multi-purpose balm that keeps chapped lips at bay, smoothens out cracked heels, and restores smooth, supple skin to elbows and shins has received a great deal of slack over the years, and for good reason too. Despite its versatility, the petroleum component of Petroleum Jelly makes it harmful for the skin.

I took a deep-dive pore plunge this morning with the Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask!

Scandinavian skincare brand Ole Henriksen took inspiration from their homeland’s spa tradition of ending a hot sauna treatment with a cold plunge into the sea with this delightfully bright turquoise cooling mud mask.

I’ve created two festive looks; one with the classic sparkly eyes and bold red lips, and the other with a more cleaner base and subtler lips. I’m pretty obsessed with the Tarte Winter Wonder Glam Eyeshadow Palette, and used it for both looks.

In the recent months since they’ve launched in the UAE, I’ve become pretty addicted to shopping on the lookfantastic.ae website. This online beauty store stocks everything from skincare, haircare, bath & body and more, and what makes this site more fascinating for me is the fact that they stock so many well-reputed brands that were previously unavailable in our region.

One of these brands happens to be REN Skincare. I’ve seen rave reviews about this brand, and was super excited to find them on lookfantastic.ae

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Sephora Middle East Fall 2019 event and spent a great deal of time at the Kat Von D Beauty stall. Love this tattoo artist turned beauty mogul! I’m a sucker for art, great packaging and surreal shades of color, and Kat seems to effortlessly dish it all out time and time again.

Kat Von D Beauty has now come out with a brand new medium-coverage foundation range, and being a brand that values inclusion of all, the range is launching with 40 shades that cover very fair to very deep shades.

The choice of lipstick shade can transform an entire look, and at Sephora we are really spoilt for choice the rainbow of options.

22nd July to 3rd August 2019 is flagged as ‘Lipstick Week’ at Sephora, and to celebrate, all online orders on Sephora.ae or Sephora.sa get a chance to spin the wheel to win either a full size Sephora Collection Lip Stain, a Huda Beauty Shameless Lip Strobe, a cute Lippie Phone Ring, a set of Multi-branded Duo Minis or even Free Delivery. 

Are you planning to splurge on lipstick this week? Here’s a helpful list of best-selling shades to consider, available at all Sephora stores across the Middle East:
